It's Friday again, which means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
- Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
- Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Pedantic Phooka and Drying Ink.
- Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
- Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
- Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
- If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
- If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
- If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
I'd say that I want the villains to win in pretty much any Orson Scott Card novel, but that's only mostly true. While his protagonists (especially recently) have a tendency to be insufferable jerks, some of his earlier novels have modestly sympathetic main characters. One that I will single out for some opprobium is Folk of the Fringe (read review), in which the main characters are odiously sanctimonious Mormons living in a post-apocalyptic world. If Card had not exposed himself as an intolerant gay-bashing statist, I'd think that Folk of the Fringe was a parody intended to show how awful rule by Mormons would actually be. Sadly, it seems that he was actually serious. But to get back to answering the question at hand, I just can't think of any "heroic" Mormon character in the book that I don't want to shoot in the head and leave for the vultures.
