    Winston Smith - Haven't read Dr. Zhivago, and I don't intend to because it ends sadly. But 1984 is epic.

    Zaphod - because he is awesome. Gollum isn't as cool.

    Harry - duh

    Abstain - John Carter books sound awesome, but I haven't read them yet. Didn't enjoy TLTWATW (the movie, haven't read the book and don't intend to because the movie sucked), but Aslan, Liam Neeson, and lions in general are all cool.

    the book is vasstly better than the movie, either one of them. you really shouldn't let a bad movie keep you from reading a classic.
