In Mary Shelley’s thriller, “Frankenstein”, she sucks the readers into her book by describing the suspenseful events of the life Victor Frankenstein. Mary starts off the book by giving her readers a brief background summary of how Victor was born and how his childhood was growing up. During this stage in the book, she introduces us to Elizabeth, Victor’s adopted sister and future wife. Before leaving off to study at the University of Ingolstadt, Caroline, Victor’s mother, and Elizabeth becomes ill with scarlet fever. Due the illness, his mother passed away. While mourning with the loss of his mother, Victor then continues his studies of reanimation of the deceased to eventually create this monster.

Mary Shelley gives her readers a pretty much boring, but yet informational beginning to her book. After the first couple of chapter, she has all of her readers on the edge of their seats drooling at the mouth to see what happens next.

In this book there are a series of events that lead to different altercations between Victor and his created monster. Due to Victor abandoning the monster, they have a rough relationship which is depicted by Shelley. Shelley ends this book with one of the most insane, yet thrilling endings of all time.
