Format: Paperback
This book goes beyond being a classic, it began a whole new theme/meme/storyline of science out-of-control.

That said, it made for a very interesting re-read; I'd read it as a teenager, and recently read it again for book club.

First person POV story told from the captain of the ship headed to the North Pole, embedded within which is the story of Victor Frankenstein, told in first person POV, embedded within which is the story of the monster, told in first person POV - I don't think that would fly, in a modern novel, and it's somewhat clunky here.

Also, to a modern reader, the language may seem rather flowery and verbose, but I'm guessing to a reader in 1831 it was fairly tight, with a page count in my version of under 250. Certainly there isn't the endless digressions on barely related subjects as in Moby Dick or Les Miserables.

Shelley hits the requisite points - chills and horror, especially in the first scene where the monster is standing by the bed? Yes. Sympathy for the captain, Frankenstein, the monster, and all associated parties? Yes.

Of them all, it is hardest to feel sympathy for Frankenstein. Why doesn't he TELL someone, or ask for help? People - people he theoretically loves - are dying because he is too proud/ashamed to confess what he did, until the end when he tells the sea captain. But this IS a recurring theme of human nature, people continue to behave this way, so it's a faithful reflection of human frailty.

IMO, this is one of the books that every literate person should read at least once.
