The Great Wednesday Compare #8- Tom Sawyer VERSUS Holden Caulfield

The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Huckleberry Finn VERSUS Tom Sawyer), with a final score of 3-2 was Tom Sawyer.

In all honesty, I can't really weigh in on whom I think is better between Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. I remember more about Tom Sawyer and know that I read about him first, so I guess I'd vote along those lines. Though, sorry to say Barb, I've never been into Rush. I know, it's akin to saying I don't watch hockey and I spell colour without a u, but I've just never been able to get into Geddy Lee and co. Their "Tom Sawyer" almost convinces me that I should have voted for Finn. Anyway, while I move into a protective bunker somewhere between Arviat and Bobcaygeon, consider next week's challenger.

Vote in the comment section below before Feb 1st: Who is the better character?

This is easy: Holden. Tom Sawyer's about as sensitive as a toilet seat.

Unlike Bybee, I find this tough. I'm going to stick with Tom Sawyer this week again.

I've actually never been into Rush either, John, so you can relax and come out of your hidey hole now. Rush is just a punchline around our house, which I obviously forgot to fill you in on.

Still, I am going to have to stick with Tom, but only after much deliberation.

I'm not a huge fan of Tom Sawyer, but I am going to vote for him this week based on the fact that I can't STAND Holden Caulfield! I"ve always hated Catcher in the Rye ever since I was forced to read it in Grade 12. Ugh.
