Mary W. Shelley (1797-1851). Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin nació el 30 de agosto de 1797 en Londres (Inglaterra). Era hija única del filósofo William Godwin y la escritora feminista Mary Wollstonecraft. Mary creció y se educó en un ambiente intelectual y progresista, que marcaría fuertemente su personalidad. Comenzó a establecer una relación amorosa en 1814 con el poeta romántico Percy B. Shelley, que en esos momentos estaba casado. La obra más importante de Mary fue creada en unas vacaciones que los Shelley estaban disfrutando en la residencia suiza de Lord Byron. En una noche tormentosa, Byron propuso la elaboración de un relato de terror por parte de cada uno de los asistentes en su mansión. Unos días después de la propuesta, Mary les leyó su creación, Frankenstein o el moderno Prometeo (1817), magistral historia que se convertiría en un clásico de la novela gótica. Murió a causa de un tumor cerebral el 1 de febrero de 1851. Tenía 53 años.

Frankenstein

Narra la historia de Víctor Frankenstein, un joven suizo, estudiante de medicina en Ingolstadt, obsesionado por conocer los secretos del cielo y la tierra. En su afán por desentrañar la misteriosa alma del hombre, Víctor crea un cuerpo a partir de la unión de distintas partes de cadáveres diseccionados. El experimento concluye con éxito cuando Frankenstein le da vida al monstruoso cuerpo. Víctor Frankenstein que comprende en ese momento el horror que ha creado, rechaza con espanto el resultado de su experimento y huye de su laboratorio. Al volver a él, el monstruo ha desaparecido y él cree que todo ha concluido. Pero la sombra de su pecado le persigue: el monstruo tras huir del laboratorio, siente el rechazo de la humanidad y despiertan en él el odio y la sed de venganza.

    " Another great book in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 2/19/2014

    " 3.5 stars. A good sequel to Prodigal Son and I thought the story-line improved from the last book. Looking forward to the third book in the series when it is released. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 2/13/2014

    " Another exciting read in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy Carbajal | 2/13/2014

    " I think I finished this one fast...Victor Helios aka Victor Frankenstein is not only building a super human race, there is something very wrong with them. Not only do they have the capacity to kill and enjoy it, they want to because of envy for the "old race" which is what they call real human beings. They are given only information that Helios feels they need, to do the jobs that need to be done....but the creatures are starting to break down, for beneath all the chaos, anger and envy, the feeling of something missing is eating away at them and some are turning into something else. Creepy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 1/31/2014

    " One of my favorite authors. Love is twist on the Frankenstein story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 1/29/2014

    " As good as the first book! Victor Helios (a.k.a Victor Frankenstein) has created a new race of beings who, though his arrogance blinds him to it, are falling to pieces. Their are twists and turns here I did not expect and the book is a real page turner that I cannot put down. The portrayel of the original Frankenstein's creature is very original, very thoughtful, and yet has solid continuity with Shelley's novel and the Karloff films! It's just a nice story and a well done book. I can hardly wait for the third and final installment of the trilogy, in 2009! This Trilogy is AWESOME! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vassi | 1/26/2014

    " There are not very many books I couldn't put down, this one was one of them. I didn't think the first book was all that great, but, thankfully book two was much better. I think I read it in just a few days (a pretty great accomplishment, considering I never have time to actually read more than a few chapters at a time). This is a great twist on an old, classic Frankenstein concept. Deucalion is a great character, and is doesn't appear in the book as often as I would like - neither does Erika, however, it was a great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 amanda | 1/22/2014

    " they say the third one should be out by now, but it's no where to be found... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 1/19/2014

    " Had this book a long time and didn't quite fancy it but I'm glad I did and I'm awaiting delivery of the rest of the series of frankenstein.Good modern uptake of the frankenstein story. Dean Koontz really knows how to grip the reader. I'd forgotten how much I loved his writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wayne | 1/19/2014

    " very good, typically somewhat let down as a sequil "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 1/4/2014

