Question of the day.

What was the first book that made you feel like you really identified with the protagonist?

My answer:

Don’t know if it was the first, but it was definitely the book that made me identify with the protagonist the most of all books, and it’s the Emily of New Moon series. Which I actually wrote about on here before quite often, for example in the context of my name change, as I changed my name to Emilia at least partly because of Emily of New Moon. We aren’t totally alike of course – that would be scary – and also have a lot of differences, but still it’s such an unbelievably relatable character to me – and the whole series really, not just Emily herself – and has been over the years, it’s crazy!

What was such a book for you? Do you still identify equally strongly with the protagonist, or has it changed over the years? πŸ™‚

  1. Lucky Santangelo, from Jackie Collins’ Chances. Foul mouthed, fiery temper, the daughter the father wished was a son…So she rebelled against him in every possible way, all the while loving and respecting him very much but trying to be her own person.

    Yeah, I was like 13 at the time, but that character still rings true to me all this time later. As the books went on and Lucky got older, I started to think she was getting to be a little bit of a ‘fuddy duddy’ what with spawning and such. LOL. Oh, to be such a snotnosed young thing again that I could view it that way.

    P.S.
    For any fans of the series, I am not, nor have I ever, been a murderess, I just liked the character’s other traits. Just saying, don’t want to be mislabeled as someone who is in favor of murder.

    1. Oh, how great that you can still relate to Lucky years later! I mean of course not great as in that you both share similar childhood experiences which aren’t too positive but that you have such a book character you’ve been able to relate to throughout your life at least to a degree, that’s always a good thing in my view! I’ve never read the series myself so I have no associations at all hahA.
