Angelika Frankenstein Makes Her Match: A Novel
Angelika Frankenstein Makes Her Match
by Sally Thorne
Pub Date – 9/6/22
This is a great romantic companion to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein which I just recently read. Where Shelley was making a social commentary on the scientific process of just trying to be the first without thinking of the effects on populations or the world or if they should (cough Jurassic Park).
This is a delightfully Gothic reimagining of a very brilliant, odd and gorgeous woman in her dotage of 24 years. She has selected the perfect cadaver to reanimate and has fallen in love before he even awakens. Though her brother makes an interesting creation, hers is a dreamboat.
Just enjoyed all the scenarios these siblings got into and their interactions. The mystery of trying to figure out who her creation used to be was also a fun adventure. Angelika had such a quirky and somewhat naughty personality but she definitely grew as a person through this and her relationships with her family and others around her were better because of it.
Wow that epilogue!
✨I had to add a pic of my girls watching a cow dissection at the SF Exploratorium. I was so surprised at how they stayed so long and were so fascinated. It was so cool.
❓ Are there any fun things in science that interest you?
Thank you avonbooks and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
