    It’s funny how Frankenstein immediately knows what he did what wrong. As soon as the monster draws his first breath, Frankenstein feels the weight of guilt. There is quite the speculation as to whether Mary or Percy wrote Frankenstein. Some people use this moment to prove Mary wrote the book. Had Percy written the book, his “creator of life” would have been proud of his creation and he would not seen the error of his ways. That’s how Percy lived his life, arrogantly thinking his ideas were superior. Mary, however, questioned her way of life and wasn’t completely sure her parents and husband had it right. So, Frankenstein’s ability to realize the error of his ways may lend some credibility to Mary being the true author of the book.
