And the Creature (as he's called in the book) learns to speak from reading novels and listening to the conversations of Felix and his sister Agatha, who live with their blind father.

Unlike the movie when the Creature meets the blind man for an hour and leaves immediately, he actually spends months hidden in their backyard sleeping in their shed without them knowing he's there until he tries to initiate contact, scaring them half to death with his appearance.

The Creature doesn't have a consistent name in the book. It's narrated by Frankenstein and he uses a different string of insults to refer to the Creature every time.
