Forget anything you already know about Frankenstein based on the many movie versions, Mary Shelley's novel has no gore but is a brilliant story within a story within a story about the human condition. The creature comes off as the sympathetic character, seeking only companionship. Instead he is abhorred due to his grotesque appearance. Note: Victor Frankenstein is not a doctor in the novel, he is a student who decides to play God and who pays the ultimate price for it. The more you read this, the more you will understand it.
