Frankenstein
Frankenstein | Mary Shelly
Victor Frankenstein has an aptitude for science and whilst at university he discovers a secret that allows him to impart life to non-living matter, and so his creation is born. The creature is not quite what Victor expected and so he flees in fear. Desperately alone the creature begs for a mate so as to have someone who wont fear him. Victor reluctantly agrees but, fearing the creature to be evil, he changes his mind after imaging them to breed and create a danger to mankind. The creature decides he must have revenge and Frankenstein is plunged into his very worst nightmare.

Finished my reread of Frankenstein and oh my god I wish I didn't pick it up. I don't remember how I felt about the book when I read it for English class in high school but as an adult I find both Frankenstein and his monster insufferable. Going to cleanse my palate with an embroidery kit.

Day 5: Can you guess my favorite classic novel?!?! I have used this novel to teach my students so much about humanity and the dangers of search for progress without ethical considerations. And Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley is one bad ass!!

marleed I was so surprised that when I finally read this book last year, it was a 5* read! The book is so much better than any adaption I‘ve seen. I love your collection! 2w

I read this book in class and it was not something that I would usually pick. However, every chapter was exiting and I am glad I read it. I really like the structure of the story; starting and ending with letters. I also like that the story feels like Frankenstein is telling you personally. Overall, Frankenstein by Mary Shelly is a really exiting and tragic book. I recommend it to anyone into science fiction! 🎖🎖🎖🎖

3✨ I struggle with classics so this one took me a long time to read. I like that I now know more about this story. A lot of it was what I have seen or heard. The poetic nature of the words pulling together was beautiful and challenging. I‘ll probably read it again to gain even further understanding in the future. This was on my TBR so I am also counting it for #WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleighers @StayCurious

1️⃣ Ingolstadt, Germany ?? where Frankenstein creates his monster. I was born in Augsburg, which only about an hour from there.

2️⃣ Today I am grateful for nice weather. Currently cloudy and 66° with a high of 75°. Might be a good day to enjoy a walk outside. ☁️ ☀️

I finished this today while the weather was cold and rainy, which felt fitting for this gothic classic. The pace was a little slow, but the story was great and amazingly written. I really enjoyed it and its commentary on society‘s treatment of those who are different, pridefulness and fallibility, feeling isolated, nature, and revenge.

Although I can appreciate this book for all the wonderful ways it helped inspire future authors, I just found it slow and difficult to get through.

Mary Shelley does have some beautiful writing in this book, but I just wish the story had moved at a little faster pace.

Happy National Frankenstein Day Everyone!!!

Today‘s a day to recognize Mary Shelly and her book in tons of fun ways. Read Frankenstein, watch the movie, make Frankenstein shaped cookies, color pictures of the monster, or stumble around like him when he was first created (me before coffee) all day (you can dress up too).

Bookwomble There's a wonderful portrait of Elsa Lanchester in the National Portrait Gallery. It's hung in the same room as Mervyn Peake, Arthur Conan Doyle and Aldous Huxley (unless I'm just gathering them all together in memory!). We paid her a visit before going to see a production of Young Frankenstein a few years ago. 3mo

“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.” #depart #QuotsyOct21

Reread this one with my teenager. He was reading it for school. My son said he had never read a book like it before. Definitely a challenging read with the gothic language, but he was always able to figure out what was happening. To celebrate finishing the book he built a Lego Frankenstein.

#TeamSlaughter #Scarathlon What Books Count as Halloween Reads? Is that up to each of us? Or does it have to do with Halloween specifically or have the word Halloween in the title? @Clwojick

I am think of reading Dracula or Frankenstein some.classic horror book.

Scochrane26 I think it has to have something to do with Halloween, like Halloween happens somewhere in the book. 3mo

This is a reproduction of Mary Shelley‘s original handwritten manuscript of Frankenstein with Percy Shelley‘s notes and annotations in the margins. I am speechless. ❤️

This is an author‘s quote, not something that‘s in the book, but I just came across it and love it.
“There is nothing so painful to the human mind, as a great and sudden change.” - Mary Shelley.
Also, this is the version I‘m reading. Old English is hard to follow because there are so many words we don‘t really use anymore, but it‘s kind of adding to the experience!

One of many long overdue✅ classics that I know nothing of the story. I knew Frankenstein only from children‘s cartoons.

Although not my “favourite” read I am very glad I read it (🤫I never did like reading Old English). I may even do a re-read sometime😉

I read Frankenstein with an online class last week and was surprised by both the breadth of its themes and the depths of its tragedy. As an old epistolary monster tale, I expected suspense like Dracula, and this instead was like being beaten against a rocky shore by wave upon wave of misery! I enjoyed the interludes of alpine nature writing and comparing my 1818 edition w/ Shelley‘s edited 1831, in which she seemed to tone down her radical ideas.

beeweird "Wave upon wave of misery" is a great summary ? 4mo
tenar @beeweird I felt like I barely made it out alive! 😅 4mo
marleed I read this for the first time last October. I was surprised how much more I liked this book than any screen adaptation. 4mo
tenar @marleed It‘s so different. More sensitive, romantic, tragic. And I think that difference isn‘t just in the character of the monster, but in Victor! The book version of Mr. Frankenstein may be one of the most emotional characters I‘ve ever read. 4mo
marleed Completely agree! 4mo

I‘ve read four chapters since yesterday, so I‘m obviously enjoying Frankenstein much more than I have in my previous attempts to read it. I have noticed one recurring thing that‘s started to get on my nerves. Mary Shelley seems to have really liked the word “ardour”. I‘m enjoying it for the fact that it‘s not a word I knew before reading this book, but there are so many other words that mean “passion/enthusiasm/focus/hard work”.

I started Frankenstein for the second or third time a few days ago, during a frustratingly sleepless night. I just opened it and realized I never saved my progress. Guess I‘ll have to restart it one more time. I‘m feeling a bit “blah” today, so spending some time on the couch with a classic book, a flannel blanket, pj‘s and a leftover piece of birthday cake sounds just fine 😊

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I hope you feel better soon ❤️ 4mo

These beautiful hardcover (Puffin) editions of two horror classics were delivered yesterday. The covers are more stunning in person. They definitely have earned a front-facing position on my bookshelves.

Frankenstein is my favorite book, so I like to collect versions with interesting covers. I haven‘t read Dracula yet, but I had to add this version with its amazing cover to the cart as well.

#CuriousCovers Day 21: Water

For a cheap Dover thrift edition, I quite like this cover. The painting “Wanderer above the Sea of Fog” by Caspar David Friedrich really reflects the themes of isolation, the sublime, and Romanticism present in Frankenstein. This is the copy I used in my History of Criticism class in college, and I just had a fun time flipping through some of my notes.

Kimberlone Written on the title page: “What is man capable of? What is his place in the cosmos?” 7mo
Gissy I like the cover too!😍 7mo
TH3F4LC0N My favorite book of all time! 😍 No other book has touched me as deeply as this one. Frankenstein is a treasure for me. (And Wanderer Above a Sea of Fog is such a dope painting too! 😃) 7mo

Kimberlone @TH3F4LC0N I have not read it since college, but I agree it is a powerful book and one that is more than deserving of the “classic” status and critical accolades. I need to read it again with a different perspective having matured a lot in the decade since reading it at age 21. 7mo
