This app tells the true story of a group of writers summering in Switzerland and the creative milieu that gave rise to Frankenstein. The story unfolds in real-time, which, combined with a representation of the day to day weather, provides a sense of the atmosphere in which these events transpired. The app also serves as an informative, biographical entry point into the work of the writers depicted, excerpts of which are included alongside historical journal entries and letters. Highly recommended!

While I concede that this app is not for everyone, for those interested in British literature and the romantic period In particular, there's much to enjoy here. I thoroughly enjoyed the opening letter of the voyage by Claire Claremont to Lord Byron. Each day you find out something interesting from one of the people in the party who gathered at Lake Geneva that Summer. This is so original and I hope more apps are like this in the future

This app is simply terrible. There is no tutorial, no content, and nothing to click on or to read. Upon opening the app, there is a splash screen, with nothing to do. I can scroll through various dates, and see an occasional roughly-drawn animation of rain, but that's it. There are some non-clickable maps and head portraits that do nothing and that are not responsive to taps or swipes. There are no instructions. It is very frustrating to tap on random items trying to elicit a response in vain. The app promises a "story" but there is nothing to read. Truly awful. Avoid avoid.

Only a week so far, but the background information on each persona and the period, as well as the superbly chosen extracts from letters, diaries, and manuscripts brings each of these persons to life, and makes you want to know what happens along the way.

This translation of old letters and diaries into a new medium brings them to immediate life. You feel like you’re listening in on conversations that happened 200 years ago, and the shifting maps give a vivid sense of the letters and people moving across Europe.
