This was my third read of the story. Just a quick note that my rating refers to the book only. While I have a lot of love for some of "the monster's" story, especially the parts of the story that are narrated by "the monster", this is not a favourite book. Like most other Gothic classics, it dr...

„Frankenstein“ (Untertitel: „The Modern Prometheus“) von Mary Shelley ist meiner Meinung nach Pflichtlektüre, interessiert man sich für Fantastik- und Science-Fiction-Literatur. 1818 anonym erstveröffentlicht, entwickelte es sich zu Shelleys bekanntestem Werk, das die Pop-Kultur wie kein zweites prä...

"I am malicious because I am miserable; am I not shunned and hated by all of mankind? You, my creator, would tear me to pieces, and triumph; remember that, and tell me why I should pity man more than he pities me?"😢

It is said that Frankenstein is about the horror and despair of giving birth. Mary Shelley wrote it after a dream she had, a dream that occurred after an evening of ghosts in Geneva.

I have finally conquered Frankenstein. And it has been okay. There are things that I Iike about this book and there are things that I don´t like about it.

And thus I am happy to finally ...

This is the first time I read the classic Frankenstein. I've seen movies and read variations. They always make the monster seem so relatable. However, after reading the original story, I find the monster to be malevolent and detestable. It wasn't his fault that Victor gave him life and made him hide...

A classic and groundbreaking novel expertly narrated by Dan Stevens. I haven't read this since high school, and so I had forgotten a lot. Add in the lovely narration, and it was like experiencing the story for the first time all over again. It did get a little overly descriptive at times though.

The only saving grace is I chose to get the audio and had Dan Stevens read it to me during my morning commute. I would never had finished it otherwise. Not a fan of this classic.
