Maxine ponders ...

... Favourite literary heroes.

Do I have any? I was fond of Athos in The Three Musketeers. And of course Captain Ahab - for his single-minded pursuit of his vocation.

  1. First one that comes to mind would be Philip Marlowe. A quick list, in no order, and I know for a fact I've left out many that could have been on it:

    Philip Marlowe
    Lazarus Long (Heinlein's Future History novels)
    Lije Bailey (Asimov's robot mystery novels)
    Jack Flowers (Paul Theroux, Saint Jack)
    the Kid (Samuel R. Delany, Dhalgren)
    Jason Bourne (Ludlum's thrillers were much better written than most in that genre)
