I need a Hero: BTT
Booking Through Thursday
You should have seen this one coming … Who is your favorite Male lead character? And why?
Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
There are so many! For swashbuckling adventure, I love Edmund Dantes from The Count of Monte Cristo. Just an average Joe, who's tossed into prison for life, learns the 'art of war'- sort of speak, escapes, acquires unimaginable wealth, plots needlessly complicated revenge and proceeds carrying it out. You know, like anyone would.
Then there's Jamie Fraser (sigh) from Outlander who I'm sure will be on many lists. A leader of men, a lover of woman (Claire). He's the guy to go to when the chips are down.
There's the unassuming, quiet man of justice, Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird. He's raising two kids alone in a town of racial prejudice and trying to teach them right from wrong. Atticus's best lesson is for everyone to walk around in someone else's skin before making judgements.
I'm sure I could go on forever, but there's only so many hours in this gorgeous day.
