What a great article--I thoroughly enjoyed reading it! It was
interesting to see how "favorite character" was defined differently for
different folks: someone they admired, someone they liked, someone they
pitied, someone they identified with...
Of course the next obvious question is: who is your favorite dwj
character? (or we could also do favorite character period).
For me, currently:
Favorite DWJ character(s): Elda in Year of the Griffin and Awful in
Favorite character: Thursday Next (jasper fford). She's so fun and
feisty and smart.
hmm. I think I see a pattern here...
Oh, we could also do (thinking here of the Bookworld Awards in The Well
of Lost Plots): most tiresome character. I vote for Pamela, from
Richardson's book of the same name. I'm teaching it on Friday and am
kicking myself for assigning it. ARGH! well, i think it will be fun to
talk about, but boy, I really want to smack her one in the chops.
Back to reading and grading...
