Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein is a retelling of the original book Frankenstein, written by Mary Shelly. Frankenstein is about a young man who has had a somewhat tragic life. After years of studying science, he decides to create his own monster out of loneliness. The creature develops unusual human like feelings and wishes to become a live being. When things don’t go his way, Frankenstein gets angry and breaks loose.
This is a riveting, dark, and heart wrenching story that is completely enjoyable. Every page was filled with elegant pictures that were very detailed. I could have understood the whole book without reading a single word. The color variation in the pictures from full color to black and white creates some really stunning artwork. The pictures are also great because they give you a great visual of what the author wrote. It’s not what I would expect for the characters to look like which makes it that much more entertaining.
I also enjoyed the variation between realistic and nonrealistic drawings. The pictures show emotion and brought out the characters true feelings. the only problem I found with this extremely creative book was that some of the font was written in tiny and in cursive so it was sometimes difficult to read. because of the way it was written and the age of the text, it’s meant for higher level readers. The author chose to use some older words from the original text and I think the author could have added more modern language.
I enjoyed this read more then I thought I would. The pictures were creative and well-illustrated and creatively thought thru. I believe that Gris Grimly gave this classic tale a new twist that makes fun and a great read. I think this is a great read for those who enjoy a visual and like books that include pictures. If you dare to enter the world of Gris Grimly’s spooky tale then read Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein!
