In the frozen wastes north of Russia, a lone seaward vessel seeks the elusive Northwest Passage. Suddenly they sight a dog sled with a gargantuan figure in the shape of a man, driving the dogs northward to sure oblivion. The following day, they find another sled. This sled is filled with a European near death, and when asked what he is chasing, he simply replies, to seek one who fled from me.

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

    " 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. "
