There is a journal, an old one, where the fervid Doctor Viktor Frankenstein dutifully noted the steps of creating his greatest work. There are some newer notes scrawled haphazardly along the pages, added at the end of his life on his deathbed. He encoded some sort of a message for his loyal mad assistant, Ygor. I hope it's the keyword; If it is, I can perform the procedure and save people from the horror that's about to come.

I know, it sounds crazy, I do. But I've SEEN him. Yesterday, deep in the woods. A horrible, deformed shape. Gurgling, digging up old, long forgotten graves. I am terrified. Please, I need your help. I’ve tried so hard to understand the keyword but no matter what I try I just can’t seem to grasp it and we’re running out of time! I'm sending YOU the journal. I hope you can decipher the messages in my place. Otherwise... we might be looking at an unstoppable army of the dead...

With all of The Panic Room's puzzle books, I recommend pulling the pages out and cutting them up where directed, rather than trying to preserve the book intact; with Frankenstein's book it was immediately clear that that was the only way to approach it. The puzzles might have been solvable without using scissors, but given the theme it would be just wrong to play without getting into the physical construction.

We had a bit of a love/hate relationship with this game. The idea is great, but we struggled on a few puzzles. Either way, if we’re going away for a break sometime, I could see us taking a couple puzzle books with us.
