    Hi Jamie-Lee!

    I love your quiz! This helps me to study for the exam because it reminds me of important elements about the novel. I think that the monster is vengeful, but that this feeling is engendered by all the rejections he encountered over his life. I believe he was born like this and that he could have been a very nice person if the society had accepted him.

    Keep up with the good work!

      I’m glad if this post helped you study for the exam ! Indeed, the monster was a really good man before getting hurt several times by the society. Did you know that he was rejected 7 times in the novel. After each rejection he still had hope to find one person who would accept him .. Until he lost hope in humanity.
      It is an heartbreaking story!

      Thanks for your comment Myriam 🙂
