Started off a little dry with the early history of galvanism and dissections, but somewhere around Chapter 3 or 4 the pace picked up and my interest was fully engaged. I most appreciated the context I now have for Shelley's Frankenstein, and Montillo's theories rounded out the book as one cohesive narrative.
