Who is the Real Monster?

Recently, I finished reading the classic Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, and it was just as interesting as the first time I read it. From the movies, it always felt that the monster was the monster. After reading it, you realize that that is not the case. The scientist, Victor Frankenstein, is the real monster. The monster, who I have started to called Adam after he read Paradise Lost, is only a monster based on how the others in the Victorian society saw him as. A blind man became Adam’s best friend because he saw who Adam really was instead of the composition of corpses that everyone else saw him as. I, personally would recommend this work, although I do know those who do not like this book. It is that type of book. Either you like it or you don’t.

If you have read this book, tell me what you think. Also, leave book suggestions for me in the comments or scream it at me via Twitter. My handle is @RayaIBoyd. I would love to know what you think.
