Johanna and Fennick are the most exciting and interesting character of CATCHING FIRE.
Followed by Peeta and Haymitch.

message 14: by Diana (last edited Feb 26, 2010 05:02PM) (new)

Diana wow, everyone's high-fiving me!

whose rachel?

I liked Rachel's character, personally.


Amelia, free market Puritan (aeimaginer12) I know you do :P
And you like Luke, too!


Rachel (aka. Kaiserin Sisi) (looney-lovegood) | 592 comments That's putting it mildly. ;)


message 20: by Rebekah Faith (new)

Rebekah Faith (musicalradiance) | 6788 comments hahahaha. very nice, Rachel (hahahaha). she was well written, but i hate her (and anyone who is Perachel)

Diana Amelia*annabeth&percy*sittin in a tree* wrote: "havent you read The Battle of the Labyrinth/The Last Olympian?"

yes, I have. I just wasn't sure if you were talking about the rachel I was thinking of. but if it's that rachel.... I probably would whack her, too


message 22: by Rebekah Faith (new)

Rebekah Faith (musicalradiance) | 6788 comments lolz. amelia, you forgot TTC. she's mentioned very briefly in it. ☺


Amelia, free market Puritan (aeimaginer12) Yeah, well whatever. :D She's not annoying in TTC. I'm really surprised, actually, that Annabeth never whacked her up the side of her head - that seemed like such a logical thing to do, and daughters of Athena are logical!


message 24: by Rebekah Faith (new)

Rebekah Faith (musicalradiance) | 6788 comments i know! lolz. but then again, it was annabeth so you never really do know.....☺


message 25: by Hope (new)

Hope (heyhopeful) I just typed up a ridiculously big list of all my favorite characters, and then I decided it was too big, and then I couldn't narrow it down. So I gave up. :)


message 26: by ★ Jess (new)

★ Jess  | 4295 comments Mod

lolz. but that's a good thing!


message 28: by Hope (new)

Hope (heyhopeful) :) Okay, I did it. I narrowed it down to five guys and five girls + the reasons why they’re on the list.

Favorite guys:
1. Sydney Carton (A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens ): because he’s tragic and sad and touching and hopeless and sweet, and noble.

2. Mr. Knightley (Emma - Jane Austen): because he’s so reasonable and grounded and steady. And he says “if I loved you less I might be able to talk about it more.” *loves it*

3. Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins): because he’s sooo sweet!

4. Gilbert Blythe (Anne of Green Gables - L.M. Montgomery): because, he’s romantic, and sweet, and boyish…with his roguish hazel eyes and dark hair. ;)

5. Max Meyer (The Shiloh Legacy - Brock & Bodie Thoene): it was really hard choosing one of the Thoene’s guys because they’re all really pretty much awesome, but I decided on Max because he starts out as a jerk and becomes such a nice guy. He grows so much.


Favorite girls:
1. Capitola Black (The Hidden Hand - E.D.E.N. Southworth): because she’s absolutely nuts, eccentric, and fiercely brave and loyal. Overall, lovable!

2. Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables - L.M. Montgomery): ‘cause she’s Anne! With an E, of course.

3. Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins): because she kicks butt. xD

4. Maximum Ride (Maximum Ride - James Patterson {duh}): she kicks butt and she’s funny. ;)

5. Elisa Lindheim (The Zion Covenant - Brock & Bodie Thoene): eh, there is no one reason. I just like her.

★ Jess  | 4295 comments Mod
TOP FIVE:

BOYS:
*Skulduggery Plesant (Skulduggery Plesant series) -Whats not to love about a smart dressing skelleton detective with awesomeaction skills and a great sense of humor?
*Jacob Black (Twilight Series)-I mean the character, not Taylor Launter. I loved Jacob before the movies were made.
*Remus Lupin (Harry Potter series) he was so supportive and awesome. Plus David Thwelis did him justice in the movie.
*Finnick (Catching Fire) Such a unique character. Caring, action packed, brave man.
*Ron (Harry Potter) Come on, every body as a spot for Ron...
*Dustfinger (Inkheart Trilogy) Hes an awesome fire eater with attitude!!!!


GIRLS:

*Elinor (Inkheart Trilogy) an old woman who loves books and has serious attitude.
*Johanna (Catching Fire) What a fierce character she is. What sealed her as my favorite was when she and kat had the wire, taking it down the hill. That and the awesome axe throw on the beach.
*Hermione (Harry Potter) So clever and plays a super important role.
