  • Brilliant and Very Scary

    By Dwardeng
    One of the best Science Fiction/Horror novels ever written. Frankenstein's creature is to be feared, fascinated by and pitied.
  • Wow just wow

    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.
