Follow Friday



Yes, it's that awesome time of week again, Follow Friday. For those of you who may have missed it, Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkie and Alison Can Read and is intended to help like minded bloggers network with one another. The great thing about this meme is that both of the hosts have a feature blog each week, and there is always a question that gets everyone talking. This week's question is:

Q: Fight! Fight! If you could have two fictional characters battle it out (preferably from books), who would they be and who do you think would win?


I would have Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice fight Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights simply because they are both iconic leading men of British Literature, but are so radically different from one another. Although Heathcliff is probably physically stronger, Mr Darcy would win through his intelligence, character and sense of fair play. Plus, unless your name is Elizabeth Bennet, you don't want to make Mr Darcy angry.

  1. My mother loves those books, it's a shame that I haven't read any one of those and get to know the leading men. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. @Vanessa. You're welcome. And there's always plenty of time to start and get to know these fabulous novels. I recommend the Penguin editions.

    @Aeicha. You're welcome. I'm glad you agree with me regarding Mr Darcy!

  4. LOL. I love -- LOVE -- that every single other blog I have been to today on this hop has pulled from current YA fiction, and you went to Jane Austen and Emily Bronte. Love it.

    Also, as soon as I saw your matchup, my thought was "PLEASE let Mr. Darcy win over jerky Heathcliff." And of course he did.

    *sigh* I think we all kind of want our own Mr. Darcy

    Ummm....[*waves at husband - love you, Honey!*]

    Anyway, love your matchup. Best one I've read today. Thanks for the follow and comment, and I'm following you now too!

  10. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day - sorry I've been so slow responding to the comment! I'm following you back.

    It's funny that you went for the other leading man in P&P to me. I went for the one full of hot air and you went for the one full of... better substance. Difference is, I'd love to see Wickham get thrashed in a fight. I'd have to see Darcy even in a fight. :p Nice picks though!
