5.0 von 5 Sternen Achtung
Achtung. Hierbei gilt zu beachten, dass es sich offenbar nicht um 1818 veröffentliche OriginalVersion handelt, sondern um die 1831 überarbeitete Version handelt.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Failed Attempt; or the prolonged Prometheus
What begins as a possibly interesting book (and the basic story - a man creates a being which rebels against him - is appealing) turns into a long-winded epistolary novel: Robert Walton writes to his sister of his journey to the North Pole during which he meets Victor Frankenstein who in turn recalls his life story, the story of creating a so-called "daemon" who also goes...

5.0 von 5 Sternen The real Frankenstein, 17. Januar 2010
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Frankenstein: Or, the Modern Prometheus (Wordsworth Collection) (Taschenbuch)
We all know the monster, stitched together from dead body parts, with a screw through its neck; its image has penetrated popular culture like few others have - it is a true classic. So what can one say?

Frankenstein or the new Prometheus is a fascinating read. First of all, it is totally romantic - full of descriptions of nature and the effect on the protagonists minds. It is filled to the brim with introspect, monologues about feelings and such fare, so whoever can't endure this old-fashioned style might be put off a bit. It also excels (which, as far as I know is typical for Mary Shelley) in the description of subtle nuances in the relation between the novels characters. So it is quite far from the monster mash that some might expect - but for me it was chilling to the bone. The slow build up of the main story, which is ingeniously warped in multiple layers of narrative, the fragile relation between creator and his creation that slowly turns to ultimate doom and above all the powerful vision of a force of nature set free among humankind by the naivete of a young, technically ingenious mind for me conjured up images and thoughts that are there to stay.

The book works on so many levels. As a commentary about parenthood (and the relation of the sexes), as dark omens of the then coming industrial age, of the balance between power and wisdom, the effects of loneliness, the inner workings of human society. Most of the truly great novels offer us a new perspective on human nature - on ourselves. This one does for sure. And for sure it is a really great novel.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Frankenstein: Or, the Modern Prometheus (Wordsworth Collection) (Taschenbuch)
Ich musste mir das Buch für den Englisch Leistungskurs kaufen und meine begeisterung hielt sich in Grenzen, aber sobald angefangen habe ich es in wenigen Tagen durchgelesen, ein echt toller Klassiker!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Failed Attempt; or the prolonged Prometheus, 3. März 2010
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Frankenstein: Or, the Modern Prometheus (Wordsworth Collection) (Taschenbuch)
What begins as a possibly interesting book (and the basic story - a man creates a being which rebels against him - is appealing) turns into a long-winded epistolary novel: Robert Walton writes to his sister of his journey to the North Pole during which he meets Victor Frankenstein who in turn recalls his life story, the story of creating a so-called "daemon" who also goes on to tell not only his story but that of a family he lived near. The form is not particularly well executed and even contains complete letters.

The style is rather naive and one feels Shelley has simply looked up alternative words in a thesaurus and used them regardless of their suitability.

The story is convoluted, full of unbelievable coincidences and verbose - although one should perhaps take into account that the book was first published in 1818. Surprisingly enough, the "monster" is created and disappears again within just a few pages.

The characters are shallow and it is hard to sympathise with the character of Victor Frankenstein - moreover one feels more compassion for the monster he has created.

What was initially to be a short story should have really stayed that way. The expansion to a novel has, in my opinion, made the story tiresome and weak.

All-in-all, this is not a book I would ever recommend: discursive and painfully prolonged.
