The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein by Peter AckroydWhen two nineteenth-century Oxford students—Victor Frankenstein, a serious researcher, and the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley—form an unlikely friendship, the result is a tour de force that could only come from one of the worlds most accomplished and prolific authors.
This haunting and atmospheric novel opens with a heated discussion, as Shelley challenges the conventionally religious Frankenstein to consider his atheistic notions of creation and life. Afterward, these concepts become an obsession for the young scientist. As Victor begins conducting anatomical experiments to reanimate the dead, he at first uses corpses supplied by the coroner. But these specimens prove imperfect for Victors purposes. Moving his makeshift laboratory to a deserted pottery factory in Limehouse, he makes contact with the Doomsday men—the resurrectionists—whose grisly methods put Frankenstein in great danger as he works feverishly to bring life to the terrifying creature that will bear his name for eternity.
Filled with literary lights of the day such as Bysshe Shelley, Godwin, Lord Byron, and Mary Shelley herself, and penned in period-perfect prose, The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein is sure to become a classic of the twenty-first century.
I, Frankenstein - Final Fight - Ending Scene (HD)
At the center of a plot is conflict : the main struggle between opposing forces. Conflict is introduced in the rising action of a plot line, the climax revolves around the conflict, and the falling action is the eventual resolution of the conflict. It creates the tension, interest, and suspense that keep audiences interested in the story. It compels characters to have dramatic encounters when those opposing forces must interact. The conflict sets the plot in motion, and for that reason, many critics believe that plot cannot exist without conflict.
Is that supposed to get me excited? Truth be told, such a tag line might be effective because, as pointless and shallow as the Underworld films are, they have a devoted following. Sadly, as apt as comparisons to Underworld might seem, I, Frankenstein can't even clear that very low bar. The problem is as much an issue of pacing and tone as it is one of conception. And the absence of Kate Beckinsale in a skin-tight suit coupled with the PG rating might have something to do with it. For a graphic novel-inspired production that should be steeped in an over-the-top aesthetic, I, Frankenstein comes across as a grim slog. It's no fun.

Dr Frankenstein is a brilliant scientist,who is obsessed with the idea of gaining control over life and death, refusing the limits of contemporary science. He carries out his research alone and unaided until he eventually succeeds in bringing to life a monster he has created out of the organs of dead men. However, even Frankenstein is frightened when he sees the fruit of his insane fantasy. The monster escapes from the laboratory and appears some time later in the Swiss Alps, where he is rejected by all the men that he encounters, not so much for his ugliness as for his clearly non-human features. His need to communicate with others is continually frustrated and anger towards all mankind builds up leading to a tragic climax in his killing of Frankenstein's best friend, his little brother and his wife. The monster takes refuge at the North Pole knowing that only there, in a place of total desolation he will kill no more.
