While we read a book, we tend to observe each character and after completing it we think of a specific character a little bit more and it is often the central character – perhaps because of their lifestyle or their choice of words or how they are dealing with their lives. Here is a list of the 10 most loved fictional characters from books.

Elizabeth Bennet

Elizabeth Bennet is probably the most idealized character from books, and this character created by Jane Austen in Pride and Prejudice is loved by all. Her character stood out because of his family, her mother whose only concern was to get all her daughters married and her sisters who wanted to get married to a prosperous household. She has her individuality and mindset about gender and class. She was not ready to fall for a man just because her mother considered her as a burden and the man is wealthy.
