Frankenstein By Mary Shelley

Previous to reading Frankenstein my only knowledge of the tale was crafted through common knowledge and the black and white film I still have on DVD; I was presently surprised at the lessons and the depth of the book.

Despite the book being hundreds of year old I found it transcended time with the adventure and suspense that carries the tale. It starts of with victor Frankenstein being a young boy and eager to learn, especially in the field of science. Victor is curious and is fascinated by nature and life itself. Unfortunately as we all realise his curiosity and ambition only twists his life into turmoil. The monster that he created is at first, although still visibly terrifying, is seemingly innocent at heart but we soon find out his isolation and lack of human connection turns him into a monster.

There is clearly an underlying set of morals imbedded in the story, including science having some answers but not all, the importance of human connection etc. This Gothic Horror is both disturbing and beautiful. I’m in love with the mesmirising scenery of Switzerland. The though of Frankenstein’s creation on a sled travelling through rough ice terrain was a fascinating one for me and I don’t think I’ll ever erase it from my mind.

Animal Farm, by George Orwell
That is my message to you, comrades: Rebellion! I do not know when that Rebellion will come, it might be in a week or in a hundred years, but I know, as surely as I see this straw beneath my feet, that sooner or later justice will be done. Fix your eyes on that, comrades, throughout the short remainder of your lives!

Finally finished chapter 20.

It took me a while, not because it was bad but because life reasons that stopped me from reading for about two weeks.

Anyway, I finally got my question about if they could use their powers while on a boat in the ocean answered. The answer is yes, yes they can. Destructively so.

This little island life is cute, but I have a feeling it won’t last long. I’m mostly worried about the baby. If Alabaster is the guy in the prologue then I can’t imagine a happy future for the baby. He’ll either die from an attack by the guardians or is taken, raised in one of the worst places in their world. No matter which one, I’m not looking forward to it.
