Blast from the Past: Frankenstein

January 3-7, 2006
So my question is: why didn’t Victor just bring his loved ones back to life if he knew how to reanimate dead tissue? I guess I would have reservations about that too. Like “Would their mind and feelings still be the same?” Or would the monster come back and just kill them all again? I mean, losing them once would be enough for me.

Reminded me of Count of Monte Cristo in the aspect of “vengeance is sweet.” Dantes and Frankenstein both avenged the loss of their loved ones, but Dantes succeeded.

“The companions of our childhood always possess a certain power over our minds which hardly any later friend can obtain.”

Blast from the Past is a weekly post I write that focuses on a book I read long before I ever had a blog about books. While I didn’t “book blog” until a couple of years ago, I’ve kept a reading journal of sorts for about 6 years. Blast from the Past is essentially just my way of digitalizing my old book journals–and reminding me what I thought of books long since read. I think it will be a fun way to look at how my reading selections have changed and what I like most in the books I read.
