5.0 su 5 stelle Fantastic and enjoyable 6 settembre 2015

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Continuing a classic is not an easy task. From the start I was very drawn into this world and interested in characters. The author creates an air of mystery which makes for an exciting page turner. The reader is discovering this intriguing world along with the main character, Ernest Frankenstein. I found myself looking forward to the journey with each turn of the page. The author does a great job using descriptive imagery for each scene so that the reader feels like there are there alongside each character. A very good and enjoyable read which I highly recommend!

I'm never certain what I'm going to get when I begin reading a book that is tied to a classic piece of literature. In this case, I thought this was an intelligently written and compelling book that explored some new avenues I hadn't thought of before and in many ways improved upon the ideas the original work left off with.

If you have ever wondered what happened to the remaining family of Viktor Frankenstein after his (theoretical) demise in the Arctic, this book explores that nicely. The dialogue was well written and appropriate for the time period featured in the novel. I was both surprised and a delighted to find that the author didn't stray too far from the original work when building the past history for these characters. I don't like it much when an author tries to rewrite a classic, and Pete Planisek didn't do that. He stuck by the basic premise of what of "Frankenstein" and joined it to the writing in this book, still truly managing to make this very original and his own.

The story has a good pace and there is a lot that happens, so you don't fall asleep while reading it. There was no lag time when the author reached the middle and I appreciated that the end was open for the next book, but didn't leave the reader hanging with more questions than answers. He never lost focus on his plot.

The encounters with "the creature" actually live up to the terrifying being that was crafted in the original Frankenstein, which must have been a challenge to accomplish. I found this was a hard book for me to put down and walk away from, and it kept me up late into the night finishing it. It really is very good.

The only thing I would have changed about this novel, was the amount of reminiscing the characters did. While I understood the need to give them all a history and looking into the past was better for the reader's knowledge base of them, there were times I felt the author got carried away with the past and forgot to include much information about the character's present life.

Overall this was an exciting read and I would recommend it to anyone who loves the classic, or anyone looking for a good book with some unforeseen twists.

This review is based on a digital copy from the publisher.

I will most definitely look for the rest of this series.
4.0 su 5 stelle This is a complex, well thought out and exceptionally entertaining novel. 10 maggio 2014
Di David L. Brzeski - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

OK, Planisek, where’s book two?
This is the first book of a trilogy, and trilogies can be very frustrating when they’re this interesting, and the following parts are not yet available.
There are a lot of “sequels” to ‘Frankenstein’ around, but this one easily puts all the others in the shade. So much so that, in my own head, I’m accepting this as cannon with the original.
Ernest Frankenstein is the brother of Victor, creator of the famous “monster”. He’s relocated to Ireland, after the deaths of his entire family, and is married to Ailis Iierney Frankenstein. Ernest returns to the city of his birth, Geneva, to find out the truth about the mysterious fate of his brother, Victor. He leaves his wife pregnant and gravely ill, although he isn’t aware of this. As he continues on his quest, he meets his wife’s half-sister, now a spy for the French, and a mysterious clan of gypsies, now divided into two warring factions over differing interpretations of an ancient prophecy. Victor’s creation is ever present, but solidly in the background for most of the book and Ernest is totally unaware of the details of his brother’s work.
The book is well-written and meticulously researched. It’s set for the most part in 1809, but has frequent flashbacks to events involving the Frankenstein clan—blissfully unaware of exactly what Victor is up to—which run concurrently with Mary Shelley’s novel.
If I have any criticism, it’s that the character of Ernest’s best friend, Jack Clerval—the son of Henry Clerval from the original novel—reads very American to me. I’m fairly sure the Clerval family had no American roots, so perhaps Planisek, who is American, slipped in his prose style a little here.
This is a complex, well thought out and exceptionally entertaining novel. As I mentioned, this is the first of three books, but it does end in a reasonably satisfying place. Nevertheless, I eagerly await volume two.
5.0 su 5 stelle NOT A reworking of the classic 12 luglio 2013
Di Cate's Book Nut Hut - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This is not a rewriting of the Mary Shelley classic; it hasn't been twisted around, given a new plot or new characters. This book continues from the point Mary Shelley ended in Frankenstein, and does so in a seamless manner.

I'm probably like most lovers of the classics, when something like this is released, never certain of what is going to appear between the covers. This book will really open your eyes and make you think. It is a compelling and very intelligently written book and it explores some new directions that hadn't occurred to me whilst reading Mary Shelley's work. In many aspects it actually goes as far as to improve upon the ideas the original work ended with.

I have often wondered what happened to the remaining family of Viktor Frankenstein after his (supposed) death in the Arctic; this book explores that question very well, and in depth. In building and developing the characters, the Author did an outstanding job of not straying too far from the original work when it came to their past history. It was apparent that not only had the Author read Mary Shelley's work, he had studied it in depth to make sure his `sequel' was credible and stuck to the basic premise of her original work, grafting it to his own writing but still managing to make his novel very much his own and, very much an original piece of work.

The dialogue is very well written, and stays true and appropriate for the time in which the book is set. It fills each page with mystery and intrigue in an already dark and ominous world that truly transported me into the past. The novel has a good pace, not too slow and not too fast, and there is a lot happening, oh boy is there. Not too much that you become bogged down and lost, but enough to make you want to keep turning the page to continue on with the journey. The end of the book is an opening for the next in this series of 3, but didn't end leaving the reader with more questions than answers, so this could be read as a standalone, however, I defy anyone to be able to do that.

I was very intrigued as to how the Author would portray the first encounter with the `monster', and I was not disappointed at all. Not only the first, but all encounters, live up to that terrifying portrait that was painted in the original; a seemingly insurmountable challenge that the Author overcame with ease. It didn't make me change my original thoughts on the 'monster' at all, only served to strengthen a possibility I had put forward during my 'A' level Literature class.

This is a must read for all lovers of the classics, and anyone who loves a good read with plenty of unforeseen twists and turns. It is an exciting read one which I found very hard to put down and kept me up far later than it should have as I wanted to read to the end. Once at the end, it left me with a need to plunge straight into the other 2 books. Yes, it really is that good, and I wish it had been around when I was doing my English Literature `A' levels.
