    " This was boring and anti climatic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cara | 2/11/2014

    " Read this a long time ago and would like to read again with others. I remember it being a challenging read but a great story and when finished you feel so terrible and so much pity for the "monster". "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paul | 2/11/2014

    " I don't want to talk about it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Corynn | 2/9/2014

    " Not one of my favorite books I've ever read in school that's for sure, and quite possibly the worst ending I've ever read. BUT the story was sort of interesting... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Ruben | 2/2/2014

    " I give this book a 5 because I loved it! It is a sad but romantic story. The love between the monster and his creator is not visible till the end of the novel, but it shows that even a monster had good intentions. I really enjoyed this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Imran Abhatti | 1/26/2014

    " It was ok but the pieces did not match I t got confusing at the end "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richi Thomas | 1/20/2014

    " One of my favorites from Brit Lit! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catie | 1/16/2014

    " For a classic, of course it was good and I enjoyed it. We had to read it for my Literary Study. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Estime | 1/7/2014

    " I found this book to be surprisingly entertaining. It was an older book, but once I got past a couple of pages, I just fell right into the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg Kastigar | 1/2/2014

    " I was really surprised by this book, particularly how well Shelley captured the male ego and its hubris. She gives a frighteningly prescient account of how man can be so easily seduced by power of creation and the pursuit to play God. It can be slow at times but is always interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Long Williams | 12/17/2013

    " Tried to love it as much as Dracula, but the story got a little wayward in parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Battlepaint | 12/10/2013

    " A much quainter book then I expected, with no unneeded fanfare. This book really was just a statement on nature vs nurture and what truly makes the monster. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kxk6419 | 12/5/2013

    " It was good but if you don't like classics I don't recommend this book to you "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassie | 10/4/2013

    " I had to read over the summer in high school and LOVED that it was nothing like what I expected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Rumpho-kennedy | 9/12/2013

    " A book all my Honors' students at UMaine read and loved. Decided I should read it and I did enjoy it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johan Englen | 6/4/2013

    " The beutiful use of the english language parred with the romantisism and tragic plot line was a great experiance of emotion. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christo Fogelberg | 5/1/2013

    " A great story, but one which drowns in verbal flourish and suffers from a mono-character perspective throughout, everyone else is just a foil. Could do with a massive edit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaina | 4/26/2013

    " My favorite book of all time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Taylor | 4/6/2013

    " I surprisingly didn't hate this book. I found it interesting to learn about Mary Shelley's life, and I didn't mind reading this story that she managed to come up with. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Burke | 2/15/2013

    " A fascinating read given the era and the author's age and circumstances. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 1/8/2013

    " One of the strangest books I've ever read but enjoyable because of that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ioana | 4/15/2012

    " Well, i only new 'frankenstein' from 'popular culture' (e.g. representations on TV). Mary Shelley's book is at points boring, at points 'old', but it certainly is worth reading, if only for the way the relationship between creation and creator is described. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krystal Johnson | 4/13/2012

    " Perhaps my favorite classic novel! Beautiful writing and a bold statement by a woman author during the Romantic period! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 4/10/2012

    " Well guys? Can't say a woman can't write a Classic monster story as well as any man, having read this book! I am a fan of all Classic monster books! Dracula, The Werewolf, The Mummy etc. Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein" ranks as equal to them all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryan | 12/6/2011

    " Good book. I really enjoy how the author makes you sympathize with both the monster and his creator by showing flaws in both of their thinking. Well written and a delight to read, recommended for those who like literary books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George | 11/5/2011

    " I love the narrative style that effortlessly weaves between Walton's letters to his sister, Frankstein's first-person account of his life and struggles, and chapters told from the monster's perspective. What can I say? It ain't a classic for nothing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronald | 11/1/2011

    " Mary Shelley's classic story of a young doctor's quest for mortality gone very wrong. His created creature murders all he loves to try to get the doctor to create a mate for himself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marydcollett | 10/31/2011

    " Read this for book group. It was very different than what I expected. Frankenstein reminded me more of Big Foot than the monster I expected. It explores some interesting subjects such as what makes us human, the fruits of a revenge-driven life, etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dennis | 10/30/2011

    " A work of genius for its time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel | 10/29/2011

    " Um livro realmente impressionante. A definição de "horror gótico". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johnny | 10/28/2011

    " I can't believe it too me this long to read Frankenstein. Beautiful. Absolutely wonderful. Shelley truly created a masterpiece with this work. "
