I have selected Frankenstein by Mary Shelly for our November book discussion. When I arrived back east this summer at my dacha in the Taconic Mountains of upstate New York I found the following book on the table: Frankenstein and Philosophy – The Shocking Truth edited by Nicholas Michaud and published by Open Court in 2013. It was there as my son Christopher was the author of one of the chapters. I found it an interesting read and soon came to the realization I never had read Frankenstein but had seen a movie many years ago. Most of the authors of the various chapters of Michaud’s book did not have good words to say about the movie versions.
