Victor Frankenstein thinks he has found the secret of life. He takes parts from dead people and builds a new 'man'. But this monster is so big and frightening that everyone runs away from him - even Frankenstein himself! The monster is like an enormous baby who needs love. But nobody gives him love, and soon he learns to hate. And, because he is so strong, the next thing he learns is how to kill....

    " The more you read it, the more you can feel that it really has a lot of depth than what the surface story is telling. Frankenstein as a modern monster icon is really missing the point about the Frankenstein story. Read it slowly and reflect on the emotions portrayed and I found it a satisfying read. "

    " One of my favourite novels. Frankenstein acts as a warning: The less you know, the happier you will be. "

    " This book made a considerable influence on me, moreso than any other book I've read. "

    " A rather captivating read! I also learned something modern America seems to be ignorant of--Frankenstein is the doctor, not the monster! Honestly, Shelley's British writing is beautiful and, her mother is Mary Wollstonecraft--what's not to love!? "

    " I read this in high school. I was leery of reading it because everyone knows that Frankenstein is supposed to be scary. This is not the case in Shelley's version. It was very enjoyable. "

    " A must read classic, and if you don't know the story of how Mary Shelley came to win a bet with her famous husband and Lord Byron by writing this book, make sure you look it up. It just adds to the greatness of this masterpiece. Shelley is a true original. "

    " Frankenstein is this kind of classic book that I'd love to have all over in my bookshelf. I've read it twice and I still got lots of excitement while reading it again. I highly recommend this to everyone in all ages, you won't feel regret. "
