Readers’ Comments

‘I personally thought this was the best book in The Wishing Shelf Book Awards. Lovely style of writing, strong cover and a sizzling look at the life of Mary Shelley. It is always so satisfying to understand the mind of an artist and this book helped me to do that. Being a big fan of Frankenstein I particularly enjoyed it.’

– Female reader, aged 62

‘I did not even know Percy Bysshe Shelley was her husband. But
I do now. Interesting and well-researched look at her life. I
particularly enjoyed the complex relationship between her and
her step-sister.’

– Female reader, aged 23

‘A bit slow to get going but, apart from that, a thoroughly absorbing read. It depicts life in the 1800s with clarity and the characters simply jump off the page.’

– Male reader, aged 54

‘I had no idea Shelley was so poor and spent much of her liferunning from debt. Fascinating.’

– Male reader, aged 56
