You already know this is the most original, and one of the best, and best-written horror stories in literature. You may or may not like the story, but that's a matter of personal taste.
A lot of people don't like Shakespeare, but no one questions whether he was a good writer or not.
If you don't like the writing style, it's because you aren't familiar with the English of this period. Nearly eighty years before Stoker's "Dracula" an idea stolen from Polidori's "The Vampyre", which was an idea stolen from LeFanu's "Carmilla" , this most-original horror masterpiece was born. So, your only question is, "Is this really the uncensored version? Because I've only seen one other verified version, and it's over twenty dollars in paperback.
All the others claiming to be the version have been disproved. The only preface is Shelley's own original. There is no introduction, no commentary or editorial credits whatsoever. There are no illustrations, and the spelling and language have not been edited. Have a good thesaurus handy. So, here it is, the author's original script, no frills, for a bargain price. Which is exactly what I was looking for.
And I actually didn't hate it this time! Funny how these things work out, huh? I've read some articles about this book as well, and they talk about how this book is representative of everything from abandonment and isolation to dysfunctional father-son relationships to queerness, and honestly, if my English teacher had gone into more depth about that kind of stuff, I might have been more interested the first time around.
Anyway, I definitely sympathized with the monster. He was so utterly and completely alone.

He spent years literally alone, living in sheds and caves and out in the wilderness, on the outside of humanity looking in. He was abandoned and isolated and treated horribly by everyone. Even his own creator did nothing but insult and shun him. The poor guy didn't even have a name, and that's just really sad. He made a mistakea horrible mistake born of obsessive fervor and arrogance, but a mistake nonetheless.
Haven't you ever done something and then worried that someone would to find out or that something bad would come of it, even if it was just sneaking a cookie before dinner as a kid? Now imagine that feeling x And I can understand why he was hesitant to create anotherhe didn't want to make the same mistake twice. So I think his feelings of despair and horror and guilt and grief made sense, if nothing else. The way I see it, neither character is entirely free from blamethe monster murdered innocents, and nothing can excuse thatbut Victor never should have created the monster in the first place if he was going to abandon him.
It was essentially like someone having a child and then neglecting them. Once the monster was alive, it was Victor's responsibility to care for him, and he failed entirely at that. I think I could have forgiven the mistake of making the monster in the first place if Victor had just taken responsibility and cared for him. Probably all the bad things could've been avoided if he'd done that.
The creation wasn't "born" a monster; it was the way he was treated that made him a monster. Here's another thought I had. Victor didn't want to create a mate because he didn't know if she'd turn out to be even more dangerous, right? But people have babies every day without knowing what they'll be like when they grow up. Some people do become murderers.

And the monster in the book only became one because he had no love or companionship. So by that logic, Victor probably should have just taken his chances and created a mate. This book also made me ponder about soulsdid the monster have a soul? But, as is the case with most of the classics I've read so far, the problem I had with this book was that it had so many words but so little meat.

Kind of like this review, to be honest. I don't know how it got so long. Everyone was so long-winded. There would be pages and pages about the despair a single character felt over a single thing that happened even though a couple short sentences could've expressed it just as well. No bolts, no stitches, no flat head. And he doesn't lurch; he's larger than the average human, but his limbs are in proportion, and he's described as being agile and fast.
The way I envision it which is just my interpretation, not right or wrong , the reason he's so horrifying isn't because he's so non-human but rather because he does look human, but I like this artwork link can found in my review on my blog or Goodreads best of all the ones I've seen.
