No stars That s right Zero zip nadaIt s been almost 30 years since I ve detested a book this much I didn t think anything could be worse then Kafka s The Metamorphosis Seems I m never too old to be wrong This time I don t have the excuse that I was forced to read this for high school lit class Oh no this time I read this of my own volition and for fun Yeah fun Kinda like sticking bamboo shoots between my fingernails type of fun Watching paint dry fun Going to an Air Supply concert funOK to be fair I need to tell you what I liked about thisWell Mary Shelley was a teen when she wrote this Color me impressed At 19 I was just looking for my next college boyfriend not penning the great English classic Kudos to Mary for thatOtherwise I can t think of anything to admire in this book apart from the fact that it s the only book in my reading history where I actually noted EVERY SINGLE PAGE NUMBER and mentally counted down the time I d be finishedWhy did I persist you may ask Well at the point where the pain became mind numbing I decided to channel my inner John McCain and just survive the torture Figured it would make me a better stronger reader Might even make me enjoy a re read of Breaking Dawnwell no it wouldn t but you get the idea Frankenstein is a classic alright A classic melodrama Complete with a wimpy vaporish trembling prima donna main character and a pseudo monster whose only sin is being uglier then Bernie Madoff in cell block D After the upteenth tremblejerkgaspfaintstart from our mad scientist Victor Frankenstein I could only sign in relief that he wasn t a Rabbi about to perform a bris circumcism oy veyWere we supposed to be outraged at the monster s killing spree By the books end I was merely miffed that the creature murdered the wrong Frankenstein sibling He would have saved himself a good deal of traveling and saved me a good deal of suffering had he snuffed out his maker before he could high tail it out of the birthing roomI m sure that the fans of this book will say that I didn t understand the deeper symbolic nuances of this book and I m sure that they are right At this point in my life all I know is what I like and don t like in a book and as far as I m concerned this book is unadulterated mind numbing crap But that s just me Your mileage will vary as I sincerely hope it does As for my own mileage it can best be compared to driving a Ford Pinto in the Indy 500EDITDue to the efforts of a few Kool ade drinking trolls who have gotten their big girlbig boy panties in a wad over an almost 200 year old book and can t comment nicely on my review I am suspending all future commentsDon t like it Blame the navel grazing trolls for not accepting the concept of a PERSONAL OPINION

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley ↠ 0 Review Free download ô Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out and then on the working of some powerful engine show signs of life and stir with an uneasy half vital motion A summer evening's ghost stories lonely insomnia in a moonlit Alpine. SoI finished itWarningIf you are a fan of classic literature andor are utterly devoid of a sense of humor this review may not be for youAlsoYes I realize that I m a moron with zero literary credibility So stop reading right now if the sound of an idiot whistling out of their asshole bothers you too terribly Sure you can comment below and tell me how stupid I am but it probably won t make me a better person Or will it I ve always wondered what the real Frankenstein story was likeand now I knowSadly sometimes the fantasy is better than the realityAnd the reality is this book is a big steaming pile of pooIt s an old timey horror story rightNot so muchI mean I wasn t expecting it to actually be scary but I thought it might be slightly creepy Unfortunately the only horror in the story centered around me having to keep turning the pagesUnless Beware mortal You will DIE of boredom Oooga Booga BoogaYep Truly frighteningIt starts like thisAn upper crust guy sails off to the Arctic to make discoveries and to pass the time he writes to his sister Supposedly he s been sailing around on whaling ships for several years And he s been proven an invaluable resource by other captains So I m assuming he s a pretty crusty ol sailor at this point Pay attention because this is where Shelly proves that she knows nothing about menSo this guy goes on and on in these letters to his sister about how he wishes on every star that he could find a BFF at sea After a few too many letters they pull a half frozen Frankensicle out of the water Aaaaand here s what our salty sea dog has to say about the waterlogged mad scientist Blah blah blahhis full toned voice swells in my ears his lustrous eyes dwell on me with all their melancholy sweetnessblah blah blah Lustrous eyes No straight sailor ever in the history of the world EVER referred to another dude s eyes as lustrous Ever And I know what you re thinking Well Anne maybe this character was gay Didn t think about that didja Actually yes Yes I did The only problem with that theory is that NONE of the male characters in this book sounded remotely maleLadies do you remember that time in your life probably around middle or high school when you thought that guys actually had the same sort of thought waves running through their heads that we do You know before you realized that the really don t care aboutwell all of the things that we do You thought that while they were laughing at the booger their idiot friend just flicked across the room something deeper was stirring in their mind It just had to beI m not sure when it happens but at some point every woman finally realizes the fairly obvious truthMen aren t womenThat booger was the funniest thing ever and nothing was stirring around in them other than maybe some gasAnd that s okFart lighting and long distance loogie hawking contests aside they can pretty darn cool But this author was too young to realize thatMy personal opinion is that Mary was probably fairly sheltered when it came to real men She was a teenage girl apparently running around with a bunch of artsy fartsy dudes Much like today I would imagine these junior emos were probably blowing poetic smoke up her young ass in the high hopes of getting into her pantsAlthough it s possible I m totally misreading the situationAnyway Frank tells his story and Sea Dog writes it all down for his sisterIn excruciating detailRivers flowers rocks mountain topsagonizingly cataloged And the weather God forbid a breeze blows through the story without at least a paragraph devoted to the way it felt on his skin or affected his moodAnd speaking of Frankenstein s moodI don t think I ve ever had the pleasure of reading about a character this spineless before What a pussy He didn t talk so much as he whinedAnd the swooningHe was like one of those freaking Fainting GoatsI can t even count how many times he blacked out and fell over Of course then he would get feverish and need a period of convalescence to recoverAgain every episode was recounted with incredible attention to detailI m thrilled that I never had to miss a moment of his sweaty brow getting daubed with water Randomly Inserted Fun Fact The monster uoted Milton in Paradise Lost Shockingly I only know this because it was in the appendix and not because I have any real life experience with reading that one Was this the most painfully unnecessary book I ve read this yearYesIs there a deeper moral to this storyYesSome would say that the monster is a product of a society that refuses to accept someone who is different Or maybe that Victor Frankenstein was the real monster for not realizing that he had a duty to parent and care for his creation Perhaps it is meant to point out our obsession with perfection and our willingness to disregard people who don t meet the standards of beauty as non humanSome might say any of those things I however learned a far different lesson from FrankensteinAnd it s thisTrust no oneNot even someone who just an example has been your Best Friend for decades Let s read a classic Anne It ll be fun Anne We can call each other with updates Anne It ll be just like a book club Anne Tee heeLiar liar Pants on fireI read this whole God awful book and you uit after 10 pages I m telling your momAnywayHere s the uote that sums up my experience with Frankenstein Blah blah blahin all the misery I imagined and dreaded I did not conceive the hundredth part of the anguish I was destined to endure
