Amazing book, and considering the author was only nineteen years old, when published, makes it all the more remarkable. I believe the story was inspired by Mary Shelley’s relationship with with her husband; The monster being his fame, which could be compared to a modern rock star. Also the tragedy of losing a child, is reflected in the novel.
The idea of using written correspondence to explain the story, was copied much later, by Bram Stoker, in “Dracula”
It was difficult with so many narrators. Some were good, a couple very food, but some not so much and then it was distracting. There were a lot of glitches in the audiobook, ie example end of sentence twice during attempts to re-re-record it. The story itself was interesting.
I found much of this book a little tedious. The monster is description of his life was very good! Clearly a teenage girl trying to describe a man's emotions.
