Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is ‘Top ten characters I would want with me on a deserted island ‘.
This stumped me a bit; I tend to remember the settings and plotlines from the books I love; but, unless they are really iconic, the characters don’t tend to stay with me as long. Plus, all the best books are about miserable, troubled people and who wants to be on a desert island with someone like that?! So, I really had to rack my brain to come up with this list and on another day it might be completely different.
Viggo Mortensen is very good looking, and Aragorn is the kind of self-sufficient, live of the land type man who could help protect us from any danger,
Along the same principles, another character with great survival skills and a kind, loyal heart. Plus he’s pretty easy on the eyes too.
3. Homer Wells from The Cider House Rules
Just because it’s one of my favourite books and it would be fun to hang out with the main character from it. He’s also got a bit of medical knowledge, which might come in handy (although hopefully no-one would be getting abortions on my desert island!).
Because they could be together on my island, plus they are pretty resourceful and well travelled.
For her knowledge of zoology; she could help with any animals we encountered on the island.
We’d never have to clean or tidy as she could do it all by magic, plus she’d have everything we need in her carpet bag.
Simply because Richard Armitage was so gorgeous in the TV adaptation of the book. This is my suggested ‘pure hotness factor’ entry.
The island wouldn’t be home without a pet dog.
She’s a fantastic cook and could whip up delicious food from whatever we could find on the island. Plus she might bring her cute boyfriend, Shane, along as a bonus island resident.
Who would you want to be stuck on a deserted island with? What criteria did you use to make your choice?
