The finished draft of a short novel by Mary Shelley. Its adult theme, concerning a father's incestuous love for his daughter and its consequences, meant that the manuscript was suppressed by Shelley's own father, and not published until 1959, more than a hundred years after her death.

I'm not sure what to say. loved the melodramatic emotional yet melancholy feel. nevertheless the overall theme left me very repulsed. why had Matilda herself, upon hearing her father's sick words, yet pursue him? it is clear even for in which the time it was set the subject was scorned and taboo. both herself and her father who suffered tremendous anguish and despair are certainly mentally ill. if the father were to have been replaced by a childhood playmate who then perished in any multitude of circumstances and left her alone to her own grievances I would have given this 10 out of 5 stars. it is just so elegantly written. such a beautiful work but yet maybe too adult for my tastes. to the reader great job very smooth

I want to hate it, but I can't!

The content is super creepy, but the writing is beautiful! The personal voice of Mathilda is beautiful.

A HUGE Bravo-- To Cori Samuel for the mesmerizing reading that you gave this spellbinding story. Shelley + spooky story + Cori Samuel = Masterpiece Hands down the most enthralling reading of a story I've ever heard!!

Good but overlong

Astonishing topic, especially for the time. However it is excessively wordy and repetitive. Written in an almost poetic style, it is deeply indulgent, teenager-level angst, grief, overthinking and soaring romantic delight. I persisted because of the topic and the wonderful reading.

An emotional struggle.

In truth I found that my interest waned a little over half way through. As always excellently read by Cori, thank you.

Mary Shelley was so far ahead of her time! The story is scandalous, and heartbreaking. The reader has an amazing voice.

Every single sentence was that of poetry.. Excellent. The voice of the reader made it far past realism
