Live Poll: IMDb Poll Board Favorite Literary Characters

Tell us which character from a book, of any time era or genre, is your favorite! If there's not an image of the book's illustration of the character on IMDb, you can add one somewhere or use an image from a movie. And if there's no image of that, don't worry, we'll figure something out!

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls043820656/

I think it would be helpful if you also add the name of the book in each option.

Is there still a room for a pick of mine? 

Although, to be honest, it's a hard one. ACT_1 already picked Sherlock Holmes... To be honest that still leaves me with a tad too much possible choices: Hannibal Lecter, Francis Dolarhyde, James Bond, Karlsson, Captain Vrungel...

Oh, yes, there's plenty of room!  Hmm, I like James Bond the best of those... :)

NarniaisAwesome,

My favorite author is Isaac Asimov. I have over 100 of the over 400 books he wrote.

My favorite collections of short stories are I, Robot and The Complete Robot.

My favorite character is Dr. Susan Calvin.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Calvin

Dr. Susan Calvin is a fictional character appearing in Isaac Asimov's Robot series of science fiction short stories. She was the chief robopsychologist at US Robots and Mechanical Men, Inc., posited as the major manufacturer of robots in the 21st century. She was the main character in many of Asimov's short stories concerning robots, which were later collected in the books I, Robot and The Complete Robot.

Sadly, the film I, Robot (2004) ruined my favorite charter by making her the love interest of Will Smith's character Del Spooner.

My suggestion: Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou) from Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code (2006)

Your is list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls043820656/  is non-public. I will nominate Keira Knightley ... Elizabeth Bennet as a standard bearer in Pride & Prejudice (2005). As it would be a gross omission, otherwise I would probably go with a John Irving character, like Homer Wells or Garp.

Perhaps Oothoon from Visions of the Daughters of Albion, by William Blake. It's a poem but it's also a whole book; it's a book-length poem.

But I don't know; this is a really difficult question for me. It could also be:

Sula from Sula, by Toni Morrison

The narrator in Drown, by Junot Diaz 

Anna Wulf from The Golden Notebooks, by Doris Lessing

Atticus, (or Jem or Scout) in To Kill a Mockingbird (easy image-wise)

Molly Bolt in Rubyfruit Jungle, by Rita Mae Brown

James Leer in Wonder Boys, by Michael Chabon (this was made into a film - a really good film - so I could easily get an image)

Anais from Henry and June (also made into a film)

...And all this does is make me think of more, like I'm just starting to open a treasure chest, stuffed full. I'll think on it and get back to you with something more concrete. : )
