In the second part of the book we learn more about the monster and how he is not being accepted into the humans society just because of his look and his physique. This is a similar scenario on what is going on right now in our world with the formation of Artificial intelligence (AI) and how humans are scared about them taking job opportunities and even taking over the world. Just imagine a 7 foot tall Robot that is smarter than you, bigger than you, faster than you, and even perform feats of strategy and cognition mimicking human ingenuity. Although Robots would have no motive to ever turn against the human race, some of the smartest minds in the world like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk fear that if created would end up overpower, overpopulate and overwhelm the human race and it would lead to our extinction. Now that you can understand the worries humans could have over the AI its easier to understand the concern people could have about the monster. “Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.” Although it is clear to see why humans can have so much fear towards the monster I still cant see why know one would listen too him or give him a chance because he has done absolutely nothing wrong until he is shot for saving a drowning girl. I think that the death of the boy could’ve easily been prevented if the humans didn’t judge the book by its cover.
