Welcome to Thoughtful Thursday! Thoughtful Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Reading is Fun Again.
This week’s Thoughtful Thursday topic is How do you feel about authors (in a non-fanfiction setting) borrowing other authors characters. For example, there have been several authors who have included Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in their books as main characters.
Honestly, I’ve never really thought about it before. I can’t think of a book I’ve read where this has happened. I guess if the book is well written and the borrowed character stays true to what the original author intended, then I’m okay with the borrowing of said character. If the book sucks and the characters has been horribly changed, then I don’t think I would like that.
What do you think? Do you like it when characters are borrowed?
