So, I tend to be vastly indifferent to most protagonists. Most authors seem to play their protagonists relatively conservatively, with most genres having one or two protagonist types that just have taken over. Much like weeds! Urban fantasy has its tough badasses, epic fantasy has its naive young heroes, romance has its virginal pure heroines, science fiction has its badass professors/engineers/practical people, etc. And mostly they all meld into one undistinguishable mass of boring in my head.

And this goes twice as much for first person protagonists. And yet, why did I like the first-person tough-badass heroine in Feed so much? Because I got a better sense of her voice from the blog posts she wrote in the text, because I'm so used to getting to know people through blogs that I felt comfortable with it. If I was ever wondering whether I was truly a child of my generation, I'm not now XD
