FRANKENSTEIN by Mary Shelley
The illustration from the 1831 edition is much different than the iconic Karloff Frankenstein’s Monster that we all know and love, yes?
and much, much different than my most vivid Frankensteinian association:
Despite the series originally airing from 1964 – 66, I saw them all in reruns when I was a child and Lily was one of my MAJOR I-wanna-look-like-that-when-I-grow-up style icons and it completely developed my skewed, black sense of humor (one of the perks of being raised by grandparents was that I grew up on old, good TV show reruns and 1940s movies) BUT I DIGRESS.
My dog-eared paperback says that I read this in college, but I remember very little of it. I was supposed to read it in October for the Gothic Challenge, but ran out of time after suffering with Udolpho. I am so pleased that I will be reading it for the Classics Spin! I just finished a book last night, so I will begin Frankenstein immediately.
Many thanks to The Classics Club for this fun, fun game of chance!
