It's been almost six years to the day since in first read Frankenstein. I remember being in Friesland with G. and T., but I didn't remember much of the book. Maybe it was a little too difficult then? In any case, it was nice to re-read now. I felt I could grasp a lot more, it didn't seem so difficult anymore. So, in 2008, Frankenstein is still exciting. It's an original, loosely written novel, not easy to categorize. And of course, Milton is all over the place, which makes reading Paradise Lost alongside it all the more interesting.
