Booking Through Thursday: CouplingJumping on the bandwagon
Name a favorite literary couple and tell me why they are a favorite. If you cannot choose just one, that is okay too. Name as many as you like - sometimes narrowing down a list can be extremely difficult and painful. Or maybe that's just me.
Hmm. I think I am coming up with two, although I'm sure as soon as I post this I will remember others. My absolute favorite is Elizabeth and Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, since, well, pretty much everything in that book is about perfect. And a favorite modern literary couple is Gregor Demarkian and Bennis Hannaford from Jane Haddam's mysteries. Their relationship is complicated and sometimes fraught, but feels very real.Posted by Kat at October 23, 2008 02:30 PM
