Is this the most poorly adapted novel of all time?

I was floored by this novel. There is so much in it that someone who solely knows of the pop culture icon of "Frankenstein's monster" would never know. I was particularly shocked to find that Frankenstein's monster isn't a grunting beast. He is ugly, but he is actually the novel's most eloquent and tragic character. Viktor Frankenstein wasn't a mad scientist. He was a brilliant young man who gained the power of a God, yet unlike God, he was selfish and didn't consider the well-being of his creation. There's a lot more to discuss. Regardless, it's just insane to me that this extremely fucked up, dark novel has been so utterly butchered in pop culture.

Any other thoughts?

Maybe the book is a metaphor for the transformative power of pop culture.

Robert de Niro and Kenneth Branagh made a movie in the 90s that was easily the best adaptation of the novel. De Niro is standard De Niro, but more squinty and touches his mole more. Branagh is the comfirmed bachelor who cheats on his partner a lot.

If I remember right, the movie as a whole is....reddit at best, but I remember the leads being whores towards their emotions.

What does "Reddit at best" exactly mean?

Where exactly did the bolt-headed, green skinned, lurched armed creature come into the public's mind from?

It means the jig is up for OP as he is fake and gay.

Isn't that intended to be allegorical to God's allowance of violence and misery in the world?

I was taking about this with my lady friend the other day, if they were to make a faithful Oscar-bait adaption of Frankenstein it would be such a good movie.
