This is the first time I read the classic Frankenstein. I've seen movies and read variations. They always make the monster seem so relatable. However, after reading the original story, I find the monster to be malevolent and detestable. It wasn't his fault that Victor gave him life and made him hideous. I understand him being angry and lonely and lost. I get that he is looking for someone to understand him and accept him for who he is. And I get that he blames Victor, with good cause. But he kills innocents.
I enjoyed the story and felt awful for Victor. He made a huge mistake and he paid dearly for it. I read this for the Classic Horror square.
Horror fans - this classic should be read by anyone who enjoys the horror genre.
