    Brianna Silva

    This was a great adaptation. It captured the page-turning suspense of the original novel, and the beautiful illustrations reflected the story's gothic angst and dark, tragic tone. If you want to experience Frankenstein in an afternoon, I recommend this graphic novel. :)

    This is what I'd imagine a Drunk History of Frankenstein to be like. It barely skimmed the surface of the story, it jumped around and the timeline was very confusing. It was so dumbed down that it almost seemed condescending?

    Katz's illustrations and spare narrative get to the essence of Mary Shelley's "hideous progeny." Necessarily, the plot has been much abridged, but Katz stays true to Shelley's characterization and themes, and his illustrations are appealing--they create sympathy for the offspring of Victor Frankenstein's scientific mucking, while making clear who the monster really is. Another plus--the book can be read in one quick sitting.

    Excellent adaptation of the original. The art here managed to add to the story, and the text was easy to read. It was relatively true to the original and serves as an excellent introduction to the full novel. While nothing can truly match the full text, the illustrations here made the version, in some ways, even more powerful. It broke my heart. Highly recommended. Content Advisory: murder, hatred, death...and everything you'd expect from Frankenstein

    I thought the book was phenomenal. The illustrations were exquisite and gives the novel a unique touch while providing a better understanding of the story. I also found the language simplistic enough to understand clearly, but giving the book a complex background which I found interesting. If you are interested in old dark stories like Edgar Allan Poe than I would recommend this book for you.

    "It is true we shall be monsters, cut off from all the world; but because of that we shall be more attached to one another. I have never been so emotionally wrecked by a classic novel before. I had no idea just how heavy this story was. I identified deeply with Frankenstein's Monster, and that made this story so much better, yet much more heart-breaking.

    I don't care what anyone says. The monster's name was Frankenstein. The doctor was the monster. First time reading Frankenstein. I thought I knew the story from all the Halloween adaptations, but not even close! I got close to tears numerous times. We're all the monster. And the art was cool too.

    Not a fan of graphic novels. Quick read, but should read the original.

    I am not a graphic novel reader, however, I am always searching for ways to entice kids to read classics. I loved the illustrations and the vocab was not dumb downed. Also nice to be able to recommend a graphic novel that does not contain profanity.

    Synopsis: An illustrated and abridged adaptation of Mary Shelley's original novel of Frankenstein. My Review: I have long avoided any of the graphic novel adaptations of my all time favorite book because I don't think the art ever really captures what I imagine the creature to look like, well that was until I stumbled across this version by Pete Katz online. I ordered it hoping for the best based on the cover and was not disappointed!

The condensing of the story is also great, you don't feel like you are loosing anything out of the original story. This is really the best version of Frankenstein that I have come across (besides the original of course), illustrated or even movie!

    Having read the novel four years ago it was nice to revisit the story in an abridged version. The pictures helped with understanding the plot line. I feel bad for the Monster.

    Fun quick read. And easy way to revisit the story of Frankenstein without having to read the whole novel.
