Book Blogger Hop Halloween Edition October 28th - November 3rd: The Heinkel He 176 Was a German Experimental Liquid-Fueled Rocket Propelled Aircraft

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: You've been invited to a costume party and the theme is classic literature characters. Who would you go as?

If we are confining ourselves to classic literature characters, then I'd probably go as someone like Nathaniel "Natty" Bumppo, also known as Hawkeye, Deerslayer, Pathfinder, and Leatherstocking, from The Last of the Mohicans and the other Pathfinder novels by James Fenimore Cooper.

Or maybe I'd go as Dr. Victor Frankenstein from Mary Shelly's Frankenstein. I wouldn't go as the monster, for two reasons: (1) I don't have the imposing height or bulk that would be needed to pull that costume off, and (2) Victor is the real monster in the book.

  1. I don't know those characters, but I hope you would have fun portraying them. :)

    Hope you had a good weekend.

    Happy Hopping!!

    1. @Elizabeth: I highly recommend the 1992 film adaptation of Last of the Mohicans starring Daniel Day Lewis. I also recommend the book of the same name.

      Victor Frankenstein is the creator of Frankenstein's monster in the novel Frankenstein. The monster has appeared on screen and in print so many times, that listing them all would be a Herculean task.
