"A delicious and enticing journey into the origins of a masterpiece."||I 10/15/2012 "Montillo is far from the first author to ponder the real-life influences on Shelley's iconic tale....But Montillo achieves a freshness through her lively narrative approach and a fascination with long-ago science and its ethics that sparks across the pages." - Deborah Blum 02/03/2012
