« Frankenstein 2.0 »
Editions Didier – A book written by Roger Morris.
In the top left-hand corner, I can see the hand of the creature that is holding Billy’s head.
In the middle, I can see the title of the book in green letters: Frankenstein 2.0.
In the bottom left-hand corner, I can read the name of the author.
The story takes place at the top of the Mont Blanc during the XXIst century.
In the story, there are many characters:
- Victor Frankenstein is Frankenstein Senior’s son. He is the main character and he is the creator of the monster.
- The creature was created by Victor Frankenstein. He is violent and ugly.
- Frankenstein Senior is Victor’s father. He is a brilliant scientist and he has his institute where he preserves the bodies of dead people by freezing them.
- Victor’s mother is dead at the beginning of the story because of the sun.
- Elizabeth is Victor’s friend. She lived with Victor’s family and she loves Victor.
- Billy is Victor’s little brother. He will be killed by the creature.
The story is about the creation of a monster with the remains of the humans. The creation takes place in a laboratory.
The main character, Victor Frankenstein, wished he would create a human being with the remains of other human beings.
Finally, what he gave life to, was a monster. The monster would like to have a female because he was sad to be alone. But Victor didn’t manage to create her. It’s the reason why the monster decided to take his revenge and to kill a part of Victor’s family.
Listen to AD introducing the characters :
I liked reading Frankenstein 2.0 because the end is intelligent and there is suspense. I also loved reading it because I find that this story makes the readers think about the progress of science. Moreover I really enjoyed reading it because the intrigue is ingenious and the story is not too long.
What I didn’t like is that it is complicated to understand and there are too many characters. I also didn’t like reading Frankenstein because it is too bloody.
I wished the creature would be nicer. I wished Victor would take care of his monster because he left him alone. I thought the creature would find another idea to take his revenge.
Listen to MM ‘s opinion :
I’ve chosen this book because the front cover was strange. To the left, we can see a creature holding a dead head and in the bottom right-hand corner there is the creature.
I loved reading Frankenstein 2.0 because I find it interesting and it’s a coherent story. I liked it because the main character is captivating and mysterious. He’s really gifted.
To me, one negative point is the end. It’s disappointing : the characters die one after the other. We don’t know what the creature becomes after Victor’s death.
I wished the characters would be more careful and the main character would take more time to get to know his creature.
I thought Victor would be nicer with his creature and the creature would be less aggressive and bloodthirsty.
