I like protagonists! I know not everyone does, but I love rooting for the good guy! This has to be the hardest entry becasue picking just one means picking a favorite book, I have so many favroites it was hard to pick just one. I decided to narrow it down by picking my favorite bull headed and soft hearted female lead, Elizabeth Bennet, from Pride and Pejudice.
She doesn't chase after the rich and handsome Darcy becasue he's rich and handsome. It comes down to finding his character and loving him for who he is, and not how society paints him (unlike the choices of her little sister). That, in my book, makes for one of the greatest love stories of all time.
What do you like in a protagonist?
