Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Sometimes I really wonder why some books become classics. Frankenstein is supposed to be horror. I don’t deal well with scary things. I don’t watch horror movies because the one I watched years ago scared me way too much. I don’t read horror books because I get too scared. I barely can handle super suspenseful books without getting terrified. Reading this one I just felt… bored. So bored. It was almost completely very long-winded exposition. There was nothing remotely suspenseful about it. Nothing horrifying. Oh, Frankenstein’s Monster strangled some people and threatened Frankenstein a bit, sure. But that’s really it. He even felt guilty about it in the end. I am just not a fan and can’t say I recommend it to anyone.
