    " Honestly, one of the only books I've read that I truly despise. Yuck. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luke Stephenson | 2/16/2014

    " A truly classic allegory, and even better for being written by a Woman. It really makes you wonder how the diminutive perception of the Frankenstein Monster ever came about. "

    " Of course being a classic, this book was beautifully written. Classics are written in a way we never will again be able to accomplish. The language in this book (being written so long ago) was a little dry and sometimes hard to follow. However, if you are patient and can get past that, the actual tale this book tells is beautiful and tragic. It took me a very long to finish it due to the language, but when I was finished, I was incredibly happy I took the time and trudged on through it. The story is well worth it in the end. I must also add I am completely disgusted with the Hollywood version of this story. It is not even close to the original novel. I must say I much prefer the book version (which really holds true with any novel) to the version Hollywood created. I expected something completely different, having seen Frankenstein depicted on television in many different movies and shows. I was pleasantly surprised at the ACTUAL story. "

    " Yay. I really enjoyed this. It's always nice to have assigned reading that I don't actually hate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Riddle | 2/6/2014

    " A fantastic book written by a very young woman at the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zane | 1/31/2014

    " It's unfortunate that this is Shelley's only novel that is actually worth reading; this book is her finest hour, and what an hour it is. I think the very sad tale of Frankenstein and his monster reminded me how important it is to keep a tight grip on that which makes us human: compassion. "

    " Love the origin story of this novel and that a sister almost 200 years ago, but the storytelling sucks -- full of holes! Does not stand the test of time and makes you really appreciate how far the modern novel has come. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiria | 11/29/2013

    " So good. It definitely made me question what makes a monster. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mitzi | 11/18/2013

    " I find it more and more interesting each year. "

    " I can't say I liked it entirely... It was boring at times.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla Miller | 10/16/2013

    " First read this book in college and I cried and cried. It was so heartbreaking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 6/4/2013

    " One of my all-time favorite classics. Talks so much about responsibility for the things we create--ahem, children. I love this book! Actually, this book ranks in my top 5. How's that for an avid reader?-top 5! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Psykeactiv1 | 5/24/2013

    " This book has changed my life forever..Must Read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn Calderbank | 5/7/2013

    " Very nice, liked the questions, liked the exploration of man and monster, and very much liked that Frankenstein is the name of the scientist not his creation "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victor Alejandro Gregory | 4/4/2013

    " Read it in high school, as a senior, and I totally thought it was going to be that weird version of the Frankenstein that we are all used to. This novel changed my point of view towards Frankenstein and I'm glad I got to meet the original version of the so call "monster". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arthur dos Santos | 3/20/2013

    " A quick reading, but an essential one. In case you have seen the movie Frankenstein (1931), you must read this book anyway, 'cause it's a totally different (and better) story. It's a must read in every sense of the term. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerre Ward | 1/23/2013

    " Prefer the original 1818 text, following versions were edited for political/social themes and propaganda. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Callie | 12/14/2012

    " Victor Frankenstein is a whiny little hypocritical bitch and the monster's only better because more often than not he actually has something to be upset about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Ruben | 11/14/2012

    " 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 Jennifer Taylor | 5/28/2012

    " 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. "
