    " Mister Creecher is a new addition to the Frankenstein literature shelf that is utterly origional & new and that in no way is a copy or reflection of Mary Shelley's origional work. It is just as chilling and brilliant as Chris Priestley's other works, such as 'the tales of terror collection' and 'the dead of winter' novel that is also deliciously creepy with lots of twists and turns. This book is wonderfully macabre and genuinely spooky that will send chills down your spine and make you unknowingly keep looking behind your shoulder, as 'the Independant' (newspaper) added that it is "Genuinely, thrillingly horrible" and for a storyline such as this then that is a great compliment. I was apsolutely facinated by the relationship between this creature and the boy because it was something that as a reader you certainly would not expect, hence i found it to be a read that was truly moving & heartwarming. One looks upon Mary Shelley's creation in an almost steriotypical way so that when it comes to someone else writing about this particular character in a conciderably new & different light, it not only throws you off guard but is completely overwhelming & suprising. As the saying goes 'don't judge a book by its cover' well this can also be applied to fictional characters to and our views on them and with Frankenstein you may want to think again when you have read Chris Priestley's rendition. I was utterly captivated from the begininng right through to the very end of this novel as it blew me away and something that i thought was not going to be very good or something that i presumed to be too much like a children's story, completely suprised & shocked me so much so that i did not want to put it down. I am not a huge fan of horror stories but this book had an even balance between gory descriptions and overdoing it in the way of grusome, explicit details that keep you awake at night. It did not take me very long to read as it is only a short novel and one that is very easy to read, that is character-driven and displays all the qualities of a facinating and exciting storyline that really captures ones imagination throughout. Mary Shelley will always be a litertary icon & rightly so, but she would also be proud of what Chris Priestley has achived here which is by no means any discredit to her. It is a beautiful story that is emotive, thought-provoking and throughly gripping and one that does not disapoint whatsoever the only thing it may do is suprise & delight you. "

    " By combining characters from Shelley's Frankenstein and Dicken's Oliver Twist, author Chris Priestley presents an interesting and otherworldly view of Frankenstein in Mister Creecher. It is well written, moves quickly, and leaves us wanting more but left only with our imaginations to finish this satisfying tale. "

    " I was enjoying this book very much and was thinking it could possibly be a 5 star, as I felt it would appeal to reluctant boy readers who would enjoy the storyline, the setting, the language used, and especially the characters who were well developed throughout the story. The book was very well written. However, the ending fell short of my expectations, thus, the 3 stars. "

    " I stumbled across Chris Priestleys books a while ago and have been fascinated with them ever since. He blends accessible and fast paced stories with the essence of the classic gothic terror and suspense story. And as such this story is no different to his earlier books however its style is totally new. This book is one continuous story as it follows the travels of Billy and mister Creecher and their relationship to each other. The book is a fascinating tale of what they experience and see and how they both grow to the characters you eventually recognise and know. Its an interesting read not only for the story but how so familiar characters are woven together to create something totally new and different. "

    " A novel based of Frankenstein, with some smart ideas, but the plot goes way too slowly. "

    " Nice YA retelling of Frankenstein. "

    " Aside from one very, very minor niggle, this was a triumph with an absolutely superb ending. Great stuff. (The minor niggle? One very will conversation between two girls about a servant. It was supposed to be funny but really needs to be cut...) "

    " A children's book but saying that I really enjoyed it. A story about a young orphan who befriends Frankenstein's monster who is out for revenge. Good story with good characters. "

    " Frankenstein's monster meets Oliver Twist in this quirky story by Chris Prietley. Mister Creecher is a monster with a great mind and even bigger heart, saving the life of Billy, a thief and pickpocket. He and Billy's adventures will enthral boys with a taste for adventure. "

    " An interesting take on a classic story. I was a little disappointed and found this one a little difficult to read from start to finish. Just OK. "

    " Not what I expected, quite a thoughtful tale in many ways. "

    " Hmmm. Characters that have absolutely no redeeming value. They started to round themselves out and become human, then sank back into misery. Some violence and swearing. "

    " Really loved this alternative take on Frankenstein, thought it fitted really well with the Nick Dear / Danny Boyle version for the National Theatre. Thought the ending was brilliant, very unexpected and very pleasing. "
