In many ways the real monster was Dr. Frankenstein and not his creation who had no real chance to live a normal life.

Is Frankenstein a monster or victim?

The only Frankenstein in the story is Dr. Victor von Frankestein. His creation is simply referred to as the monster. Let's examine both though. The "monster" is certainly a hideous, montrous creation. It is death brought back to life. It is nearly mindless. But it is clearly a victim. The creature misunderstands everything, and is misunderstood by everyone. He had no choice in his creation, he is a slave to his thick wittedness and passions. Victor on the other hand can easily be painted as a monster. He can just as easily be painted as a victim. He is the antithesis of his creation. The creature is stupid; victor is brilliant. The creature knows nothing but what he feels; Victor feels nothing but hubris until the creature takes everything away from him. They are yin and yang, not good and evil, just two sides of the same coin. In the end, Victor becomes the victim of his creation, perhaps also of himself. Afterall, if you build a monster it will kill you.

Why does the creature compare himself to Adam?

One of the ways in which the monster demonstrates his eloquence is by alluding to John Milton's Paradise Lost, one of the books he reads while living in the peasants' hovel (described later in the monster's narrative). The first of these allusions occurs in these chapters, when the monster tries to convince Victor to listen to his story. He entreats Victor to "remember, that I am thy creature: I ought to be thy Adam; but I am rather the fallen angel." By comparing Victor to God, the monster heaps responsibility for his evil actions upon Victor, scolding him for his neglectful failure to provide a nourishing environment.
