Follow Me Friday (#36)

Thursday, June 14, 2012



This is the day of the week where we get to know each other better by answering a question devised by our lovely hostesses Parajunkee & Alisoncanread. We also gain new followers by joining each other's sites via GFC, so please let me know if you're a new follower. And now for this week's question....
 
Q. Happy Father's Day!  Who is your favorite dad character from a book?
 
A. Yeesh.. I just went through my read list and didn't see too many father's that I just loved.  It seems anymore in most young adult book the parents are missing.  Convenient to the plots that's for sure.  I am going to pick Mr. Bennet from Pride and Prejudice.  This is a man who is not rich and has five daughters who must be married off.  Yet he accepts each daughter how they are.  He probably should step in more but I like how he just let's them live their lives.  I love how he wants Elizabeth marry who she loves... not just someone out of convenience.

My review of Pride and Prejudice.

What father did you pick?

  5. Love your pick. I'll be honest and say that I haven't read Pride and Prejudice before, BUT I have seen the movie. I think the dad is okay.

  7. Hopping through. I thought about Mr. Bennet too. I love him. It's interesting though that P&P seems to emphasize that he's not always the best father. But no one really is.
