Top Five Literary Dads

Standard

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.

Latest Book Review

Standard

Hi everyone!  I am an avid reader and have decided to write some book reviews.  My latest is on Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones.  Check out my Book Review tab for the full review.  Here is an excerpt;

“Don’t worry Susie; he has a nice life.  He’s trapped in a perfect world.”  Too bad it wasn’t a perfect book.  The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold is about 14 year old Susie Salmon who was murdered by her neighbour, a quiet but odd man, Mr. Harvey.  She soon finds herself in Heaven, a place that has all that you wanted on Earth and more, but she cannot help but let go.  She watches her family and friends, grow up and fall apart, grasping onto her memory, albeit too painful for some.  She also watches her murderer continue to go about his day, still thriving off the adrenaline of her death.

Feel free to suggest any good books and I’ll do my best to write a review on here!  Hope you enjoy!
