Frankissstein A Love Story

READ Ý Frankissstein A Love Story Fe form ‘Beware for I am fearless and therefore powerful'What will happen when homo sapiens is no longer the smartest being on the planet Jeanette Winterson shows us how much closer we are to that future than we realise Funny and furious bold and clear sighted Frankissstein is a love story about life itself. Funny deeply humane and uite thought provoking Humans so many good ideas So many failed ideals General storylineCertainly better written than the original in my opinion Jeanette Winterson follows Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley when she writes Frankenstein and mixes this with a reimagining of this tale set in a tomorrow obsessed with AI robotics and immortalityI especially liked the parts relating the story of Mary Shelley and what her inspirations could have been to write Frankenstein She is portrayed as young reflective and slightly socially akward I was never bored except in the company of others The love she has with her husband is also portrayed in beautiful prose When I was pregnant with William he used to get on his knees as I sat on the edge of the bed and hold my stomach in his hands like a rare book he hadn t read Tragedy is however also very much present in her 19th century life with three dead children and a dead husband before her 25th birthday And finally Winterson imagines a thread where her fictional creation seems to come alive and haunts her from Bedlam to a cocktailpartyThe contemporarynear future part centres around Ry Shelley a female to male transgender doctor who is in love with Victor Stein Victor is like a Yuval Noah Harari with grand visions on a transhuman future a succesfull TED talk and an university supported start up to bring this future to the present One of his backers is Ron Lord entrepeneur in sexbots while we also have an evangelical Christian called Claire making an appearance The allusions to the life of Shelley with Lord Byron as inspiration to Ron and Claire being the stepsister of Mary where a bit too gimmicky for me Especially the Ron character uickly moved from funny to a walking stereotype in my opinion and how everyone just happens to meet and know everyone else also strained belief Finally a lot of CAPITALISED sentences made some of the characters feel like giddy teenagersStill we are presented with beautiful imaginery like Ry Shelley who visits a cryogenic storage of frozen heads Or how she offers amputated bodyparts to her lover Victor Stein who casually plays with these in his office while they are bickering In terms of horror I loved how he reanimated these body parts as living hands study objects controlled by electricity working in unison like spiders Language Themes and uotes Only in the living of it does life seem ordinary What I generally liked are the concepts Winterson dove into in this section of the bookWhat it means to be human if we can just be a digital and bodyless mind for instance Or what our relationship with robots should be and if contact with such mindless companions could make people happy than interactions with real humans And the uestion which people we should make immortal and through what means Is Donald Trump getting his brain frozen asks Ron Max explains that the brain has to be fully functioning at clinical death One of the most poignant uestions that came back in this section is apparently a uote from the historical Shelley What is the point of progress if it benefits the few while the many suffer All in all Jeanette Winterson offers a deeply human passionate and warm view on humanity What our future could be taking into account the uirks of our imperfect bodies and above all our heartsRy Shelley says it best The riot in my head is unseen What I am thinking what I am feeling are private Bedlams of my own I manage my own madness just as you do And if my heart is broken it keeps beating
