Reading Corner Friday ~Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Welcome back everyone!!

For this weeks Reading Corner Friday I wanted to share a classic story with you. Assembled from the original text by Mary Shelley. It’s perfect, on top of that you have Gris Grimly’s amazing illustrations to go along with everything. It just puts everything together. This is a book I definitely would want a physical copy of.

Trust me, you won’t regret it.

“Grimly enlivens the prose while retaining its power to both frighten and engage sympathy for the monster-creator Victor Frankenstein. This is a richly morose nightmare of a book, a primer for young readers on the pleasures and dangers of decadent languidness.”—New York Times Book Review

Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein is a twisted, fresh, and utterly original full-length, full-color graphic-novel adaptation of Mary Shelley’s original text, brought to life by acclaimed illustrator Gris Grimly. The first fully illustrated version to use the original 1818 text, this handsome volume is destined to capture the imagination of those new to the story as well as those who know it well.

New York Times bestselling illustrator Gris Grimly has long considered Frankenstein to be one of his chief inspirations. From the bones and flesh of the original, he has cut and

stitched Mary Shelley’s text to his own artwork, creating something entirely new: a stunningly original remix, both classic and contemporary, sinister and seductive, heart-stopping and heartbreaking.
