This week's question:
Suzanne: Hmm flawed hero...normally I would go with some old faves but like Fran, I am going to shake it up a little and pick Lindsay Markham from "Addicted" by Charlotte Featherstone. Lindsay isn't physically flawed, but he has an opium addiction, a huge flaw, that has been slowly taking over his life for a long time and in the end almost cost him everything. Lindsay was a great character, and although he does some really really stupid and hurtful things, you can see he is very human and that makes me like him even more, he isn't just a cookie cutter hero.
Annie: When I think of a flawed hero, John Murphy from Sweet As Sin by Inez Kelley always comes to mind. I read this book earlier this year and its been my favorite so far. John is incredibly flawed. I won't say why because I want you to read the book and find out for yourself but, he is the ultimate loner. Only the monsters in his head are his companions. He undermines himself in every way and doesn't believe himself worthy of being loved. He does terrible things that should make me hate him, but I couldn't find myself doing that. Sometimes, with a character so broken, the recovery is just as intense as the act that broke them in the first place.
Angela: This weeks question is a bit hard for me. I couldn't think if anyone. The first flawed hero I can think of is Zhadist from BDB. Not necessarily physically but mentally. Because of his past he continues to struggle with his relationship with Bella and his daughter, Nalla. But I love how he continues to overcome this everyday. Anyone who can admit to his flaws and have the will to try just is a class act hero in my book, fiction or in RL.
Now it's your turn!
