Okay, so one of my blogging goals is to write more Character Connections, which is a weekly meme hosted by Jen at The Introverted Reader, because I really really love doing them! But sometimes I can't think of who to be passionate about that week. This I shall overcome, because there's just tons of characters to be passionate about!
Anyway, I've been thinking all day and now I'm a little late blogging about it but I'd like to highlight Finn from Incarceron, a book I've been recently taken with.
I pictured Finn quite ragged looking. Very skinny, haggard, and completely thrashed. He is, after all, living in terrible conditions, in the worst prison conditions you can imagine. He's fighting for his life. He seems very trodden down.
Yet, he strong and brave, with ethics that are amazing given this rotten place in which he's living. He's also very confused, with lots of visions about a different place, either real or imagined. Some people revere him because of this, but he's just plain bugged and torn about it all.
I think this makes for a wonderful dynamic character, not just your normal "hot dude" (which I'm assuming he is and that he cleans up well given a chance!) but a guy with lots of sides to him and many many issues to work through.
I can't even remember how he is physically described, but I'm understanding that there's going to be a movie made soon, and that none other than Taylor Lautner will be playing him. As much as I enjoy this guy, I'm not sure he fits the idea I have of Finn. And it appears that many others are feeling the same way.
Have you read the book yet? Do you think Taylor would work as a Finn?
