Yep, the book really is a bit of a snooze. I don’t think anyone is hanging on every word of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Obviously, I love the character, and I do have a soft spot for the more loquacious creature of the novel… but at times you wish he would just shut up and get on with the mayhem. In fact, I wished for this many times while slogging through the middle chapters.
Kirby needs to get a break from the insanity so he can look around the library. I’m not sure if his heart could stand the number of rare treasures it contains.
