Frankestein
Frankestein | Mary Shelley
Europa, siglo XVIII. Durante el apogeo de la proliferacin cientfica, el capitn de un barco que se encuentra navegando por las aguas del Polo Norte rescata al fsico Victor Frankenstein. Al borde de la muerte, el doctor Frankenstein confiesa que se encuentra en plena persecucin de lo que ha sido su ms macabro y monstruoso experimento y origen de todos sus males. Con sus propias manos ha dado vida a un ser de aspecto abominable, que se ha vuelto en contra de l y desde entonces ha tenido que enfrentarse al rechazo y el maltrato de un mundo que lo aisl hasta la desesperacin. La desolacin y el odio del engendro lo llevaron a cometer un sinfn de atrocidades que perduraron hasta la muerte del doctor, moderno Prometeo, que intent desafiar los lmites de la vida y la muerte. En esta obra filosfica del terror, cuya idea primera naci a partir de una pesadilla, Mary Shelley denuncia con crudeza y sinceridad la ambicin del hombre por dominar las leyes naturales, empresa absurda que expresa un malestar ancestral. Frankenstein, publicada hace casi doscientos aos, ya forma parte del imaginario de la cultura universal.

This novel was nothing like I thought it would be. It was perfectly dark and gothic and not a story about a monster but a story about mankind and their relationship with God.

Europe was one part of the world #frozen due to the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora and the debris it sent into the atmosphere. One famous story, Mary Shelley‘s Frankenstein was being written during 1816 the year without a summer.

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.

cleoh Oh no! This is one of my favourite classics, so I‘m always so sad when others don‘t like it 😭 sorry you didn‘t enjoy it! 1mo

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. 😝

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

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.

@Schnoebs

Schnoebs 🙌🙌🙌 killing it. I just finished the second book in the Themis files which I think I‘m going to use for the military prompt. Reading another book now and hopefully can find a prompt for it as well 1mo

“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

ElizaMarie @Reviewsbylola : I feel like books that I was forced to read for school I HATED but then afterwards when I re-read them I actually really liked it. I think its the rebel in me that just didn't want to be told what to do? Anyway, I wasn't forced to read this one or anything but... I chose to read it this month and I really enjoyed it! So all in all what I am saying is... try a re-read! 2mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 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.
