What 2 literary characters would you like to have dinner with?

My choice would be Raskolnikov (Crime and Punishment) and Victor Frankenstein. They could argue about what constitutes a crime. And debate how far you are responsible for your actions and the consequences that flow from them. That's my idea of fun...

This is a hard one, but I would have to say Anne Rice's Lestat, and Mary Stewart's Merlin

Needless to say that would be rather intresting, as long as I don't end up becomming dinner

Well, I guess I'd have to say Hercule Poirot, brought to us by Agatha Christie, and Robert B. Parker's Spenser. They are both private investigators. Lol.

I would invite Clarisse McCellen from Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I'm not sure about the other I would have to think for a while.

Even if I invited The Underground Man to dinner I doubt he would show up.

Hannibal Lector would be an interesting guest for dinner and Albus Dumbledore.
