Imaginative fiction pulling from a variety of sources Notably Mary Shelley the person Frankenstein the book concept and character and a hodgepodge of hot topics such as technology transgender issues and Brexit Think ueer theory and postmodernism applied to Frankenstein Then apply Frankenstein to sex dollsThe idea is fantastic and is well executed most of the time Probably not intended for casual summer reading however If I were in the middle of writing a thesis on Frankenstein I'm sure I would relish every page and want to write 5000 words on how Winterson futurizes Mary ShelleyAs it is I'm only a slightly above average Frankenstein enthusiast It's one of my favorite books for sure but I didn't have it memorized enough to fully 'get' Frankissstein At least not enough to find it particularly entertaining About halfway through the novelty wore off and the storyline got too confusing for me to follow with any serious interestCertainly a fine achievement in writing and lovers of the Shelleys will discover plenty to admire but for me too philosophical without a concise narrative

Frankenstein reanimatedPart fictionalised life story of Mary Shelley part bonkers ‘mad scientist’ caper set in the five minutes from now future Frankissstein is riotously funny philosophically rich and one of a kindLake Geneva 1816 18 year old Mary Shelley her husband Percy Bysshe Shelley Lord Byron John Polidori and Clair Clairmont are holed up during a storm They pass the time with ghost stories and talk of galvanism consciousness and loom smashing Luddites as Shelley begins writing her famous Frankenstein We then follow Shelley’s life in pensive beautifully drawn chapters that would make for a stunning historical fiction novel on their ownThe futurenow Transgender non binary doctor Ry Shelley charismatic scientist Victor Stein sexbot magnate Ron Lord Lord By Ron get it journalist Polly D and religious evangelist Claire are caught up in a madcap plot involving cryonics and stolen body parts It’s a dizzying ride with some characters prone to crude sex jokes while others are likely to lapse into philosophical debates on transhumanism Novels that employ humour can be hit or miss particularly when the gags are as ribald and dorky as they are here Whether or not it happens to tickle your funny bone will probably be the difference between finding Frankissstein enormous fun or just sillyWinterson shrewdly draws the parallels between Mary Shelley’s time and our own the disruption of the Industrial Revolution euating with today’s anxieties over automation; the potential for AI to actualise what Shelley envisaged – autonomous thinking artificial life Cryonics also features in the plot but isn’t afforded much seriousness To me that makes sense because right now it’s the AI that really frightens us our 21st century monsters are stitched together from zeroes and ones Clever funny and than a little nutty Frankissstein is hugely entertaining and just right for right now 45 stars

I am disappointed and deeply uncomfortable yikes I am not trans so please take my review with a grain of salt but dear god at best this book is irresponsibly and deeply clueless and in bad taste at worst it's vaguely terfy why does a cis woman who does not even understand the most basic things about gender such as trans men are men being trans and being gay is not the same and being trans is not inherently about feminism think that she can write a book about gender with a trans man as the protagonist it was bad giving the benefit of the doubt the nicest thing I can say here is that this author does not understand how gender works I highly doubt that any trans men were consulted while writing this book there was a weird focus on his genitals too overall this feels very disrespectful toward trans people As a sidenote there was also some fatphobia in this book and even apart of the trans representation the feminist themes were very shallow and one noteAlso the book did this annoying thing where it didn't use uotation marks for its dialogue because it's so literary
