    Book Overview Following his lab's explosion, Henry and Elizabeth Frankenstein head to London for a rest (and to avoid possible criminal charges). The monster, still alive, follows, but winds up in the Whitechapel district. There, he's mistaken for a disfigured, mentally disabled man and befriended by local prostitutes.5/5(5). Frankenstein and Clerval get all fired up about the "self sacrifice" of English heroes—but it's too late for Frankenstein, who's so bummed out about the monster that he doesn't even feel "free." This gives us some context for his alleged self sacrifice later, but we're not sure that it counts if you create the problem in the first place, right?
