Across the Fictional Divide: Best Friends

From the bizarre literary match-up department, the Huffington Post pipes up with an especially silly one: “Book Characters Who Would Be Friends in Real Life.” Oh-kay.

So we have Captain Ahab from Moby Dick and Heart of Darkness’s Kurtz chilling together because they’re “two tyrants driven by their desires who are absolutely fixated on a place,” and Lisbeth Salander from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo hanging with Libby Day from Gillian Flynn’s Dark Places. “Can’t you see,” asks HuffPost, “these two saboteurs working together to take down rapists, murderers, and thugs?”

Ummm… yikes?

The full piece is here.
