Parasha: Frankenstein March 22nd reading

Looks like we're definitely drawing toward some sort of resolution here, since Frankenstein's finally off his duff and actually Doing Stuff.

Most of the chapter is going on about scenery, traveling, and Frankenstein's feelings of guilt and horror, blabbity blah. Oh, and he seems to be wavering back and forth on whether he realizes he may have done something stupid by up and leaving the country without even contacting the Creature, or not.

Mostly though this just seems to be a needed but relatively unimportant chapter that progresses the action in predictable ways. Previously, he promised to create a companion for the Creature, and decided he needed information in England, this time, he starts actually Doing This, but hasn't finished anything yet.

Oh, and he does make mention of the fact that he's feeling guilt, without actually being guilty of anything. Which, Victor, hahaha, pull the other one, it's got bells on. Or at least cute little sparkly things.

And Scotland still does not seem like the place to be doing Mad Scientisty stuff!

Also, I'll let the poll go for probably another day, but it's looking at the moment like it might be The Last Unicorn for April. Any objections?
