reader profiles: hila from australia.



Today's reader profile is a total smarty-pants currently enrolled in university seeking a PhD. As intelligent as she is, however, Hila just can't seem to figure out how to stop falling in love with fictional characters... can we help her out? ;)

I'm just dying to know which characters :)

Kristi said...

Me too... I just know it's Rochester over Darcy. No?

mandco said...

HiHi is there any woman out there without a weak spot for Darcy? Love reading the reader profiles!

Octavine Illustration said...

i can't imagine life without mr. darcy. i too would love to know which ones....i guess we too are "curious." great profile...

Hila said...

Hi everyone!
I guess being a Wuthering Heights fan people would expect me to say Heathcliff, but I've always thought he was the kind of guy you'd get a restraining order against. There is of course Darcy and Rochester, however my favourite crush is Mitya from Once Upon the River Love by Andrei Makine. This is an innocent crush though, rather than a lust-based one (he's a bit too young):)

I quite fancy Maxim from Rebecca. Just read a synopsis from Penguins site for Hila's favourite by Makine, I'll be getting it for my plane journey - thanks for the tip.

I met Hila for a comment in another another blog, and inmediately I found that she was a very interesting person and very kind too. Being curious is a quality that we need to keep ever, is the thing that keep us alive and makes everything has sense. Thanks for this post!

HAHAHA I love reading all of your comments! I, unfortunately, dont' fall in love with the characters, but with the writers. Eek.

Loved Roald Dahl for A DECADE.

Thank you, Hila--- we love you! :)

Well done, the interview is superb and she certainly has the character xxxxxxxxxxxx

Julia said...

This little look into her life makes me want to meet her, have coffee and chat about devilishly attractive fictional characters! I'm a Darcy and Rochester fan as well... *sighs*

Thank you for this!

jo said...

i suffer from something similar, it's the helpless-enamour-with-a-member-of-the-band-at-their-gig syndrome. i always always fall in love with some member of the band at their concert... once i even fell for robert smith :S i could swear he was looking straigh at me...

Hila said...

Thanks for your kind comments everyone - especially you Rina! And Julia, we can have cyber-coffee :)

Heidi - I think my hair looked that shiny because of the camera angle!

stacy said...

I love these profiles. And your glasses are awesome.

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
