Now for our favourite male character…….
This was a lot easier for me and I have a few…. (1) Don Tillman from ‘The Rosie Project’ (2) Gus McCrae from ‘Lonesome Dove’ (3) Will McLean from ‘The Lords of Discipline’ (4) Count Alexander Rostov from ‘A Gentleman in Moscow’ & (5) Mr Knightly from Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’ ?
@Sandra rostovs one of my favourites too
@Sean he is the quintessential gentleman ?
@Sandra he really is , great book?
Ahh, Don Tillman, of course
1. Edmond Dantes from the Count of Monte Cristo. 2. Don Quixote 3. Jack Pencroft from The Mysterious Island 4. Al’Lan Mandragoran from the Wheel of Time
@Lupe jacks a great character. Verne had a lot of memorable characters
@Lupe and I’ve just started the counts of monte cristo and I already love Edmond
@Sean I have both read and listened to the audio books of both these books and the narrator does a great job on both books.. I specifically like the job he did narrating Pencroft.
Jean Valjean D’Artagnan Count Alexander Rostov Yossarian Patrick Bateman
And Iago & David Copperfield
All great characters!
I have just come in from gardening, I am hot and think it’s now time for a glass of Prosecco ? and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde!
@Sandra it’s pouring rain outside here , so lucky you
@Sean That’s right you are in Scotland? ☔☔
He is just the right man for Emma!
@Carolina Have you watched this BBC Adaptation of Emma, my favourite (Johnny Lee Miller & Romola Garai) – we are reading Emma next month in our Jane Austen Book Club. (Will be my third time reading it!)
I just have one right now.. Westley, from the Princess Bride!
Prince Hal/Henry V from Shakespeare, Colonel Brandon from Sense and Sensibility, James Bond (do we consider Ian Flemming a classic? because I do!), Jeeves from Wodehouse’s stories, Faramir from LOTR. And another favourite is Soames Forsyte – I absolutely hate the man and his actions, but I can’t deny that as a character with hundreds of issues he makes for a captivating read and gives much to think about.
@Natalia Henry v a great character ?
Yes, Soames Forsyte is memorable
1. Odysseus of Homer; 2. Colonel Brandon from “Sense and Sensibility”; 3. Heathcliff from “Wuthering Heights”; 4. Ben from “Look homeward, Angel” and Ishmael Chambers from “Snow falling on Cedars” 🙂
Winston Smith/Huck Finn/Sancho Panza and his Master…
Edmond Dantes otherwise known as the Count of Monte Cristo!
@Crystal I’m reading this at the moment and loving it , can tell it’s going to be epic already?
@Sean He’s the best! If he lived today, I think he’s who everyone would either want to know or want to be ?
@Crystal I need to read this next!
@Sandra it’s definitely one of my top 5! A long read, but so adventurous.
Joe Gargery from Great Expectations. “Ever the best of friends, Pip”.
Mr. Jarndyce from Bleak House? Dobbin from Vanity Fair?

1- Valencourt from The Mysteries of Udolpho 2- William Crimsworth from The Professor 3- Walter Hartright from The Woman in White
Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice ❤
@Evelyn As played by Colin Firth, the best Darcy, imo
@Lynne ohhhhhh yes!! Love Colin Firth, I now, in my minds eye, always associate Colin when I think of Darcy…
@Evelyn I’m a big Colin Firth fan. Although I’ve probably watched each of the filmed versions if P&P at least once.
@Chris he is a very odd character! I did enjoy reading the first book.
