The Monsters: Mary Shelley & The Curse of Frankenstein
The Monsters rocked my socks off about a month ago. I loaned it to Sonika when I visited her, so sadly I can’t give any quotes. Well-researched and equally well-written, The Monsters is a captivating read for anyone interested in Frankenstein, Mary and Percy Shelley, or Lord Byron. If you weren’t interested in these topics before, you might be by a quarter of the way through the book. Oh, and if you’re interested in people who are in love with their half-siblings, this book could be for you. Who knew those Victorians were so explicit in their letters to family members?
