    I didn't expect the book to be so great at times I just couldn't stop reading. Highly recommend as some kind of book report or project. If you haven't read this book your missing out.

    A very disappointing book. I felt I should read it as it has been considered a "classic", but I fail to see any merit in it. The ravings of a weird mind are tedious to read. Sorry I wasted my time.

    Excellent read, saw the movie a number of years ago, I could hardly close the book.
  • Frankenstein's monster

    By RockLobsterLove
    A classic of course. However, being very different than what's usually shown in movies or comics. The true nature of this story is not a monster hated by society, but about the selfishness potential of men and our capacity to bestow pain on others without expecting any in return. A must read novel.

    It was very well written and the plot tied together nicely, but the idea was horrible!! Nothing happy ever happened during the entire story!

  • Great Book

    By SilenceTearz
    I had to read this book for class. It was amazing and you won’t regret reading this book. Mary Shelley had a terrible life, she had 5 miscarriges, her husband died out at sea. You could tell she implimented some of her life into this book.

    A sad lesson to those who so choose to play God. Very sad tale. For humanity's sake, it is far better to live, laugh and love than to plunder the earth and be content with its own destruction.
