Read from October 01 to 23, 2011 — I own a copy, read count: 2

I adore Frankenstein as a book that changed the way we see the world in the past and even now. The ethics are so different then most of us would view. The idea of creating a being just to act like God is, in the human mind, a horrific idea and yet despite the lack of ethics or moral the good Doctor Frankenstein must live with his decisions and can never go back and will always be running from his monster.
I feel that while it's been well over a century since the book was released it still plays a huge impact in modern society as we take steps to further cloning and stem cell research. What are the consequences of our actions and can we face them?
