A review by sammspott
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein, by Kiersten White


White's reimagining of Shelley's "Frankenstein" is possibly the most remarkably brilliant and unexpected novel I have read in quite a long time. White took an already dark and horrific tale, and re-spun it to reveal a girl whose only desire was to belong, a boy teeming with madness, and an incredibly unique take on the genesis of man's attempt to cheat death. This is a tale Shelley would indeed be proud of.
