by Mary Shelley Frankenstein starts out in a format that I usually don't like much, that of reading letters that give information, but it is done with strangely beautiful writing and I do think I would have read the whole book in this format if it had been written that way. However, this only form...

Abandoned at page 209. I keep trying to come up with reasons to continue reading but can think of none. It's not what I expected and I'm just not enjoying it at all.

What a great reading experience this was, I loved the story, the writing and vivid descriptions. Completely different from the film that I remember and the audible version with the narration by Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) was an added bonus. It’s difficult to believe that this gothic fiction story w...

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...

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?"😢

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. It also occurred after miscarriage and a death of a child. Upon reading Mary Shelley’s diaries, one cannot help bu...
