Literature’s Lushest? Vote for Your Favourite

Unknown-1

Does  anyone else fall hopelessly in love with fictional characters from books?  We know they’re not real, but they’re often so… yummy. Well, not all of them – not Voldemort… or Patrick Bateman from American Psycho.

I’m partial to Gilbert Blythe. Actually, partial’s not really the word. Obsessed with would be more accurate. I mean, the guy fell in love with Anne when she broke a slate over his head. He wasn’t attracted to her looks or social standing – it was all about her  personality, wit and intelligence. Gilbert had class. He gave up a job so that she could have it. He couldn’t promise her “diamond sunbursts or marble halls”, but he said,  “Anne, I’ve loved you as long as I can remember. I need you.”  Man, if he’s not a kindred spirit, I don’t know who is.

But am I wrong? Does anybody else have a favourite? Have I missed anyone out? Take the poll below or tell us in the comments:

  1. I am an Atticus Finch kinda girl. There’s something about a quiet intelligent man fighting societal injustice, and teaching his children about walking in another person’s shoes.

    But, my younger teenage self would say Harry Potter. Something about a man in glasses who humbly fights evil.
