The Great Wednesday Compare #8- Anne Shirley VERSUS Charlotte A Clavaticus


The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Anne Shirley VERSUS Elizabeth Bennet), with a final score of 7-1 (with one abstaining) was Anne Shirley.

I'm quite surprised by these results. When I was doing the book against book edition, the Austen Mafia discovered my blog and when Pride and Prejudice had its turn, there was almost no stopping them. Record numbers voting. Looks like this time they've moved on to bigger and better things. Zombies, I suspect. Anyway, now that it's safe to go back in the water, I can openly admit, I didn't care for Miss Bennet. Good riddance.

Moving on to the next contender, Anne's up against a non-human contender this week.

Vote in the comment section below before April 19th: Who is the better character?

Voting for Anne again this week!

I discovered both Anne and Charlotte when I was in grade 3 (well, maybe Anne was grade 2) - I enjoyed Charlotte's story when I was grade 3, but Anne has travelled with me through the years until today!

Another vote for Anne!

Charlotte! Charlotte! Charlotte! Not only is she a wonderful character and a remarkably good speller, she completely changed my attitude toward spiders. I still welcome them into my house to this day.

I chickened out last week. Couldn't do it.

I vote for Anne!

I wish I would have seen this last week. I totally would have voted for Ms. Bennett! This week I'm going with Charlotte.

Sarah said...

I vote for Charlotte.

Ok, now I can vote. Anne it is, though I do love Charlotte & her wonderful spelling. And the sadness of the end of her book is almost as great as the end of Anne of Green Gables...fans of both will know what I mean!

Nice match-up! I think I'll have to switch my vote to Charlotte this week though.

Salutations!

"It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both."

Going with Charlotte.

I think I might lose my Canadian citizenship if I didn't vote for Anne. So please check off another Anne vote.

Maybe if you'd put the animated version of Charlotte, I might be tempted. But, nah ... It's still Anne for me.
