Weekend Question






Weekend Question is a fun way to get to know my followers. I am also excited to hear your answers!





Weekend Question:


Do you prefer a Male or Female protagonist?








I prefer a female, but that's because I can relate a tad more then to a male.  I can say that their are more Male protagonists on my top 20 characters that I love.

It depends, female in all other books, but when it comes to fantasy I need a man

I kind of agree with what you said, 'cept I don't know too many...

Not off the top of my head, anyway.

I think the female...only because while I can fall in love with a male character, I normally dont want to be them...:P

I prefer a female. It's weird for me to be in a guy's head, because I spend the whole time thinking, "Guys that age don't think/say/do that!"

Summer Ross said...

I usually prefer female in both reading and when I'm writing.

Female because I can relate better.

Meredith said...

Like most everyone, I just relate better to a female MC. But it's not a dealbreaker.

I guess I have never really thought about this. I guess it doesn't matter to me as long as the book is well written....

I feel the same way as you. I prefer female because I can relate more. Cool meme, I'll participate a little later today... or next week for sure! I'm your newest follower.

Female, I won't read anything from the males perspective.

Hey Liz, new goodreads friend. Great blog you have here! In romances I prefer the protagonist to be female, so that I can fall in love with the hero right along with her. However, it's hard for me to find protagonists I like. In Outlander, Claire came close, but I still liked Jamie better. In Twilight, Bella annoyed me. I did like Katniss in The Hunger Games though.

I absolutely love switch narration between the male and female lead within third person. I've read a book with a two females switching off and it was tough to discern the difference at first. At least if it's male and female I can play with tones in my head easily.


Great question!!

I like both male and female protagonists, so long as they're interesting characters, but if I had to choose, guess I'd go with female. It's just easier for me to relate to a female, but I also hold them to a higher standard. Don't want them embarrassing the whole gender! *L*

female! But I can't stand weak male characters. So if there's a love interest, he better be amazing! :)

Chazz said...

I am happy to read both. So long as the story is good I can get into the head of a male or female lead pretty easily.
When writing I do it from a female lead though as I tend to write what I know.

I apparently have more books that feature females... Some of my most fun reads are the ones written by Rob Thurman in her "Leandros" series, books written by Butcher (Harry Dresden series), John Levitt's series and Anton Strout's "Simon Canderous" are all males to name a few so guess for me it just depends on what author am reading at them moment...
I do agree can relate to female characters more, and would love to be a Jill Kismet, Kate Daniels, Cat Crawfield, Alex Craft or Anita Blake myself!

Hi, good question! I am more interested in the challenge or big question than in whether the protag is male or female.
It is curious to me, that although I'm a woman I often write male characters. I think it has something to do with being close to my brother, and also because he has 5 boys and I have two sons!!!

brizmus said...

Great question! I think that, in general, I prefer female protagonists, but when I really like a male protagonist, they are always worth far more than any one good female protagonist!

Jenny N. said...

I prefer female protagonists well because I'm a female and I feel like I might be better able to relate. I think about 95% of the books I read have female protagonists.

GMR said...

I'd say female is my top pick as well...but it truly depends on the book, the writer, the story....I mean there are some really good male leads out their too. Perhaps I should call my choice a draw... *ponders*
