    • It’s well worth checking out! I’ve also read Mathilda, a suitably gothic and tragic novella. I’ve got my eye on The Last Man or another of her short story collections next 📚👀

  1. Great review! I’ve only read Frankenstein so far from Mary Shelley’s oeuvre, but considering how strong a favorite that novel was it seems absurd not to read further. This sounds like a great next step!

    • lol, it’s certainly safe to say its legacy has somewhat outshone her other books! Mathilda (which I’ve read) and The Last Man (which I haven’t) seem to have gained a little traction, but nothing close to Frankenstein, of course. I’m glad these stories have been reissued in a new edition though; it’ll hopefully introduce more people to some of her other work!

      Ooh, I’ll keep an eye out for your thoughts on that! I’d like to read some of her mother’s work as well. They were both utterly fascinating women.
