3.5 stars. 5 stars for sure for the idea! And I loved all the morality questions it brought up: is your duty to your "child" or to society? Does science ever fully understand the implications from playing God? So I loved Frankenstein's waffling on how to fix what he started. And I really liked the idea that people turned him into a monster by only valuing beauty. So this could be a great book club choice. But the language drove me crazy. In a week you could read me any obscure quote and I wouldn't have a clue who was saying it: man or woman, genius or self-educated "fiend"--who after teaching himself French somehow learned English perfectly too (the language he speaks with the English Captain at the end) as he was being hunted across the continent! They all sounded like the same (often very dramatic!) person. And every time it got really interesting to me, it conveniently skipped ahead without explaining events, and left it feeling more like a travelogue than anything. I think my favorite part was actually reading from the author's own words about how she came to write this story. Loved that! I'm glad I read the book. Now I wish Hollywood would actually read it. Where did Igor, green skin, neck bolts and grunting come from?
