    There is no joy without its attendant pain.Despite the above citation, this wasfun than exemplary Ackroyd flips the Frankenstein myth with panache The good doctor hangs out with Shelley and Byron Science crackles, but only under the penumbra of abject poverty Mayhew reaches Freud and together pierce Gothic expectations There s less a Miltonic fall than a fissure.

    What if Frankenstein creates its own creature A surprisingly and great book by Peter Ackroyd with plenty of famous writers among the characters, like Mary Shelley, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Daniel Westbrook, Harriet Westbrook, John Polidori, Fred Shoebury, George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron.Hard to understand why this book has been underrated by some reviews.

    Have you ever read a book and have just been entirely unsure as to why the author decided to take the time to write it That s pretty much how I feel aboutThe Casebook of Victor Frankensteinby Peter Ackroyd A slightly adjusted retelling of the Frankenstein story by Mary Shelley, the novel does little to improve or grow upon the original story Essentially, Victor Frankenstein, a yo

    What would ve happened if Dr Frankenstein had actually lived and knew the Shelleys That s the question that Peter Ackroyd answers in this book.Frankenstein travels to study at Oxford where he meets Percy Shelley The two hit it off and become friends What then follows is a commingling of Shelley s life with the story of Frankenstein It s a surprising good book, and does seem to play a l

    Rewriting a Classic Review from 2011 I sat quite still and observed the heavens revolving above my head, and wondered if they were the origin of my being Or had I come from the creeping waters of the river Or from the mild earth that nurtured all the plants and flowers of the world When at first light a wood pigeon came before me, I took part in its existence and pecked upon the ground when

    How do you feel about things that go bump in the night Me, not so good I am a coward I am Chief Coward from Cowardville I avoid scary movies and scary books and scary people too Soas much I was looking forward to reading Peter Ackroyd s new book The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein the F word frightened me off a bit But then the lure was too strong and I caved.In this retelling of Frankenstein on t

    Initially, I found it difficult to get into a reading rhythm with this book, but once I did, I found in completely engaging This is a retelling of Shelley s horror classic, and the author has made liberal use of real life figures, such as Lord Byron, Polidori, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and, of course, Mary Shelley herself.Phenomenally descriptive, many passages read like poetry this author is a master at se

    Now this islike it.Peter Ackroyd makes Victor Frankenstein a student at Cambridge, which enables Victor to make the acquaintance of Percy Bysshe Shelley and his various associates, including a certain Mary Godwin, and also lets Ackroyd find a way to shift the bulk of the action to his own home turf, London There s an interestingly Dickensian overtone at times Ackroyd s narrative is substantial, but poised, wi

    The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein by Peter Ackroyd is a retelling of the gothic classic Frankenstein by Mary Shelley As with all retellings, one approaches the new version with trepidation Is there a need to retell a story that has already been told so well Will this version offer anything new or interesting What, if anything will be lost in translation When I began the novel, I stepped back a bit from my own exp

    I love retellings of the haunted summer of 1816, wherein Byron, Shelley, and Mary Shelley read ghost stories to each other and came up with the bet to produce the scariest ghost story of them all supposedly leading to Mary Shelley s dreams wherein she came up with the idea for the novel Frankenstein In Peter Ackroyd s version, Dr Frankenstein is a real person in attendance at this haunted gathering His friendship with Pe
