Halloween Meme #3



 
Welcome to my Halloween Meme! Each Thursday in October I will be asking a Halloween or Horror related question.

Feel free to simply answer the question in the coments below OR grab the button to create a post on your blog and don't forget to come back and leave your name/url in the linky.

Check out other blogs for their posts.

Question: Who is your favorite Horror or spooky character (from a book)?

Answer: There are just so many!  I love Nick from The Stand by Stephen King.  Although being a deaf mute has probably effected him emotionally, he is still an upstanding person and honorable.  I also adore Cas from Anna Dressed in Blood.  No one is cooler!  While nothing supernatural happens in Gillian Flynn's Dark Places, the main protagonist, Libby Day is an amazing protagonist.  She is damaged - physically and mentally, yet she is tenacious, honest, and while not always the most likeable person, I couldn't help but care about her deeply.

I don't read a ton of horror so I don't have a lot to choose from but I would have to say that Cas from Anna Dressed in Blood is definitely my favorite. He's cool and witty and fun and such a smartass!

If you'll count movies too (again my selection is slim) I would have to say the guy Jamie Kennedy played in scream (I cannot remember his name!) He was quirky, funny and I loved all his "rules".

Ok I am going to list my favorite bad guys but not really from horror books: Trash Can Man from The Stand! He was so compelling yet simple. I loved Doc the Zombie from Dead of Night by Jonathan Maberry! It creeped me out that he didn't want to do it, was aware, but couldn't do anything about it----killed me!

Anna from Anna Dressed in Blood.!

She's wild and crazed but sad all at the same time.

I love these quotes:


" She's standing above me, the goddess of death….." (pg 77)

"Instead I find a ghost with the strength of a storm…………Persephone back from Hades, or Hecate half decayed." (pg 84)

@kim - yeah...love him. I loved Jamie K. in Scream as well.

@Felicia-Trash Can Man! Haven't thought of him in so long! Did you see the movie? He was great.

@Karen-Anna is very compelling...tragic and her story is bittersweet.

Lord Loss from The Demonota series by Darren Shan. It's been years since I read the first one, but I can't forget the image of Lord Loss playing with the main characters dead and bloody family like puppets. Talk about a strong image.

I'm with you on Nick from The Stand. Just love him! And although he's a minor character, I really love Bubba from Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire Series.
