who is this sex fiend?

I think her husband was a great poet laureate. isnt it weird that she never wrote anything before shitting out an entire novel suddenly when he had a long and illustrious career?

Everybody thought it was Percy who wrote it as well, but I guess if they it wasnt written by him it wouldnt have sold any copies. Besides, what is ro actually gain from lying about writing a book?

>>7685828
I liked her book.

Frankenstein's pretty gud for a nineteen year old, I guess.
>>
Are her other books worth reading?

Not really. The Last Man is somewhat interesting, but the concept is better than the execution. The rest are completely forgettable.

However, she led a very interesting life, and it's fun to read about her, her family, and her social circle (and even more fun to read about the rest of Byron's friends).

Her journal is worth reading if you want to know more about her, but her novels, aside from Frankenstein, are basically wastes of time.

Meh, would fug only because she wrote something cool and can introduce me to other artists.

Frankenstein is a good read if you have an interest in European history, especially the French Revolution. Otherwise it's somewhat mediocre.
