Would you try another book from A. E. Rought and/or Katie Fenton?
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I haven't read Frankenstein, so I can't comment on how faithfully this retelling jives with that book. It starts out good. Everything's pretty obvious but that didn't bother me until the end when I was like "Really? Can't you figure this out?" And there's a sex scene (sort of) that just gets slipped in, which felt like unnecessary filler given its placement. I would have liked to see more character development, especially of Dr. Franks, and less angst (it grows exponentially as the story progresses). The book is high on love story and low on plot, so much so that the ending feels way too rushed. The creep factor wasn't played up enough. In spite of all that, I'm not sorry I listened to the book and will probably do so again.
Any additional comments?
I'm not one for writing Audible reviews, but I don't think this book deserves its current 2 star rating. Hence my review.
