REVIEW – Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

“Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.”

Oh man. Victor is the WORST. He’s melodramatic. He’s a total jerk. He doesn’t take any responsibility whatsoever for what he’s done.

“…but am I not alone, miserably alone?”

And the monster? It’s hard not to feel bad for him (despite the…murders…) He just wants love, acceptance and companionship.

“Accursed creator! Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust?”

This is a classic for a reason. It’s not spooky, or terrifying, but it is pretty heartbreaking. Victor’s inability to care for his creation, and his choice to not warn his friends and family that they might be in danger, makes him 110% liable for every terrible thing that happens in this book.
