The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein

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 read Frankenstein for a project this fall so maybe I ll use it as an excuse to reread Who knows All I know is that I loved this and I hope you all love it too TW abuse self harm body horror buddyread with my literal favorite person MelanieBlog Goodreads Twitter Instagram Youtube

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

    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 D

    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 fas

    ”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
