Day 2 of Blogging A-Z and I'm continuing my theme on favorite characters.
And for B:
Becky Sharp from Vanity Fair by William Thackeray.
When I first read Vanity Fair in my early twenties I was on a mission to read as many classics as I could and wasn't expecting to fall in love with this story. I was hooked. Now, I know Beck Sharp is not exactly one of those characters we're supposed to admire --she was not exactly sympathetic at times. But I found her to be smart and misunderstood.
I really found myself rooting for her and hoping she'd get her life figured out. And she was a fun girl to journey through the story with. She's a perfect example of how writers don't have to create "nice" protagonists for readers to connect and enjoy reading about. Matter of fact, the more conflicted, yet determined, the better!
Thanks for stopping by! I love making new friends! Do you have a fave character that starts with a B? Or just someone you'd like to mention? Please share ....
