One More Thing: What literary character would you like to be?

I would love to be Edward Cullen of the “Twilight” series. I instantly connected with Edward when I saw how he was a traditional romantic at heart; I view myself in the same way. And the idea behind being a vampire (at least in Stephenie Meyer’s world) intrigues me. You never age, and you have super speed and strength. No need to sleep or eat, so you’ll never get tired and can work quite literally 24/7.
– Juan Paolo Chamorro, Williamstown


Scout from “To Kill a Mockingbird,” because I would want to be someone who always saw the best in people. I loved her spirit, her independence and her relationship with her father.
– Maureen Lewandowski, Collingswood


I’d be Tyrion Lannister from “Game of Thrones,” because I think he made the most of a very difficult situation in his life and did whatever he could to do what he thought was right.
– Karan Hiremath, Columbus


Odysseus from Homer’s “Odyssey.” He is a classic example of a literary hero and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to achieve his goals.
– Joe Antonakakis, Voorhees


Bilbo Baggins from “The Hobbit.” He was able to prove to an entire world that one person can make a difference. He also went on some pretty awesome adventures.
– James Castorina, Marlton


I’d be Robert Langdon from “The Da Vinci Code.” He lives a thrilling life (albeit dangerous and sometimes scary), following traces, cracking codes and solving mysteries. Sounds exciting!
– Laura Bader, Moorestown


I would be Nancy Drew. I love mysteries and putting together all the information to solve them.
– Katlyn Mogavero, Cape May


I love Alex Cross. He is a modern-day Sherlock Holmes. He was born in the country and raised in the city of Washington, D.C. and is a detective and therapist. He is also a family man with five children and his 93-year-old grandma living with him. This character is made to be very smart, strong and therapeutic. He’s a hero but does have flaws.
– Shelena Gant, Camden


I would want to be Miss Marple from the Agatha Christie mystery stories. Miss Marple is an elderly British woman living in the mid- 1900s who is able to solve murders and other crimes through her unparalleled understanding of human nature and her ability to read the people around her. I would want to have that understanding and insight into the world. Plus, I would get to be a cool, crime-solving genius who drinks a lot of tea.
– Emily Whitley, Mount Laurel


If I could be any literary character, I would be Tom Sawyer. He had amazing adventures and always seemed to land on his feet.
– Brenda Kennedy, Williamstown


I would want to be Claire from the “Outlander” series. Claire is smart, charming, strong, driven and stubborn. She’s also loving and romantic. And she gets to time travel. Because the series doesn’t fit one specific genre, Claire gets to be multidimensional. She’s a wife, lover and a mother, but she also gets to go on adventures with Scottish Highlanders in 1743, be a combat nurse during World War II and study to become a doctor.
– Aimee Fischer, Pitman


Atticus Finch from “To Kill a Mockingbird,” because he stood for what he believed in and zealously defended his client, even in times of resistance.
– Sasha Katsnelson, Cherry Hill


I would like to be Winnie the Pooh, because he is blissfully unaware, plus he eats honey and sleeps all day.
– Kathleen Monahan, Audubon
