The Great Wednesday Compare #7- Marilla Cuthbert VERSUS Dexter Morgan

The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy VERSUS Marilla Cuthbert), with a final score of 6-5 was Marilla Cuthbert.

Morag, while she put up a good fight, couldn't take down the no-nonsense Marilla. I'm a fan of Morag, but like a few of you said in the comments last week, I had her mixed up with another Laurence character. No, not Hagar from the Stone Angel (as I'm the last Canadian left to read that one), but Vanessa from A Bird in the House! I wonder if the confusion about her characters says anything about her writing? Regardless, I still would have voted for Morag last week.

Moving on. Vote in the comment section below before October 12th: Who is the better character?

Could never get into Dexter. Found him too idiotic. So I'll vote for Marilla again. Interesting pairing though!

I've only read the first Dexter book and hated it. Never seen the show. So my vote stays with Marilla!

Serial killers don't appeal to me, so I have avoided the books and television series.

Marilla for me!

lI just read the first Dexter book last month and really enjoyed it. He's such a unique voice - the good and moral serial killer. Since it looks like it'll be a landslide, I'll throw a vote to Dexter this week, if only because he's shiny and new for me.

Marilla vs the serial killer. I'd still put my money on Marilla.

I've got to go with Marilla again!

Is that Colleen Dewhurst? I always loved her acting! I didn't realize that she played Marilla. On the strength of that, she gets my vote again.

Sorry, Dexter. I read the first book and really liked your creepy, detatched and blackly humorous tone...if you were up against someone else...like Anne Shirley for example...I might have voted for you.

I read all three Dexter books. The first two were great and the last one was awefull.

My vote is for Dex!
