Hello everyone! I'm new on this forum. I love literature and I'm looking forward to discussing it with you. I thought I'd post a new topic, sorry if it has already been posted here...

If you had a chance to go back in time and live the life of your favorite book character, whose life and where would it be?

Wow this is pretty tough, as much as I read it is hard for me to pick just one single all time faveorite char, and honestly I do not know if I can remeber them all, but I think perhaps one of my all time faveorite chars from a book that would be really cool to go back and live as would be Nightfall from the Legend of Nightfall by Mickey Zucker Reichert

I love that book, too. And you know, if you didn't cry at the end, you have no soul.

not necessarily no soul, it could easily be that the teacher making you read it in class is stopping you every three seconds to 'Analyze and Relate to your life', i lost track of the story and fell asleep during class, but i did cry when i read it the second and third and, well, ever since then.

I'd like to be Mary Lennox from The Secret Garden,, written by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Oh, that's a tough call. But I would probably have to say Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice.

A toss up between Anna Kerinena and Scarlot O'Hara.

The first made too many mistakes and gave up. The second never quit.

I'm new here, too. This is such an interesting question. When I thought of all the books I really love, I realized that the characters in them don't ever have the kind of life I'd want to have to live. Love their stories, but wouldn't want to be them...I wonder what that says about me??? BUT, having said that, if I could be a fly on the wall of Manderley, so I could watch Maxim, his new wife, and Mrs. Danvers, that might be fun...or really really scary... :)
