iFrankenstein - Bekka Black Utilizing cell phone texts, emails, and chat messages, iFrankenstein by Bekka Black is about Victor Frankenstein, a computer genius who forsakes reality and prefers to live his life in the cyber world. He’s obsessed with inventing an internet chat bot cloned after himself for the prestigious Turing Award. While Victor’s father is on an overseas cruise on the S.S. Walton, chronicling the last voyage of the famous ship for the National Geographic, Victor spends all his time locked in his cabin, trying to bring his chat box – Virtual Victor (V.V.) – to life. Nothing deters Victor from his goal, not even his friends, Elizabeth Lavenza, (who is also on the same cruise) or Henry Clerval, a fellow computer genius who keeps in close touch with Victor.Elizabeth and Henry both try to coax Victor off his computer and see the sights Europe has to offer, but Victor opts instead to complete his goal at hand. Giving V.V. all of his online identity and cloning the program after his genius self, it comes to no surprise that V.V. quickly becomes so much more than what he was intended to be.At first, Victor is ecstatic, but when V.V. becomes ‘aware’ and starts hacking into the CIA database, and making demands from Victor, the computer genius begins a race against time to unmake the creation he unleashed into the world before the people he cares the most about end up getting hurt. Will Victor be able to stop his creation, or will V.V. overcome his maker?Personal Thoughts:Once again, Bekka Black delivers a compelling and entertaining story told through the use of cell phone texts, emails, and chat messages. I really enjoyed the visual aspect of the book as well as the new take on the Frankenstein story.The story was fresh and always kept me guessing. I couldn’t put the book down, and I am definitely hooked on Bekka Black! Can’t wait to see what else she comes up with next. http://readourlipsblog.blogspot.com/2012/10/review-ifrankenstein-by-bekka-black.html#more
