"Strangest tale ever imagined formed,"

The story is about Frankenstein being ambitious thus creating a monster which will be a nightmare to his own life.

The monster created, being abandoned, miserable, sad, lonely and isolated felt the need to revenge to his own creator by killing thosw who are deareast to Frankenstein.

Shelley's Frankenstein is so weird and strange that I can't stop reading it. It is well narrated and I think there's no irrelevant paragraphs.

This book also shows how cruel mankind is, that no matter how good and kind they are, they would still judge creatures by their physical appearances.
