Update: I don’t know the story of Frankenstein

As I’m reading The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein I’m realizing I either know very little about the original story, or this is so cleverly developed into it’s own world around the original basis that it feels entirely new. I’m inclined to believe it’s the second one, but now I’m doubting myself!

It’s quite fantastic so far though. I particularly love Elizabeth’s character, and how unapologetically flawed both her and Victor are. The darkness is delivering, and I felt like I could imagine the gut-turning stench of the attic in Victor’s laboratory. I admit though – the sojourn to Inverness got me immediately thinking back to Macbeth!
