In their respective novels, the monster from Frankenstein and Grendel from the novel share many similarities as well as differences that can be seen throughout their separate novels. While the number of differences between the two novels are abundant, we will mostly be looking at how each of these two complex novels are similar to each other.

The next part in the story is when the family starts to escape and run away from all of their problems. I read pages seventeen to forty seven. We meet their grandmother and the rest of the family is all mentioned in the section.
