The 101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived ...

How much you are likely to enjoy this book largely depends on how you feel about the characters listed within. Whether you agree with the writers on just how influential the characters are is open to debate. Readers may well think of other characters not listed they wish had been included in the book.
With several books already written on real life influential people, it’s an interesting question to raise and debate as to why we should need fictional characters as role models at all, including how and why they become so celebrated and valued in modern pop culture.
It’s a light read, entertaining, enjoyable for the most part and humorous in places.
Ideal for taking along on a journey when there won’t be much time to read and short articles are preferable.
It has a good take on my favorite character: Batman. To quote directly from the text: “Giants still walk the earth”.
