I felt torn about this prequel to Frankenstein. Oppel writes with a slow pace that builds up to some pretty intense action. And his teen version of Victor Frankenstein is charming, yet darkly conflicted. But the ending is a downer and felt a bit open-ended. Maybe we're supposed to read the original?
