Let’s Talk Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Smash @ Smash Attack Reads and Kt @ A Book Obsession. It was inspired by Melissa @ i swim for oceans. Each week a question is posed and participants discuss their thoughts and feelings. For a list of upcoming questions, check out Smash’s blog!
This week’s question: If you could be part of one fictional family (book or screen), what family would you choose, and why? Would you choose to be a current family member, or a new one?
The real answer is I wouldn’t want to be a member of any fictional family. Authors put their characters through a lot because that is how you achieve some great character growth. The thing is: I don’t want to go through some of the things that my favorite characters have had to go through!
The answer so that I’m not a stick in the mud and ruining everyone’s fun: I think that I would adore to be a Crawley! I may even be pleased to be a member of the downstairs family. I couldn’t pick a bookish family because no book ever written that didn’t involve some great adversity. The Crawley’s are not without their own trials and tribulations but what a time to live in! There are so many changes going on in the world that I think it would have been quite an interesting time to live in. If I’m going to live during that time, I’d like to do it in comfort.
