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!!!!

If you only know of Frankenstein from the movies and have never read the book you are in for a treat. There is SO much more to the story. Excellent.
