I remember awhile back the TV commercials for Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein TV movie. I had thought that I had missed the airing, but Mr. Koontz gives and explanation of what happened in the beginning of this book. I am glad he had the courage to stand up for what he believed in.
Frankenstein, Book One: Prodigal Son is the first in a series of books about a modern Frankenstein’s monster. I appreciate how Mr. Koontz didn’t try to reinvent the Frankenstein story, instead he build upon and brought the story into modern times. Think of it as a long awaited sequel to the original. Frankenstein, Book One: Prodigal Son introduces many characters that I think will be around in the rest of the series, and covers the back-story from then to now. When I think of Frankenstein I think of the classic green, flat-headed monster. That is not the Frankenstein of Dean Koontz; his is more a tormented immortal that is constantly struggling with his inner self and what he was created to be.
I enjoyed this book, moments of suspense, fairly well developed characters, with an interesting and unique story. I look forward to reading the second book of the series.Narrator Review
Scott Brick has narrator many books; this is the first that I have listened to with him as the narrator. I thought Scott Brick was perfect for this story. He led you through an interesting tale with emotion and conviction.
