    My apologies, but this review is going to be a bit frantic due to my brain being so oxygen starved by the novel s breath stealing gorgeousness that I m feeling a bit light headed So please forgive the random thoughts.First Mary Shelley I love you Second Dear Hollywood you lying dung pile of literature savaging, no talent hacks you got this all wrong Please learn to read and get yourself a copy of the source material before you FUBAR it again Third My heart shattered for the monster and I haven t felt this strong a desire to hug it out, bitch since reading Grendel and Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter The wretch is so well drawn and powerfully portrayed that he form the emotional ligament for the entire story He is among the finest creations the written form has to offer Fourth As surprised as I am to be saying this, this novel has ousted Dracula as my all time favorite of the classic horror stories sorry Bram, but the good evil, sad, desperate loneliness of the orphaned monster trying to find a purpose and to define himself in the world trumps The Count Five No one can conceive the variety of feelings which bore me onwards, like a hurricane, in the first enthusiasm of success Life and death a...

    I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other From the 1994 movieThe worst thing about this novel is how distorted it has become by constant movie adaptations and misinformed ideas about the nature of Frankenstein and his monster For years, like many others, I thought Frankenstein was the name of that slightly green dude with the bolts in his neck Nuh uh.Did Frankenstein scare me Did it have me staying awake and sleeping with the light on, jumping at every slight creak in the house Was I terrified of the monster and technology and the dangers of playing God No Because the beauty of this story is that it isn t the one so many people think it is Which is almost my favourite thing about it This book is not a Halloween kind of story with Halloween kind of monsters This story is heartbreakingly sad once I falsely hoped to meet the beings who, pardoning my outward form, would love me for the excellent qualities which I was capable of unfolding The book offers many intere...

    No stars That s right Zero, zip nada.It s been almost 30 years since I ve detested a book this much I didn t think anything could be worse then Kafka s The Metamorphosis Seems I m never too old to be wrong This time, I don t have the excuse that I was forced to read this for high school lit class Oh no, this time I read this of my own volition and for fun Yeah, fun Kinda like sticking bamboo shoots between my fingernails type of fun Watching paint dry fun Going to an Air Supply concert fun.OK, to be fair, I need to tell you what I liked about this.Well, Mary Shelley was a teen when she wrote this Color me impressed At 19 I was just looking for my next college boyfriend, not penning the great English classic Kudos to Mary for that.Otherwise, I can t think of anything to admire in this book, apart from the fact that it s the only book in my reading history where I actually noted EVERY SINGLE PAGE NUMBER and mentally counted down the time I d be finished.Why did I persist, you may ask Well, at the point where the pain became mind numbing, I decided to channel my inner John McCain and just survive the tortur...

    So.I finished it.Warning If you are a fan of classic literature and or are utterly devoid of a sense of humor this review may not be for you.Also Yes, I realize that I m a moron with zero literary credibility So, stop reading right now if the sound of an idiot whistling out of their asshole bothers you too terribly Sure, you can comment below and tell me how stupid I am, but it probably won t make me a better person Or will it I ve always wondered what the real Frankenstein story was likeand now I know.Sadly, sometimes the fantasy is better than the reality.And the reality is, this book is a big steaming pile of poo.It s an old timey horror story, right Not so much.I mean, I wasn t expecting it to actually be scary, but I thought it might be slightly creepy Unfortunately, the only horror in the story centered around me having to keep turning the pages.Unless Beware mortal You will DIE of boredom Oooga Booga Booga Yep Truly frightening.It starts like this An upper crust guy sails off to the Arctic t...

    It s been fifty years since I had read Frankenstein, and, now after a recent second reading I am pleased to know that the pleasures of that first reading have been revived Once again just as it was in my teens I was thrilled by the first glimpse of the immense figure of the monster, driving his sled across the arctic ice, and marveled at the artful use of narrative frames within frame, each subsequent frame leading us closer to the heart of the novel, until we hear the alienated yet articulate voice of the creature himself In addition, I admired the equally artful way the novel moves backward through the same frames until we again reach the arctic landscape which is the scene of the novel s beginningand its end.This time through, I was particularly struck with how Mary must have been influenced by the novels of her father The relentless hounding of one man by another who feels his life has been poisoned by that man s irresponsible curiosity is a theme taken straight out of Godwin s Caleb Williams, and the cautionary account of a monomaniac who gradually deprives him...

    My food is not that of man I do not destroy the lamb and the kid, to glut my appetite acorns and berries afford me sufficient nourishment My companion will be of the same nature as myself, and will be content with the same fare We shall make our bed of dried leaves the sun will shine on us as on man, and will ripen our food The picture I present to you is peaceful and human The Creature s diet is unmistakably vegetarian Vegetarianism becomes a way for the creature to renounce his creator by demonstrating his inclusive ethics Indeed, he includes within his moral code animals as well as man, but learns through his experience with the world that both he and animals are excluded from the moral compass of humanity they are not on the same level I find this entire representation fascinating, that much so I wanted to add to my review here I spent a very long time last year researching Percy Shelley s poetry and how his politics are ultimately shaped by his diet choice Some of that content is latent in Mary s work it does not take the forefront of the narrative, but it is certainly there for a reader who is willing to look for it There s much here to use for a proper developed argument, arguments I am eventually going to explore fully in my eventual PhD project One of my chapters will be a critical address of Frankenstein and The Last Man in conjunction with politics and diet Indeed, Mary Shelley s Frankenst...

    REREAD UPDATE September 2018 One of my bookclubs Click to check out Reading List Completists is reading this for September 2018 I figure it was a good time for a reread since it was one of my favorites and it has been over 20 years since I read it I did enjoy it again this time and it stands up to the 5 star review and designation of classic There were a few slow parts mainly when Dr Frankenstein would stop the narrative to wax poetical about something but, not enough t take a way from my overall enjoyment.I still recommend this for everyone and be sure to check out my full original review below.ORIGINAL REVIEW This is definitely one of my favorite books I was required to read in High School Also, it is my favorite of the classic horror novels It is perfectly written, suspenseful, and is a bit thought provoking than scary One of the best ways I can compare it to other classic horror novels is to Dracula which I read recently Dracula has so much repetitive filler that you do not find in Frankenstein, which is the main reason I find Frankenstein to be a enjoyable book.Also, I would say that this is a novel of the human condition than an actual horror novel Some terrifying things happen, but it is the monster within all of us that may end up being terrifying Funny side story when I read this in High School, it was around the same time that the Kenneth Branaugh adaptation came out at the theaters We were all encouraged to go se...
