Antes de conocer a los Frankenstein Elizabeth Lavenza moría de hambre sufría los maltratos de su cuidadora y estaba a un paso de ser expulsada a la calle LosFrankenstein le dieron un hogar pero a cambio de un precio muy alto ser la amiga más íntima de su extraño. Sometimes we were strangers even to ourselves For the first two thirds I thought this book was pretty good Frankenstein is one of my favourite books and I like it when authors give a voice and different perspective to a side character But it is in the final third when this book goes from pretty good to excellentThe Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein is essentially a retelling of Frankenstein from the perspective of Elizabeth an orphan taken in by the Frankenstein family and later the fianc e of Victor I think this book will work much better for those familiar with the original as it gives a lot of nods to the story It s hard to appreciate some of the clever twists the author takes without knowing what it s based onIn this book Elizabeth becomes an ever complex character She s smart and manipulative And if she lingers in Victor s shadow then that s because she knows that s where she needs to be to get what she wantsThrough her eyes the tortured genius of Victor becomes a sometimes frightening thing and yet nothing is as terrifying as being a woman in 18th Century Europe The stifling constraints placed on women and their ambitions are palpable as the story unfolds It was so easy for a woman to be dismissed as whiny or silly or worse madWhen Victor goes missing in Ingolstadt and writes no letters Elizabeth begins to track him down Her investigation leads her down dark paths to charnel houses and secret laboratories What has Victor been up to Knowing the truth didn t take anything away from reading In fact it made those mysterious dark shadows all the creepier This story largely fills in gaps in the original tale while shedding a completely new light on it It s smart how Kiersten White has managed to keep a lot the same while also creating a bigger and very different looking pictureThe original Frankenstein calls into uestion what it really means to be a monster and indeed who the real monsters are I think White might have answered that uestionBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Tantra y salchicha.

Hijo VictorEn pos de volverse imprescindible Elizabeth se convirtió en una maestra dela manipulación y el engaño capaz de hacer cualuier cosa por sobrevivir y mantener su vida acomodada Cualuier cosaEspecialmente cubrir las excentricidades y perversiones de su Vi. Elizabeth he said his tone firm and chiding He lifted my chin and fixed my eyes with his You are mine You have been since the first day we met You will be mine forever My absence should not have caused you to doubt the firmness and steadfastness of my attachment to you It will never fade This turned out to be a pretty twisted love story I read Frankenstein in details than anyone should ever read a book when I was in 10th grade I was in Academic Decathlon and that year for the literature portion we had to read Frankenstein I was determined to master the book and I wrote a summary for it that was practically as long as the book itself And therein lies my only complaint about this book It s just too damned longWhich is not to say it s not good It is excellent It is the story of Elizabeth Lavenza the foster child of the Frankensteins Far details are present in this book than in the original the story is fleshed out so much But the fact that it works as a retelling because it is believableElizabeth was an orphaned child condemned to a miserable life The young Victor was an uncontrollable strange little boy whose parents despaired of him Elizabeth got a new life when she was sold to the Frankensteins as a playmate for Victor who became attached to her from the very first meetingElizabeth is strong cunning She might have been young but from the age of five she has learned survival Survival meant Victor and making herself indispensable to him She molds herself to fit her new life and to what Victor needs I had become this girl in order to survive but the longer I lived in her body the easier it was to simply be her She never forgets what she doesn t have which is everything The only thing that keeps her in the wealthy Frankenstein household and off the streets or another orphanage is her ability to control the volatile Victor I used smiles like currency They were the only currency I ever had My dresses my shoes my ribbons they all belonged to the Frankensteins The situations in the book are beautifully explained many times I found myself exclaiming well this isn t true because in the book only to have everything seamlessly explained and incorporated chapters laterIt really is such a good book but again It is just too Damned Long

    I'm so disappointed oh myI really enjoyed the first 150 pages or so even though most people who disliked this seem to think it was the boring part of the book lol but it just went downhill after thisEverything happened so fast and was unnecessarily rushed Why not write a longer book? It only had around 280 pages anyway

    Closer to 45 stars due to pacing issues but I enjoyed the book enough to round it up to 5 stars This is a creepy gothic story that reframes the narrative from a woman’s perspective and a toxic relationship that s

    ARC provided by Random House in exchange for an honest review “Some nights when even my child’s heart knew that what I had been asked to endure was too much I would stand on the edge of the lake lift my face to the stars and scream Nothing ever called back Even among the creeping things of the lake’s night I was alone Until Victor” Kiersten White wrote this book to honor the fact that 2018 is the 200th annivers

    ”While I saw the destruction of the tree as nature’s beauty Victor saw power – power to light up the night and banish darkness power to end a centuries old life in a single strike – that he cannot control or access And nothing bothers Victor than something he cannot control”This book was recommended to me by Mara at the beginning of October and I’m so glad I followed her recommendation If not I would have missed out on
