This was enlightening and much different from what most people think of as Frankenstein.

Thanks Izzy5000. I've seen Frankenstein in the movie so it will be very interesting to read the book. It's fun to compare a book and a film. Often I like the book most.

Backside: Frankenstein was Mary Shelley's immensely powerful contribution to the ghost stories which she, Percy Shelley, and Byron devised one wet summer in Switzerland. Its protagonist is a young student of natural philosophy, who learns the secret of imparting life to a creature constructed from relics of the dead, with horrific consequences.

Edit 7:e July2016: It is a surreal but fascinating story that Mary Shelley wrote. Frankenstein succeeds in creating a monster. Yet I wonder if humanity had not alter the monster's life story. It feels like a story that wants to tell you that it may be people's fear of those who look different, that creates evil actions. The book is interesting.
