The last chapters of true story were the best in my opinion, but why is everyone so quick to judge the monster. It really just reminds me of stories about kids getting bullied, the monster looks different, acts different, is just different in general. The other normal people look at him like he’s dangerous and Insane because of his size and strength but when it actually comes down to it the monster didn’t have bad intentions until the end he was able to confess his sins and apologize for them. The only reason he came back to kill victor and his friends / family is to get revenge on victor for breaking a promise to make someone else like the monster so atleast one person didn’t exclude him. Anger took over and he reacted in a violent way because he watched victor violently destroy his future wife the only other person like himself.

 I believe the monster truly just wanted to be not looked at different, it’s a perfect example of someone with a disease like Down syndrome or autism, sometimes they can look a bit different or act a bit different then us but in the end there some of the nicest people and just want to be accepted just like everyone else. The monster didn’t know how to react he didn’t know any other way then violence. 

    On a separate note that’s exactly why genetic modification should never actually happen just like in Jurassic park they genetically changed and created new species of dinosaurs because they had the technology and it ended up getting out of control completely just like this situation. Genetic modification is something even if we have the technology to do we shouldn’t because of reasons exactly like this whole story. To many problems to be caused between society. 

   Lastly i’m sort of iffy on the schizophrenia idea because if other real people are dying then it could be just a really bad trip but in this situation I think it was just reality of creating a monster. At first I was convinced victor was just in a state of mind where his schizophrenia was being enhanced and the more scared he got of the monster the worse his symptoms got because it seemed as the story went on he was more frightened of the monster. 

   Overall I thought the book was really interesting and enjoyable, definitely recommended for people of all ages.

These more in the middle chapters were much more interesting in Frankenstein, it made me think a lot about something i recently was learning about in science class which was genetic modification. Frankenstein is a genetically modified human formed into something else, a “monster” in the books terms. Science today and in fiction back then as well has the material and knowledge to not so much create a monster but genetically modify a person and a story like this makes me think, even if we can do it, should we ? Clearly it doesn’t work out to well in this scenario. I remember in biology we talked about everything that would form the monster, from why his hair is the colour it is to what type of personality traits he has. The whole scenario comparing the two was actually very interesting.

I still haven’t completely ignored the schizophrenic theory, it keeps making more sense in some parts. For example victor visits the monster in a open cave, listening to the monster, which could be compared to the “voices” describe the events of his life so far. Victor believes the monster is evil but in the story the monster stays quite calm while being verbally attacked by victor and proves to have the elegance and respect a human can have and/or show.

The beginning of Frankenstein was quite enjoyable but at the same time kind of plain an boring in my opinion, maybe just because it’s old fashion. I have a hunch though, a hidden story if you will. I think victor wasn’t in the right state of mind, he was smart yes, but I think he had another thing going on, I believe he had schizophrenia. I learned a lot about schizophrenia in my mental health unit during my English class, and i have a theory that victor creating this monster, was actually just a schizophrenic symptom at its peak. He was working all day everyday continuously stressing himself out about his studies. At the time they probably wouldn’t have the knowledge to know it but heavy stress can really effect your brain and if you grew up with slight schizophrenia then grow up to be continuously stressed it could enhance the schizophrenic symptoms, dangerously. Victor apparently created this new life form that murders his brother back home miles away. It sounds a bit unreasonable, it sounds like a major hallucination. I researched a lot about the disease and he could have it his whole life and no one else would of known about it because during that time period they weren’t very medically intelligent. They wouldn’t of been able to diagnose it or possibly even know what it was. Especially if the case was minor until it was enhanced by increasing levels of stress.

Where did his idea of creating a non human monster come from? That’s not a normal goal in life is to create a monsterous creature from the dead through electricity. Once again, I believe it was never a goal, it was a symtom of his disease.
