Frankenstein The title of the novel refers to a scientist, Victor Frankenstein, who learns how to create life and creates a being in the likeness of man, but larger than average and more powerful.
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.

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.
For an English class
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.
Wat was shelley thinking?
Read in English
Good but confusing book at times- read this in English (I'm in year 9) . We were aloud to use our phones!
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.

A fantastic tale. A moving story. An absolute must read
Such a great read. Read it everyday to work... Loved it!
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.
Forgot my book at school!
I forgot my book at school so I had to get it on my iPad and I realised it was free!! And it was the exact same book so I am really happy and the book was ok but it saved my life from getting a bad grade at school!!!
Mary Shelley Written when she was only 19, Frankenstein is Mary Shelley's most famous novel. This gothic horror classic tells the story of the brilliant but tortured scientist Victor Frankenstein and the monster he built from exhumed body parts. Often interpreted as warning against the changes that science and the industrial revolution brought upon humanity, this sorrowful retelling of the creation myth has had an unparalleled influence on literature and popular culture and has been hailed as a forerunner of modern science fiction.

This original version is much more true to the spirit of the author's original intentions than the heavily revised 1831 edition, edited by Shelley, in part, because of pressure to make the story more conservative. Many scholars prefer the 1818 text to the more common 1831 edition.

Shelley had travelled in the region of Geneva, where much of the story takes place, and the topics of galvanism and other similar occult ideas were themes of conversation among her companions, particularly her future husband, Percy Shelley. The storyline emerged from a dream. Mary, Percy, Lord Byron, and John Polidori decided to have a competition to see who could write the best horror story. After thinking for weeks about what her possible storyline could be, Shelley dreamt about a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made. She then wrote Frankenstein.

Mary Shelley Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read
At the age of eighteen, Mary Shelley, while staying in the Swiss Alps with her lover Percy Shelley, Lord Byron, and others, conceived the tale of Dr. Victor Frankenstein and the monster he brings to life. The resulting book, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, is a dark parable warning against the risks of scientific and creative endeavor, the corrupting influence of technology and progress, and the dangers of knowledge without understanding. Frankenstein was an instant bestseller on publication in 1818 and has long been regarded as a masterpiece of suspense, a classic of nineteenth-century Romanticism and Gothic horror, and the prototype of the science fiction novel. Though it has spawned countless imitations and adaptations, it remains the most powerful story of its kind.

Mary Shelley A timeless, terrifying tale of one man’s obsession to create life—and the monster that became his legacy.
Mary Shelley began writing Frankenstein when she was only eighteen. At once a Gothic thriller, a passionate romance, and a cautionary tale about the dangers of science, Frankenstein tells the story of devoted science student Victor Frankenstein. Obsessed with discovering the cause of generation and life, and bestowing animation upon lifeless matter, Frankenstein assembles a human being from stolen body parts; but upon bringing it to life, he recoils in horror at the creature’s hideousness. Tormented by isolation and loneliness, the once-innocent creature turns to evil and unleashes a campaign of murderous revenge against his creator, Dr. Frankenstein.
Frankenstein, an instant bestseller and an important ancestor of both the horror and science-fiction genres, not only tells a terrifying story, but also raises profound, disturbing questions about the very nature of life and the place of humankind within the cosmos: What does it mean to be human? What responsibilities do we have to each other? How far can we go in tampering with Nature? In our age, filled with news of organ donation, genetic engineering, and bio-terrorism, these questions are more relevant than ever.
