This Dark Endeavour by Kenneth Oppel
"Adventures do not come more thrilling, gorgeously-written or absorbing than this." -- Amanda Craig The Times 20111030 "I truly can't recommend This Dark Endeavour highly enough. It's a sophisticated novel with a classic feel, it has real drama and tragedy and a morally ambiguous but charismastic character. And the writing is top notch. This book doesn't just appeal to fans of Gothic fiction - it's for anyone who likes a classic read. Don't miss it." www.thebookbag.co.uk "[A] captivating gothic novel for 13+ about the future Dr. Frankenstein and his competitive love for his twin brother. Books this good are for life, not just Christmas." -- Amanda Craig The Times 20111126 "A brilliantly layered exploration of what made Victor Frankenstein become the man he became... Victor's struggle to pit fraternal love against his baser emotions, particularly his animal attraction to their cousin Elizabeth, who loves Konrad, gives a compelling psychological edge to this richly imagined Gothic thriller." -- Dinah Hall The Sudnday Telegraph 20111127 "This is a wonderfully atmospheric story, the sort to get lost in, for 12s and above." -- Philip Womack The Daily Telegraph 20111210ISBN: 9780857560124
