Sayshisweetie | 71 comments I read "Heart on a Chain" a while ago and the main character in their was amazing! Well written and totally likeable! She was the victim of child abuse and she was one of those characters you care about.


message 2: by Kimber (new)

Kimber (kimberk) The Vampire Lestat, Ya gotta love him! I'm convinced he's for real and that I would know him right away.


message 3: by Fiona (new)

Fiona McGier | 55 comments Remember when Anne Rice finished writing Memnoch the Devil, her answering machine on her phone said that she had nothing more to say about Lestat, he was quiet now and not talking to her anymore. Obviously she changed her mind after that! At the time I thought it was an odd was of putting it, almost as if Lestat really WAS alive and telling her his life story. But now that I'm a published author, I have characters "talking" in my head all of the time, waiting for me to write their stories also. I guess that's why I write.

Nada Al-Karmi (nadooush) Hermione from harry potter, i just love her, even when she's a bit annoying
Mr. Darcy from pride & prejudice
Edmond Dantes in the count of monte cristo
Hareton Earnshaw in wuthering heights

Fiona McGier | 55 comments Foaly from the Artemis Fowl books by Eoin Colfer. And Artemis' bodyguard: Butler. If you enjoyed the Harry Potter books, you have to read the Artemis Fowl series! They are much better written, and more fully-developed characters.

Edward is my favorite too. Except my Edward isn't a vampire, he kills them with a flame thrower. Edward (aka Ted Forrestor) from the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton.


message 20: by Valerie (new)

Valerie | 7 comments Hmm...a lot of you guys like fantasy? My favorite is probably Holden Caulfield. Hahaha


message 21: by Beatrix (new)

Beatrix (smiley_omnomnom) | 42 comments Best character? Jace Wayland of City of Bones He's terrificly horrible. Although my all out character crush is Jem Cartstairs from Clockwork Angel.
Teehee, I love her books. :3


message 22: by Susan (new)

Susan (suki553) | 9 comments Nora Bonesteel from the Ballad Books by Sharyn McCrumb. What a wonderful, wonderful character. I wish I knew her.....


message 23: by Susan (new)

Susan (suki553) | 9 comments OK, I just posted, then was going back through some of the older posts and there seem to be a lot that mention being in love with Edward Cullen. One says he's every woman's perfect man. Yes, he's good looking....or rather, Robert Pattinson is good looking....but he's also cold. I can't imagine finding a man whose skin is icy to the touch that exciting. Maybe it's just me.

I agree! I also really like Charlie from The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Turtle Wexler (The Westing Game), Addie (The Two Princesses of Bamarre), and pretty much all of the characters in the Harry Potter series.
