Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...

QUICK NOTE...Update: 6/25/19

Still working through things. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. You'd think we'd be back in our home by now, since the disaster occurred October 2018, but nope. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

The Roving Reader

Mary Shelley's you've never seen it before!
Steampunk version, complete with illustrations from Zdenko Basic and Manuel Sumberac.

So what did you discover when out and about this weekend?
Do tell!

Oh I do think I might need this one! I love the steampunk these days and to blend Frankenstein with it. Hmmm, It could be very good. :D Thank you!

Great cover but I'm still not convinced by the re-telling/writing of these classics generally holding the belief if it ain't broke why fix it.

GMR said...

Melissa: Flipping through, it looked curious...

Juju: My pleasure!

roro: Small reading world after all. ^_^

Petty Witter: Gotcha...I understand, I do; but what if it's not a "fix" per se but simply another way to enjoy the classic? Maybe even bring it to the new generation?

Is it rewritten or are illustrations simply added? I love that cover!
