mandasarah’s #CBR5 Review #2: Such Wicked Intent:The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein by Kenneth Oppel

Once again, Kenneth Oppel is brilliant at creating realistic characters.  Victor Frankenstein is arrogant, reckless, stubborn, and not a little selfish.  But his grief and guilt over his brother are genuine, as are his bravery, loyalty, and endless curiosity.  You can easily see how when Victor stumbles across these mysteries, he’s compelled and driven (by a variety of factors, not all of which are noble) to follow their dark paths as far as he can.  Mr. Oppel paints of clear picture of the type of person Victor is and how his actions will eventually lead to him becoming THE Victor Frankenstein.
