The Great Wednesday Compare #7- Hermione Granger VERSUS Little Red Riding Hood

The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Hermione Granger VERSUS Ron Weasley), with a final score of 4-3 was Hermione Granger.

Interesting voting process last week. Hermione fans burst out the gate, then either Ron fans were slow to follow or he picked up sympathy votes. I agree that Ron comes across as a very human character and that his family is pretty interesting. I was somewhat intrigued that a couple of Ron's fans said they were voting for Ron from the books, not the movie. I wonder why. How do you feel about Rupert Grint's portrayal?

Vote in the comment section below before August 31st: Who is the better character?

I have to complain that this isn't a very fair comparison. My vote is going to go to Hermoine Granger, but only because over the course of 7 (long) novels, her character is so much more developed than that of LRRH. Who knows what LRRH could have become, had she been given 7 novels?

I'm voting for Hermione for the same reason.

I voted for Ron last week, but am changing to Hermione this week. Can't go with LRRH. Not the brightest bulb in the lamp. Hermione would've figured out in an instant that it was the wolf and not her grandmother in the bed, even though that creep was wearing granny's nightcap and nightgown.

This one is hard to pick, John. I'm going with Little Red. She's been around for centuries and has been reincarnated in so many different guises. She's come a long way from the naive little girl used to frighten children not to wander off into the forest, though she served her purpose then. I think she'll continue to inspire writers for many more centuries to come.

Going with Hermione on this one. Mainly for the same reasons as Kate.

I'm going with Red. She's an enigma. Was she really going to Grandma's house? And just what was in that 'basket of goodies'? And why the red hood, hm?

LRRH had no clue, in fact she must have been a stereotypical blond. LoL!

I have to go with Hermione, she would have figured out it was the Wolf right away and cast a spell on him.

Definitely Hermione! Red was little more then a pawn.

I am with Little Red Riding Hood. Mainly, becos I have written couple of poems about her and the big bad wolf. She is more than what meets the eye.

At first, I was going to vote for Little Red. She's been around for ages and will likely continue to be introduced to children. However, after reading everyone's comments on Hermione, I'm going to have to stick with her. Smart girls all the way!
