Book Memes

I obtained a list of book meme questions from http://book-memes.livejournal.com/ and on days when I don't have a book review or thoughts on a book to post, I will answer one of these questions. Please feel free to post your own answers to the question in the comments!

First Question: Which fictional character do you identify with and why?

My Answer:

The answer that always comes first in my mind is Jo March. I read Little Women when I was young and it was a very influential book for me. I remember feeling vividly whatever Jo was feeling, outrage at Amy, responsibility for her family, confusion about Laurie. Jo was exactly the kind of person I wanted to be and who I felt I resembled at heart. Like her, I fought with my sister, loved to act, loved to read and write, hated clothes, liked being outdoors, and was bad at pretending to be someone I wasn't. I've always thought that Jo and I would have gotten on very well.
