    The side stories and politics are good too.
    The People's Republic of Haven, the "star nation" Honor Harrington's people are at more or less constant war with, is real easy for a conservative/libertarian type to hate, a real distopic future vision of Marxism.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    I just thought of another favorite fictional character; Paul Atreides of Frank Herbert's Dune series. Paul is another character who went through immense changes throughout the stories. Paul is another "good guy" who does some really terrible things.

    Thomas Covenant from Stephen R. Donaldson's The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant is another good one.

    I'm not a fan of Mr. Bean, but did you know that the actor who portrays him, Rowan Atkinson, made his debut in a serious role in the James Bond movie; Never Say Never Again?

    Another one I had to look up. This one looks like one I would be interested in. It's on my list for after I finish The Hunger Games series.

    This is great for learning about other authors to check out for reading.

    I've got to reveal one of my secret, favorite books.

    "Santa Steps Out"

    This book may ruin Christmas for you, so please approach it carefully.

    In a nutshell, Santa Claus is having an affair with the Tooth Fairy. The Easter Bunny is a Voyeur who follows them around, watching.

    Much depravity ensues.

    I know it isn't on topic, but

    Definitely like Koontz. But I havent read Koontz in over 15yrs. That should give you an idea of which books I read. Never read King. Don't read much anyway.

    Favorite characters are Red Green and Harold

    If you liked early Koontz, you will most likely love Koontz now. He has refined the horror and now developes his characters really well.
