Booking Through Thursday — Hero

You should have seen this one coming … 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.

    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. 🙂