    " So, it turns out that the Frankenstein series are 5 books for the same story (unlike the Odd Thomas series which finishes each story, per volume). But, that's cool, as it's a good story. Book 2 moved along faster than book 1 and I hope 3-5 are the same. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie Lebovitz | 12/29/2013

    " This was a quick read, but as the middle book in the series, it was pretty useless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 12/22/2013

    " See review on book #1 of series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ladiibbug | 12/16/2013

    " #2 Dean Koontz's Frankenstein series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Agneata | 12/1/2013

    " I enjoyed reading part one and two when they were published. I am disappointed that the third and final book has not been written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebamom7 | 7/25/2013

    " Even better than #1. Can't wait to dig in to #3! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Ann | 7/17/2013

    " Although this has plenty to disturb the reader it is well written and keeps you on the edge until the end, which isn't really the end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Oldham | 1/5/2013

    " Being the second book in the series made it feel like a filler of some sort. Not much happend but a little character development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 12/1/2012

    " This is a really good series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon | 7/10/2012

    " I liked this book, even better than the first. I liked the ending better and I felt satisfied when I was done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 5/3/2012

    " Ace - funnier, sadder and scarier! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess Hanna | 2/19/2012

    " What can I say? I cannot fathom another way the story of Victor Frankenstein could have been continued. Dean and Ed remain faithful to the original story while expanding on the legacy started by Mary Shelley. I love it and can't wait to read the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noreen | 11/22/2011

    " Read this when it first came out before really enjoyed the first two books. The retelling of the Frankenstein story is clever and I actually like the two detectives in the book. Is it great literature no but a fun read yes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 11/14/2011

    " I can't wait until he comes out with the rest of this series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nicole | 9/11/2011

    " Didn't even finish this book. It was too boring, I didn't even care about what was going to happen next. Too many characters, skipping around too much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo | 7/16/2011

    " I can't really say much more about this book other than it was unputdownable. Koontz ups the tension and the action building up to the third and final book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua | 5/24/2011

    " When I first read this, I was a freshman in high school and had no desire to read this novel, but I am very glad I did. It is a wonderful novel that invites the reader to look at oneself and the choices that we take in our own lives that can come with undesirable cost. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexander | 5/23/2011

    " not bad.
    i do enjoy gothic fiction, the way they're written is facinating.
    but i still felt marginally detatched from the characters and story.
    but i watched the 94' movie with Helena Bonham Carter and i was all set :D "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 5/23/2011

    " One of my all time favorites! This is NOT a book about a monster. It is a book about humanity and what it is to be human. Beautifully written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melinda | 5/23/2011

    " I used to teach this book toy tenth graders It was great for discussion. And it was a good one for grabbing the boys which is hard to do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devin | 5/22/2011

    " It was kind of a hard book to read (for me). Some parts were really slow and hard to understand. But it is really a classic that everyone should read. It shows the harshness and brutality of humans towards "different" things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/22/2011

    " I had to read this for an Open Uni course - it is very good "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Drucilla | 5/20/2011

    " Interesting to read the actual story of Frankenstein. It's always nice to read the original version of a story that has been done so many times. it gives you a fresh perpective on the new retellings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 5/20/2011

    " This is a beautifully written tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roman | 5/20/2011

    " interesting for scholars, reflecting the ills of the industrial society...
    not quite enjoyable as a book to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steven | 5/20/2011

    " I thought it was quite dry, the only times it became a page turner was when frankenstein was actually in the scene, and unfortunatly that was probably only an 1/8ish of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan | 5/19/2011

    " I enjoyed the philosophical themes in this book. Definitely a thoughtful book, not nearly the horror the movies all become. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alan | 5/18/2011

    " One of the worst written books in English but one of the great ideas in English literature. The handling of the creature within the narrative is particularly egregious. Read this as it is an important story in modern literature but also notice the nonsensical unfolding account of that creature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 5/18/2011

    " I read this book on a train bound for Scotland in 1995. It has a compelling moral: we create monsters by the way we treat or mistreat people. "
