    Mary Shelley's Frankenstein [1994 film] de Kenneth Branagh (Waldstein)
    Waldstein: Nowhere near as bad as many silly reviews would have you believe. Countless changes of the novel, but the spirit, the basic story and the essence of the characters are retained. 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)

A few themes I especially enjoyed this time:

1. Imagination and the Arctic. On the first page, Walton enthuses about the imagined North polar utopia beyond the region of ice: "there snow and frost are banished; and, sailing over a calm sea, we may be wafted to a land surpassing in wonders and in beauty every region hitherto discovered"; "I shall satiate my ardent curiosity with the sight of a part of the world never before visited"; "I try in vain to be persuaded that the pole is the seat of frost and desolation; it ever presents itself to my imagination as the region of beauty and delight." It's the perfect analogue of Victor's besetting ambition, and the first letter ends with Walton's remarks on the joys of sled travel, contrasting abruptly with the succeeding (indelible) image of the Monster driving his sled North. The polar regions are ready-made blank canvases for the imagination — c.f. Arthur Gordon Pym or The Thing, just for a start. Places of disorientation where compasses go haywire and horizons dissolve.

2. The young Shelley's sublimity. She's at pains here to play up Victor's annoying rationality, his anti-Romantic habit of analysis. This is in contrast to Elizabeth who is a pure poet. "While my companion [Elizabeth] contemplated with a serious and satisfied spirit the magnificent appearances of things," Victor tells us, "I delighted in investigating their causes. The world was to me a secret which I desired to divine." Victor's tale is cautionary against the literal and rational. "Darkness had no effect upon my fancy" he reminisces — bad child, not frightened of bugaboos. Partly this is the fault of his permissive parents and liberal upbringing, his parents, "possessed by the very spirit of kindness and indulgence," allow his unnatural childhood proclivities free rein; partly it's just the way he is. If we concentrated more on "simple pleasures", even the history of the New World would be less sad: "If the study to which you apply yourself has a tendency to weaken your affections, and to destroy your taste for those simple pleasures in which no alloy can possibly mix, then that study is certainly unlawful, that is to say, not befitting the human mind. If this rule were always observed; if no man allowed any pursuit whatsoever to interfere with the tranquillity of his domestic affections, Greece had not been enslaved; Cæsar would have spared his country; America would have been discovered more gradually; and the empires of Mexico and Peru had not been destroyed." Wow!

3. The horror. Amidst this novel's thematic smorgasbord, I think maybe we forget how disturbing it is. Shelley turns a couple of immaculate phrases in the service of the Weird — how about "who shall conceive the horrors of my secret toil as I dabbled among the unhallowed damps of the grave or tortured the living animal to animate the lifeless clay?" Bone-chilling! The way the Alpine lightning portends the Monster's reappearence in Victor's life! Or the image of the Monster lifting the curtain of Frankenstein's bed and peering in soon after having been animated! Unforgettable images. At the same time, isn't it the Monster's ugliness that's really the root of all his problems? If he weren't so misshapen and repulsive, he'd presumably be pitied and have no trouble fitting in what with his native intelligence, empathy, fidelity and good-heartedness. It's always his disfigurement that wrecks things for him. So, and not to deny the smorgasbord, isn't this at heart a simple tragedy about narrow-mindedness, petty cruelty, mistrust of the deformed or Other? Shut up, of course it isn't just that!

I had completely forgotten about the Irish interlude. Like Dracula, this novel is front-loaded: the Monster's tale which occupies the central section is kinda slow and soppy. But it works. Easily one of my favorite novels and hard to think of a more influential one, or rather, one with a bigger influence beyond literature. ( )

Ok, since no one else is gonna say it then I guess it falls to me.
First off, don't read this book expecting gore of horror. It's more of a tragedy than a thriller but that's not a bad thing. Most of the stuff you know about Frankenstein and/or the monster from movies and other places is wrong, so keep that in mind.
Number two, it's ok to call the creature "Frankenstein." The creature identifies himself as Victor's son which technically makes the creature a Frankenstein.
And number three, Victor Frankenstein is queer coded beyond all possible dought. The way Victor talks about Henry Clerval (his childhood best friend) is more romantic and loving than when he talks about his actual wife/adopted sister Elizabeth Frankenstein. Make no mistake, there is a reason Victor creates a "tall beautiful man." Victor isn't the only queer character in this book though. The creature himself is representative of the "other" whether this be LGBT+ people, people of color, neurodivergents, and/or anyone else who doesn't fit into societal norms. The creature experiences feelings of abandonment, loss, and rejection that are commonly felt by minorities. This makes the creature relatable, and oddly comforting. Tons of people can relate to how the creature handless stress at a young age and how he reacts. It's crazy seeing this kind of representation in a book written in 1817.
Overall this is a REALLY good book, it drags a bit in the beginning but it is definitely worth it.

Impressed and fascinated by this book. I would give it 5 stars although I found it overwrought at times.

It's an allegorical tale. There's much more here beyond the popular idea of a monster conceived by lightning. The birth of the monster actually only takes up one paragraph.

There's a biblical analogy to be made. Except this Adam has no Eve. A child reckoning with his maker. Reckoning with God for his imperfect form. Tormenting his maker until they both share each other's miseries. ( )

I'm glad I read it. I had asked a friend to recommend a classic fiction piece, and she recommended Frankenstein. I found an original version on e-book in the Kobo store (the version which I can't find in Goodreads, because Amazon), and read it.

The author's approach to narrate the story through the characters in the story (in their conversations and letters) was quite interesting. And I never knew that "Frankenstein" was the name of the creator, not the being which was created. ( )

I am seriously considering making a shelf for 'characters-I-wish-I-could-kill'

Soooo Frankenstein is such a jerk! This book would've gotten 1 star if there weren't those couple of chapters from the creatures perspective. The beginning doesn't add anything to the story and the letters are pretty pointless. Vic leads an ideal life whoop-de-do, BORING. Then he see lightning strike a tree *gasp* like THAT'S never happened before... So Vic now know how to create life! But reanimating a dead body, that's just TOO simple isn't it? Let's take hundreds of different body parts and just put them together into one huge 8 foot tall person, isn't that just the best idea you've ever heard? And hey, how about the second it opens it's eyes we just leave this 8 foot baby on it's own and never come back? Cause THAT makes total sense and is definitely responsible of you. When you eventually run into it and it requests a companion at the cost of letting all if your friends and family live, let's just say 'F U MAN I don't need to listen to you' and just let him kill your little brother, let Justine die for being convicted of your brother's murder, let Elizabeth die on your wedding night, let him strangle your BFF, AND let your father die. All of Vic's misery is no where NEAR the misery that the creature feels, and all of Vic's misery was his own fault! Man, I just wanted Victor to die throughout the whole book. It really makes you pity the poor monster. He was abandoned by society and forced to not be his benevolent, true self. ( )

“ 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.
