Father's Day: Memorable Fictional Dads

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Father's day was already this past Sunday, but I thought since I did a post for Mother's day, I should do it this time around as well. On my Instagram, I posted a photo of books that in my opinion has some of the most memorable and great dads as well as father figures in literature.
Atticus Finch : To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Ned Stark : Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin
Oberyn Martell : Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin
Mr. Bennett : Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Arthur Weasley : Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Hans Hubermann : The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
not pictured: the father in The Road by Cormac Mccarthy

Who are some of the memorable fictional fathers to you? 


  1. Nice interesting list! I am intrigued that you put Oberyn Martell in the list but only because all I know about the guy is what I saw on TV and that wasn't much, at least in terms of how fatherly he was. Now I want to read more about his literary version. I know the Sand Snakes adored their father so I'm pretty sure there is more to Martell than what HBO has portrayed.

    1. The Sand Snakes in the books are also much more interesting than the ones on the show. I wish it showed how much Martell was a father figure to many, but in the books, he was talked about a lot more.
