Though I didn't realize that this was, essentially, YA fiction going in, I kept on just the same even when I found out as the writing was mesmerizing, and some of the more gothically horrible scenes truly made me squirm in place. The narrator did a great job interpreting the mercurial young Victor Frankenstein and his paragon twin, as well as the stern Frankenstein Sr. and dubious alchemist Polidori, giving each a distinct voice and personality. I highly recommend it.

Always enjoy Kenneth Oppel's writing. This was a big surprise and quite different in tone than anything else he's written. The early life of Viktor Frankenstein is explored. One of a pair of twins, Viktor stuggles with jealously and love for his older twin. When Conrad becomes ill, Viktor discovers a secret alchemical library and the recipe for the elixir of life. He, Elizabeth and Henry work with the magician Pollidori to obtain the ingredients to cure his brother. I'm hoping for a sequel, it was that good.
