Who is your favorite female lead character? And why? (And yes, of course, you can name more than one . . . I always have trouble narrowing down these things to one name, why should I force you to?) – BTT
I always dislike favourite questions because I can never narrow it down to one or two. Here’s the list I could think off the top of my head:
Elizabeth Bennet of P&P – I like her moxie. Heh.
Anne of Anne of Green Gables – I have only read one Anne book, and like thousands of others, she won my heart.
Jane Eyre – Enough said.
Cassandra from I Capture the Castle – Unrequired love, this girl can relate.
Death from the Sandman series – She’s not exactly a female lead, but she is awesome.
Viola from Twelth Night – Fun times cross dressing.
Wendy from Peter Pan – Now, I’m just being maudlin.
Natasha from War and Peace -Â Her transformation to naive girl to mature woman through war and romantic mistakes makes her the best female Tolstoy character.
Thursday Next – Well, she’s pretty much done everything.
Hmm, this list seems very short. There are most likely more.
