Pride and Prometheus: 01/04/08
The third story in the January issue brings together Pride an Prejudice an Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus to retell the final third of Mary Shelley's novel from Mary Bennet's understanding of things.
I must admit that I am not a fan of Jane Austen an have never managed to read more than about 50 pages of any of her novels although I have seen a large number of adaptations of her work. I am though a fan of Frankenstein an enjoyed that half of this weird story more than the revisiting of the characters from Pride and Prejudice.
So far Pride and Prometheus is my least favorite story from the January issue. The narrative seems uneven going from deliciously Gothic to dull and book reporty. It could just be me zoning out during the most Austenesque bits. Fans of Jane Austen who are also Mary Shelley fans will get the the most of this story.
