I love everything Frankenstein. My wife indulges my insanity and I love her more for it, lol. It all started with the book. It is my all time favorite book. The story had all the elements I look for in a tale. It started with action and then segued into the tragic story of love, loss and obsession. I love, love, love this book and because I love it my obsession has branched out to collecting Frankenstein dolls. I don’t have thousands of dolls because that would really be insane but I have enough that take me to that edge, lol. As is evident below:
Years ago I started doing a “Flat Stanley-ish” project with one doll. His name is Bjorn Maelstrom. I got him at Disney World’s Norway in Epcot in 2004.
I started a blog with his adventures that has included many of my cast of characters but I always come back to the Frankenstein guys. In the end if there was only one book to read forever I would pick Frankenstein. I’m not into the gore of the creature but for the hope that he represents. A creature different from everyone else who looks for acceptance or the hope there is one other person like him out there to be found or in his case made.
