Overall for the first eight chapters I found out that Victor Frankenstein is very self absorbed. I found Victor was very biased in his writing in first person he is always talking about himself. An example of this would be “Learn from me, if not by my precepts, at least by my example, how dangerous is the acquirement of knowledge and how much happier that man is who believes his native town to be the world, than he who aspires to become greater than his nature will allow.” (Shelley, pg 51) This shows he is self absorbed because he is always talking about these great achievements and how he’s better than anybody else. some connections that I made too victor and the book would be, that victor is really similar to Grew in the movie called Despicable me the way they are similar would they Grew wants to be better than any other villain so he gets a shrink ray and steals the moon but as they bring it back to earth the moon starts to grow again and causes major destruction to people and objects. In conclusion both make and do incredible projects to impress everyone else. But Grew and Victor’s plan back fires and cause grief and destruction to them and to people around them. Also from this book I believe that this book is getting the point crossed that things should stay the way they are. As you read you see that Victor takes dead things and makes a monster which causes terror and destruction. Overall the beginning was very well written and it was cool seeing Victors point of view.
