Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Book 72, Frankenstein, was a bit of a disappointment.

I found the story fairly basic, stretchy credibility (the monster just happens to stumble across and kill his creator's brother) and very waffily. The prose was so long-winded even by the standards of Victorian novels. Dracula, in comparison, I read a few years ago, and thought that was a good novel with lots of suspense and a story plot. Frankenstein scores 5 out of 10.

Next up I move to the History section of the library and the first book is a series of walks around London for an informal history of Haringey.
