    I was thinking of all the characters I enjoyed in JK Rowling's book, it was Snape because he was the most complex.  

     I found the complexity intriguing, and so I liked the character Fitzwilliam Darcy.  The idea of the Dread Pirate Robert's evolution was interesting as well. Very thought provocative post.

    I would marry Atticus Finch in an instant but he is of a different calibre. And this requires no thought at all.

    I have my own obscure literary anti-hero: Tinker Gray in Rules of Civility by Amor Towles.  He wasn't who he seemed to be and it was quite sad in some ways.

    I am currently reading up a storm. I just finished Cutting on Stone by Abraham Vergese. Enjoyed it until the end and was somewhat deflated by how one of the female characters fared, Genet.  My reaction was: like, what?

    On the non-fiction front, it is Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. Self-help book, I admit, but I like her thinking

    I'm also starting a classic, The Moviegoer by Percy Walker. What amazing writing.
