Recommended to Rose☮️ by: My huband
Recommended for: Everyone who loves good literature

Frankenstein is nothing what you think it is. This is a very moving and disturbing story of playing God, ambition, secrets, arrogance and revenge. A tragic tale of rejection from a parent, and judgement over those who do not seem the same as us. How one act upon another can create a consequence of negativity.

I loved this book and highly recommend it to anyone who loves good writing. Mary Shelley's writing is like beautiful poetry although the content itself is horrifying.

This will listed as one of my very favorite books.

Quotes Rose☮️ Liked

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
“Shall each man," cried he, "find a wife for his bosom, and each beast have his mate, and I be alone? I had feelings of affection, and they were requited by detestation and scorn. Man! You may hate, but beware! Your hours will pass in dread and misery, and soon the bolt will fall which must ravish from you your happiness forever. Are you to be happy while I grovel in the intensity of my wretchedness? You can blast my other passions, but revenge remains—revenge, henceforth dearer than light or food! I may die, but first you, my tyrant and tormentor, shall curse the sun that gazes on your misery. Beware, for I am fearless and therefore powerful. I will watch with the wiliness of a snake, that I may sting with its venom. Man, you shall repent of the injuries you inflict.”
Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
