In honour of Father’s Day 2019, we’re taking a look at fathers, step-fathers, or simply strong male role models in the literary world. Check out our post from last year to read about our favourite literary dads. Characters who act as fathers not only speak to their children in the stories, but to every reader too. We can learn a lot from our literary dads, and there are so many to list, but we’ve picked out our top five life lessons from literary dads.
Read our lists from the personal to the popular and sometimes even controversial. Join the discussion of Top Fives across the different literary subjects. Debate our collated Top Fives and add your own lists in the comments. Whether you strongly agree, disagree, or are simply indifferent to our choices, share your opinions and let us know!
