|review||A beautifully written tale of the apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein – the very creator of his own monster. Full of angst, adventure, horror and most importantly the touching connection and the immense affection Victor possessed towards his older twin brother, Konrad – despite their typical sibling rivalry, having being Konrad ‘always’ the ‘perfect’ one of the twins. And yet, when Konrad, falls ill, the arrogant Victor prepares to sacrifice it all for him.A tale that portrayed all the ups and downs of never-ending conflict that whirred and revolved uncontrollably within the mind and soul of a unique young man who was destined to create something that will eventually tear the very fabric of nature itself.
All in all, a novel which had an ending that was able the shatter the very core of my being and yet want me begging for more.
It was shocking, and terrifying at the same time. It was sad and yet stupendously brilliant. It just made the novel… complete, in a way. There will be sequel. Definitely a sequel. How could there not be sequel?! This book deserves a sequel. Its too perfect to be left on its own. I’m really looking forward to read more works of Kenneth Oppel.
