    It may be the way they life, the way they dress, etc. You need not be of the same sex or generational status...!

    Yossarian from Catch 22 for too many reasons --- the only sane person protesting against the futility of war, his sense of humour and when I studied this book at school it was first time I encountered an anti-hero... And I love anti-heroes :-)

    Probably Hamlet--I tend to obsessively overthink decisions...

    Ha - I am Peter Pan. I love the way he flies around. I love his childish mind. And I love the kind of freedom that it embodies.

    I'm Dr. Seuss Hopper Humperdink. I don't normally like going into parties.

    Monte Cristo.  I wouldn't do some of what he did, but it's fun to think of owning all those jewels and being able to help people the way he helped an old friend, buying his former employer a brand new ship.

    Young Goodman Brown. Why? Because sometimes my wife really surprises me (in a good way).

    Wow! Great question, Aley--I'm gonna have to ponder this one a bit--I'll get back with you.   

    How about your pick?   smile

    I guess it would be Edna Pontellier in The Awakening. Although I live in a different world than she did and would not walk into the water to drown, I love her resistance to conformity and her ability to stand up to a patriarchal society! Plus I love the time period...

    Anne Shirley, because I spend far too much time daydreaming and have far too sensitive a spirit for my own good. :-)

    Elizabeth Bennett in "Pride of Prejudice."  I tend to talk and banter in relationships with men.
