Victor Frankenstein a student of science is obsessed with what creates life and wanting to give life to something without life. Victor steals human body parts and assembles them to create a human being, but when he’s able to bring it to life, he is horrified by what he has created. Set free to be alone Frankenstein’s creature turns evil and starts his revenge on his creator.
I like this book because given the time that it was written it was something that was not really thought of, bringing something like that to life and from multiple different bodies. I wanted to read this book when I was younger in elementary school but I was allowed to read until I was in High School. It shows that if we could reanimate something after that long amount of time, that there can be consequences of doing so. It’s also an entrancing story that has kept readers captivated for hundreds of years.
