Look what arrived when we were away on holiday! @Cathythoughts

The card is gorgeous, and it‘s a lovely edition of Frankenstein (which, can you believe, is one of the classics that I‘ve never read?!)

And as for the gin and tonic chocolate… 😋- that won‘t last long for sure!

Thanks so much for your thoughtful gifts! 😘

marleed I read Frankenstein last year and loved it. The book and ordinal story is much better than any adaption I‘ve seen over the years. 7d
Cathythoughts Oh good, I‘m glad it‘d there. A bit late with the card … Enjoy Helen 😘 7d
LeahBergen Lovely! 7d

Thank you for this #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 😁

1️⃣ Tagged! Although between recovering from surgery and preparing for a major audit at work next month, I haven‘t had much reading time lately, so it‘s the ONLY book I‘ve been reading this month! 😳 Fortunately I‘ve been enjoying it.

2️⃣ It‘s so different than I expected. Hollywood often portrays the monster as a mindless brute, but Shelly‘s original creation is more intelligent and dangerous! 😱

TheSpineView You're welcome! Thanks for playing 4w

#OnThisDay in 1797 the mother of science fiction, Mary Shelley, was born Mary Godwin in London, England. After running away from home at the age of 16 with the married Percy Shelley, she famously penned Frankenstein at 18 following a challenge from Lord Byron. Published anonymously in 1818, Mary wasn't credited as the author until 1823, and never received royalties for her most famous work. #HistoryGetsLIT

“I perceived in the gloom a figure which stole from behind a clump of trees near me; I stood fixed, gazing intently: I could not be mistaken. A flash of lightning illuminated the object, and discovered its shape plainly to me; its gigantic stature, and the deformity of its aspect, more hideous than belongs to humanity, instantly informed me that it was the wretch, the filthy dæmon, to whom I had given life.”

Nought may endure but mutability

blurb

Frankenstein so caught public imagination that it's never been out of print. It has gone through countless editions, become a staple of nineteenth-century horror narratives and more recently has enjoyed a deep relationship with audiences of film and TV, players of computer games and readers of fan fiction.

I‘m a sucker for classics and this book was no exception. The story line was captivating and I loved the characters, especially Victor and Clerval. Clerval was such a loving friend, he didn‘t deserve what happened to him! I also felt bad for Victor, he just wanted to enjoy life and the wonders of science! Overall, the novel was amazing and I loved that it was written through letters. The story within a story was genius.

Le premier sens est l'odorat, puisque je lis toujours accompagnée de l'arôme d'une tasse de café matinale. Ensuite, je lis principalement sur mon balcon qui face face à des travaux de réfection. Ma vue erre donc souvent sur l'immeuble en face, surtout lorsque le volume tonitruant de la radio m'extirpe des pages de Frankenstein. Finalement, la lecture du roman est aussi associée à l‘ouïe; une cacophonie est toujours en toile de fond.

Mehso-so

Finished! A story within a story with in a story. Definitely not at all what I was expecting.

To be honest, I loved the concept and the depth of the story but found myself either confused or missing details over and over. Im not even sure what happened at the end... 😪😬

I listened to it on audiobook but this classic deserves to be held physically and cherished. I'll have to read it again!

Solid 3.5 stars because I missed a lot of detail.

Ruthiella I think the ending was a little open ended-the monster sails off on a ice floe - maybe he survives? Room for a sequel...probably someone has already written it! 4mo
LoverOfLearning @Ruthiella yeah it was so so hard to focus on the audiobook at times. I had to relisten to the ending like 3 times and eventually I gave up. I more or less the gist of it. HA And yeah I'm sure someone has! 4mo

My all-time favorite anti-hero (and I LOVE a morally conflicted protagonist) is the Creature in Mary Shelley‘s Frankenstein. This is one of my favorite novels to teach and the Creature is the most tragic of tragic heroes! His deeply flawed character is so complex and has so much to teach us….if only we‘d listen.

“Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I should first break through, and pour a torrent of light into our dark world. A new species would bless me as its creator and source; many happy and excellent natures would owe their being to me. No father could claim the gratitude of his child so completely as I should deserve theirs.”

YIKES! I knew going into this that Dr. Frankenstein had a God complex, but I didn‘t realize to what extent! 😱

I loved this book — again. The movies always portray the monster as clumsy and slow, but, in the book, he‘s fast and limber. A lot of different themes are dealt with — the impact of isolation on social creatures, the responsibility of a creator to not only their creation but to the rest of humanity, and ethics in science are just a few. It‘s also beautifully written. I started Mercy Falls when I finished Frankenstein. #audiowalk

Somebody on Litsy mentioned Frankenstein, and it‘s been years since I read it, so I made it my new walking book. The animals were out in full force in the park today. I think that‘s a beaver with the bird; it‘s the first time I‘ve seen a live one there — I‘ve seen 2 or 3 dead ones. #audiowalk

Been listening to this audiobook on YouTube! Definitely good quality and I love the voice actors different voices for each character.

So far this is a fascinating story!! I am so enthralled with how Frankenstein is viewing the world. Although, I am missing a lot of the details regarding some of the other side stories. This book deserves a physical reread if I ever get around to it.

Can't wait to finish this one! Predicting a 4 star read.

“My reign is not yet over- you live, and my power is complete”
I‘ve only ever seen the Frankenstein movie so I was very pleasantly surprised and shocked that the original monster does in fact speak. I have many many thoughts on this book and Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. I know she‘s credited with one of the first science fiction novels ever but I think this book is so much more complex than she‘s given credit for.
9/10

He sprang from the cabin window as he said this, upon the ice raft which lay close to the vessel. He was soon borne away by the waves and lost in darkness and distance.

"When I looked around I saw and heard of none like me. Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?"

Wow. I thought I knew what this book was about but I never knew there was this much depth to it. I'm fascinated by this story and Frankensteins view of man's desires, wants, fears, and laws. And ultimately the understanding of himself.

A wonderful experience so far.

Liatrek I felt the same when I first read it. I wish they would do a more faithful movie adaption of the source material. 6mo
LoverOfLearning @Liatrek ohh yeah that's fair! I haven't thought about that. Would definitely be a game changer if they stayed with the original plot line. 6mo

February was Frankenstein Month!

I read the book, watched a couple old related movies, you know … Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Young Frankenstein … read an annotated version, listened to the audiobook, watched Abbot & Costello Meet Frankenstein & finally I read this manga by Junji Ito.

I loved Dean Koontz‘s Frankenstein series & some of the newer movies!

The book is a little dry but the narrator helped bring it to life.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
