Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good read! The English in this novel is excellent and quite poetic. Having watched several film versions of this story I decided to give the original novel a chance. I was not disappointed! The films do not do justice to this great novel (as is usually the case with book-to-film formats). There is so much depth of feeling in Shelley's writing! You will sympathize greatly with the creature; especially if you yourself have suffered the stigma of a deformity or feel left out by the "beautiful people". This novel is especially poignant for today: with society's fixation on youth and beauty. I wish this were required reading in every high school!
