Follow Friday - The First Punic War Started in 264 B.C.

It's Friday again, and this 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 a single Follow Friday Featured Blogger each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. 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.
  2. Follow the Featured Blogger of the week - The Broke Book Bank.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. 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.
  5. 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".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: What is your favorite character archetype(s)?

Smart characters. And by smart characters, I mean characters that the author shows doing smart things. This seems to be a fairly difficult portrayal to pull off well for many authors. All too often, a character will be described as being smart, but will be shown making decisions that are simply not. Alternatively, an author will try to portray a particular character as being smart by simply having them surrounded by characters who are incredibly stupid, so the highlighted character's rather ordinary decision making will seem brilliant by comparison.

But a well-written smart character in a book is a thing of beauty.
