My favorite hero is Noah Calhoun from The Notebook. What a courageous man who truly loves his wife. He reads her their story day after day after day to help her remember their life together as she has Alzheimer's. And he never gives up, even at the end when he comes to her and crawls into her bed, holding hands as they slip away peacefully together. Who wouldn't want a man that devoted to his wife? He's number one in my book.
My favorite heroine, even though she has her flaws and lost her hero in the end, is Scarlett O'Hara. She's sassy, she knows what she wants and goes for it, even though not quite in the right way. You can't help continuing root for her.
Who are you favorites?
