Wednesdays Question

questionIt’s Wednesday so that means it’s question time. It’s time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We’d all like that.

So here’s this weeks question: If you could be a character in any novel you’ve ever read, who would you be and why?

Eve Dallas is the main character of the In Death novels, a futuristic (circa 2058 AD) romance-mystery series by J.D. Robb, pseudonym for author Nora Roberts. Source: Wikipedia

I was a cop for 25 years and when I ended my career I was a lieutenant. I was a good cop, but Eve Dallas is a great cop.

    Oooh, tough one! First to mind was Miss Elinor Dashwood (Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen). I am also an eldest daughter and I can remember feeling and immediate and deep connection to Elinor. I am a closet romantic! But please, don't tell anyone, OK?

    big hugs xoxo

    That is a tough question and I like everyone else, I can't think of anyone right now. That would take some thinking and thinking is hard to do.
    Sandee you have a super duper day along with Zane and Little Bit

    There are so many to pick from! Mostly the characters from years ago come to my mind. It would have to be someone who overcame a difficult start in life, i think, but i'm not sure which one.

    That is a tough question. I think any positive man that was in any of Stephen King's books. Exciting, scary but at the end some form of success.
    Have a very exciting, happy, positive Wednesday Sandee. See ya.

    This question is too hard! But I'd agree with the Stephanie above. I want to be the authors who create the characters. Maybe a character from 'East of Eden' or a character from one of John Steinbeck's other books because they are always complex people.

    Excellent and tough question:
    So many characters to choose from. Maybe Hermione from Harry Potter books.
    I have enough stuff in my "mothership" (ie: purse) to qualify. At least that's what my kids say!

    I'd be Wonder Woman so I could fly around in an invisible jet. 😉 I always wondered though, if SHE was invisible while in it…cuz if not, that'd be weird. Clearly I haven't seen the show for a long time. 😉

    I steer more towards the heroic characters, e.g., Ellen Ripley from the Alien novel by Allan Dean Foster, or Lisbeth Salander from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series of novels by Stieg Larsson. There are plenty more, but those were the first to pop into my head.

  9. Ann Thompson says:

    this is a tough one. Since I just finished a book and I found the main female character totally delightful I would choose her. In the beginning of the book she's a newly divorced housewife who plan her own suicide to take place on her 60th birthday. By the end of the book she has discovered herself and made a wonderful life that she loves.

    Dear Sandee, This is a tough question. As with so many of the characters I have fallen in love with, to pick one is difficult. I have learned something from all the characters and would like to think that to take these traits and mold them into one would be nice. Perhaps I will go with Scarlett O' Hara for her strength and Marie Von Trapp for her strength. Both strong women. xoxo Catherine

    I love the Robb’s series with Dallas too. Ok, who would I be? Madeira Cutler in Annette Blair’s Vintage Magic Mystery series. She owns a vintage clothes shop but also sometimes when she touches clothes, she can see their history. I’d love to have that talent. Oh, and I also like Lacey in Ellen Byerrum’s Crime of Fashion series. She’s a spunky reporter who wears vintage clothes. Hmmm, I’m sensing a theme here. I do love vintage clothes — especially 1940s style.
