I would like to begin by saying that I watched one of the Frankenstein movies and it never said that Elizabeth was Victor’s adopted sibling. This entire time I thought that he was in love with his biological sister. Thank the Gods that that is not the case, though. They really should have cleared that up for me in the cinema.
Okay- onto the review of the book’s style.
It’s a very well-written book and I like that- unlike the movie- it gets to the whole ‘reanimating a corpse’ thing pretty quickly. It’s kind of old-style prose, but I’m used to reading that, so I can comprehend it easily. I always like the framing device of the letters and how it teases at what everything is leading to.
I’m incredibly eager to see how the book unfolds compared to the movie.
