Continuing the Killer Character's blogfest hosted by the charming Deana Barnhart and E.R. King, today's post is on our fave literary protagonist.
This is a tough call. But I've narrowed it down to three.
3. Becky Sharp from Vanity Fair --- Love her bold bravery. When life gave her lemons, she made lemonade. She wasn't what I'd call a sweet, lovable MC, but she was real.
2. Scarlet O'Hara from Gone with the Wind --- Not the most modest or considerate MC, but that's why I liked her. She had spunk, and she got the job done. She didn't let others walk all over her. She was tough as nails, and far from boring. I never knew what this little lady was gonna do next.
1. Edmond Dantes from The Count of Monte Cristo --- This could be my fave story of all time. Could be, but the jury is still out. Why do I love Edmond? The tribulations he endured were horrendous. His character arc is unique, in that, he began as a noble, kind man. When wrong was done to him by his very best friend, which resulted in Edmond's imprisonment and the loss of his fiance, he sank into an all time despair--a despair that resulted in a life long ambition to get revenge. The ironic part is Edmond was so consumed with revenge, he was blinded to all the good fortune to come his way after his escape from prison. I loved following his journey.
