One thought on “The UoD Book Club Podcast, Episode 7: Dr Daniel Cook on ‘Frankenstein’

  1. I’ve just finished reading Frankenstein for the first time, having been inspired by this very interesting podcast.

    I’m now off to hunt down a copy of Mary Shelley’s ‘The Last Man’ (1826), an apocalyptic novel in which she describes a future Earth at the time of the late 21st Century, ravaged by an unknown pandemic which quickly sweeps across the world. Plus ça change!
