Which character haunts you?
Pennywise the clown
Annie Wilkes in Misery
As I was reading the post I thought of Annie and then I saw your post. I saw the movie and was too afraid to read the book!!
@Agnes ugh yes the book is EXCELLENT and her character still gives me the chills!
Cathy from Wuthering Heights
The husband in Pretty Girls.
Cujo, from Cujo by Stephen @King
Grenouille in Perfume.
Haunts me? As I think of him as a real person and I wonder about him or his daughter? Count Rostov from A Gentlemen in Moscow….
The unknown creatures in Bird Box
@Kimberly omg! I just finished reading it today!! So suspenseful and disturbing! Amazing how the author managed to scare the heck out of you with something that could not be seen!!
@Julie One of the biggest fears is fear of the unknown.
For a very long time, the witch from Hansel and Gretel. And the frog prince…
The character of Fred Clegg from John Fowles’ the Collector. Read it in 1994, still haunts to this day. Proof I think of a brilliant writer….
I just finished The Collector. ? I was surprised that Fred or Miranda didn’t haunt me after I was done reading. Miranda certainly haunted me while I was reading. But what character does haunt me is Conchis from John Fowles’ The Magus.
I haven’t read the magus yet. But read French lieutenant’s woman, which I found sad. Have Daniel martin but not read as yet. What did you think overall of the magus?
i think it’s a weird, trippy book. I feel like whenever I read it, I find myself saying out loud ‘Wait….what???’ I’ve read The French Lieutenant’s Woman and thought it a much more straightforward novel. I’ve not read Daniel Martin.
@Mary cool!! Enjoyed both john fowles so far but the collector I found was amazing
Yes. That costume is what nightmares are made of!!! Lol
Haunts in terms of poignant or scary?
The Talented Mr Ripley
Romy in The Mars Room.
Jack from the Shining
Bertha Mason ??
Outlander’s Ian Murray.
IN a sense of me thinking of him. He went through so much, and still is a staid friend to the Frasers and a person of integrity.
From The Goldfinch?
The Gentleman from Moscow and Kya, from Where the Crawdads Sing, which I just finished.
Is Where The Crawdads Sing written by Delia Owens?
There’s a character in a book called Waking the Moon by Elizabeth Hand who is mentally insane and the pawn of a secret society, he falls in love with his best friend, kills himself and rebirths himself, so that he can be with her 18 years later. She is 38 and he is 18 when they reunite. I read this book when I was 19 and have never gotten over it 20 years later.
Sophie from Sophie’s choice.
Anna from Mister God, This is Anna
