Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
In his quest for knowledge about nature and how to reanimate the non-living, Viktor Frankenstein creates an abomination that will haunt him until his death. What horrors can come from such knowledge and experimentation? Is it the daemon created or the creator who is the real monster?
I knew the story, of course, but had not read it until yesterday. It wasn't as scary as I had hoped but it kept me interested and in suspense many times. The chapters describing the travel was tedious to read, however, and I kept wanting to skim through it to get to the action. Beautifully written, but long stretches lacking in action pertaining to the story made it a difficult read at times.
I am glad I finally read this but not a favorite.
