Frankenstein Book Review

3/5 Stars

By Jim R. McClanahan

I just finished reading Frankenstein (1818) for the first time. The novel was nothing like I expected. The movies Iíve seen took great liberties with the actual storyline, and having read the novel, I can see why they did it. The book is for the most part boring fluff.

Hello, magandang hapon po (good afternoon to you) and welcome to my blog! In this article, I will discuss the brief bilateral history of the Philippines, Russia, the United States of America and Georgia (country).
