By avoiding too much scientific indulgence, this book remains relevant despite having been written nearly years ago. Check it out! Oct 21, Bob rated it really liked it. Fascinating story. A little long winded but worth it. It's the real story of the Frankenstein monster by his creator, Mary Shelley. The movie, with Robert Deniro comes closest to the book then any other Frankenstein film I've seen. If you can handle the long descriptive sometimes flowery text, it will be worth your time.
A little slow going at times, but I enjoyed it. Be prepared. It's not like reading a comic book. Jan 09, Chelsea added it. It was a great book. Mary Shelley focused on some very important themes such as: the use of knowledge for good or evil, invasion of technology into the modern world, and to not judge a book by its cover.
