This story begins with a great concept, but is very poorly executed. One improbable event is followed by even more improbable events. The monster seems to have a homing radar with Frankenstein and his friends. This probably has to do with the fact that this story was originally a short story and only at the urging of her husband did Mary Shelley extended it to a novel. The narration was adequate but the cauterization at times seemed silly.
Despite knowing much of the plot of the story beforehand, it was better than I expected. Lovely prose and keen social commentary. A masterpiece. The narration was excellent.
