I've always been drawn to novels about minor characters who finally get their own story.
One of my favorite novels is by Jean Rhys called Wide Sargasso Sea, which shows the tale of the crazy wife in the attic from Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. I love how the author breathed life into this character and really gave her an existence of her own.
Just a few days ago, I picked up a YA novel by Lisa Klein called Ophelia, which is from the POV of Ophelia from Shakespeare's Hamlet. I'm eager to dig into this story...it looks fantastic! I've always wanted to know more about this mysterious character.
What about you--any good stories you've picked up lately that show the POV of a character from another book?
Also, what minor or little-known characters from books would you love to see featured in their own stories?
