so whille viktor advances his studies at college he learns how to reanimate the dead and begins to work on an 8ft monster put together with diffrent body parts.
viktor finally finishes but is not pleased with his monster he is actually scared of it. the monster runs away and is no where to be found viktor then becomes very ill but with the help of his dear friend henry he gets better and plans to go see his family.

the monster tells of the very first things that happen then he says he found a cottage and stayed in the shed while he observed a family and learned basic things. the man of the family was blind so he thought he could talk to him and be accepted so he waits for the rest of the family to leave and talks to the old man but when the family comes back they beat frankenstien and then he runs away and the family moves.
after this the monster swears revenge against all humans especially his creator. he then travels to geneva and runs acros a girl drowning he saves her but then her father shoots at him. he then runs across william frankenstein and thinks hey this is a young child he will accept me but quite the contrary when the child mentions frankenstein the monster flips out and kills him he then takes his necklace off and plants it on justine.
