Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus

In the frozen wastes north of Russia, a lone seaward vessel seeks the elusive Northwest Passage. Suddenly they sight a dog sled with a gargantuan figure in the shape of a man, driving the dogs northward to sure oblivion. The following day, they find another sled. This sled is filled with a European near death, and when asked what he is chasing, he simply replies, "to seek one who fled from me."

    Story
    "The real story"

    The story was good though Dr. Frankenstein seriously got on my nerves with all of his whining; I mean good grief.

    But it was an interesting read, I picked it up when my Mom told me she had read it and that Frankenstein wasn't the "monster" WHAT?!?!?! My whole life I had been lied to by cartoons that stated the "monster's" name was Frankenstein. So I had to read the book to find out what else I had been told falsely concerning this story.

    At the end though the "monster" was bad, to me Dr. Frankenstein was so much worse.

    I would have given it more stars but it was a little slow for me.
