Frankissstein: A Love Story | Jeanette Winterson
post image

"What is the point of progress if it benefits the few while the many suffer?"

This is my first book by Winterson and I greatly enjoyed it. Sharp, funny, lots of food for thought. Toggles back and forth between the near future (sexbots and the rise of AI) and the past (Mary Shelley conceiving Frankenstein!). Many layers and ideas.

(However, TW for a pretty intense rape scene)

Adult, sci-fi, strange, LGBTQ, cryogenics, and sex dolls - story including Shelly, Byron, and Stein. Good -very good.
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? 4w
