Reviews

  • "A riotous reimagining with an energy and passion all of its own that reanimates Frankenstein as a cautionary tale for a contemporary moment dominated by debates about Brexit, gender, artificial intelligence and medical experimentation… While the story has a gripping momentum of its own, it also fizzes with ideas."

    Daisy Hay, Financial Times
  • "Here, hard science and dreamy Romanticism exist in both tension and harmonyFrankissstein abounds with invention… this is a work of both pleasure and profundity, robustly and skilfully structured, and suffused with all Winterson’s usual preoccupations – gender, language, sexuality, the limits of individual liberty and the life of ideas."

    Sam Byers, Guardian, *Book of the Week*
  • "A modern take on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, it’s a fascinating and engrossing look at AI, science, gender fluidity and, ultimately, what it really means to be human."

    Nicola Sturgeon, New Statesman, *Books of the Year*
