Characters Who Blog

It's the final countdown to Halloween, T minus seven days. I'm new to the A to Z team, so you won't yet have become familiar with obsession with holidays (but stick around, you'll see). I love getting into the spooky spirit, so in honor of the upcoming holiday I started reading one of my very favorite Gothic novels, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. It's the perfect story for this time of year when the days get shorter and the characters get more and more terrifying. 

And speaking of characters, as I read along I couldn't help but wonder what Dr. Frankenstein would be like. Would he be a cool guy to catch a movie with? Grab a drink? I imagine his stories would be . . . interesting to say the least. And if he had a blog, well, just imagine what that would look like. I did. And now for my second 'Characters Who Blog' post, I give you: 

I hope you enjoyed this post and it helped get you pumped for a spooky and spectacular Halloween! Muah-ha ha ha ha . . .

Ooooh. That is pretty creepy!

I think this would be funny from Gene Wilder's Young Frankenstein's perspective as well!

I went to see a stage version of Frankenstein recently, which I'm told was very close to the original story. I found it very moving. I've never read the original but I have a birthday coming up and have dropped large hints!

Your Mary Shelley connection was great, you see where I reside her son Percy(like her husband)
owned the land where the house I live when he was alive. Our doctor's surgery is once the manor where he and his wife lived. There is also a theatre he had built which has been refurbished called
Shelley Theatre. our whole area are connected to the Shelley's and their poetic friends.
