I really like the character of Victor because even though he is complicated, he is relatable. It reminded me of a time when I did something bad and I let my older brother take the blame and punishment. After I saw that it was unfair I felt guilty.

Conclusion

I want to know what will happen to Elizabeth because right now she is everything to Victor. So I want to see if eventually his selfishness will cause him to lose her like he lost the rest of his family or if he will try to do something to help her and himself. Right now what makes me really angry is Victor, I feel like everything in his life was so simply and he had to make everything so difficult. I really like the passage in where Victor goes to ponder. I feel like nature plays a role of peace for him and it is the only thing which is pure in his life. The nature also adds a lot of the romantic aspect to the novel. ...read more.
