really liked it

This was fascinating to me. I must say there was much I did not know about Mary W. Shelley, author of Frankenstein, her life's challenges, and her intimates--Godwin (her father), Shelley(husband), and even Lord Byron (dear friend). Seriously scandalous stuff, and yet pathetic. I know I'll never look at Percy Shelley the same way again, but I loved what I learned of Mary Shelley; she had an amazing strength and talent. She lived a lifetime in her first 26 years and changed the world forever with her most famous and first novel, written when she was a teenager.
