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


This was a good read! I enjoyed the re-telling of Frankenstein from Elizabeth’s perspective. Her initial complicity in Victor’s actions is believable and does much to cast his actions as those of a compelling sociopath.

Elizabeth’s refuge in nature is a nice contrast to Shelley’s original themes of Victor’s beast being a commentary on modernization/industrialization. Obviously, a lot of research was done - and it is evident in the book.
