The Digital Quill Answers: “Which literary character is most like you?”

Which literary character is most like you?

While I relate a lot to Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series, I must say Jo March from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I have lost count of how many times I read the book, mostly because of Jo. The way she is a writer at heart and struggles to find her place without giving up on her dreams mean a lot to me. What is interesting is that watching her grow up even during the sequel, Good Wives, makes her still resonate so much with me. I read Little Women for the first time when I was ten or so, and since then Jo has remained a character I feel a bond with, even now that I am thirty.

As a side note, I can also say that I loved Winona Ryder’s portrayal of Jo March in the Little Women 1994 movie adaptation! I owned it on VHS before getting it on DVD. The same, I read my French edition of the book so much, I had to throw it away because it had completely fell apart. My parents gifted me a beautiful English edition with both Little Women and Good Wives that I have carefully kept since then. I think it also made for one of the first books I read in English.
