Is the creature in Frankenstein not scary at all, just... really tragic. To the point where I end up hating both the POV character and... almost everyone else. A lot. I'll give some examples, but before hand, I'll call the creature Adam to simplify some things. With that in mind, 1. Everyone Adam meets refuses to even hear him out. From what I remember, the only person that doesn't immediately attack him, or similar, to get rid of him is a blind man. Yes, Adam's creator does eventually hear him out, but I think Adam basically had to force him to do that. 2. His creator does nothing to take care of him, up to refusing to grant a request that, if he had, would've prevented Adam from harming anyone else! Yes, admittedly, that was treating another sentient being as an object, however he does nothing to try and explain this to Adam. Instead, he just destroys the materials necessary to the being's creation, and in the process, pointlessly provokes Adam. 3. Despite all of this, Adam, until I think near the end or middle, doesn't even attempt to fight back, or punish in anyway the people who keep making his life miserable, even though he has more than enough power to do so. Now, to be fair, it's been a bit since I've read the book. Perhaps I forget details that made Adam less... tragic at points. Still, from what I do remember, the character really seemed more like a victim than a monster. Everyone hates him, even though, again, he does nothing to provoke this at all, other than existing basically. Thoughts on this?
