5 Types Of Female Literary Voices And The Best Reads They Have To Offer

As a lady, I find that I often unconsciously gravitate to books with female narrators or protagonists. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t necessarily prefer them to male-driven books, but I generally feel far more of an intrinsic emotional connection to female voices than I do to those of men (with the obvious exception of my homicidal spirit animal, Patrick Bateman). I’ve observed that, as with all things, there are certain “types” of female characters (in fiction and in memoirs and biographies) — not necessarily stereotypes, but overriding themes of personality that are in many ways the driving force behind the story being told.

Suddenly I see what it’s all about, bronies! I totally understand how you could love My Little Pony as grown-ass adults.

Many of them are sold on her site … possibly to bronies. Check out my favorites — and yes, it was hard to whittle it down to just 20! [Mari Kasurinen]

Movies may offer you your favorite characters served up live on the big screen, but books allow your imagination to run wild. Sure, they describe details of appearance, and mannerism, and style of dress, but it’s up to you to fill in the blanks. The film versions are often disappointing when they don’t live up to the image in your mind’s eye, but sometimes they’re truly spot-on — like these ladies, who happen to have been plucked from the pages of four books and reincarnated onscreen in overwhelmingly effective ways. They all were given distinct style entities in their respective books, but it’s the movies that made them real, and I have to admit that live action did them more than appropriate justice. After the jump, a series of style inspirations straight out of some of my very favorite pages…
