In the spirit of the topic, I was tempted to wait to post this until Wednesday >:) But here I am being a good little blogger and posting today.
Top 10 Rebels in Literature:
(in no particular order this week)
1) Lace from As Strange As This Weather Has Been. I just, and I mean JUST, finished this book and Lace fits right into the rebel-osity of the topic perfectly. This is a little overlooked GEM of a book that deserves a more publicity (no I didn't write it, nor did any of my family members..that I know of) Lace gathers her strength to stand her ground - literaly from Big Coal and their Mountain Top Removal mining that threatens to wash her out with every rain as it massacres the mountains her family has called home for generations.
2) Lisabeth Salander from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - does pretty much what she wants when she wants. BUT is still the absolute best at what she does and dependable to finish what she's started.
3) Skeeter from The Help.Imagine such a rebel that would go to college to learn a career rather than get her Mrs. degree. Plus she felt the wrong in her world down to her bones and did something.
5) Hazel and Fiver from Watershipdown. doing a brave thing isn't very 'rabbity' but it was important and despite persecution and ridicule they did what they had to do. And lived to tell about it.
8) Alaska from Looking for Alaska. Again a text book rebel, but for any gender. Anti Authority, anti-establishment, anti-expectation. If she could call it 'anti' something then she'd do it.
9) Holden Caufield. - The epitome of rebel. Too bad a lot of what he rebelled against was his own sanity!!
So there's mine. As always I'll look forward to seeing yours...wait...that didn't sound right...
Here's my top ten, I'll look forward to reading your this week ;)
