Movie Review

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. 1818.

Shelley, Mary.  “Frankenstein.”  Penguin Popular Classics; 1994.

Whenever I heard “Frankenstein,” I immediately thought of the movie version of the story.  The only movie I’ve seen, supposedly, based on the book is “Young Frankenstein.”   The film presents some elements of the story in a most engaging fashion, but I am not sure I can say it really did justice to Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein.”   I heard that the book is so much better than a film version.  554 more words
