Top Five Literary Dads


There are lots and lots and lots of great fathers in the world, but there are also lots and lots and lots of great dads in the literary world as well. Here are some of my favourites.
1)Eddard Stark The Lord of Winterfell may have lost his head at the end of The Game of Thrones, but his devotion to his children is as strong as the Iron Throne.
2)The Man The father is Cormac McCarthy’s The Road keeps his son safe in the post apocalyptic world while teaching him to keep the fire burning.
3)Atticus Finch Nothing shows true character than a father whom teaches his children right from wrong and stands up for what they believe in like in To Kill A Mockingbird.
4)Arthur Weasley This wizard may wear second-hand clothes, but he teaches his children first rate love and care in the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling.
5)Jack Salmon While I didn’t enjoy the book, Alice Sebold created one of the most empathetic fathers in The Lovely Bones. This father just could not give up on finding his daughter’s murderer.
