For those who like something out of the ordinary.

I loved the idea of writing a story about the daughters of mad scientists in literature (Jekyll/Hyde, Moreau, Frankenstein, Rappaccini). Each character has their own defined personality, and they mix well together. The comments in the narrative can seem distracting, but I was conquered by the touch of humor they provide.

I really enjoyed this story quite a bit. I'm seriously looking forward to the others in this series. This monster mash-up is perfect for me. The way it was written was quite cute and comical. I was giggling the entire way through. 🖤

I have taught Frankenstein, so this book was intriguing. The story switches viewpoints from Mary Shelley writing her novel to a character named Ry, a doctor, who is exploring the development of artificial intelligence and robotics. I would have liked more character development, but the story is engaging. It raises more questions about its subject than it answers, and I love books that give me more to think about.

I have always loved the original Frankenstein and I thought this re-telling really did the story justice. It poses the very good question of what the experience would have looked liked from the perspective of a woman. I was impressed by the insight into the real narcissistic horror here. I think Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley would be proud and I will look further into this author.

@Susanita thanks for the tag! #litsylearn
1. I have 2 brothers. I collect Funko POPS. I have 4 tattoos. 🤔
2. I‘ll just say it...I hated The Goldfinch! 😠
3. I met the author of the tagged book, which is a mashup of Pride & Prejudice and Frankenstein, two of my faves. He also teaches at my alma mater, though I didn‘t have him as a teacher when I was there. 😊
4. I guess too cold...that way, I can pile on layers and bury myself under blankets! 🥶

Judybskt I‘m guessing you don‘t have 4 tattoos? 3w

This book is fabulous! I love how it brings together some many other books & characters in such a perfect way! Especially enjoy the style of writing where the characters add their notes and observations in the margins as it were!
