This book is amazing. It is very well written and has a wonderful plot. Although the story line is incredibly fictitious, it brings up situations that can be compared to modern day issues. One obvious issue is the question on cloning. Is it moral? Is it safe? Is it fair? The biggest question is: Are we playing God? Another issue deals with how one defines beauty. People rejected Frankenstein's creation simply because he was different. Without a thought of this 'monster's' feelings, people ran from him in fright, and even hurt him physically. A third issue is on what people will do and how far they will go to succeed. Frankenstein created a living creature that caused pain for everyone involved. He did this for the sake of success. The man in the beginning almost sacrificed the lives of his crewmembers for success. How far is too far? This awesome book is definitely one that should be at the top of everyone's book list. People from every culture can relate somehow to this tale of love, hate, and the human mind.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
