    Remarkable Graphic Representation of Shelley's Novel

    I purchased this book for a high school student who has difficulty reading too many words on a page. She can read Mary Shelley's original with the aid of an audio version of the novel, which she did in addition to reading this Puffin Graphic Classic version. Not only did this version help her understand the characters, setting, plots and complications of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein"; it also helped her perception of Victor Frankenstein and his relationship to the monster he created.
    This student even participated in class discussions about the novel, something she does infrequently with other texts. So, as a learning aid for students with reading difficulties, this book is GREAT.
    It's not just for the reader with learning differences. This book can be appreciated by everyone who enjoys a classic novel. It captures the essence of Mary Shelley's gothic horror novel. Its illustrations effectively communicate both action and emotion. It follows Shelley's classic without "dumbing it down." It is a marvelous recreation of Shelley's creation.
    Gary Reed and Frazer Irving deserve awards for what they have produced both on the cover and within the book itself. It is remarkable. I recommend it to anyone with an interest in Mary Shelley's work, classic novels, and graphic novels. It is well worth the purchase price and the time spent reading both words and illustrations.
