Who is hands-down the best literary hero, in your opinion? Likewise, who is the best heroine?That's a toughie. The best literary hero, I would have to say, is Jean Valjean from Les Miserables. He is just way too amazing to be passed up by any other literary hero. Enough said.
Literary heroine is a little bit harder. Jane Eyre would be a good choice, of course. Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird is pretty great, too. And I really love both Scarlett and Melanie from Gone With the Wind. And then there's Jo in Little Women. And Margaret Hale in North and South. All great in different ways.
What do you think? Which literary heroes and heroines are the best?
