5 Fictional Characters I'd Love to Have Coffee with ...


Have you ever read a book and think that this character or that would be a hoot to meet in real life?

Now I have not read all the books I want to read but I have a long list of fictional characters I'd love to meet.

This includes Gandalf, Darcy, Heathcliff, Odd Thomas, Scout Finch, Dream, Severus Snape, Ron Weasley, and so many more.

(I'll pass up a chance to meet a certain sparkly vampire, thank you very much).

But to narrow it down, I have here 5 fictional characters I'd love to have coffee with.

A couple of them are not human and will most likely not be allowed in any Starbucks branch but I'll still invite them for a good conversation over a cup of steaming java.

1. Death (the Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett)

Death in the Discworld Series is perhaps one of the most interesting characters I've had the pleasure of "meeting." He may be described as your typical Grim Reaper but he is actually a very nice fellow.

For a soul collector, I mean.

I reckon he'd be a wonderful companion for discussing the many strange and indubitably human things that humans do.

Death would be a fun coffee date if I am having some questions that are philosophical in nature but only in the mood for gnomic and witty answers.

2. Anathema Device (Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett)

I like Pratchett, sue me.

Actually, I'd rather you don't.

I'll need to have coffee with Anathema Device first so that I can ask her if this imaginary litigation would result in my favor.2

Aside from the fact that she has front seat view to the future, Anathema is one of the fictional characters I'd love to have coffee with because spending some time with a wise and no-nonsense woman is essential.

In my opinion, anyway.
