    Rebuilding Frankenstein

    | New England, USA | Uncategorized

    Customer: “Can you help me find to “Frankenstein” trilogy by James Patterson?”

    Me: “Sir, I think maybe you mean Dean Koontz.”

    Customer: “No. Patterson wrote it.”

    Me: “OK, one moment, let me get that for you.”

    (I return with the first book of Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein trilogy).)

    Me: “Is this what you wanted?”

    Customer: “Yeah. That’s the one. I need the fourth book in the trilogy.”

    Me: “I believe there are only three books in the trilogy.”

    Customer: “No, I read online. There are four.”

    Me: “Alright. One minute, please.”

    (I return with the third book in the trilogy.)

    Me: “Is this what you needed?”

    Customer: “Yeah. That’s it. Have you read these?”

    Me: “Yes I have. I thought they were a wonderful re-imagining of Mary Shelley. I really enjoyed Koontz’s ideas about the monster.”

    Customer: “Yeah but he didn’t even put Frankenstein in the books. Just some scientist guy. What kind of a name is Victor anyway?”
