8.Explain the irony in Frankenstein's actions Even after Victor’s mother dies, and she wished for him to take care of the family and to wed Elizabeth, Victor spends his time in science and neglects his family, shutting off contact for 2 years and not returning home until 6 years later.

Although not fully recovered, Victor returns home and decides not to tell his family, but rather go back into nature for more isolation, He did not learn from his actions and after the monster pays him a visit, Frankenstein continues his mission in isolation.

For instance, in his childhood, Amir is constantly competing with Hassan for Baba’s attention and love. This leads to his lack of action when he witnesses Hassan’s rape. His regret for not interfering when it happened and hiding his misguided choice infect his mind even in his adult life six years later when he moves to America.

In my opinion, Hamlet is the major character. He is the prince of Denmark and a student as well. Hamlet is an enigmatic character and he is very sceptical, which means he won 't believe anything unless he sees it with his own eyes. He appears for the first time in Scene 2, where he seems to be very upset because of his father 's death. He 's asked by his mother Gertrude why he keeps wearing black clothes and he tells her that there is more than the black clothes he wears, there 's grief within him, more than she could ever see:

Some try to fix the damaged the therapy has done, but most end up not being able to fix it and their bond with their family ultimately gone. A bisexual and genderfluid young man, who went through the gay conversion therapy, said it was torture. The conversion therapy he went through lasted two years. They told him that his faith community rejected his sexuality, that he was the abomination they had learned and taught about in Sunday School, that he was the only gay person in the world, and that “inevitably” he would contract H.I.V. and AIDS. They said these spiteful and hurtful things all just to make him feel that he was wrong for being who he was, but sadly that isn’t all they did.
At the end of the book he doesn’t know what his father thinks of hi anymore. And the most important one to me is Steve’s betrayal of his own feelings. He can’t make his mind up on what he thinks of himself and he is constantly second guessing himself and battling with himself. I think that it was a good book. I had never heard of it before

1) I believe that Moore, the author, is trying to say that the second chance is trying to rewrite the first mistake and the last chance could be your last chance. The author’s last chance to stop his drug dealing was when he was sent to military school. His temper against his mother, bad grades, absences from classes and an incident with a smoke bomb were the reasons his mother sent him to military school. (Moore 87) The “other” Wes had the decision to stop selling drugs while raising his family.
