Book meme

An interesting book meme from chickenfeet2003:

  1. I list three characters from ten favourite books.
  2. You try to guess what the books are!
  3. I reserve the right to be sneaky and use secondary characters.

  1. Frith, Pipkin, Blackberry
  2. Pastor Williams, Decuman, Lord Stansgate
  3. Bruce (the father), Helen (the mother), Joan (the girlfriend)
  4. Ulysse Mérou, Zira, Arthur Levain
  5. Duncan, Colin, Malcolm
  6. Bendico, Don Calogera, Ciccio
  7. Lake of the biology department, Atwood of the physics department, Captain Douglas
  8. Thorn, Gran'ma, Bartleby
  9. Rupert Potter, Benny Golightly, Selina Potter
  10. Ellen Emmett, Phil Graber, Dr Moreby

To make it easier, they are in alphabetical order by author. Also two of them are graphic novels.

1. is Watership Down by Richard Adams. I want 5 to be Macbeth, but I don't remember Colin... The only literary Colin I know is in The Horse and His Boy.

If number 2 is right, was old Kingers referring to Tony Benn? Never heard of The Alteration; in fact I haven't read a great deal by Amis père.

I only got 1, though I should have known 10.
Am now stealing this, however!

Dogs are characters too! So are gods, as in one of my other choices!

I got 1, 2 and 4, and I'm sure I know 5, but my thoughts keep getting distracted by Macbeth. Definitely borrowing this idea, though.
