Actually improved. The movie's more Gothic and more horror, for one (or two) thing(s). More dramatic and more tightly plotted, too. Excellent cast and production design.… (més)

Of course this novel is an amazing accomplishment for such a young writer, and it has withstood the test of time. But I now understand why the movie versions are so different from the novel. The audience would be asleep within half an hour if this version were followed. It takes a looong time for the story to develop.

I wanted to slap Victor Frankenstein around for being such an emotional wuss. He swoons not for a few minutes but for months more than once. God what a pansy! I'm not sure what Elizabeth sees in him. And the creature was barely sympathetic enough for me to feel sorry for him, and all sympathy was gone after William was killed. So I didn't like the characters, but I still recognize the literary merit Frankenstein deserves. ( )

Just as with Dracula most of us are familiar with the story of Frankenstein and his creation, even if popular culture often refers to the monster by that name. It probably suffers a little because so many of us think we know the story, why should we read something that we already know about. But it is worth a read.

Framed by the letters of an Arctic explorer to his sister, the main body of the novel is made up of Frankenstein relating his past to Capt. Walton. Frankenstein urges Walton to listen to him, and to learn from his mistakes, to not let his passion take over his life. It may be the end of him, as Frankenstein’s has destroyed his. He tells of his childhood in Geneva, of growing up a happy child, of heading off to college in Germany where his ambition first surfaces. He believes he knows how to create life. And so, of course, he sets his mind to doing just that, only for this passion and enthusiasm to ruin his life.

I had read Frankenstein as a teenager, but I’ll admit to remembering very little of it, and reading it this time around I just couldn’t get over how selfish the good doctor is.

I know, it is a first person story, so obviously we are going to get his point of view, his thoughts and emotions. But he never even tries to put anyone else first. At more than one point in the story he mentions that another character is sad, or tormented, but each time he follows up by saying that if only this character knew how bad he himself were feeling they would be put to shame. No one could possibly *feel* as much as Frankenstein.

And never once does he take responsibility for his own actions. He created the “monster” and promptly abandons him, yet, while he acknowledges guilt (although that may just be him putting himself at the centre of the entire world) he later says that he is blameless. Blameless!

Despite Frankenstein’s flaws this is a great read. Or possibly because of his annoyances, they certainly make him more of a character, its just a pity that there is no one else in the novel to balance him out. Yes, the monster gets to tell his tale, and you can’t help but pity him, despite his actions, but he isn’t enough to truly balance out Viktor’s influence. ( )

I previously read the final 1831 edition of "Frankenstein" and wasn't all that impressed. I'm glad I've now finally read the 1818 version because it's far superior. It feels much more raw and powerful and, most importantly, not sanitized. In her revisions to the text in 1831 Shelley intentionally cleaned up certain aspects that might make her family look disreputable and also softened the character of Frankenstein himself. The original Victor possesses free will and the capability of making moral choices, even though he chooses not to make them. In the revision he is merely a victim of fate, unable to control his own destiny. This makes for a much less interesting story. If you can only read one text of this classic make it this one, penned by Mary Shelley as she originally intended in 1818. You won't be disappointed. ( )

Read for my OU course.

This is really not my thing. Such drama! Such self-involvement! Such endless going over the same emotional ground. ( )

Not what I expected. The modern depictions do not do justice to the original "monster." ( )

To Mrs Saville, England. St. Petersburgh, Dec. 11th, 17—. You will rejoice to hear that no disaster has accompanied the commencement of an enterprise which you have regarded with such evil forebodings.
You will rejoice to hear that no disaster has accompanied

The event on which this fiction is founded has been supposed, by Dr. Darwin, and some of the physiological writers of Germany, as not of impossible occurrence. - preface by P.B. Shelley
Mary Shelley: Though her life was fraught with personal tragedy, Mary Shelley was destined for literary greatness. (Barnes and Noble Edition)

Citacions

“ I had admired the perfect form of my cottagers—their grace, beauty, and delicate complexions: but how was I terrified when I viewed myself in a transparent pool . . . and when I was convinced that I was in reality the monster that I am I was filled with the bitterest sensations of despondence and mortification.”
"I will be with you on your wedding night!"
It was the wretch, the filthy daemon to whom I had given life!
"I have lately been so engaged in one occupation that I have not allowed myself sufficient rest. But I hope that all those employments are now at an end, and that I am at length free."
I felt the bitterness of disappointment; dreams that had been my food and pleasant rest for so long a space were now become a hell to me.
