Other than the Frankenstein costumes that are seen during the Halloween season, I didn't know much about the story of Frankenstein. This book is quite an interesting tale of Victor Frankenstein's creation of a demon and then the story of each. Both of them experience extreme highs and lows.

This book is nothing like what I was expecting. The interactions of Frankenstein and his creature and their desires and longings are quite interesting. The demon doesn't seem to me to be such a bad person, but the circumstances seem to drive him to what he is. This book really made me think about life and the things that I freely enjoy.
