Because this is the Halloween season. I thought I would post my opinion on the question. Is Frankenstein's Monster a Zombie?
Frankenstein’s Monster is not a Zombie. The Monster learns to speak and read. It expresses a want for a mate and happiness. The Monster is aware of its differences from ordinary humans. It seeks isolation for the safety of itself, as well as others.
The Monster ate nuts and berries, this implies it has a metabolism. It wanted a mate, and sought happiness. Victor feared it would reproduce. All these things imply that the Monster was alive on a cellular level. It required food and water, air to breath. It was alive. Zombies are not alive, they are dead and continue to decompose. I speculate that the monster had Stopped decomposing, and had begun to heal.
Zombies are dead. Their hearts don’t pump blood, their lungs don’t breath air. Their minds don’t think, their bodies don’t heal. They are the animated dead, not the revived living as was the Monster.
Why did I post this here? Because the people who care about such things are here.
