One of the best things about literature, is the artistically drawn dynamics of human nature. If done well, writers can paint character structures and small little idiosyncrasies that are a reflection of either how people are, or what we hope them to be. Some characters know exactly what to say in any given scenario. Some are quick-witted and sharp and react with perfect clarity, perfectly cool quips that we wish we could muster in our daily lives. Some are the paradigms of virtue, of sincerity, of humility and make us question our own motivations and behaviors.

This week’s staff pick concerns these either vastly flawed (and sarcastically sharp) or paradigmatically honorable characters that we would love to be like. Check out our selections and let us know about yours, LitStackers. We want to hear from you.

    T.S. Tate – I almost picked Rachel Morgan too!! Glad I went with Anita instead so we didn't have duplicates! Great choice! 🙂

  3. Hello, I'd pick Frodo from your list, but of course, if I could choose another LOTR character, I want to be Lord Aragorn. 🙂

    I know all of us wants to imitate someone whom we really like but for me, there is nothing wrong with that. VZ 58
