Feeling at beginning Vs. Feeling during end
The main feeling I had during the beginning of the book was empathy for the monster. I felt bad that he was created for all the wrong reasons. Victor created him solely as an experiment and had no intentions or idea on what he would do after he created a living person. I also felt bad that he didn’t have a mate to share his life with. The monster had to live his life with no one else like him. He had to spend it alone and without love. The monster was also not intelligent. He was never taught how to read and write. He had no family that could show him what love was. He just wanted to be destroyed because of how bad his life was. I was also felt badly for Dr. Frankenstein. He was so smart that he created a monster that did him no good. He abandoned him. At the end of the book I felt really terrible for Frankenstein. He lost everyone that he loved because of a monster he shouldn’t have created in the first place. The monster went crazy and killed everyone that he knew was close to his creator. I felt bad for Victor because he lost everyone, but deep down I knew it was all his fault. He could’ve prevented all the bad things the monster did in many ways. He could’ve raised it and taught it like a parent, he could’ve made the monster a mate, or he could’ve just not created the monster in the first place.
Who tells the story?
Dr. Frankenstein narrates the story in which he is the main character. He is also the person who created this monster and caused all the horrible things to happen. Dr. Frankenstein was a genius who created a human being. He was too smart for his own good though and created a monster that later ruins his life. He narrates and tells the story on a ship to a bunch of people who see him being exhausted while chasing after the monster he made. The way he tells the story affects the way that the audience views the story. He tells the story in a way that shows how people should be sympathetic to him and not to the monster that he knowingly created. Us as the audience feel bad for him that his whole family was murdered and he is now alone without anyone. At the end of telling the story Victor dies and the monster lives on. The story would have been better I think if the monster and the doctor told the story. We then would have been able to see both
