Hero – Booking Through Thursday

btt button

This week’s Booking Through Thursday question is: You should have seen this one coming … Who is your favorite Male lead character? And why?

The first one that comes to mind is Rhett Butler. While I found Scarlet to be frustrating in her headstrongness, I found Rhett to be the most likable, appealing character. I loved that he was an entrepreneur, that he kept coming back to Scarlet but ultimately stayed true to himself. Has anyone read Rhett Butler’s People?

The only other hero that comes to mind is Ralph from Wideacre. If you’ve read it, you’ll know what I’m talking about. 🙂 If you haven’t read it, let’s just say that the girl he loved tricked him into getting caught in a bear trap and he still managed to escape and survive, though he lost both legs. Oh so trashy and oh so good.

Why is it that I can’t think of as many heros as heroines? I guess this will have to suffice.

What do you think? If you leave an answer or a link in the comments, I’ll pop on over and see what you came up with!

    I had difficulty thinking of leading male characters too. Maybe I just need to reach out and read some books from male perspectives? Don’t know.


  2. joanna

    Yep, I also think it’s time to read some books from the male perspective, I couldn’t think of many either!


  3. Lesley

    Ashamed to confess I’ve not read GWTW. But (from the movie) Rhett would be a definite contender.


  4. Val Gryphin

    I can’t say Rhett would be one of mine, but he is definitely memorable!


  5. gautami tripathy

    Most of us had difficulty in thinking of male characters. Rhett is a good hero material!

    Here is my BTT post!

    Like Lesley, I’m hiding my head in shame and admitting that I’ve never read ‘Gone With The Wind’, I must add it to the ever growing list of must reads. I also found it hard to pick a male character to laud, but I did get there in the end.


  7. Chris@bookarama

    Yep, Rhett fits the hero bill.


  8. Barbara H.

    I haven’t read GWTW either. Rhett in the movie is a little too smooth for me, but he is a likable and finds a way to come out ahead in every circumstance. I haven’t read the other book. you mentioned.


  9. Alix

    I’ve never read GWTW only seem the movie but based on that evidence Rhett is definitely a hero.


  10. Julia

    I love Rhett Butler and GWTW! He good hero 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope you visit me again. Have a good Thursday! Happy BTTs!


  11. Maree

    I’ve read Wideacre, but I don’t remember Ralph! And Rhett Butler fits the bill, but I haven’t read the book yet either.


  12. bethany canfield

    I am sorry that I don’t even know your character!

    hahah! yes…you do have to read “The History of Love”…it is very good.


  13. Trishaj

    Rhett is a good choice. I haven’t read Rhett Butler’s People but it’s on my TBR list.


  14. Susan Helene Gottfried

    Rhett’s a fab pick. But I’d put Belle Watling more firmly behind him than Scarlett. Scarlett was his obsession. Belle kept him in line and provided his power.

    Didn’t you think?


  15. Aria

    I’ve read GWTW but I was never sure about Rhett. I felt bad for him in areas and he was strong but something kept me from loving him. He was an interesting character though. I haven’t read Widearce.

    I noticed a lot of us had trouble picking heros. Why is that?


  16. JLS Hall

    Rhett seems to be on a whole bunch of lists! Mine, too. But if I was reading the book for the first time right now, I wonder if I’d still find him so appealing.


  17. chartroose

    Atticus Finch or Tom Jordache from “Rich Man, Poor Man.” I also like Jamie Fraser from the Outlander series. Yep, he’s probably my favorite. I have a thing for redheads.


  18. Annette

    Rhett Butler’s People is an excellent read for us GWTW fans. It’s in line with the book, though, not the movie, so you’ll see a few “extra” characters if you’ve only seen the movie.


  19. mellymel

    yes to Atticus and to Jeremiah Land in Peace Like a River. 🙂
