I found so much more in the pages of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" than the pop culture image of the famous monster would have had me predict. The book is more a work of science fiction and philosophy of ethics than a horror story. I was greatly inspired by the adventurous and curious spirits of the two stars of the story -- both ardent scientists. The ingenious language Mary Shelly used to convey the story kept me turning page after page.
That's all I have to say.
