  • A Classic and a Good Read

    By Purpah Jesus
    Good story, but a little slow at times. Or course you can’t expect everything to be action packed all the time. I always appreciate a story about the descent into madness and this one definitely has just that. I also love an old book by a woman, I wish there were more. Worth the read, especially with the zero price tag on Apple Books.
  • Frankenstein mary Shelly

    By jakecobi
    Saw all the movies related to this tail. And a bio of MaryShelly so I decided to read the original story. Language is a little archaic but interesting and the style is fascinating. Great and good reading. Read it in a couple of days. I recommend it, it is classic.
  • Unbelievable read...

    By GreenLanternZz
    First time to read this classic. I cannot fathom her innate talent with the written word...
  • Very good.

    By AbigailDunham
    As I read this book, I found it to be both wonderful and terrible. The loss of life, the lessons learned, the changes of the heart... All combined into a beautiful, eloquent book. It is a very rare story that can draw tears from my eyes or engage my heart. Well done, Mary Shelly!
  • A haunting gothic masterpiece

    By Kuno72
    Perhaps one of the best horror novels I have ever read, and one of the best novels I have ever read at all. Amazing.

  • All encompassing

    By Morgan, a Level 7 Artist
    A book that will render your thoughts for years to come and transform your view of nature and her serenity.
  • Good if you like philosophical ideas that are dragged out into an entire mind numbing novel

    By ChristianCatLover
    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.
