I liked this book!! I was one of the very few in my class to actually enjoy reading it. If you're not paying attention it can confuse you because it's a story within a story within a story, but so good!
Although a common misconception is that Frankenstein is the name of the monster. WRONG!
Victor Frankenstein is the doctor that makes the creature. The creation is referred to as just that: the creation, creature, demon, etc. He doesn't have a name.
In the words of my friend "Don't read
Frankenstein at night when you're home by yourself.
It was a little scary, but scary's kinda nice. Gets your heart pumping. Although I'm not one for "terrifying." "Scary" is good. :]
I like this book!
