This week marks the tenth anniversary of the end of Friends, which is, basically, the only sitcom I've ever really fallen in love with. In college my best friend/suite-mate/eventual roommate Bethany had the entire series and we watched it endlessly. I'm usually not a fan of sitcoms at all, but Friends is different. Since I'm feeling nostalgic about the fact that it's been TEN WHOLE YEARS since it ended, I decided to post about my favorite friendships in literature.
Scout, Jem, and Boo Radley in To Kill a Mockingbird
Runner-up: Scout, Jem, and Dill, especially the movie version of Dill.
Jess and Leslie in Bridge to Terabithia
Anne Shirley and Diana Barry in Anne of Green Gables
The real-life friendship between Ann Patchett and Lucy Grealy, portrayed in both Truth and Beauty and Autobiography of a Face
Johnny Wheelwright and Owen Meany in A Prayer for Owen Meany
Gene and Phinny in A Separate Peace
