Top 5 Favourite Literary Fathers
Charlie Swan – Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
When there are vampires and werewolves and everything doesn’t make sense it is perfect to fall back on such a solid character as Charlie. The way he cares for Bella, tell me your heartstring weren’t pulled by this relationship.
Arthur Weasley – Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Whoot…. Weasley’s. Do I really need to explain this choice? He is eccentric and loyal, loving and strong… Who cares about money when you have the relationship the Weasley children have with their father?
Alexander Walker – The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
This is one of the more recent books I’ve read and at the beginning this character would not have made this list. But, through character development and getting closer to Andie we see he is just a flawed human who is really trying.
Mr Song – To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Juggling three girls is tough enough. But when you’re a single father, let’s just take our hats off to Mr Song. The family relationship in this book is extremely strong and Mr Song is the centre of this family.
Mr. Edwards – Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
I realise this is the second Morgan Matson book on this list, what can I say? She knows how to write family relationships like nobodys business. How can this not make the list when the dad is going through this horrible thing and he still considers what is best for the family?
I am eager to know your opinions. Who is your favourite literary fathers? Do you agree with my choices?
