5.0 von 5 Sternen Is He Alive? 25. Juni 2013
Von Dii - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It isn't easy to take a classic piece like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and write a `continuation' of the story that rings true and completely plausible. Author Pete Planisek has done exactly that with his novel Frankenstein: A Life Beyond ! The mystery of what really happened to Viktor Frankenstein was never actually answered in the original work, the reader was encouraged to assume what happened. Fast forward several years to the life of Edwin Frankenstein, the soul surviving brother of Viktor. He thought he left the horrors of a decade before behind him, but the past rears its ugly head and threatens to destroy both Edwin and his family.

Staying true to the era, the author has created the feel and dialogue that transported me into the past, filling each page with mystery and intrigue in a world that felt dark and ominous. Mr. Planisek was able to re-capture the terror of meeting up with the creature so well, I could almost hear the dark music in the background and was waiting to jump out of my skin at any moment!
For those who swear that nothing could replicate the feel and tone of the original tome, I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how well Frankenstein: A Life Beyond becomes an exemplary extension of the original!

To be able to pull off a continuation story of a classic took some nerve. But I am glad that Mr. Planisek did! I loved this book. I have been coming across alot of these continuation stories and they are just great. I would like to have this in hard cover for my personal library.
5.0 von 5 Sternen NOT A reworking of the classic 12. Juli 2013
Von Cate Agosta - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is not a rewriting of the Mary Shelley classic; it hasn't been twisted around, given a new plot or new characters. This book continues from the point Mary Shelley ended in Frankenstein, and does so in a seamless manner.

I'm probably like most lovers of the classics, when something like this is released, never certain of what is going to appear between the covers. This book will really open your eyes and make you think. It is a compelling and very intelligently written book and it explores some new directions that hadn't occurred to me whilst reading Mary Shelley's work. In many aspects it actually goes as far as to improve upon the ideas the original work ended with.

I have often wondered what happened to the remaining family of Viktor Frankenstein after his (supposed) death in the Arctic; this book explores that question very well, and in depth. In building and developing the characters, the Author did an outstanding job of not straying too far from the original work when it came to their past history. It was apparent that not only had the Author read Mary Shelley's work, he had studied it in depth to make sure his `sequel' was credible and stuck to the basic premise of her original work, grafting it to his own writing but still managing to make his novel very much his own and, very much an original piece of work.

The dialogue is very well written, and stays true and appropriate for the time in which the book is set. It fills each page with mystery and intrigue in an already dark and ominous world that truly transported me into the past. The novel has a good pace, not too slow and not too fast, and there is a lot happening, oh boy is there. Not too much that you become bogged down and lost, but enough to make you want to keep turning the page to continue on with the journey. The end of the book is an opening for the next in this series of 3, but didn't end leaving the reader with more questions than answers, so this could be read as a standalone, however, I defy anyone to be able to do that.

I was very intrigued as to how the Author would portray the first encounter with the `monster', and I was not disappointed at all. Not only the first, but all encounters, live up to that terrifying portrait that was painted in the original; a seemingly insurmountable challenge that the Author overcame with ease. It didn't make me change my original thoughts on the 'monster' at all, only served to strengthen a possibility I had put forward during my 'A' level Literature class.

This is a must read for all lovers of the classics, and anyone who loves a good read with plenty of unforeseen twists and turns. It is an exciting read one which I found very hard to put down and kept me up far later than it should have as I wanted to read to the end. Once at the end, it left me with a need to plunge straight into the other 2 books. Yes, it really is that good, and I wish it had been around when I was doing my English Literature `A' levels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Really good 19. Juni 2013
Von JaimeB - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
You never know what you will get with a continuation story, but this one was really well written. I loved it immensely. Some others I've read were okay, but this one was better than okay.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Continuation 15. Juni 2013
Von Brandy N. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
We've all seen original classic stories twisted with a new plot, new writing style, new characters, and so much more. But what about a novel that continues a classic story that everyone enjoyed without changing anything?

Frankenstein: A Life Beyond does just that.

Planisek does a wonderful job of picking up where Mary Shelley finished. I found the story very intriguing, considering I've never thought of what might have happened after the ending Shelly left us with. But now, I want more.

In this fantastic continuation, Ernest, Victor's brother, gets warning that his brother may still be alive. The plot is done at a great pace as we read about Ernest and his quest to find his family, ultimately getting sucked into the monsters quest.

Planisek does a phenomenal job of depicting "the creature" in the same way Mary Shelley did. I know that must have been a challenge but Panisek pulls it off splendidly.

Overall, this was an exciting read, one that I did not want to put down. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
