it was amazing

I've seen a lot of Frankenstein movies over the years, but never read the book for some reason. Maybe I was put off by the language being too flowery or the storytelling being staid, but in fact none of these were problems at all and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It was a pleasant surprise to find the book focused much more on the monster's viewpoint than in any film version, making the story much more of a tragedy than the horror story it has become considered to be.

Now, onto Dracula...
