Happy Halloween 2013

What better to read on Hallow's Eve than a story about the dead or rather the dead who came to life again. Yes, I'm talking about Frankenstein. But not Mary Shelley's novel is what I read, but the play based on her novel and adapted for the stage: Nick Dear's Frankenstein (2011).

I saw the play at the National Theatre in London in 2011 - no, not with Benedict Cumberbatch, he was ill that day, but with an equally superb cast. That's when I bought the book and really enjoyed it. So I read it again (a mere 80 pages, perfect for this special evening). Maybe you want to read it for next year's Halloween. And, just maybe the National Theatre will have their DVD released by then, by all means watch that, too :)
