Dean Koontz's Frankenstein

Fresh from under the Christmas tree comes this happy tale: Mr. Koontz's (and co-writer's) reimagination of the Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley yarn. I'm pretty excited about this one. Frankenstein (or to be ticky tacky about it, Frankenstein's monster) is pretty cool, and you can't beat stories about grave-robbing mad scientists. Nevertheless, the original book was only okay. Older horror is often a little slow for my taste. I won't repeat the criticism of one Amazon reviewer, thought, who actually seemed upset that the original monster wasn't a grunting beast like in the first movie version. A review will follow.
