One of my favorite classics. I fell in love with the story back in High School and it was one of a few books I remember reading and enjoying. I read it about three times after that. It's such a beautiful tragedy, this story, because it holds a lot of pain and a lot of truth. The idea of keeping someone forever, in a perfect world, is well, perfect. But not ideal. Victor meant well, I believe, but in the end it was all wrong. Bringing it into the real world, I am sure everyone has lost a loved one, many loved ones, but we never forget them. We will always have them in spirit even though we would prefer them alive. Victor had an obsession with living well passed death but in the end madness won and everything else was lost.
