Subject: Frankenstein--for what ability?

Although I have not read the novel Frankenstein, I've been impressed with the depth of issues the 11th grade teacher has his students explore in the video we see for the course. I have juniors in class who, I feel, would relish discussing these issues of science, creation, creator, etc. My concern is that they have low reading levels and low interest in reading.

How difficult is the text of the book? Has anyone used this novel with students who have below-grade level reading abilities and interests?
