A while back on Facebook, we asked you what one character from a book you’d choose to be. The masses have spoken, and here’s what they chose. What about the rest of you?
Katie Gibson: I would probably be Samwise Gamgee from LotR. He’s loyal to a fault, kind (but wary and watchful), and never gives up.
Brian Wedge: Jim Hawkins—Treasure Island—adventure, pirates, treasure, and ships—who wouldn’t!
Deborah Follett: Jane Eyre, she chose to run away from her greatest temptation, and in following God’s moral law she retained her dignity and self-respect. In honoring Him, she gave up what she desired most, and He gave her that desire in it’s good and proper place in the end.
Blaine Salzman: Frederick Wentworth from Persuasion, because Anne Elliot is positively charming. ^_^ Downside: I wouldn’t care to be in the navy.
Gordon Jones: The White Rabbit because of that tall and quite small pill thing…
Alyssa Blount: Jo March because she had spirit and fortitude, tenderness and kindness, and grew to understand her gifts and put them to use selflessly.
Eugene King: Colonel Brandon, Sense & Sensibility … or Atticus Finch
Sally Zaengle: The Giving Tree — because I really don’t want to be the little boy
