One word, in truth, had alarmed her more than battles or sieges, during which she trusted Raymond’s high command would exempt him from danger. That word, as yet it was not more to her, was PLAGUE. This enemy to the human race had begun early in June to raise its serpent-head on the shores of the Nil...

I just want to say that I finished reading this book and I'm glad I did. I really loved it. It read like a poem of a tale told about Victor Frankenstein and his monster. It was relayed to Captain Robert Walton as he writes four letters to Margaret Saville. The story begins when Victor was found up...

„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?"😢

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. The descriptions of the nature, the landscapes and the wheather are splendid and the story of the creature is heartbreaking. You cannot help but ...

So, after having spent the past weekend and the better part of last night and today tying up half a dozen half-finished bingo reads that, naturally, hadn't shown any progress whatsoever while I was exiled on planet work overload, for the time being I'm back on track. 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.

FRANKENSTEIN - This horror story has elements of mystery, supernatural, a gloomy setting and a character that bridges the worlds of the living and undead. The result is arguably the most identified classic gothic novel. The genesis of Frankenstein came to Mary Shelley in a dream. She was a part of a...
