‘Frankenstein’ – Mary Shelley

The main thing I can take from the story is what everyone else says – the significance of science and man’s manipulation.

What I also saw as significant was that Frankenstein created his monster in the pursuit to go where no one had and leave mark – to be of note. However, the manifestation of those ambitions destroyed his world and pursued him endlessly.

So, note to self – don’t be too ambitious.

On another thread, it was one of those stories I’d wanted to read for ages but didn’t really get into.

June 2007, London
