Welcome to Blogtober Day 9, Today’s post is yet another book review because come on now we can never have too many books right!!
Again today is a classic and a family favourite that I think suits this time of year amazingly!
All photo credits go to my favourite Halloween loving person ever!!! If you love reading about travel you will love her Blog!
If you haven’t read Frankenstein you are likely to have seen a film or even a musical based on this classic. It is one that no matter your age you are likely to know a lot or a little about.
“It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils. With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, collected the instruments of life around me that I might infuse a spark of being into the lifeless thing that lay at my feet. It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs.”
And with that Frankenstein’s monster was ALIVEEEEEEE (yes, yes I did have to.) One of the most iconic gothic novels was born and I cannot stress this enough you do end up falling just a little bit in love with the characters. Not only getting Victor Frankenstein’s perspective but also being able to immerse ourself in the perspective of the monster. (although I hate to call him that.)
It is not only a gothic novel but it is also a romantic novel something that should not really be working in this story but years later we are still fixated on the writings of an 18-year-old girl writing to prove that her skills and imagination is just as good as anyone else!
Have you read Frankenstein what did you think?
