Mine are Joe Gargery and Miss Havisham
Chosen by Maeve Binchy (Nights of Rain and Stars)
Joe Gargery in Charles Dickens's Great Expectations is so decent and so real that you always think you know him. Eager and ambitious for the poisonous Pip, Joe is humble and self-effacing. He makes me cry.
Chosen by John Burnside (The Good Neighbour)
There's nothing more attractive in a character than unshakeable obsession. I love Great Expectations' Miss Havisham because she won't remove that wedding dress, even as she recognises the random nature of her revenge. I was inconsolable when she vanishes into the flames.
Favourites: Lisbeth, Liesel and Rose.
Least: Luce and lots of other annoying characters.
Favourites: Liesel Meminger and 'The Narrator' (trying not to give spoilers!) of the Book Thief. Christopher Boon of The Curious Incident of The Dog in the Night-Time
Least Favourite: Harry Potter, by far. Considering what a wonderful universe J.K. Rowling created, it's quite incredible that she managed to craft such a one dimensional, insipid, obnoxious little **** like ol' HP.
