    Frankenstein Read Aloud: Episode Four

    Intro:
    Hello, hello. My name is Hannah and we are back with episode 4 of our Frankenstein read aloud. You all know the drill by now, before we all settle in to our comfies, start up our cars, and gather a crowd we LOVE to share a fun fact with you all. Did you know that Mary Shelley is considered to be the mother of science fiction? At age 18? Frankenstein is unique in that it’s sort of the first novel that falls under the genre we’d now call ‘science fiction.’ Without her, movies like Star Wars and shows like Stranger Things wouldn’t really exist in the same way! Wild! I now invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
     
    Outro:
    End of episode 4. Thank you, once again, for joining us on our freaky tail and don’t feel TOO bad if you end up sleeping with the lights on. I won’t judge – much. Until next time….

    Frankenstein Read Aloud: Episode Three

    Frankenstein Read Aloud: Episode Three

    This episode covers Chapters 8 through 10

    Click the link to follow along with the story at home!

    Intro:
    Hello again! It’s me, Hannah. We are back with episode 3 of Frankenstein or, the Modern Prometheus. As you know, we like to share a fun fact or story before we get into the read aloud and this one isn’t for the faint of heart.
    Did you know that Percy Shelley’s heart refused to burn? After his death in a boating accident off the coast of Italy, his body was cremated. But his heart had calcified and remained intact (it’s speculated that this was due to a bout with tuberculosis earlier in his life). Mary Shelley took the calcified heart of her beloved husband, and kept it with her for many years. It was even found in her possession when the died![1] Creepy! Devoted, but still, creepy.
    With that being said, let’s get to it. Sit back, relax, and I hope you enjoy.
    Outro:
    End of episode 3. Thanks again for tuning in! Join us next week where Georgia regales us with the woe’s of this wretched monster…. Until  then….
