The commentary on humanity in this book is very intriguing, and quite inspiring. Most of the good in this book comes from the fiend. Frankenstein himself does make some good comments, but mostly I consider him a coward and a kind of person who makes bad choice after bad choice.

The wretch, or monster seems to be an amazing creature, with a lot of good to give to the world. We are led to believe that because Frankenstein has shirked his duty as creator, the fiend becomes the monster that Frankenstein already believes him to be... the monster that society created in him because of their aversion to him.
