Booking through Character

btt button

If you could be a character from any book, who would you be? And why?

If I take classic literature, I would like to be Jane Eyre. She was a very strong character. She knew her mind and despite her station, knew to stand up for her rights. In her time, not many did that. I admire her for that.

If I consider, recent characters, I would like to be Lisbeth Salander. I admire her for her spirit, her intelligence, her independence. 

Both have similarities but so much different. For obvious reasons, circumstances, time period and so much more.

Oh, I haven't read Jane but need to. I think Lisbeth is going to be a popular one, today. ;O)

Great picks. Lisbeth is really something!

Just finished reading "Cutting for Stone" by Abraham Verghese and that makes me want to be Indian doctor, working in Ethiopia. A strong and loving woman, self-forgetful and a bit feisty. Enjoy your blogs, gautami.

Jane's a great pic, although she led a pretty tough life. She's strong and I wish I had a bit more of that!
