I'm curious, Rob; why do you actively dislike Sam?  (And btw, that explains many of your dreamcast selections for Sam...  ;D )

I get liking Adam better, or not liking Sam for Mercy, etc.  But I'm very curious to know why you're set against him.

He just mostly comes across, to me, as selfish and as moody as a teenage girl.  Don't get me wrong, at his core I think he's a good guy.....but he let his issues get the better of him (long before the series began) and he hasn't REALLY been considerate of others throughout the books.

Fair enough.  :) 

I don't find him quite that bad, but it's true that for several of the books, he's been depicted as dealing with his own overwhelming issues.  Which tends to make a person fairly self-absorbed.  So, I guess I can see the point.

Of course, I still  :-LOVE him.  LOL

You have a point, Rob... but as someone who is sometimes overwhelmed by a mere 24 years worth of life... I guess I can forgive Sam for being the way he is after a few centuries.  Especially a few centuries as a werewolf and a doctor.

I know old werewolves aren't fond of change, but that doesn't mean they CAN'T.  He could have sucked it up, more than once, and done something else.
Well, I suspect he had to for the first century or so after he & Bran got changed, didn't he?

My sense is that he sucked it up for the first millenium or so.  The problem is that by the time we were introduced to him, that millenium or so was over.  ;D

What Ellyll said. 
Mercy points out that wolves might not die of old age, but the centuries eventually start to catch up to them and make them crazy.  And she indicates that while Samuel might have been not as right as he was in previous centuries, when she was living in the Marrok's pack, it's only since she left, and he went to Texas, that he seems to be really screwed up.

just because there is reason for his issues doesn't mean I have to like him.....besides, it's not the issues themselves that lead me to dislike him....it's how he handles them....

No, you don't have to like him Rob. We're not trying to convince you.  LOL

I'm not trying to convince you, Rob, and I think your viewpoint is entirely valid.  Since I respect your opinion, I was curious about your thinking in this, and I can see your point, even if I have a different feeling about it.  :-* :D

I like to see what other people think, especially if their thinking is different from mine.  It gives me new ways to look at things.  :)

 :) here's my two cents. For me, Adam captured my heart from the very first page he was on in Moon called. I completely adore him.  :-LOVE :-LOVE

Whilst Sam  :-\ I don't know. I have had to work at liking him. Don't get me wrong, he is a good guy with a good heart but it took me until at least Iron kissed, before I could warm to him.

But any way each to their own. Some people favour Sam, some favour Adam, some favour Stefan.  It's all good  :D
