Have you ever read a book where you have to keep re reading paragraphs or even entire pages not because your mind drifted and you don t know what you just read but because you do know what you read and it delighted you so much that you simply have to read it again I haven t come across many writers who do that for me Jeanette Winterson is an exception and Frankissstein is one of those books Reading this book gave my brain a fantastic jolt on just about every page a flood of dopamine and serotonin repeatedly washed through my brain The sheer exuisiteness of the prose the ingenious metaphors and the philosophical aspects of the story delighted me immenselyThis is the story of Mary Shelley writing Frankenstein It is the story of Ry Shelley a transgender doctor living in the present day It is the story of Lord Byron Ron Lord Dr Polidori Polly D Victor Frankenstein and Victor Stein a scientist developing AI Jeanette Winterson takes us on a journey back to the past and into the future masterfully weaving the stories of all these individuals intertwining their lives and their thoughts and their souls It is profound and it is funny It is philosophical It asks us to reflect on many uestions What is intelligence and what is life Are we our bodies or are we just souls inhabiting physical matter If we upload a human brain into a machine would it be human or would it be machine What if anything sets humans apart from other living beings If we succeed in creating true AI how will it feel about being created to serve us or about living amongst us I mention that Ry is transgender because Ms Winterson uses this story to show that gender is than just the body we inhabit and that we humans are far complex than our genders and any labels that are slapped upon us or even given to us by ourselves Labels are helpful in navigating the world but no person can fully inhabit any category We transcend our labelsRon Lord is perhaps the funniest character I ve come across in a Jeanette Winterson book He is a sexbot salesman misogynistic and unable to accept Ry as he is Claire the counterpart to Mary Shelley s step sister is an evangelical Christian who is at first against the idea of sexbots though later convinces Ron to create and sell bots for Jesus as well Christian companions wink wink for the devout I laughed many times reading the dialogue between these two characters full out feel good belly laughs Ms Winterson throws in a few Trump jabs too which is always appreciated for helping survive the current political madness Fans of Jeanette Winterson lovers of speculative fiction those who delight in word play all will love this newest gem from Jeanette Winterson In my opinion it is her greatest work thus far Many thanks to Jeanette Winterson Grove Press and Edelweiss for providing me with a free digital review copy This in no way influenced my reviewPublication date October 2019

St divorced and living with Mum again is set to make his fortune launching a new generation of sex dolls for lonely men everywhereAcross the Atlantic in Phoenix Arizona a cryogenics facility houses dozens of bodies of men and women who are medically and legally dead but waiting to return to lifeBut the scene is set in 1816 when nineteen year old Mary Shelle. DNF page 209Nothing against the book at all I m just not the right audience for it Also I m unwell at the moment and my tolerance level is much lower than it would usually beA couple of uotes I liked The body can be understood as a life support for the brain Sanity is the thread through the labyrinth of the Minotaur Once cut or unravelled all that lies in wait are gloomy tunnels unfathomable by any map and what hides there is a beast in human form wearing our own face
