Antes de conocer a los Frankenstein Elizabeth Lavenza moría de hambre sufría los maltratos de su cuidadora y estaba a un paso de ser expulsada a la calle LosFrankenstein le dieron un hogar pero a cambio de un precio muy alto ser la amiga más íntima de su extraño Sometimes we were strangers even to ourselves For the first two thirds I thought this book was pretty good Frankenstein is one of my favourite books and I like it when authors give a voice and different perspective to a side character But it is in the final third when this book goes from pretty good to excellentThe Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein is essentially a retelling of Frankenstein from the perspective of Elizabeth an orphan taken in by the Frankenstein family and later the fianc e of Victor I think this book will work much better for those familiar with the original as it gives a lot of nods to the story It s hard to appreciate some of the clever twists the author takes without knowing what it s based onIn this book Elizabeth becomes an ever complex character She s smart and manipulative And if she lingers in Victor s shadow then that s because she knows that s where she needs to be to get what she wantsThrough her eyes the tortured genius of Victor becomes a sometimes frightening thing and yet nothing is as terrifying as being a woman in 18th Century Europe The stifling constraints placed on women and their ambitions are palpable as the story unfolds It was so easy for a woman to be dismissed as whiny or silly or worse madWhen Victor goes missing in Ingolstadt and writes no letters Elizabeth begins to track him down Her investigation leads her down dark paths to charnel houses and secret laboratories What has Victor been up to Knowing the truth didn t take anything away from reading In fact it made those mysterious dark shadows all the creepier This story largely fills in gaps in the original tale while shedding a completely new light on it It s smart how Kiersten White has managed to keep a lot the same while also creating a bigger and very different looking pictureThe original Frankenstein calls into uestion what it really means to be a monster and indeed who the real monsters are I think White might have answered that uestionBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Cheating for the Chicken Man knowing what it s based onIn this book Elizabeth becomes an ever complex character She s smart and manipulative And if she lingers in Victor s shadow then that s because she The Last Runaway knows that s where she needs to be to get what she wantsThrough her eyes the tortured genius of Victor becomes a sometimes frightening thing and yet nothing is as terrifying as being a woman in 18th Century Europe The stifling constraints placed on women and their ambitions are palpable as the story unfolds It was so easy for a woman to be dismissed as whiny or silly or worse madWhen Victor goes missing in Ingolstadt and writes no letters Elizabeth begins to track him down Her investigation leads her down dark paths to charnel houses and secret laboratories What has Victor been up to Knowing the truth didn t take anything away from reading In fact it made those mysterious dark shadows all the creepier This story largely fills in gaps in the original tale while shedding a completely new light on it It s smart how Kiersten White has managed to On Tidy Endings keep a lot the same while also creating a bigger and very different looking pictureThe original Frankenstein calls into uestion what it really means to be a monster and indeed who the real monsters are I think White might have answered that uestionBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

Hijo VictorEn pos de volverse imprescindible Elizabeth se convirtió en una maestra dela manipulación y el engaño capaz de hacer cualuier cosa por sobrevivir y mantener su vida acomodada Cualuier cosaEspecialmente cubrir las excentricidades y perversiones de su Vi I m so disappointed oh myI really enjoyed the first 150 pages or so even though most people who disliked this seem to think it was the boring part of the book lol but it just went downhill after thisEverything happened so fast and was unnecessarily rushed Why not write a longer book It only had around 280 pages anyway It read as if White just wanted to finish as uickly as possible Because of that the story got and unbelievable and felt artificially constructed forced even I kind of liked the direction White went with Elizabeth in the beginning of the book She was selfish and absolutely unlikeable but in a well written way But that was also ruined after the sudden change in the story I get that her character was supposed to grow but again it felt forced and unnatural It happened too fast for it be believable Victor also was interesting at the start And again he was ruined by another try of forcing some kind of growth on him not really a positive one but I can t think of another word lol I mean it was obvious in what direction his character would go but it just wasn t done in a good and realistic way I don t want to sound repetitive but again it was too sudden and not portrayed realistically Oh and in regards of any plot twists none of them were unpredictable at all And I m seriously not good at guessing them So that was underwhelming lol Overall I liked the idea and I really enjoyed about half of the book but everything after that completely ruined it for me spoiler aheadI would have liked this if the epilogue didn t happen though It actually would ve been a satisfying ending if they both died that way But oh well here we have another author that is too scared to kill of their characters And what the fuck was the deal with Adam Are you actually trying to convince me that they can live happily ever after with him Sorry but no lmao
