Top Ten Dynamic Duos


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.  Each week, we get a theme to list our top tens. 

This week, we have to list Top Ten Dynamic Duos. There are so many I really like. I will choose from classics to present day.

I list the following in no particular order:
1) Romeo and Juliet from Shakespeare
2) Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson from Arthur Conan Doyle novels/stories
3) Hercule Poirot and Captain Arthur Hastings from the Agatha Christie mysteries
4) Perry Mason and Della Street from the Erle Stanley Gardner series
5) Jane Eyre and Rochester from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
6) Jeeves and Bertie from the Pg Wodehouse novels/stories
7) Heathcliff and Cathy from Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
8) Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
9) Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn from Mark Twain books/stories
10) Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist from the Millennium Series by Stieg Larsson

I almost put Salander and Blomkvist on my list. Those are some great stories, but I can only handle them in small portions. And during full daylight hours. :) Thanks for stopping by my blog!, and great list.

I dithered on listing Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester, also Romeo and Juliet.

Thanks for commenting on my post.

I thought about putting Romeo and Juliet on my list as well but to be very honest they irritate me more than inspire me.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting :D

Thanks for commenting on my list! Love all those duos on your list too. In fact, I thought ten was too little (so many duos...), but you can't win 'em all :)

Thanks for visiting my blog :) You also have a great list! I wanted to add Heathcliff and Catherine, but because I have added them before, I didn't want to repeat myself! I have heard of Jeeves / Bertie, but have never read any P.G Wodehouse - might be something to check out :)

Great lists. My first thoughts were of more recent duos - Eve and Roark, Jamie and Clare, Lisbeth and Mikael.

Fun picks! For some reason Romeo and Juliet never even came to mind when I saw this question. Not sure why. Too tragic? But then so are Scarlett and Rhett. Now you've got me thinking!
