Frankenstein by Mary Shelley Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Mary Shelley was just 18 when she had a nightmare vision: “I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life.”

Despite her lack of writing experience, Shelley converted her dream into what is often referred to as the world’s first horror novel, a timeless tale of science gone bad. Frankenstein follows the story of Swiss scientist Victor Frankenstein, who manages to animate a hulking creature referred to as a “monster,” “wretch,” or “fiend.” Shelley’s 1818 classic has become one of the most frequently taught works of fiction, a cultural touchstone for conversations about the dark side of innovation. (Made-up words like Frankenscience andFrankenfood have become shorthand for the products of technological tampering.) More than 200 years after it was published, this novel remains a thought-provoking read that explores timely themes like creators’ responsibilities for the unintended consequences of their inventions.

Good if you like philosophical ideas that are dragged out into an entire mind numbing novelIf you like reading for 200+ pages about characters that all share the same, old fashioned English voice and that constantly feel the need to describe the majestic mountains of Jura for the fifteenth time in the book, despite being described only two chapters ago, this book is for you. Save yourself from this misery, for it is not the monster or Victor Frankenstein that is horrifying in this book; it is how much you'll want both of them to get shot in the head so that the book can end and you can continue your life again..Score: 2/5

When science goes bad...I’ve not read the original version of this book, only adaptations by other authors. But, considering that in these adaptations, most of which were written with kids in mind, are usually pretty faithful to the source material, meaning that they’re simply supposed to tell the story the way it was originally written while doing it in a way that modern readers can understand, I can guarantee you that I got the gist of the story just as much as I would have if I had read an original publication that featured Mary Shelley’s story, word for word. Frankenstein is a wonderful story, horrifying, sad, romantic, and thought-provoking! If any book could make scientists think twice about playing God, this fiendish and heartbreaking horror classic would have to be the one! For all of the reviewers who claim that no film version compares, I disagree. Even though I love the original 1932 horror classic that made Boris Karloff a household name in horror, it’s absolutely true that it’s not faithful to the book, regardless of the fact that it contains the same moral. However, I grew up in the 90s, and when I saw the movie Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein advertised, I was excited because it looked like a film version that would be very faithful to Shelley’s classic story. And when I watched it, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was! With the exception of the film’s chilling climax, this powerful, literate shocker came the closest to the source material of any movie I’ve ever seen! If you’re a fan of sci-fi horror who enjoys classic literature, read this book! If you’re looking for a faithful film adaptation that is truly a great movie, see Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein! Both are amazing!.Score: 5/5

Good idea, poorly executedI am a high schooler who does like literature - I'm in the middle of Little Dorrit and Crime & Punishment - but I don't recommend. The first half of the book is just Victor Frankenstein's weird life story and some guy trying to find the North Pole. The characters are flat and the relationships are one-dimensional. Victor Frankenstein and his monster are conceited and self-piteous. The characters make many unrealistic decisions. I do love the idea of a man relating to his creation and whether the monster is human or not, but these aren't really touched on beyond a "woe is me". Also, there are a lot of really boring descriptions of Victor's depression and guilt and the Swiss countryside. To be fair, Mary Shelly was 19 when she wrote it, I believe. If you have to read a "literature" book for school, see if you can get The Poisonwood Bible, If on a Winter's Night a Traveler, or Great Expectations..Score: 2/5

I’m glad to say that all my expectations were subverted.

Finally checked this off Bucket ListThere is no Igor in the original story. Good to finally read the book that started it all. Frankenstein is so iconic but how much is the original story and how much is Hollywood? I found the book a fast read - less than a day because each chapter was no more than about 10 pages in my paper version, and the way the story was told I kept wanting to read more to find out what would happen next. Hollywood does a disservice to the story in film versions that paint the creature as a one dimensional monster. I liked that there is a philosophical and moral aspect to both the creature and Frankenstein the creator. However, I did find the Frankenstein character implausible in his reaction to own creation. He labours over his creation for months and then when the creature comes to life he is horrified. How can he be so oblivious to the danger of letting his creation walk out into the world unprepared for anything. Why would he create something so ugly and terrifying? The creature kills his brother, Justine (indirectly), his friend and then his wife, but each time he does not foresee the danger and is unprepared to stop it. Don’t get me wrong, I obviously enjoyed reading this literary classic but I just found it unbelievable that someone smart enough to bring the creature to life would then behave in ways that were not very smart to bring such tragedies to himself and the ones he loved..Score: 3/5

