I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to be challenged as well as entertained. Shelley manages to pull off a spooky horror story while being able to address several controversial issues of her time period. These issues include "When does science cross the line?" and "Who is the real villain in the novel?".
Although it is a quite lengthy book, Frankenstein has a great flow that makes this classic piece of literature not painful for the reader at all. Perfect for Halloween time, Frankenstein is the perfect spooky story that will tug at your heartstrings too.
