I am a literature major and I have read, analyzed and studied this book and also taught it! I love it. This book is packed full of themes and ideas and a very insightful look at human nature. This is not an easy read but instead one meant to be studied, savored and enjoyed. Highly Recommended!!!!
I am saddened that the movies missed much of the story of Frankenstein. Turning this classic into a generic mindless monster. The horror is in the anatomy project that creates life and in the thoughts that surround who is responsible for a being when it is created or born.
