About book Una Oscura Obsesión (2013)

Well, this book was certainly interesting....and disturbingly entertaining.This Dark Endeavor is a sort-off "retelling/prequel" to the famous Frankenstein. We follow Victor Frankenstein, who's trying to find the elixir of life, a cure for his brother's illness. I really liked the book. It was gripping, had an adventure feel to it, dark and some cringe-worthing scenes. I really liked the story, but the thing that stuck out most to me was the eerie feeling I got from both the setting of the book, but the characters as well. Victor Frankenstein is a interesting character, and he developed a lot through this short book. I loved his motives, and I was really intrigued by some of the dark sides that we got to see from him. His love for his brother and devotion to do anything to save him was really brave. To see his struggles throughout the book was also very interesting.I'm really curious to read the second book, because there were some answers unattended for. I also really want to read Frankenstein as well. If you're in the mood for something dark, gothic and entertaining then you should really pick up this book. It was really good! This book was really interesting. I am quite curious to see where the story goes. I gave it four stars as opposed to five because:1. I totally saw the plot twists (both of them) coming. The second is obvious to anyone who knows the basic plot of Frankenstein. The first is also fairly easy to predict.2. Twin rivalry. Seriously? i mean it was well written but I've been there, done that. 3. Love triangles. I don't hate love triangles, I just hate the fact that EVERY SINGLE YA book has a love triangle. Bella may have started the trend but Twilight was written in 2005. These new YA authors just have to except the fact that their book will probably never make teenagers swoon (gag) as much as Twilight.Overall, I liked this book. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel!Recommended for middle or high school students.

Met K. Oppel in Feb of 2014 and asked about the third book...not happening. So sad!! Loved both!

It was slow-going at first but then picked up halfway through.

Amazing book.
