From Library Journal:

Florescu (emeritus, European history, Boston Coll.) covers very little new material in his examination of the myths behind the creation of Shelley's famous novel. Most chapters rehash extensively studied topics, although "Castle Frankenstein and the Alchemist Dippel" does offer some original ideas about the Frankenstein family. Florescu develops a thesis based on "what ifs" surrounding the infamous summer of 1816 and the Byron-Shelley coterie. Although the work includes images of the Shelley circle as well as an impressive Frankenstein filmography, the comprehensive bibliography of sources is rarely alluded to, enhancing the sense that this work is speculative in nature. Florescu aimed to write something that fell between an academic and a popular study, but this doesn't really work as either. Recommended only for large public libraries and academic libraries in which many undergraduates study Frankenstein.?Kim Woodbridge, "The Scientist," Philadelphia
