There are some books that I pick up that I cannot put down. The new telling of Frankenstein co-written by Dean Koontz is one of them. It's not the classic Frankenstein story. Instead, it takes the concept of humans creating other humans and brings the concept into the 21st Century, complete with a ruthless villian intent on taking over the world, biological engineering, and questions of race and morality.
I've read the first two books and am eagerly waiting and hoping for the third. If you like compelling horror, don't miss this one.
