March 8: Ten Characters Everyone Loves But I Just Don't Get or Ten Characters I LOVE But Others Seem To Dislike
I’m gonna go halfsies and change it up just a little
Five characters whom many people like, that I just don’t get…or just plain dislike:
Jay Gatsby from The Great Gatsby
Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye
Don Quixote from Don Quixote
Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights
Jean Brodie from The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
Five characters whom I love, who don’t get enough love:
Faramir from The Lord of the Rings
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.
Alyosha from The Brothers Karamazov
Alyosha smiled softly “God will conquer!” he thought.
Starbuck from Moby Dick
Moby Dick's no devil; he's a whale, a monstrous big whale aye, but a whale no more. And we're whaling men no less. We do not turn from whales, we kill em.
Lady Jessica from Dune
How seductive it is to live in peace
Denver from Beloved
The job she started out with, protecting Beloved from Sethe, changed to protecting her mother from Beloved.
