Monster cleverly and chillingly reanimates a classic tale. Friedrich Hoffman, the so-called monster, recounts how he was falsely accused of killing his fiancee, tortured and killed for his crime, and awoke on the lab table of Victor Frankenstein a man with all manner of gruesome plans. We see inside Friedrichs mind as he embarks on a single-minded quest for vengeance; but at what cost to the remnants of his humanity? Intense and gothic, Monster depicts nineteenth-century Europe in a blaze of depravity, excess and supernatural terrors, in an ingenious tribute to one of literatures greatest works.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An impressive achievement: He manages the difficult trick of creating a voice that sounds authentically like Shelley's while remaining entirely lucid to the contemporary reader ... You don't get much more gothic bang for your buck * Los Angeles Times *
This is juicy material for Franken-fans, and Zeltserman is just faithful enough to the original deliciously so * Booklist (starred review) *
If youre a fan of Frankenstein and the mythos that surrounds it, and love literary horror, this ones for you. Highly recommended! * My Bookish Ways *
