I love both Scarlett and Rhett from Gone with the Wind - they're just so interesting and full of life.

And also Bridget Jones because she's so funny. There are thousands more so I'll post them when I think of them!

One that really pops up to mind has to be the obvious Elizabeth Bennet from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. But I really enjoyed Holden Caulfield character in The Catcher in the Rye.

I usually look at the overall theme of the novel and not usually the characters though- unless it's a light read.

There are books I've read so many times that I feel like the characters are old friends! Here are a few:
Jo March from Little Women
Anne from the Anne of Green Gables series
Scarlett O'hara from Gone With the Wind
Jane Eyre from Jane Eyre
Mrs Danvers from Rebecca (who doesn't love evil and crazy?)
Francie from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
