I’m not a big fan of horror and things like Frankenstein but when I saw this book with the note "Celebrating Frankenstein's 200th Anniversary" and a low price I purchased it.

The story is simple. A geeky scientist named Victor Frankenstein lives with his wife & a misshapen boy, Igor. As a scientist, Victor's work is his devotion. He belongs to a family of ill repute and his work has made him an outcast to his village. His life's goal is to create life. After years of experimenting he succeeds bu

The horror story of a lifetime, Frankenstein has brought chills to readers for centuries and has influenced numerous other spooky stories. So in honor of the original story’s 200th anniversary, why not bring that story to life for the kids (pun intended)?!

Assuming that parents are already vividly aware of the story of Frankenstein and are okay with their kiddos reading this type of content (violence, spooks, etc), then I would say that The Frankenstein Adventures accomplished its goal to recreat

Shelves: middle-grade
My Review: I was sent a complimentary copy of The Frankenstein Adventures by the author, the following is my honest review." When Bil Richardson contacted me regarding this book, I jumped at the opportunity. I am a huge fan of the original work by Mary Shelley and love reading new adaptations. This one is meant for a middle grade audience but I love how it is written to appeal to that audience, especially reluctant readers, but it is still very enjoyable as an adult. If you are looking for a clo ...more

The blurb is slightly misleading, and while there is truth that Igor does set out the save his master’s creation, the story is not entirely his as the third person perspective offers insight into many different characters, new and old. While it is a retelling of the traditional Frankenstein story, Richardson takes it further and it becomes a story about family, friendship, and discovering the monsters of the world are not the most obvious.

The writing is straightforward but weave a detailed and i

The story of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster is well known, and has been adapted in many different ways since it was published 200 years ago. Bil Richardson has now written a new take on that story, one aimed more towards middle schoolers, which is almost as entertaining as the original. Victor Frankenstein, along with his trusted sidekick Igor, are wanting to make life. They have a stitched together body, but they need a brain. Igor will do anything to help his beloved master, and friend, incl ...more

Remarkable remake

Richardson pens a wonderfully humorous story in The Frankenstein Adventures. The age old Frankenstein monster story is brought back, but this time, for young children (or young at heart as well). I enjoyed this story, and I like how it was written from Igor's point of view. It is not a revamped Frankenstein story, but there are pieces that are pulled from the original story, and brought into a twisty and interesting story, while bringing the reader on a wondrous journey. There i

It's my book so I can't really review it but if you're looking for a funny, action packed story that you will love just as much as your child then give this a try. This is a perfect bonding experience that will bring you closer and have you both hurrying to turn the next page. Or if you're looking for something to get your kid to fall in love with reading all over again then this might be just the ticket.

I wrote this book because I became the stepfather of a son who didn't like to read. As a wr
