The Great Wednesday Compare #8- Tom Sawyer VERSUS Lady Macbeth


The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Tom Sawyer VERSUS Holden Caulfield), with a final score of 4-2 was Tom Sawyer.

What a bunch of phonies. Tom Sawyer, really? Nah, I'm just kidding. I realized that I was about to say, "Holden Caulfield, you really have to love him or hate him" when I realized that I was slightly ambivalent. I remember getting about half way through Catcher in the Rye, when I was becoming frustrated with all the whining. Then when I realized that I had a touch of Caulfield in me, and had a whole lot of Caulfield in me as a teenager, I warmed to him. Though, with all the psychopaths that seem to be drawn to the book, it's a hard book to admit to liking. Anyway.

Vote in the comment section below before Feb 1st8th: Who is the better character?

Good compare! Lady Macbeth, absolutely. You can't top her for fierceness.

Since you put the question as who is the better character I have to go with Lady Macbeth. Out, out damned Tom!
