“Frankenstein comes to life for the wired generation.
Following her critically-acclaimed iDrakula, award-winning author Bekka Black breathes life into a modern re-telling of iFrankenstein, using only text messages, web browsers, tweets, and emails.
Homeschooled teenager Victor Frankenstein is determined to write his own ticket to independence: a chatbot to win the prestigious Turing prize and admission to the high tech university of his choice. He codes his creation with a self-extending version of his own online personality and unleashes it upon the internet. But soon he begins to suspect his virtual clone may have developed its own goals, and they are not aligned with Victor’s. The creature has its own plan, fed by a growing desire to win darker and more precious prizes: unfettered power and release from loneliness.
As the creature’s power and sentience grows and its increasingly terrible deeds bleed over from the online world into the real one, Victor must stop his creation before his friends and humanity pay the ultimate price.”
After reading, iDracula, I knew this book I had to read. If you love a good progressive story, entirely in emails, text, chats.
I loved that this book is so easy to get into. All text, chats, emails are short yet filled with so much info. All information flows well, guiding the reader to a fast paced plot. I like that the plot of Frankenstein is so different yet up to date with modern times. I was anxious to see what exactly the Frankenstein will be, so when it came up, I thought it was clever and impressive.
There is a love interest that starts off as first of a friendship. I like that their love is developing in front of the reader. Of course, it always takes the guy longer to find out that he is in love with his girl…guys SMH!
Still, their love forms slowly and allows the reader to enjoy seeing them come together.
iFrankenstein is great fast-paced story that is so easy to read and get into. Once in the story, the unique modern twist of Frankenstein lures the reader deeper into the story. iFrankentein is all the rave when it comes to a plot that does not falter. iFrankenstein is great!
I give it 4 BITES!
