The week's The Book List Meme, hosted by Rebecca at Lost in Books, is asking for the three best/worst sidekicks for a hero.
Dr. Watson of the Sherlock Holmes books is perhaps the most helpful of all sidekicks. Really, would Holmes even have thought of those answers if Watson hadn't been asking the right questions?
Ok, so maybe Fagin isn't really a hero, but I can't help but like the old guy. Granted he took horrible advantage of all of those orphan boys. Still, he did give them a place to live and food to eat and he really did care about them. But he would have been nothing if not for The Artful Dodger.
Speaking of heroes who would be nothing without their sidekick, Stephanie Plum needs a whole battery of sidekicks--Ranger, Joe Morelli, Lula and even Grandma Mazur who was my personal favorite.
Who would you pick as the best or worse sidekick?
