I'm a fan of both Jane Austen and Mary Shelley, so imagine my delight when "Pride and Prometheus" was published earlier this winter! I'm not yet tired of literary mashups (though I am chuckling to notice that the publisher is trying to refer to this as a "fusion" book.)
"Pride and Prejudice meets Frankenstein as Mary Bennet falls for the enigmatic Victor Frankenstein and befriends his monstrous Creature in this clever fusion of two popular classics."
I think it's fabulous that the author, John Kessel, chose Mary Bennett as the protagonist - a more interesting choice than the obvious Lizzie Bennett character.
Living in Seattle as I do, there are still many long, rainy days and nights ahead of me before summer comes. I'm looking forward to my next evening spent in front of the fireplace, dogs curled on their beds at my feet, wine glass in one hand, Kindle in the other, exploring this book!
