Frankenstein


Now how is that for a supporting photo?! I found this book cover on Amazon and thought it was perfect for my little review of the book we Book Blogging Babes read together this month. This was a classic I had never read and probably wouldn't have read on my own--not a science fiction person. But I didn't realize it would have so many elements of other classics I enjoy like the Bronte and Austen books. That same sort of language and style of storytelling I thought. Having said that I have to confess as much as I love Austen, Bronte and E.M. Forster I have to be in just the right mood for them. A sit down and slowly concentrate on this book mood. Lucky for me I was in that sort of mood and really enjoyed it. It was so much more complex and really less creepy than I expected. So put all your Herman Munster type notions aside and read it next October in anticipation of Halloween. I am going to do it again I think!

I am about 1/2 way through. I figured election night was a great night to work on reading it. The results were scarier than the story has been for me.

I don't know, it looks a little creepy to me. :) How are you doing these days?? Any news with the house? Are you with your mom and dad?

I'm so happy you like this! I have been making an effort to read more classics lately and this is one of my favorites. I just finished Huckleberry Finn and that was okay... sad to think of how things used to be but I think we proved things to be a bit better on Tuesday!
I hope you all are nice and settled in your temp. home!

I haven't read it since I was a kid, sounds like a good one to revisit!
