The title of the novel refers to a scientist, Victor Frankenstein, who learns how to create life and creates a being in the likeness of man, but larger than average and more powerful.
Too long. Too many. I understand it was written a long time ago, but seriously? When I started reading the 1st letter, I read the entire thing 4 TIMES and couldn’t help skipping words. It’s not eye-catching. Wizard of OZ? Understandable. Harry Potter? Easy. Frankenstein is hard to read. Why is it in ‘young adults’? I can read most young adults books. NOT THIS. Sorry if I insulted anybody.
It just not eye catching.
Very touching and poignant towards the end. Well-written and imaginative.
Such an emotional roller coaster!
I’m in love with this book! First time reading it and I can’t believe I have never had the opportunity to read it.
A Classic and a Good Read
By Purpah Jesus
Good story, but a little slow at times. Or course you can’t expect everything to be action packed all the time. I always appreciate a story about the descent into madness and this one definitely has just that. I also love an old book by a woman, I wish there were more. Worth the read, especially with the zero price tag on Apple Books.
Frankenstein mary Shelly
Saw all the movies related to this tail. And a bio of MaryShelly so I decided to read the original story.
Language is a little archaic but interesting and the style is fascinating. Great and good reading.
Read it in a couple of days. I recommend it, it is classic.
First time to read this classic. I cannot fathom her innate talent with the written word...
As I read this book, I found it to be both wonderful and terrible. The loss of life, the lessons learned, the changes of the heart... All combined into a beautiful, eloquent book. It is a very rare story that can draw tears from my eyes or engage my heart.
Well done, Mary Shelly!
A haunting gothic masterpiece
Perhaps one of the best horror novels I have ever read, and one of the best novels I have ever read at all. Amazing.
i dont even read but i love this book
very good. grabs you in makes you want to keep reading
Y’all are the best
Yea, I like Frankenstein, but the true gold is in these reviews. This is where I come to laugh. Cracks me up every time. Thank you, all you reviewers.
