    I wanted to give a quick summary of our first section of reading. Hope you all are enjoying!

    Robert Walton is a young explorer, setting out for the North Pole. He is writing a series of letters to his sister, in which he recounts that he and his crew saw The Monster (appearing to be a large man) trekking across the ice. He then rescues Victor Frankenstein from near death and brings him aboard the ship. Upon hearing Walton’s ambitions, Frankenstein becomes emotional and decides to tell Walton his story, so Walton can avoid the same fate as Frankenstein.
