Frankenstein Chapter 18 Summary

READ THE BOOK: Chapter 18
  • Victor procrastinates. Well, to be fair, it is hard to go around digging up all those graves.
  • Finally he decides to go off to England to work on his project. Because obviously.
  • Before he goes, his father notices that Victor seems pretty upset. Only he thinks it's because Victor doesn't want to marry his hot adopted sister Elizabeth anymore.
  • But Victor totally does. He's just got to make a second monster first.
  • So, Victor arranges with his father to leave for two years—and BFF Henry goes with him. Uh-oh.
