Ok, I get why this book is a high school staple. So much to ponder & debate and the ideas of technology, science, nature, humanity and accountability is still just as relevant today. I switched from audio to print for the last few chapters and I think that helped to move the story along. At times this novel felt weighted & heavy. Slow start, some bumps along the way but ultimately happy to have read this classic. Covers lots of challenge prompts!
You‘re all correct 🤓Frankenstein has picked up ❣️Once Victor returned home, the story has really become engaging. Im on chapter 8 (12 on audio) and hooked.
My first 2 Penguin Classic Clothbounds 😍 I'm so going to be collecting these now!
This novel is a lot more introspective than I expected. Really, this whole story is about interior worlds. Frankenstein, at its heart, is about the shame and guilt of the Doctor, and the loneliness and desperation of his monster. It's all the more impactful when you learn about Mary Shelley's life, and the experiences that inspired her...

Mary Shelley‘s book asks the question “what makes us human?” Frankenstein‘s creation is called a monster, and yet is capable of speech, thought, emotion #HumanNature #Movember @Cinfhen
The idea of creating a monster probably counts as #WeirdScience #NamasteNovember @Eggs

2/5 ⭐️s I probably would have given up on this book if it wasn't for my local book club. So many parts dragged on when it could have been so much shorter. Very different from the stories and movies you get about Frankenstein though.
1- Mary Shelley and Patrick Ness.
2- is be too nervous to ask questions so I‘d just want to listen to them talk and be themselves. All casual and relax. While I imagine this we are having drinks in Al‘s Den in PDX. 😂
3- too many to count. 😝
4- anyone who hasn‘t done this already.
Thanks for the tag @GypsyKat and @UnidragonFrag @UnidragonFrag
A very hard day ended with a bedtime read makes it much better 🥰🤓 am I the only one that gets major Hygge on nights like this?
I attended Alberta Ballet‘s thrilling adaptation of this tale last night. It was outstanding. They transposed the setting to North America and used Trump‘s home in Florida, Mar-a-Lago, as the place where Victor grew up. #modernrelevance
I‘m glad I finally got to read this wonderful story. I‘m shocked at how poorly it‘s been adapted in the movies. Frankenstein “monster” is a creature of depth and feelings wanting only to experience what so many take for granted. The connection of family and friends and the warmth that brings to humans lives. Victor had all those things and his neglect towards his creation lead to the destruction of his loved ones. #TeamSlaughter
Happy Halloween from Frankenpug!
(Yeah, yeah - I know Frankenstein is the doctor, not the monster, but Dr Frankenpug‘s Monster doesn‘t work for the pun!)
I am using the tagged book for this prompt for my #52booksin52weeks challenge as even though I technically read 3 gothic books and I am trying to start a Halloween tradition to read/listen to this collection as I bought it last year and read/listen to them for the first time. This year it fits this prompt nicely.
“As night approached I found myself at the entrance of the #cemetery... Everything was silent except the leaves of the trees, which were gently agitated by the wind; the night was nearly dark, and the scene would have been solemn and affecting even to an uninterested observer. The spirits of the departed seemed to flit around and to cast a shadow, which was felt but not seen, around the head of the mourner.” #QuotsyOct19
I greatly need a friend who would have sense enough not to despise me as a romantic, and affection enough for me to endeavor to regulate my mind.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ When I (finally) read Frankenstein last year, it swiftly earned a spot in my favorites. Young Shelley‘s gothic horror classic is bold and intricate, horrific and touching. It‘s evokes compassion in unexpected ways. A brilliant and scarily timeless work of art.
This is by far one of my favorite books of all time. Shelley is a bad ass! There‘s no ounce of Hollywood and it‘s vernacular of Frank that can convey this story
