Reviews for Frankenstein

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2006 Spring
Weinberg retains the skeleton of Shelley's plot but sacrifices all complexity of motivation and her thoughtful exploration of what it means to be civilized or even human. Instead, this volume is a fast-paced story of terror and revenge. Barr's illustrations are, unfortunately, indebted to film visions of the monster complete with neck bolts.
