Format: Paperback
I didn't like the main character at all. He took no responsibility for devoloping the humanity of the being he created. He abandoned and later betrayed it meanwhile cursing the creature for its actions. The daemon, learned and soulful, might have offered much to humanity besides the evil that Victor had condemned it behind its isolation and deformity. By itself, the daemon could not overcome its exterior despite its attempts. Not being accepted by humanity because of its appearance, the daemon teaches us despite how noble intentions may be that people often let appearance get in the way. I wonder whether the daemon would have accepted in a leper colony.
