Although Victor didn’t finish his second creation, I think that if he had completed it the book would have a different outcome. I think that if Victor had finished making the second creation it would have had both a positive and negative turn to the story. I can’t definitively say what would happen if he had finished the creation but I feel that there would be benefits and downfalls as a result. 


(What the second creation might have looked like if completed^^^)

I think that if Victor would have finished his second creation he would have kept his word and the monster wouldn’t have got so mad causing him to kill more people. I also think that if Victor would have finished the second creation the Monster would have had someone like him and the monster wouldn’t feel left out. Most of the people the monster killed were because he was enraged and there was no one there for him meaning no one to calm him down. I feel that if he had another person like him then he would have been occupied by that person and he might not have killed everyone (William, Elizabeth, and Henry)

I feel that if Victor finished his second creation than it could have turned out negatively. I think that if Victor completed it the two creations could make more or them and could turn into a whole race of monsters and possibly go on a killing spree. I also think that if he completed the second creation the towns people would probably be more scared of living in the town near these monsters because their is more. 

Overall I think that it was a good idea that Victor destroyed the second creation because there is no way of telling what would have happened if he carried through on creating the second monster, there isn’t a very good outcome if he continued it, the best thing that would happen is the monsters would go away and never be seen again but the worst thing that could happen is the new monster would be just like the original monster and they would go on a giant killing spree killing anyone who looks at them the wrong way or reminds them of Victor as well as it might be possible for them to reproduce more monsters and take over mankind. 


Studies show that the majority of people who are bad (in prison) return to prison after being let out, proving that in most cases people don’t change. 76% of people return to prison within 5 years of being let out for carrying out more crimes when given a second chance, so the odds are that the original monster would fall back into the same path of killing people, just like many people freed from prison do as well. Prison returnees are similar to the monster because they are both bad people/things so they are similar scenarios which means they will most likely have similar outcomes of still being bad after getting a second chance.
