About Frankenstein’s monster

The story was placed in Europe. A young man who loved science went to England to study. After some time of researching, he discovered the mystery of human body and created a strange being, an ugly monster. Frankenstein was very shocked by the ugly shape of the monster, so he left the monster with hate. Since then, the monster faced a world full of hate and fear. He couldn’t bear the heavy pressure of being a strange creature. He then made up his mind to pay back on his creator, Frankenstein. He covered a long distance to Frankenstein’s hometown, and met the little brother of Frankenstein by accident. He killed the boy. As soon as Frankenstein heard the bad news, Frankenstein went back home. Later he met the real murderer, the monster, and he hated the monster more. The monster asked him to make the monster a wife, so that the monster wouldn’t harm Frankenstein’s family anymore.


Frankenstein agreed and started working. But he soon regretted. He broke his promise. Soon, he suffered the pain of losing his best friend, Henry, and his fiancée, Elizabeth. He decided to kill the monster then die himself. It was not easy to follow the monster’s step. The monster moved so quickly to the North Pole but the cold weather there and difficult life soon destroyed Frankenstein. Very soon after he was saved by Captain Walton, he died. Walton was asked to kill the monster for Frankenstein. Finally, the monster realized the mistake he had made and chose to end his life by himself.

Your opinion



In my opinion, Cloning is a new technology, which has both advantages and disadvantages. Scientists can clone valuable organs to save people’s life, which is considered a scientific breakthrough and can benefit humankind a lot. On the other hand, Cloning may cause many serious problems that humans have never meet with before and so difficult to solve. There are still arguments whether it should be experimented on human beings. In a word, What matters most? It is how we take advantage of this technology instead of preventing it going forward.
