9. Atticus Finch of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. In his 50's, Atticus is a lawyer in a small Southern town
during the 1930's. For the time and place he lived in, Atticus is a remarkably progressive thinker.

I wonder sometimes if Atticus is in Al-Anon ( :silly:), because he sure works a kick-butt Al-Anon program. Ever notice how many times in the novel Atticus says of some family or individual, "That's just their way," or something similar?

(2) Huckleberry Finn. Discovered him when I was in junior high. Huck was so...genuine. Yes, I know he was a good liar, constantly making up aliases and backgrounds for himself as he traveled. But as the narrator, he is always very straight with the reader.