Surprisingly poignantI spent so long hating this book it came as quite a surprise to me that I actually rather enjoyed it. It's a difficult read with the gratuitous use of description, particularly of nature, but the poignancy of the end makes up for it. For all their faults and actions, Shelley makes it difficult not to sympathise with both Creator and Creature in the closing pages of the novel, and to see the terrible waste of life in both that of the victims of their actions and the two 'monsters' themselves. It is easy to see why this novel is regarded as a classic of English literature. Well worth a read, if you can spare the time..Score: 5/5

DisappointingAfter having read snippets of the novel in class throughout my school and college years I finally decided to give this classic a read and have to say it was extremely disappointing. Shelley's use of language has opened up my vocabulary and gained me some literary knowledge that I lacked in previously, but the actual story itself is beyond boring. It's 700 pages of irrelevant descriptions of landscapes, which were not detailed enough that I could build up an accurate image of what was being described and the rest is merely depressed ramblings of a mad man. The monster being portrayed as the villain is very simplistic and unfair, as I believe Viktor to be the true monster in this story. His own self loathing and inability to make a change makes his character unbearable and hard to sympathise with and he consistently fails to take responsibility for his own actions, therefore projecting his own flaws onto his creation. I was proud to have reached the end, but this novel is definitely one I wouldn't re-read in the future as I found it to be lacking in suspense and a majority of the time I found myself falling asleep whilst reading as it was just that dull..Score: 2/5

Not a good bookOverall I was disappointed with this book. The language in the prose is of it's time but the dialogue is over flowery and has neither realism nor the wit and insight of Shakespearean characters. In fact the only speech that rang true was Frankenstein's attempt to rouse courage in his shipmates. The sentiment of this I like but it's purpose in the novel I think misguided. The comparison between the expected physical torture and the torture of the soul is good but is continual and ends up filling most of the book. Torture is just one of far too many words that are over used. The descriptions of journeys and landscapes are long and not too descriptive not adding much to the tale at all. The book would have been better set solely in a small town or village. This would stop the plot from relying on unbelievable coincidences just to satisfy the allegory. This too is basic and can be summarised by the transformation of the monster from kind and benevolent to sinister ogre. This is achieved by the first murder and his hinted rape, leaving the rest of his labours, and indeed the novel to be unnecessary. The main problem I have though is the characterisation of the monster as a murderer and tormentor which is simplistic at best. In my experience these are jealous passions more suited to man and beast than the so-called monsters who walk this earth. Indeed many creatures blessed with the considerable talents of the "daemon" are gentle and beautiful beings though their skin is yellowed by creation or weariness but not disformity. On the subject of murder it is interesting and apt that even the fiend that Shelley imagines will not slaughter lamb for food. The desire for a mate humanises the monster but his willingness to describe her as hideous and disfigured before even laying eyes on her discredits Shelley's character as he is seemingly endowed with great intelligence and depth. The description of misery, in man and monster, though is superb. It is vivid and varied and invokes emotions that all men have felt but few could succinctly put into words. Overall I give the book 2 stars out of 5 for it's eloquent and evocative depiction of woe, particularly in the monster. I feel it lacks in all other quarters however, particularly realism..Score: 2/5

A classic novel with a very modern themeAlthough I feel I know this story well as it has been retold so many times in film and tv drama I had never read the book until now. The tale is told in the form of letters and in this way reminds me of another gothic horror story Dracula. Both stories are often altered in the retelling and so it is quite a surprise to see how the original differs from its many screen incarnations. Both stories are moral tales. Dracula is evil personified but Frankenstein’s creature was not created evil but becomes so through his cruel treatment at the hands of others. For me this is the sadder story of the two as it is filled with so much regret. Frankenstein regrets creating his monster and the horrors it wreaks on his family and friends but the monster is full of regret too; regret that he was ever created to live such a sad and lonely life when all he really wanted was acceptance. Shelley is a most poetic writer and had clearly traveled extensively herself as she paints vivid pictures of many far and distant lands. The over-riding message seems to be don’t try to play God or you will regret it. This seems to reflects Victorian society’s fear of how science may tempt us to lose our humanity and in this way it remains relevant. As Jeff Goldblum’s character Ian Malcolm, in Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park says, “You were so busy wondering if you could do it that you didn’t consider whether you should...”.Score: 5/5

These themes mix with each other to form what has been an enjoyable read. I would highly recommend this book..Score: 5/5
