[ Books ] Frankisstein - Jeanette Winterson

Frankissstein: A Love StoryFrankissstein: A Love Story by Jeanette Winterson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I hated the title. And the day-glow pink cover. And it took me a while to get into the book -contrary to what I was expecting, I took better to the Mary Shelley part of the story at first. It did grow on me, however and I ended up liking it. There's been a few of this kind of riffing on a previous literary work, like the Hag Seed by Margaret Atwood -which, again I didn't think I would take to and ended up liking a lot.

The book is an easy read and there's a bit more than meets the eye at first. I liked it.
