Personally, I absolutely loved Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. This book, in a way, was like an alternate ending to the original novel. The descriptions were, for the most part, quite accurate. I really liked the references to Jekyll and Hyde and the back story about their lineage, and Claire/Sophie's brother, who sought to destroy the last of the Hydes. The time in which the story was set is also interesting, because it gave some insight about how the monsters and creatures abhorred by humanity would be like today and how they'd be treated should they make an appearance. All in all, I enjoyed this book to the fullest.
