I read this when I was a teen and found it dull and tough to read. Now though, I'm all growed up and my vocabulary has increased to just over 40 words (including, luckily, countenance) I enjoyed this more second time around.
There are two annoying things though with the book. 1. The lack of science, it was like "oh I think I'll make a person, bish, bash, bosh, tadaaaaaaa!!!!!" and then "I don't really like it". 2. Frankenstein is such a pathetic excuse for a man, so much drama each time somebody dies. Was this written by a girl or something?
In conclusion I enjoyed this, the chase and the constant search for revenge made for a gripping read.
