A dark classic,
This review is from: Frankenstein (Kindle Edition)
Having seen many film versions, I wanted to return to the source material to make my own comparisons. Whilst the language has obviously dated a little, the story of a man reaching for the sun and burning his hand is a timeless one. The pace of the story is slower than I expected and much of the description focuses on the lead character's inner conflicts rather than their actions. A brooding, gothic tale and essential reading for any student of the genre.
