My vote goes to the lead character in Clan Of The Cave Bear.
To me, the award for the most unrealistic female characters in classic novels goes to Dostoyevsky. I've read Crime and Punishment and Brothers Karamozov, and all the women in both novels are completely neurotic! And I don't want to hear comments about all women being neurotic, because even if that's true the Dostoyevsky women are way more neurotic than even the most neurotic real-life woman! <lol> The Dostoyevsky women all need to be put in an asylum and sedated on a long-term basis, all except Raskolnikov's sister who seemed pretty normal but didn't really have much of a part in the story. It didn't even necessarily seem like Dostoyevsky hated women and so made all his female characters evil. It seemed more like he didn't understand women in the least and therefore couldn't possibly create an even remotely normal woman character.
Ok, just my impressions. <grin> Kellie
