Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Frankenstein, loved by many decades of readers and praised by such eminent literary critics as Harold Bloom, seems hardly to need a recommendation. If you haven't read it recently, though, you may not remember the sweeping force of the prose, the grotesque, surreal imagery, and the multilayered doppelgänger themes of Mary Shelley's masterpiece. As fantasy writer Jane Yolen writes of this (the reviewer's favorite) edition, "The strong black and whites of the main text [illustrations] are dark and brooding, with unremitting shadows and stark contrasts. But the central conversation with the monster--who owes nothing to the overused movie image … but is rather the novel's charnel-house composite--is where [Barry] Moser's illustrations show their greatest power ... The viewer can all but smell the powerful stench of the monster's breath as its words spill out across the page. Strong book-making for one of the world's strongest and most remarkable books." Includes an illuminating afterword by Joyce Carol Oates. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up-Full-color drawings, photographs, and reproductions with extended captions have been added to the unedited text of Shelley's novel, thus placing the work in the context of the era in which it was written. The artwork faithfully represents the text and makes this edition appealing to reluctant readers. Unfortunately, many of the captions provide tangential information that, although interesting, interrupts the flow of the story. However, readers will quickly learn that it is not necessary to read every caption and appreciate this volume for its many quality illustrations.

When I bought this book I didn't expect it to be a collector's item. I expected it to be a fairly large sized book but instead it was pocket sized.

Nice binding. Quality paper and type face. No "jitters". Print is small but readable because it is so clear. Good pocket book.

Wow, I expected a full size hardbound book, but this is pocket sized. Yup, it is hardbound. Hey, it has gold edges on the pages! Wow, it has a cloth ribbon book mark. Oh.... I can easily read the print. This is sooooo cool! I can carry it with me. I actually love the size. I think I will order other titles. For the money, it is a great deal! Go to the store and buy a paperback book these days. About the same price for a paperback but these are keepers. If you want full sized, keep looking. If you want a nice book to enjoy, be able to carry it with you with out a hassle, if you want a nice size to put on your night stand, look no further. I think it is a great idea!
