Ten Seven Most Frustrating Characters Ever
[reading with clenched fists]
1.) Harry Potter in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – I love Harry Potter as much as the next guy, but this book was an angst-fest.
2.) Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games – I’m fairly certain I’m not alone in this.
3.) Katie Fisher in Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult – The Amish girl playing dumb in the face of a very serious accusation. I just didn’t like her and I felt zero sympathy for her. Was I supposed to?
4.) A in Every Day by David Levithan – Though it’s not A’s fault, it would be very frustrating to live a life where your body is not your own. It frustrated me just thinking about it.
5.) Jessica Darling in the Jessica Darling Quintet –By book three, I found her to be incredibly annoying and I was having trouble understanding her actions/choices. Especially quitting her internship after just a few days because she just didn’t like the people.
6.) Dr. Frankenstein in Frankenstein – He lost me when he abandoned his creation because he just couldn’t bear the ugliness of what he created. That did not ring true to me for a real scientist to feel that way. From that point forward, I just wanted to kick him. Team monster!
7.) Greg Hefley in Diary of Wimpy Kid – I rarely find anything redeeming in that book. I support it and buy it and recommend it to students, but I pretty much despise it on a personal level.
…and that’s all I could come up with. I know there were a few others that had me clenching my fists, but I can’t remember them. Maybe reading y’alls posts will jog my memory (grad student brain, I guess).
