    So different to the film I’m afraid the film doesn’t give it justice. If you haven’t read this I would highly recommend it, and there’s a moral wi could all learn from this thank you for this precious gem of a read.
  • A Journey.

    Reading this book has been nothing short of a journey, both for myself as the reader and for the characters in the book. Without giving too much away I will say that the ending was actually very sad, and not one that I had expected. In documenting the joys and sorrows faced by the characters in the novel, Shelley touched on a number of themes: Companionship, Love and Loss, Isolation, the meaning of life and the pursuit for happiness. These themes mix with each other to form what has been an enjoyable read. I would highly recommend this book.

    I chose this classic book to read for my English class and this did not disappoint Shelley shows 2 sides to the “monster”, giving him a sense of compassion and making the story even more intriguing than everybody already views it as.

    After having read snippets of the novel in class throughout my school and college years I finally decided to give this classic a read and have to say it was extremely disappointing. Shelley's use of language has opened up my vocabulary and gained me some literary knowledge that I lacked in previously, but the actual story itself is beyond boring. It's 700 pages of irrelevant descriptions of landscapes, which were not detailed enough that I could build up an accurate image of what was being described and the rest is merely depressed ramblings of a mad man. The monster being portrayed as the villain is very simplistic and unfair, as I believe Viktor to be the true monster in this story. His own self loathing and inability to make a change makes his character unbearable and hard to sympathise with and he consistently fails to take responsibility for his own actions, therefore projecting his own flaws onto his creation. I was proud to have reached the end, but this novel is definitely one I wouldn't re-read in the future as I found it to be lacking in suspense and a majority of the time I found myself falling asleep whilst reading as it was just that dull.

    I spent so long hating this book it came as quite a surprise to me that I actually rather enjoyed it. It's a difficult read with the gratuitous use of description, particularly of nature, but the poignancy of the end makes up for it. For all their faults and actions, Shelley makes it difficult not to sympathise with both Creator and Creature in the closing pages of the novel, and to see the terrible waste of life in both that of the victims of their actions and the two 'monsters' themselves. It is easy to see why this novel is regarded as a classic of English literature. Well worth a read, if you can spare the time.
