You should have seen this one coming â€¦ Who is your favorite Male lead character? – BTT
Off the top of my head:
Morpheus from Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman – Okay, so he’s not particularly heroic. He’s broody, quiet and mysterious, but awesome characterisation.
Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre – If anything, he is entertaining to read.
Will from the His Dark Materials series – One day, if I am blessed, I’d have a son as loyal, loving, strong and smart as Will.
Calvin and Hobbes from Calvin and Hobbes – Technically comics but whatever. I love Hobbes more.
Harry Potter from Harry Potter – ’nuff said.
Hazel from Watership Down – Smart, quiet, and talented.
Peter Pan from Peter Pan – Maudlin again.
Cal from East of Eden – Flawed, angsty Cal. Not a hero per se, but definitely a lead.
Winnie the Pooh from Winnie the Pooh – Well, he’s somewhat heroic.
What a good list! Some ideas for me too, thanks!
oooh, Calvin and Hobbs!! good one!
Here is my BTT post!
Good list! I think Winnie the Pooh is a true hero (but then, he was one of my choices too!)
Now my Bears are definitely going to be with you where Pooh is concerned, although I think Paddington might be more to their liking. They would be loath to think of themselves as Bears of little brain.
Oh, how I wanted to mention one of the characters from East of Eden! But it’s been a while since I’ve read it. Fortunately, I’m re-reading it for my book club. 🙂
I agree with Harry Potter, Winnie the Pooh and Calvin and Hobbes from Calvin and Hobbes!
I love answers with Pooh in them. He’s a cutie!

Hazel! What a great pick!!!
I don’t know much about the other characters but I too thought of Harry Potter. 🙂
