New Release Review: Pride and Prometheus

Title: Pride and Prometheus
Author: John Kessel
Genre: Science Fiction, Romance
Page Count: 400
Publisher: Baen Books
Type of Book: Hardback, library loan, New Release
Review Word Count:
Rated: 3.9/5 stars
Notes: huh?

This was a strange book. On the one hand, I really liked it’s originality and I loved Mary’s character. But on the other hand, it definitely isn’t going to be one of my favorites. I liked the pride and prejudice combination with the Frankenstein monster romance. It was certainly a unique twisted idea, and I think it’s the twisted part that I didn’t care for. It was a bit…dark…for my tastes, I think. I also don’t like that time period, with how women are treated as a whole. As if women don’t matter except to further the family line.

I had to do a re-read of the book to see where I stand on this book, and I think it’s safe to say it deserves a bit more than three stars, but not by much. The hype of the book is definitely deserved, but…well, all I can say is that this book just wasn’t for me.

I will recommend it to those who want something outside of the box, and give this book 3.9/5 stars!

Until next time,
-Pass Me That Book.
