The tone of The Devil’s Thumb is appreciative at some points and pessimistic at others. What I mean by this is John changes his mood quite often and this is what creates the suspense. For example, John says he is thankful for the opportunity because he has a perfect chance to “write his wrongs in life” p126. However, he views the bad sides of things in parts of the text such as when there was a blizzard (p132), and he was very hesitant on whether to stay, leave, or give up. He regretted his actions many times, but it was his passion, motivation, and will that pushed him

“I shall relate events that impressed me feelings which, from what I was, have made me what I am” (Shelley 80). In the second volume Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, the monster’s story during his years of isolation shows the complexity of his character; this complexity makes him an enigma. In order to uncover the mysteries behind this enigma, we must analyze the factors that played a role in his development. Looking at the monster’s development, we can see parallels between the monster and feral children. Much like feral children, the monster was abandoned—during the early period of his life—and was placed under extreme circumstances, which he was forced to endure—having to fend for himself.
This is when Lyman started to feel more hopeful towards Henrys recovery. “He just said, “Let’s take this old shit-box for a spin.” Just the way he said it made me think he could be coming around” (Para 47). From there, Lyman and Henry went on a road trip to Pembina to see the Red River to see the high waters. During the trip Lyman describes Henry as peaceful but not the same as he was.
She uses imagery to show the kind of reaction that Frankenstein had on his creation’s awakening and the kind of words he used to describe his very own creation. His description of the creature is used to show how judgemental humans are against other people who are not similar to them though they do not even know the other being. Frankenstein’s foreshadowing of the future with his creation in it, also is used as an example as to how humans discriminate others and assume the worst based on appearances. Shelley’s use of both of these strategies gives the readers a first hand look into how judgemental and discriminating humans can be to those that are slightly or majorly different to them, and it allows the readers to see why this way of being and thinking is not acceptable. Her way of writing her story serves as a lesson to those who read it and as an example about what is wrong with the way Frankenstein judged his own creation and why it is not right to discriminate or isolate another individual or group based on their appearance or any
