"October/lokakuu Kauhukirjana tai kertomuksena huono ja vanhentunut, mutta pidin psykologisesta ja symbolisesta otteesta. Todellinen hirviö on loppuun asti tekopyhässä valossa esitetty Frankenstein, jonka narsismin - aluksi menestyksen halun, sen jälkeen kostonhimon - ympärille tarina punoutuu. Vastoin kertojien ajatuksia juuri hän on kauneudellaan, menestyksellään ja miellyttävyydellään ympäröiviä ihmisiä puolelleen manipuloiva taho (minkä hän alitajuisesti tiedostaa, mutta yri"
