I studied Frankenstein for Year 12 English, and if I still think it's a great novel after studying it, it must be good. It's a Gothic novel with some incredibly insightful themes that are still applicable today (maybe even more so with technology; it was written in 1818 by a 21 year old woman). It can be a little bit of a chore to read because it's so eloquent and expressive, but that's typically how books were written at the time, and it added a layer of depth to the story. The monster was incredibly eloquent and complex, Dr Frankenstein was (nearly) everything an immoral mad scientist could be. I learnt a lot and will likely read this multiple times (but maybe after the school experience has worn off).
K to the T
