Okay so this past little bit I have been reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and well I just finished the book. Not the greatest ending but I guess we will get into that a bit later in the blog.
Okay so this time lets get deeper in the story. So, remember Creach from last story well okay let’s bring him back. Victor is telling the story again about Creach and him wow seems a little less selfish. Anyways Creach is trying to convince Victor to create him a mate and create him a friend so he isn’t lonely. Creach is telling Victor he isn’t giving him much of a choice here, but he is a 12-foot-tall monster, so I mean yea I don’t think I’d want to cross him. Here is a quote from the book showing how this conversation took off. “The being finished speaking and fixed his looks upon me in the expectation of a reply. But I was bewildered, perplexed, and unable to arrange my ideas sufficiently to understand the full extent of his proposition. He continued ‘You must create a female for me with whom I can live in the interchange of sympathies necessary for my being. This you alone can do, and I demand it of you as a right which you must not refuse to concede'”(Shelley 156). Basically, this creature wants to get hitched! Okay so you know how Satan was still loved when he was created well the creature is now visualizing himself as Satan. He is asking why he isn’t loved and asking Victor his “father” to help him not to hate and to banish the evil because he wants to be good. He is saying that everyone has a choice to be good and he is choosing to be good. He is questioning what makes a human “human”, so he can become as human as possible.
Well let’s talk secrecy because I swear that is what Victor Frankenstein swears by. He one just up and leaves Elizabeth when he was going to MARRY her what kind of guy does that, that was the stupidest thing he could have done in his life. He ditches Elizabeth for England I didn’t know protecting your own butt was more important than protecting your family. What kind of guy is Victor? That is just selfish and ignorant and arrogant, and he should put other people first he is going to have the worst life possible. He doesn’t explain why he ditched Elizabeth and why he left his family. He is keeping a secret of why he went and heads up he is being selfish with this secret he isn’t telling them about the monster because Creach swears that until he is happy Victor will not be happy so Creach is going to kill Victors family just to prove he was serious. Victor doesn’t do anything to protect them he just leaves.
Victor thinks that making the second monster for Creach will be selling his soul. He finally after a while decides to create the second monster so that Creach will leave him alone. He is tired of always being scared so he tells Creach he is going to make another monster and promises Creach that he will. I don’t think that was such a good idea though what if something tragic were to happen and that kills Victor then Creach won’t have a mate and will probably go on a killing spree. Well I guess my suspicions were right well in a way. Victor backs out of his promise and Creach is mad and I mean mad! Victor made the stupidest choice of all time. So fast forward a bit Victor decides to bring Elizabeth into it all he decides to marry her but Creach told him he would be there on his wedding night. Victor eventually leaves Geneva with a few of his mother’s jewels. He tries to hide from the creature and is trying to deny his fate and trying to change it by running away. I don’t understand why he would attempt that I mean its a monster.
Fast forward to the end: Victor is found by the monster and it’s time to meet his fate. Crap forgot to say this is a huge spoiler!!! The creature has final words to Victor Frankenstein which are, “Farewell! I leave you and in you the last of humankind whom these eyes will ever behold. Farewell Frankenstein! If thou were yet alive and yet cherished a desire of revenge against me, it would be better satiated in my life than in my destruction” (Shelley 241). That to me seems like a pretty good sort of ending even though Mary Shelley left the book on the biggest cliff hanger I could have ever imagined. Well I guess that is going to be all for this book. Goodbye!
