Frankenstein, for example, never exactly explains in concrete terms exactly how the monster was brought to life, or how it survived, or what it ate, or actual and exact process undertaken to reproduce the experiment.

I think you need to read the book again, Shelley goes into great detail on how the monster survived and ate, although your points on the experiment are true.
