Frankenstein Chapter 19 Summary

READ THE BOOK: Chapter 19
  • Victor can't really work with Henry and the monster breathing down his neck, so he leaves Henry with a friend in Scotland.
  • Victor then rushes off to the Orkneys, where he can work on his lady monster in solitude.
  • Still, this guy has a tough time getting himself to work. To be fair, it's not the usual causes of procrastination, like a Real Housewives marathon. No, in this case he can't help wondering if he's just making another destructive monster.
  • Victor spends all his time alone with his half-finished monster and a guilty conscience.
