Thrilling Thursday

See the source imageGood afternoon! I’m hope you’re having a great day! Can you believe it? This is our last blog together! I’m sorry it had to end so quickly. Because this is our last blog, I will try and make this my best one yet! Now on my last blog I talked about the main topic of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. When I wrote my last blog I had heard Victor’s side of the story. Now for this blog I have read the whole book. I now know both sides of the story! Let me just say there are lot’s of things I would like to touch on. But for my final blog I’m going to talk about doppelgangers. Now I have heard theories that Victor and Victor’s monster are doppelgangers, because at the end of the book they are both lonely, miserable, and depressed. Now may I say, I do think that they are alike. Do I think they are doppelgangers? Absolutely not. Throughout this blog I will give you my reasoning and my evidence that victor and his “Monster” are in no way doppelgangers.

To start this topic of let’s look at the definition of a doppelganger. Dictionary.com’s definition of doppelganger is as follows a ghostly double or counterpart of a living person. Now this definition states that doppelganger is basically an identical twin. Now victor is a scientist average height. Now Victor’s monster is taller stronger and he is green. So for starts they don’t even look alike. If you don’t believe me here are some pictures to compare them:

See the source imageAs you can see they do not look alike whatsoever. Now some might say “well they both act the same way! They are both evil!” But they aren’t both evil. I will prove it to you! Starting at chapter one, Victor tells his side of the story. He makes it sound like Victor’s creation was a monster, and that all he was only capable of was killing and destruction. But as the story goes on we hear from Victor’s creation’s point of view. He tells the story of how he was fascinated with humans and life. People hated him and viewed him as a monster. He goes on to say that he never did anything wrong. He was peaceful and cared for others. All that he wanted was to be loved and cared for. But he never got that. That’s why he chose to kill Victor’s brother. He wanted Victor to pay for what he did to him. Victor’s monster could’ve been trained to be good but Victor ran out on him. So it’s not even like they act alike. They are so different in so many ways.

For my last point I want to kind of verge off that topic. I want to talk about my honest opinion on the book Frankenstein. Overall it was an amazing book. I loved how it gives the different perspectives. At first you thought victor was a good guy and trying to do good to the world. But as you work your way through the novel you come to realise that Victor is the villain in this novel. He ran out on something he created. Not only did he do that, he made his family die because he assumed that his creation was only capable of bad things. I also love how it taught an amazing lesson. Not that actions have consequences, but that it’s what is on the inside that matters. Throughout the novel people show hatred towards the monster and the monster feels unloved and thinks badly of himself and that because of his appearance he will never be loved. But in the novel there was one person that actually gave Victor’s creation a chance. This person was De Lacey. He may have been blind but he still let the monster into his home and he stated to the monster “I am blind and cannot judge of your countenance, but there is something in your words which you are sincere.”(Shelley 144). Now this made the monster happy knowing that there was a human who knew that that he was actually good given a chance. Overall Frankenstein was a great book and teaches many valuable lesson.

In conclusion Frankenstein is a great read. It has many topics which can be related to real life scenarios. Also if you didn’t get the hint Victor and the monster are not doppelgangers. They don’t look alike and they don’t act alike! End of conversation… I feel like I’m forgetting something. I stated my topics, added some photos, gave my opinion, what am I missing?

November 27

Frightful Friday!

See the source imageGood afternoon viewers! I can’t believe it, It’s Friday! I’ve been waiting all week for this day to come! I’m going to try and make this blog a little shorter so you can get to your Friday needs, such a playing Fortnite or watching some Stranger Things! So today I want to start by talking about what the main idea of Frankenstein really is. In my personal opinion I think that Marry Shelley,(The author of Frankenstein) is trying to teach the readers a valuable lesson about thinking before you act. Now in the book Frankenstein, Victor tries to play god in a sense that he wants to try and bring a dead body back to life. So Victor collects a bunch of body parts,(known as grave robbing), to form this ultimate human being. What Victor doesn’t realise is that by doing this he is changing the balance in-between life and death. By shocking this “thing” to life, he created a monster. and that monster ends up wrecking havoc. What my point is, is that Victor didn’t think about what he did before he acted. He didn’t think, oh what if it comes back to life but doesn’t listen to me? He probably thought to himself, this is either going to bring him back to life, or leave him motionless. Overall I think the lesson that Mary Shelley is trying to teach us is that our actions do have consequences. We need to think before we act. In summary Mary Shelley taught us an important lesson about thinking before we act and the consequences for not thinking about our actions.

See the source imageOk Frank I’m going to continue with my blog.

See the source imageFRANK GO BYE BYE!

See the source imageWhere was I? Oh yeah the main topic of Frankenstein. Like I explained in my first paragraph I explained how the main topic of Frankenstein was thinking before we act and how our actions have consequences. You may be thinking, how can I relate this to my every day life? I’m sure everyone knows a movie called Home Alone. If not it’s about this boy named Kevin McCalister who was ungrateful for his family. He wished that his family would disappear, and they did in a sense. They left him at home while they went to France on vacation. Now at first Kevin was happy because his wish came true. But then Kevin came to realise that he took his family for granted. After a day or so he got bored and missed his family. Now in a sense Home Alone is like Frankenstein in a way that Victor and Kevin both made mistakes, (Victor’s much worse) and they both had consequences. Kevin had the punishment of not having his family, and Victor had to suffer the consequence of unbearable guilt. Just like we can relate it to our daily life. When we were a kid, if we did something bad we would have to suffer a consequence. Whether it’s sitting in the corner for 5 minutes, or being sent to your room for the night. If our parents didn’t punish us we would just do it again and we would never learn what’s good or bad. Overall Frankenstein can be related to real life circumstance and media texts.

