    A breathtakingly brilliant re interpretation of Mary Shelley s Frankenstein for our modern age of troubled political turbulence, so incredibly funny, smart, philosophical and satirical, weaving threads from the past, present and the impact of AI developments in the future Jeanette Winterson has pulled off a scintillating and incisive retelling of the classic novel that posits that hom

    Have you ever read a book where you have to keep re reading paragraphs or even entire pages not because your mind drifted and you don t know what you just read, but because you do know what you read and it delighted you so much I haven t come across many writers who do that for me Jeanette Winterson is an exception and Frankissstein is one of those books Reading this book gave my

    What an unexpected mid winter highlight After casting aside all my should be reading books I decided to bust my way out of a reading slump by picking up this new book by Jeanette Winterson an author I have never read This was a particularly risky undertaking given my recent tussle with another author who also decided to play with robots I am not saying that book spectacularly failed but it wasn t great

    I wasn t sure what to expect from this title as I have never read the classic Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, however it made little difference to the fun I had in reading this retelling of sorts.Mostly it s about Mary Shelley and her sad back story of children lost to disease in her short relationship with her husband Percy, and also about the writing of the story of her monster Frankenstein and then it f

    As soon as I heard about this book I knew I would love it, and I can now safely say that that was an understatement Frankenstein is my favourite novel of all time and Mary Shelley is one of my personal heroes, so to have an author as talented as Jeanette Winterson take on a homage retelling whatever you want to call it of both the novel and Shelley s own life was truly a dream come true This novel is half a fictionalised but seemingly accurate, once you v

    What fun This book is really about the future of the human soul, but it is so much fun that it is never weighed down by the deep philosophical questions that it raises.
