ABC – Day 8 – Favourite Character

Who is your favourite character?

Who is your favourite character?

Who is your favorite literary character? With which literary character do you most relate? Which literary character would you most like to invite for tea/coffee? What would you ask him/her? What do you think you could teach him/her?

OK, who came up with this topic? There’s no way I can choose just one character… I love them all! Well, maybe not all of them, but asking me who my favourite character is is on par with asking me what is my favourite book, or who is my favourite child! I simply can’t decide.

Part of the reason is there are so many characters out there. What was a favourite character as a child, isn’t as an adult. What is a favourite today, may not be tomorrow…. much of who my favourite character is depends on what I’m reading, what is going on in my life, and even on the time of day. I have been known to love a character for part of a book, and my opinion of them change as the book goes on, or the other way around.

For me, a great character is one that is well rounded and not too perfect. A perfect character can be boring and one dimensional. It’s interesting, the author doesn’t necessarily have to explain how they look, just how they act and interact with the world around them.

I like picking up a new book to discover new characters and learning about their lives.

It would be a pretty big tea party to have all the characters I love enjoy a cup of tea…


For today, I invite you to visit Beth Kozan’s blog. She’s an author and adoption counselor.
