In the aftermath, they realized that there was no money to be made from fighting—no one would want to come to a place filled with people disputing over which town is better.

    Throughout the first volume of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, I was able to absorb most of the text during the first readthrough. Essentially, I picked up on the main points of the plot and any major events or details that happened. What I didn’t pick up on through the first reading though was many smaller, underlying themes that required some thought/analysis.
