My Favorite Character in My Favorite Book



Thank you for giving me the opportunity to write about my favorite character in my favorite book!  We have been assigned to write about our favorite character in our favorite book.  I have a favorite book that someone gave me a few months after my Dad passed away last year.

It is a long book, but I did read it all, and I find that I love it!  My favorite character in the book is Ragnar Danneskjöld.  My favorite book is Atlas Shrugged.  The author of my book is Ayn Rand.  Ayn Rand took over 10 years to write Atlas Shrugged.


Ragnar Danneskjöld is my favorite character because he is heroic, because for example someone in the book described that he has hair of the purest gold, and the most frightening face in the world, and no feeling ever exhibited on his face, and he has no heart!  I don't mean he actually has no heart, but he is merciless!

The author of the book seems to find this beautiful, and I too find it beautiful.  How I know through his actions what Ragnar Danneskjöld is like is he hides with his ship in fjords in the People's State of Norway like a Viking and he is in many ways like a Viking.  His actions show that he is like a Viking and merciless and he has nothing but scorn for Robin Hood.  Also I know through his actions that he takes from the poor and gives to the rich and he is proud of it.


Also more descriptive evidence that Ragnar Danneskjöld is like a Viking is when one of the main characters in the book suddenly realized that Ragnar Danneskjöld's face was far more than handsome and had the startling beauty of physical perfection and hard proud features and scornful mouth of a Viking statue and his smile was like Spring suddenly blossoming on an iceberg.  That was one of my favorite parts.


Ragnar Danneskjöld's main action in the book is that he is like a Viking pirate whenever the Bureau of Global Relief tries to ship help from the United States to any of the People's States of the world who are not doing well and are needy because they are filled with looters who do not have the right philosophy, he attacks the ship and takes its cargo.  Ragnar Danneskjöld plans to give the cargo back to its rightful owners whose government in the United States stole it from them in the first place.


There are many People's States in this world as depicted in this book.  It is a world not exactly like our world but it is a world that we are going to have in the future if people like Ragnar Danneskjöld don't win.  I think he will!

There is the People's State of England, the People's State of France, the People's State of Mexico, the People's State of Turkey, the People's State of Germany, the People's State of Portugal, the People's State of China, the People's State of Argentina, the People's State of Chile, the People's State of Guatemala, and I think there are many more People's States that the book does not mention, but they are all filled with needy people who don't see that existence exists and are mystical and unrealistic and want to loot the rich who are the noble producers and Prime Movers instead of take care of themselves.

Another one of Ragnar Danneskjöld's main characteristics that reveal his character is that he wants to destroy Robin Hood even though Robin Hood died centuries before.  He wants to wipe out every trace of Robin Hood so that humans won't even remember who Robin Hood was anymore!  I don't know why I liked that part so much since I once liked Robin Hood but when I read that I found it very exciting!  Then Ragnar Danneskjöld said that he is the opposite of Robin Hood who robbed the rich and gave to the poor.  Ragnar Danneskjöld robs from the thieving poor and gives back to the rich what the thieving poor stole from them in the first place!  I find this very interesting and exciting.  It just seems so right to me!


I know the assignment says that we are supposed to explain our strong feelings that made us choose our favorite character but I can only say that of all the wonderful characters in this book Ragnar Danneskjöld is the one I most want to be.  I guess you could say that I find Ragnar Danneskjöld is my new role model!  Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to write about my favorite character in my favorite book!