To close my blog I would like to prove my point about the main topic of Frankenstein. In the book Frankenstein, Justine, (Victor’s cousin’s close friend) was accused of murdering her own brother. Victor felt guilty because she didn’t actually kill her brother. It was Victor’s monster that killed Victor’s brother. In the book it states how guilty he felt and the consequences in a sense are the guilt which Victor felt. Victor states, “Justine died, she rested, and I was alive. The blood flowed freely in my veins but a weight of despair and remorse pressed on my heart which nothing could remove.”(Shelley 94). This quote clearly states the guilt Victor felt. Because Victor made that monstrosity he lost his brother and even worse someone else got blamed for the crime they didn’t commit, and died. Although Victor didn’t have to suffer a punishment, he did have to suffer a consequence in a sense of bearing the terrible guilt of in a sense killing 2 innocent people. In summary it states in text that Victor does face consequences for his actions.

In conclusion Frankenstein is a great book so far. It touches on a variety of topics and teaches great lessons. What’s great about Frankenstein is that you can relate it to real life in so many ways. I also love how the book leaves you on edge so you want to read more and more. Although it does start slow, it ramps up and just gets more intense as the book goes on. Overall a great book and I encourage more people to give the book a chance, and to read it twice to get a better understanding about what the book is really about. If you have read Frankenstein what do you think the main topic is?

November 9

Terrifying Tuesday

See the source imageNo automatic alt text available.No automatic alt text available.Image may contain: 1 person, eyeglasses, closeup and outdoorHello Fellow readers. My names Cheeky Monkey, and today’s shockular Tuesday! I hope you are doing well on this fine day! Today I would like to give my thoughts on the romantic elements displayed in the book “Frankenstein”, by Mary Shelley. Now at first when I started reading this book I didn’t think that anything was romantic about it. But as the book progresses it comes clearer that Frankenstein does have many romantic elements. For example, in the book Frankenstein Victor leaves his family to go attend college. While he is in college he doesn’t contact them. They sent him letters but he never read them. When he finally decides to read one he realises that his family is in heartbreak. Ever since Victor left they haven’t been the same. So Victor decides to return home to comfort his family. This scenario touches on the romantic element of the book Frankenstein. This scenario basically shows that even if we hold a grudge on our family we will always love them. Family comes first and through Victor we learn that our family can give us comfort more than any words could. When Victor arrived back home, Elizabeth(Victor’s Cousin), welcomed him home with a warm, teary eyed welcome and stated “Your arrival my dear cousin, fills me with hope.”(Shelley Pg.84.)

As the text states Elizabeth was so relieved that Victor was home. It made her feel loved. When Victor’s family was in heartbreak Victor was there for them and he comforted them. What I’m trying to say is that we can learn from Victor. Sometimes we fight with our family. Sometimes we don’t talk to our family. But in the end we will always love them and we will continue to love them. We should be there for our family when they need us the most. In conclusion love your family. Don’t take it for granted. You never know what you have until it’s gone.

Another element of the book I would like to talk about is the gothic elements of the book Frankenstein. For starters Victor, He’s a crazy lunatic. He has the thought to bring something back to life. Even worse he decides to take a dead animal and try and shock it to life. What kind of maniac tries to bring something back to life using electricity? I think it’s pretty straight forward that when you die you die and that’s it. Mind you all thoughts aside that is the biggest question in today’s generation. What does happen after death.? What happens when we die? Do we just lay there motionless and not able to see or feel anything? Do we go to heaven, or Hell? Do we get reborn, but in a different body, or in a animal? And if we do lay there motionless can we be reborn? Can we be shocked back to life? These are the thoughts that Victor had. He thought that maybe with enough voltage we can feel it and come back to life. It’s not entirely stupid but it’s not entirely smart. By doing this he created a living monster. This is where the gothic element kicks in. Where victor’s creation starts killing things, such as people.

FRANKEN TIME!

See the source imageI’m sorry Frankenstein! But it’s funny!

NO! YOU MAKE FRANK SAD! FRANK GO BYE BYE!

See the source imageOk Frank.

The next and last topic I would like to touch on this blog is my personal review on the book Frankenstein. Overall I think Frankenstein is an ok book. I wouldn’t say it’s the best book in the world. But it’s not that bad. It tells a good story. I think that Frankenstein is ok because it’s amazing to hear the thoughts of a scientist and how he came up with the idea to shock someone to life. Mind you it uses old English which is a bit harder to understand and read. I also love how the author creates a setting that makes it scary wondering, what the monster is going to do next, keeping the reader on edge. What’s mind breaking is that Victor goes to college. At first when reading this book I didn’t think that college was a thing at this current time period. But it’s interesting how today we still go to college and it’s amazing how much we can relate from the book to our current time period. Overall it is a very interesting book and I would highly recommend it to older audiences.

I’m sorry guys but my blog is over. I don’t want to make you read this longer than you have too. I hope you enjoyed today’s blog. I know I did and so did Frank.
