    Have you ever read a book where you have to keep re reading paragraphs or even entire pages not because your mind drifted and you don't know what you just read but because you do know what you read and it delighted you so much that you simply have to read it again? I haven't come across many writers who do that for me Jeanette Winterson is an exception and Frankissstei

    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 ho
