Reviews

[Zeltserman writes] spare and crisp prose, believable dialogue, imaginative plot twists, and tightly wound characters who don''t wear out their welcome. --- Newsday <br>


Repudiating the 'outrageous fabrication' of Victor Frankenstein's story as told by Mary Shelley is the aim of this imaginative and grotesque novel from the revisionist perspective of the monster . . . Zeltserman's monster is every bit as eloquent as Shelley's, though his rage is more focused.This is juicy material for Franken-fans, and Zeltserman is just faithful enough to the original (he, too, ends with the fateful wedding night and the icebound ship) that his many fresh contributions feel entirely normal. Well, abnormal , to be accurate, but deliciously so. ----Starred Booklist Review <br>
