Xalaila's book diary

I mostly post reviews of the books I'm reading lately.

Frankenstein (Penguin Classics)

Frankenstein - Mary Shelley, Maurice Hindle I did NOT expect this to be so sad. I was expecting more horror, but as my roommate put it, it's existential horror. And I don't know if Mary Shelley meant it that way (I need to read up on her letters), but the question I get is: who is the real monster? Or perhaps our association of Frankenstein and monster is right, only from the opposite side of the coin.
