Last weekend I had my oldest friend stay over at the cottage. Not that she is old – it’s just that we have known each other for all of our lives. We were born next door to each other and our mothers were good friends too.
|Best Forever Friends|
Thinking about my real best friends led me to think about fictional characters and how we befriend them. Some characters will only be our friends for the time it takes us to read a particular novel but others stay with us, in our minds and in our affections, perhaps forever. There are classic examples: Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy. Heathcliff and Cathy Earnshaw. Emma Bovary. Jane Eyre. Rebecca de Winter…
Unforgettable contemporary fictional characters include Rupert Campbell Black (who could ever forget him?!) and perhaps more recently, Christian Grey…?
So which fictional characters would you count as your BFF’s…?
