But then I looked at the trailer, and I was blown away. It was yet another Tim diamond-in-the-rough; sweet, real, and heart/soul touching.
The same thing happened with both the novelization and the movie, later on. It is now officially one of my Tim Burton top 6: "Edward Scissorhands", "James and the Giant Peach", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", "Corpse Bride", "Alice in Wonderland", and last but most certainly not least, "Frankenweenie".
Sparky ranks right up there with Old Dan/Little Ann, Old Yeller, Lassie, Pluto, Toto, and every other literary dog who has proven him/herself to truly be 'man's best friend'.
Victor himself may be intersted in science, but his heart is NOT made of the same material as his tools. "This isn't an experiment; it's my dog." (Side note: he loves classic novels such as 'Phantom' and '20 Thousand Leagues' as well.)
The relationship between Victor and Sparky itself is altogether reminescent of Dorothy Gale and Toto and truly heart-warming; Sparky isn't Victor's 'pet', and Victor is not Sparky's master; they are each other's best friends, Victor is Sparky's boy.
We are shown that it's more than okay for a boy to show his grief and shed tears; we see both of these in the movie.
Things that I DISlike:
Victor Frankenstein and Elsa Van Helsing DO NOT have a crush on each other!
Edgar, Weird Girl, and Mr. Whiskers are cre-epy to the NTH degree!
This young Frankenstein (yes that's him!)of the modern era has something happen that changes his young life. With a grievous loss he finds that life can be...harnessed...controlled. But what if that power and knowledge of science fell into the wrong hands?
Well, it does. You want to see what craziness ensues? What else can be brought to life and at what consequence?
So, a wonderfully easy read but delightfully gripping. Sparkysaurus, I love you, too.
The edition I read had black paper with white text, which was really interesting! Though it was slightly hard to read in dim rooms. So just make sure you had adequate lighting when you pick this one up.
