The Great Wednesday Compare #8- Anne Shirley VERSUS Don Vito Corleone


The winner of last week's Great Wednesday Compare (Anne Shirley VERSUS Frodo Baggins), with a final score of 7-2 was Anne Shirley.

To be honest, I wasn't sure if Frodo was the right guy from Lord of the Rings to pick to challenge Anne Shirley. I'm not a huge Tolkien fan and I blasphemously like the movies better, but wasn't the whole point of that Fellowship that no one character was really more important than the other? Of course, Frodo's the dude with the ring, but come on Gandalf is a standout too, isn't he? And what about Gollum? I'm not sure. For those of you that voted for Anne last week, was there a Tolkien character that would have changed your mind?

Moving on to the next contender, Anne's messing with the wrong man. Or is she?

Vote in the comment section below before May 10th: Who is the better character?

Anne!

(I'm not a huge LOTR fan - books or films - to there's probably not a character there that would beat Anne for me. My sister and I have had some discussions on the topic of Who is the greatest wizard and why - Gandalf, Merlin, or Dumbledore?)

Anne!

I like strong female characters (I often don't think there are enough in literature) so I might have got with Eowyn from LotR. Gandalf also might have made me change my vote.

I'm sticking with Anne this week.

I've not read the Godfather (to be honest,I didn't even know the films were based on a book), so this time around I'll back Anne.

Allison said...

Interesting pairing. I'm sticking with Anne though.

Sarah said...

I've never read the Godfather, so I'll stick with Anne.

Aw, look at him holding a kitty! What a nice man.

But I'll stick with Anne.

Phew, this is easy... Anne!

Anne again for me. I don't know if anyone can beat her.

Nicola said...

I love mafia stuff but I've never read or watched The Godfather. So I'm sticking with Anne.

Now if you'd said Tony Soprano ... oh but that wasn't based on a book.
