I found myself surprised and delighted that I had such sympathy for Frankenstein's "monster". Despite flaws in storytelling, and perhaps writing, this book is great for its exploration of the place of humans in the heavenly order. Man vs. Monster. Man as God. Nurture v. Nature. The inherent good and evil in all of us. And what it is that tips the scale.
