The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein summary ß 8 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. You are mine Elizabeth Lavenza and nothing will take you from me Not even death I do not think I expected one of the best books I read this year to be a retelling of Frankenstein where it s not just about the nature of monstrousness but about the power of women working together and escaping an abusive relationship with intoxicating writing and a morally grey lady as the protagonist And yet here we are I don t think you can talk about this book without talking about the characters because they really do star Their group is so fantastic and I absolutely loved the importance of the various character relationships within the book rather than being driven by romance Elizabeth is primarily driven by her relationship with Justine and to some extent later Henry and Mary Elizabeth one of the most interesting and developed narrators I have had the pleasure of reading about this year she is so deeply morally ambiguous yet so sympathetic to the audience and also the narrative agency HER MIND Mary definitely a lesbian I have no evidence for this she s just gay book nerd badass Justine the naive or stereotypically ladylike lady character in this novel and yet is treated just as well by the story as Elizabeth and Mary deserved better Henry a good man a pure man the only man we ve ever trusted I support him Victor no a bad man and we hate himI absolutely loved the way Kiersten White wrote the abusive relationship at the heart of this we see the fucked up nature of that relationship long before Elizabeth does but it never feels as if Elizabeth should ve known better In every moment she has full audience sympathy in every moment even if I hated her actions I understood her The narrative puts you so far into her mind that it is impossible to look away and it is glorious I think the focus on agency within a narrative should be clear but I really do want to say this is why retellings are my favorite Taking a book that is about the essential nature of humanity from the perspective of a man and flipping its themes solidly is something I will always be in full support of the meta textuality of the narrative is absolutely brilliant And it s not just about one woman it s about the relationships between women and the strength found in them Mary Justine and Elizabeth form such fantastic relationships and each feels so fully formed in a way they may not have in the original narrative I could criticize this the first half is far too slow in my opinion and I still can t decide whether to love or hate the ending but I m not sure it s what I would have wanted but I can already feel an urge to reread and annotate and write even about the themes in this book For me that is a declaration of love I think this book and my new love for Victorian horror convinced me to

The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein summary ß 8 CtorPara todos es un ángel La luz de la vida de VictorSOLO ELLA CONOCE LA VERDADSOBRE SÍ MISMA EN SU INTERIOR ALBERGA OSCURIDAD Y NADIE JAMÁS PODRÁ DETENERLA DESCUBRE ESTA NUEVAVERSIÓN DEL CLÁSICOINMORTAL DE LA MANO DEKIERSTEN WHITE AUTORA DEHIJA DE LAS TINIEBL. 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 she must navigate What s fascinating here is the dynamic of a female character who purposely pigeonholes herself to be a supporting character role that only exists to serve a man s narrative as an act of survival and self preservation I love how this added so much depth to her character and illustrated the restrictions of a woman in 18th century Europe I found the dynamic between Elizabeth and Victor to be very true to abusive relationships and how a woman often must make herself smaller than a man in order to appease him The prevalent complaint among most book reviews is the slow pacing of the story because nothing happens for pretty much the first half of the book However I didn t find this to be an issue because I viewed this as a character study and enjoyed the moments that flashed between present and past in order to build up these characters This is character driven not plot driven and as someone who loved seeing these characters and relationships being slowly crafted and foreshadowing to doom I enjoyed these slower moments and nuances My pacing critiue is so towards the end The last 100 pages are exciting action packed and fly by so uickly that I wish we had time to relish in the new developments that happen It felt imbalanced compared to the beginning 23 where we really got to savor the characters I wish we had spent time with the pivotal turn of Elizabeth s character and the found family trope
