When I picked this book off the shelves, I thought, "Oh man, this'll be cool!" I had already read the original written by Mary Shelley and loved it, so I thought that it would be even cooler in Graphic Novel form. The reality however, was anything but. The pictures were distracting from the words, and everything was written in a sort of tiny cursive font. I gave up halfway through it, because I had barely any idea what was going on. I honestly wouldn't recommend this book to any of my friends.
