Interesting story. I always assumed as a child growing up that Frankenstein was the monster created by man, or the man created by man, but not that Frankenstein was the actual creator. It made for a more interesting story because I still didn’t know what was going on and had to learn the true tale.

Still, It was yet another story of a man creating some sort of invention/being and running from it as it terrorizes its creators life. Frankenstein travels around the world doing various things and saving people and trying to find his monster, leaving the girl he loves behind. It’s almost Jekyll and Hyde meet Gulliver.
