If You Were a Book Character, Who Would You Be?

Crap...I was going to say Claire, but it looks like that character has been claimed already...several times...I guess we all want to boff Jamie.

I wouldn't mind being Sookie Stackhouse either, but she's been claimed too.

I'll have to think more on this one...

"This hag, this Reason, would not let me look up, or smile, or hope: she could not rest unless I were altogether crushed, cowed, broken-in, and broken-down. According to her, I was born only to work for a piece of bread, to await the pains of death, and steadily through all life to despond."

"No mockery in this world ever sounds to me so hollow as that of being told to cultivate happiness. What does such advice mean? Happiness is not a potato, to be planted in mould, and tilled with manure. Happiness is a glory shining far down upon us out of Heaven."

To answer the question, I think 'Forrester' from 'Finding Forrester' comes to mind. I haven't read the book nor seen the movie. All I know is that hermit old man who was once a professor lives in a apartment and has retreated from the world. His friends are his books. And some black kids sets out to find him and they both grow to share a bond and learn things from each other.

I can see myself as a (maybe) intelligent old woman who has retreated from the world and decided to leave it alone for a while or forever. And I love to read.

I understood and identified with the characters Lestat and Louis from Interview with a Vampire, but I am not like them at all.

Other than that, I don't think I've ever read a book and found 'me' in it. But some of my favorite characters have been John Coffee (Green Mile - Stephen King) and Moll Flanders (Moll Flanders - William Defoe). I tend to like non-conforming, non-traditionalist characters who are like gold on the inside but with some seemingly serious character flaw to the outside world.

Also a fan of EA Poe but I can't (won't?) identify with any of his characters - except for maybe Poe himself.

i would LIKE to be like rebecca, not just because it's my screen name.

but i am more like the second mrs. de winter.

i would also be:

the mock turtle from alice in wonderland

the water rat from the wind in the willows
*~*displaced yooper*~*
\m/ \m/

master quigley and queen ruby, my puppy loves <3
Ad Magic from the Thom Jones short story "A white Horse" and/or J. J. from the Nick Hornby novel "A Long Way Down".
"Yargo" by Jacqueline Susann. I definitely identified with the main character in this book.
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
probably Elizabeth Bennett.

but only if Darcy looks like Colin Firth!

Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.
I don't have anyone in particular, but I'd probably one of those mysterious, artsy characters who you have to get to know in order to see their true personality.
