Sigh. It aggrieves me to give a bad review to an Elizabeth Hand novel. She is one of my favorite authors and hearing her read in person is just magical.

I love the Frankenstein tale and I don't mind an author making the Bride a strong character. Dean Koontz has done a wonderful job with this in his Frankenstein series: Prodigal Son, Dead and Alive, etc.

This book, however, I did not enjoy. I disliked the Bride from the very first page. I appreciate the character arc Hand was putting her through but the Bride and I never clicked. Also, this book lacked the atmosphere that most of Hand's books have. Well, at least her original material does and I guess that's the problem. In the future I will stay away from her franchise books. Sorry Liz. ( )
