In the book, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, complex forms of imagery, tone-developing diction, and a variety of well-organized and composed themes are utilized to further envelop her story and engage readers.

The description of the monster is largely painted through this use of intense and comprehensive adjectives that aptly portray an uneasing creature. Under Frankenstein’s interpretation of the monster, the reader can actively imagine and adopt the feelings that he has towards the monster.

She mentions how Laura is a light sleeper, causing you to wonder why she isn 't waking up throughout all of the noises and David getting into bed.

In Charlie in the Chocolate Factory he portrays Charlie’s house as a dark dilapidated building that looks abandon like no one could live there or something could be lurking there. When he then shows us the inside it is run down and sparsely lit but it has the most loving, wise, and caring characters.

He does do a good job of explaining the scenery of where things are taking place during the story and he uses great detail to do so.
