Today on the book club, let’s talk about our favorite fictional dads!
Being as it’s Father’s Day and all.
My dad is, of course, not fictional but he is my fave! He can crack me up and then make me all teary-eyed in the span of a couple of heartbeats. He gives the best hugs, tells the corniest jokes, and has the most tender heart for Jesus. He was my first hero and is THE ultimate standard in my mind for the voice of Gandalf. I mean, seriously, that was a deal breaker for me when the first LOTR movie came out. Fortunately, Ian McKellen does a really good imitation of my dad 🙂 My dad is a man of great wisdom and great integrity, of great humor and great compassion. I love talking Harry Potter with him or watching a new TV show that he’s discovered together. I’m pretty sure he’s also the world’s best Poppy! My nephew sure thinks so anyway 🙂
But what about fictional dads in literature? Who are some of your fave fathers from books?
My list absolutely would include:
- Clark Davis from the Love Comes Softly series
- Pa Ingalls from the Little House books
- Mr. Bennett from Pride and Prejudice
In more recent fiction (lol), I would add:
- Reese Mitchell from A Twist of Faith (by Pepper Basham)
- David Stoltzfus from The Bishop’s Family series by Suzanne Woods Fisher
Now it’s your turn to talk 🙂 Tell me your fave fictional book dads on this Father’s Day!
P.S. – My brother (who is also one of my fave dads in life) tells me my Sunday Book Club title picture is creepy. What do you think?
