Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Memorable Secondary Characters
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is Top Ten memorable secondary characters. These are in no particular order.
2. Hagrid from the Harry Potter series.
3. Piglet from the Winnie the Pooh books.
"Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering."
4.From the Princess Bride," My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."
5. Tomas in the Testing by Joelle Charbonneau. You just can't tell what he is up to. Is he a good guy or a bad guy?
7. Lazarus Long in Robert Heinlein's The Number of the Beast. He appeared as a lead character in other novels, but in this one he plays a secondary role. He steals the spaceship that's capable of time travel and goes back in time to rescue his mother.
8. Herr Silverman from Forgive me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick. Herr Silverman talks him out of suicide. He brings Leonard back to his house with him and talks to him and shares experiences with him in an effort to help him to deal with what's going on with him until he can get professional help.
10. Officer Ricky Haines from Linwood Barclay's A Tap on the Window. He's creepy. "He seems nice enough until he does something like feel you up." He sort of plays good cop to his partner's angry bad cop. But the thing is, in reality he is not a nice guy. To find out just how bad, you'll have to read the book. Any more here would be spoilers.
