This is so sad story. Victor Frankenstein saw a thunder when he was a child. Then he thought how he can use its energy for people. After years, he became a scientist and tried to make a man by using thunder energy and dead man's body. Finalliy, he could do, but at same time he was afraid of the man. So he escaped from him. He didn't notice it is because of begining sad and misery story.
I knew the title of this book, but had never read. I didn't know it is so sad. I want Frankenstein and the monster to become happy. Although I think the monster is so poor, if I met him, I would screamed and escaped. ( )

Dr.Frankenstein wanted to discover the secret of life.
And he made a body and putlife into the body.
I thought it was interesting but too sad story.
The monster was not just evil.
I learnt that we should be ready to love the thing if we gave it life. ( )

This was very sad story.
The creature want the love. But Victor, creater refused and hate him.
But the creature don't have his place, and was hated by many people.
As this creature,Victor was his father.Victor made him.
This story is like a alarm bell to today. ( )

It is the story of a sad monster wandering in search of love.
The monster was loved from nobody because of the figure.
The human being judges a monster from only a figure and attacks it.
The human being who did such a thing was a monster.
I thought this story to be a story of the tragedy not horror. ( )
