Reviews

  • Good if you like philosophical ideas that are dragged out into an entire mind numbing novel

    If you like reading for 200+ pages about characters that all share the same, old fashioned English voice and that constantly feel the need to describe the majestic mountains of Jura for the fifteenth time in the book, despite being described only two chapters ago, this book is for you. Save yourself from this misery, for it is not the monster or Victor Frankenstein that is horrifying in this book; it is how much you'll want both of them to get shot in the head so that the book can end and you can continue your life again.

    One of the best Science Fiction/Horror novels ever written. Frankenstein's creature is to be feared, fascinated by and pitied.

    I didn't expect the book to be so great at times I just couldn't stop reading. Highly recommend as some kind of book report or project. If you haven't read this book your missing out.

    A very disappointing book. I felt I should read it as it has been considered a "classic", but I fail to see any merit in it. The ravings of a weird mind are tedious to read. Sorry I wasted my time.

    A classic of course. However, being very different than what's usually shown in movies or comics. The true nature of this story is not a monster hated by society, but about the selfishness potential of men and our capacity to bestow pain on others without expecting any in return. A must read novel.

    It was very well written and the plot tied together nicely, but the idea was horrible!! Nothing happy ever happened during the entire story!
