Found in a Little Free Library in Fort Hunt, VA.

Forget all the Frankenstein stereotypes you know. Forget Igor, grave robbing, neck bolts, electricity, and mobs of angry villagers carrying torches. Victor Frankenstein is a student of natural philosophy (what science was evidently called back then) who plays with chemicals in order to create life from dead tissue. The monster, which remains nameless throughout the story, so frightens Victor that he runs away and tries to forget about it. The monster, initially gentle but driven to cruelty by the repeated condemnation by mankind, vows to ruin Victor's life in return for creating his misery. It's an interesting story, one that touches less obviously on the ethics of scientific experimentation, but says quite a lot about the unfortunate importance of beauty in society. Victor is more naive and pitiful than evil or mad. Definitely one worth reading, but don't go in expecting anything like those famous old movies.

To be released into the wild for others to enjoy.

Gothic thriller. The original classic, "Frankenstein" written by Mary Shelly is nothing like the Dr. Frankenstein and the monster he created which got out of human control as portrayed in modern and popular culture and movies.

Dr. Frankensein's creation is physically monstrous but agile and swift not lumbering. The monster is highly intelligent, has deep feelings , wants to be loved, have a wife and friends and to be able fit into society.

"It is the portrayal of a scientist who oversteps the bounds of conscience, and of a monster brought to life in an alien world, ever more desperately attempting to escape the torture of his solitude." Signet Classics

I spotted this on the table today during our BCinDC meetup. I've earread a copy of this book, so I'm leaving my thoughts here so I can follow the book's journey in the future.

I spent months in 7th grade studying this book with my English class. It was really interesting to analyze its many themes so in-depth.
