This was another book that I was skeptical to get in to, due to some negative reviews. But once again I was eager to give it a shot and was glad that I did. This was only the second book that I have read that is written in verse. I have to admit that at first it was hard for me to get into the story as I was adapting to the writing style, but once I got through the first 50 pages or so. But once the story took off, I have to admit I was hooked.
I don't think that this book could have had a better title, because there is no way to describe this beautifully
gothic story, but to call it "Hideous Love." Everything about the love story behind Mary and Shelley is absolutely heart breaking. From how they met, to the lengths they had to go to be together, to their married life, up to the end. Yes, it does mention how Mary came up with the idea of Frankenstein,and the what she had to over come to get the story published, but what really registered with me was the love story and all the emotions I felt while reading this story.
