Somehow I managed to go without reading Frankenstein in its entirety until college - although I was supposed to read it in high school like so many other books I never read. I finally did plow through it for my Monsters class last year. I actually ended up loving it, even though I seem to have an aversion to "classics." I doubt I need to go into the plot in any detail. Man creates monster from dead people; monster lives; man freaks out and monster escapes into the wilderness; monster kills people; man tracks monster to the north pole. You get the idea. Anyway, it's good.
