An enjoyable horror story!!! The mystery is well kept and the gaps that are left to the imagination only make it more interesting... a must read for horror fans!
Dont read this book if you're not aiming for OUT OF THIS WORLD CRAZY.
I can't make up my mind as to whether i like it or not... But one thing, it does make an impression!!
Sci-fi fans are most likely to enjoy it.
The story is good and it COULD be a great work.. The fact that many chapters were cut off from the original probably helped ruining the piece, but i also think that Stoker's writing is not at its best here. The reader feels rushed up between facts and there is no time to enjoy the mystery, it's so obvious you don't get scared.
Could be great, but it's just.. ok.
I think it's quite an awesome work. The gaps on how the monster got on to follow Frankenstein, on how he created life and the misunderstanding on what would happen on his wedding night are not as important as the reflexion Mary Shelley creates on the human being. The relationship between creature and creator makes us think about man's relation to God, and the nature of man (is it good, or is it evil?)
I think the story in itself is not the most important thing, but the ideas behind the monster's cottage tale and so many more interesting facts make us think on human life, and how we perceive the world. I think it's a brilliant work.
