It talks about every aspect of Mary's life. From her date of birth, to her mother's feminist movements, all the way to the impact Frankenstein had on the world. It fully reflects Mary's entire life from every possible aspect, capturing and emphasizing Mary Shelley's most important moments and memories. Personally, I think Janet Harris did a excellent job with this biography. She seized every feature of Mary's waking days. However, If I was to change a few things around, I would give a tad more detail on Frankenstein's importance. She did mention it, but she did not give a elaborate understanding of Frankenstein. I for one, haven't read Frankenstein yet, so a few key references she made went right over my head. If she would have explained them a little more it would have made the book a lot more solid. With all honesty, I am going to give this book a 4 out of 5. I think it deserves it. Although a few things didn't make perfect sense to me, Janet Harris gave a thorough look at Mary Shelley's lifestyle. It was tough to find a flaw or a piece of information that Harris did NOT pick up on. I was very impressed. She took the time to mention every characteristic of Mary's life. If I was Mary Shelley, I would most likely be blown away with the detail that was added in this book. She really hit the nail on the head with this one.
