Q:You should have seen this one coming … Who is your favorite Male lead character? And why?
A:Oh, um wow. I am having just as much trouble with this one as with the last one....or maybe I'm not. I need to think it over for a second.
Several male characters come to mind, I honestly don't have just one...
- Hazel (the leader rabbit) in Watership Down by Richard Adams. He is the perfect leader for the group and learns and grows, while admitting when he is wrong. He takes suggestions from others, but makes decisions even when not the popular choice when he finds it necessary. He is my furry hero!
-Leo Gursky in The History of Love by Nicole Krauss. I have never read an elderly male character such as this one, and been so able to relate to his voice. I won't ruin the book for anyone who has not read it, so I'll just say that in many opportunities throughout his life where he could turn bitter and un-trusting he continues on loving the whole way thought. He is my human hero!
PS If you haven't read either of these books you are completely missing out!!
