Frankenstein by Mary Shelly – Review

This story follows our main protagonist, Victor Frankenstein. He’s fascinated by science and decides to apply his knowledge in the creation of life. Creating the incredibly famous Frankenstein’s monster, later regretting his decision and spending a small amount of the story running away from him/it.


Overall I enjoyed this book, I really fancied Mary Shelly’s writing style and I also liked the mix between letter as well as actual prose. The plot was very well developed and I think she really made clear what her point was. As I see it, she used this book to examine human nature as well as trying to define what human life actually is along with trying to show us we need to evaluate our own actions and not put how we act on other people.

All in all, I give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars just because I’m not really into horror.
I deftly recommend you to read it, you know I love the classics.
