Have you ever read a book and wished that you new more about one of the supporting characters? Here are the characters that we wish had their own books so that we could learn more about them and get their backstories. What supporting book characters do you with had their own books?
Ben Corman from I am Legend by Richard Matheson (Zach H.)
As the main antagonist to Neville, the last human, Ben is determind to turn Neville into a vampire. It would be entertaining to see into the mind of a character who sits outside, taunting the main character.
Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling (Megan J.)
Let's be real: those boys would have died in book 1 without her. She is such a strong an intelligent character that I would really be interested in rereading the whole series but from Hermione's perspective.
Neville Longbotton from the Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling (Mason S.)
Because Neville has a better character arc than Harry.
Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling (Sam O.)
Because she always saw through the BS and knew what was real. I also like her "devil may care" attitude.
Will Teasle from First Blood by David Morrell (David R.)
The small down sheriff in the David Morrell novel is a complex character in his own right - a separate novel about his earlier days (in the Korean War perhaps) would be interesting indeed.
Count Olaf from A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket (Sam O.)
It would be interesting to see how he followed the Baudelaire orphans to closely.
