This is one of the two Bingo books I haven't started yet. The other one is shorter and the square already called so I will probably start it first. Some of my longer books are probably not going to get finished by the end of the month.

Do you have a back-up book if The Last Man does not work out? I found this book seriously grim and depressing.

I would probably soldier through. My curiosity about what else the author has written is strong enough.

Did you read the original 1818 text or the one published several years later with a million additions and changes?

Which one is on Gutenberg? That's what I have.

They have 3 copies. I don't know which one you read. It should have publication date in the front though?

Eh, ... Elentarri, could it be that you are referring to Frankenstein?
The Last Man was not written until 1824, and not published until 1826...and then not re-published until the 1960s.
