Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is about abandonment, isolation and identity. Through out the book Frankenstein is cast out not only by his creator, his father Victor but of society because of his hideous appearance. He is left to drift the world in all it's cruelty on his own. He learns to build a fire, hunt for food even to read and write all on his own. With an abundant of time isolated from any human company he begins to search within himself and ask many questions. The ultimate question and quest in his short lived life is to find out, "Why? Why has my father created me only to forsake me?" I say erase all the perceptions of Frankenstein you have been shown from the different versions of movies you have seen because the Frankenstein in the book is a person with a kaleidoscope of complicated feeling and intelligent thoughts not just a monster as the movies portray. I think this classic is definitely worth reading.
