My 9 Favorite Book Characters

I love characters that I can sympathize and sometimes empathize with. I haven’t read many books in these 19 years but I will list down the ones I know and felt an attachment to.

  1. Cedric Diggory – Harry Potter – For some reason, I like Cedric very much. It might be because Robert Pattinson was Cedric in the movie…
  • Kaz Brekker – Six of Crows – Kaz is a cold but cool character which I fell in love with instantly.
  • Ginny Weasley – Harry Potter – I like her because she is this quiet yet bold girl who isn’t just intelligent but optimistic and caring too.
  • Hercule Poirot – Agatha Christie books – I always imagine Pierce Brosnan as being this detective because of the given features and manners. But I like the way Hercule Poirot’s mind works. It’s just super amusing.
  • Willy Wonka – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Tbh, Willy Wonka has been my favorite character since I was, what? 10? I don’t know why I like him, but I just do. He’s quirky, funny and he has quite an odd mind, don’t you think?
  • Edward Cullen – Twilight- Okay, I know many (most) of you all don’t like Edward Cullen, but guys, he’s a Romantic Vampire! He’s nice, caring, (slightly possessive) but once he falls in love with you, he won’t ever let you go. Isn’t that what every girl wishes for? I see no wrong in loving Edward Cullen.
  • Matilda – Matilda – And just like Willy Wonka, I have loved Matilda since forever. She is a powerful, clever and rebellious kid and she is basically like a role model to the other little kids who think they are too weak to fight.
  • Greg Heffley – Diary of a Wimpy Kid – All I have to say is that this kid is the funniest character I have ever bumped into.
  • Sherlock Holmes – Sherlock Holmes – I’m sure I don’t need to tell you why I like Sherlock Holmes. Everyone loves Sherlock, don’t they? I can’t understand his mind at all…How does he even notice such trivial and intricate things? How can he solve such mind-boggling cases with a snap of his fingers? Nope…I can’t believe him. He’s like another super human to me.

For now, these are my favorite characters. I am trying to read more books and let’s see if I’ll fall in love with the characters or not.

By the way, what are your favorite characters? Do comment to let me know!

Until then,

Peace neighbors,

My Mini Book Review of Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie.

TITLE – Murder at Orient Express. 

AUTHOR – Agatha Christie. 

 

“The murderer is with us–on the train now…” 

 

Agatha Christie is best known for her detective novels and this one has just made my mind blown. Murder at Orient Express is one of the Hercule Poirot series which has now been made a movie and will be releasing this November. I’m a fan of Johnny Depp and a few other actors who are playing the defined parts of many of Christie’s characters so I will definitely hit the theaters to watch how this amazing story has been directed.

 

I won’t give any spoilers since I myself hate it. 

 

The actual story begins with Hercule Poirot refusing a case of a passenger traveling to a three-days’ journey across Europe with him. However, just after midnight, the Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift and by morning, the millionaire Simon Ratchett is found dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times. But what surprises me is that the door was latched from the inside. That’s when Hercule Poirot decides that the murderer would be from among the passengers. The train doesn’t move and the storm gets strong and Hercule Poirot must find the culprit before it strikes again. The middle part is all about interrogation, evidences and the detective’s precise guesses that makes the story even more suspicious. The mysteries that unlocked were unsuspected and pivotal. It evidently ends with the detective catching the culprit but what good would it be if I said who it was, right?

 

The main character is the Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot who is a small man with a head shaped like an egg. Agatha Christie describes him as so in the book; By the step leading up into the sleeping-car stood a young French lieutenant, resplendent in uniform, conversing with a small man [Hercule Poirot] muffled up to the ears of whom nothing was visible but a pink-tipped nose and the two points of an upward-curled mustache. 

 

Poirot has dark hair and green eyes that shines like a cat’s when he is struck by an idea.

I have grown to like Hercule Poirot and his way of dealing with the cases. However, one thing I cannot change is I keep imagining him as Pierce Brosnan. The way he speaks, the way he looks, it’s fitting to the British actor somehow.

 

My favorite part of the story would be the collecting of the evidences from the passengers since it’s the key point of the entire book. It was an amusing book, to be fair. Hercule Poirot’s calmness and patience in solving the case makes the book even-paced.

 

I would recommend this book to crime and mystery readers and to those who love an interesting book with a twisted ending.

 

My rating: 4.5/5

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone book review

Harry Potter and the sorcerer’s stone. 

Okay, so at first I thought, “Why are people always so hyped up on Harry Potter. Why do they keep saying it’s the best book they have ever read.” And believe me, I was quite jealous of Ma’am J.K.Rowling for being such a great author.

However, I managed to command my mind to at least start reading it. If you don’t like it then stop reading but don’t get to conclusions if you haven’t read it yet. So then, I opened the pdf (Since I’m a little broke to buy books at the time) and began reading. 

Trust me when I say, people were right. I was hooked right from the first line. Each word, each paragraph was so interesting and ugh, I finished the book in a week or so. 

Right from the beginning, I had fallen in love with Harry Potter. His thoughts, his emotions all got to me so smoothly. The author’s words had possessed me. She made me enter the world I became so fond of. Only a few chosen authors can make us feel like we are right in front of Albus Dumbledore and the frustration that we can’t do anything to beat the hell out of Draco Malfoy. 

I have to say, J.K.Rowling isn’t just called the Queen/God of writing for nothing. Hats off to her. She gave me inspiration and motivation and she has become my shining example. 

I suggest everyone who still hasn’t read Harry Potter and the sorcerer’s stone, who have the same thinking as me to stop reading this blog, buy that book and open it. 

Well, you gotta come back and like and share and follow my blog but first, read it and tell me your very first thoughts after completing the book. 

Thank you for reading.
