Frankenstein! The Monster

We have just started a new novel in my APEL (AP English Literature) class, and its Frankenstein! I am so excited for this novel, due to this book being one of the first mix between science fiction and horror. Now, since the creation of Frankenstein the novel readers and critics always reference it as an amazing book. Due to its popularity, people have even made scary urban legends about Frankenstein’s Creature. They even made facts just in case you meet Frankenstein’s creature, since it won’t die of old age and last time it was seen was when it left. Here is what most say:
Frankenstein’s Monster
Unbelievably Tall
Impervious to gunshot damage
As long as you don’t try to hurt it, it will leave you alone
Wound with fire
Last scene leaving Frankenstein’s Castle

The total amount of influence one book from the 1800s gave birth to an urban legend. It shows how much the influence of books and our minds can lead to new thrills and monsters. I can’t wait to actually read the novel and see how the actual monster stacks up to its legend.
