March 8: Top Ten Characters Everyone Loves But I Just Don’t Get
We did a very similar topic to this in September, so I’ve purposefully chosen ten different characters that I just didn’t click with. Some of these will cause a debate: let it commence.
1. Tris Prior (Divergent by Veronica Roth)
What’s the deal with her? Seriously? She’s so annoying!
2. Linh Cinder (Cinder by Marissa Meyer)
I really wanted to like this book, but the fact the protagonist was boring and one dimensional was not good.
3. Annabeth Chase (Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan)
I’ve read the first three Percy Jackson novels, but I don’t understand why everyone seems to love Annabeth – she doesn’t seem to have done much.
4. Tamlin (A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas)
I get it, he’s hot, but is that all there is to him? He didn’t seem a character with much substance – hopefully I’ll change my mind when the second book is released in May.
5. Jon Snow (A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin)
Seriously, what’s all the fuss about? I may only have read the first two books but he’s boring!
6. Augustus Waters (The Fault In Our Stars by John Green)
I just don’t like his metaphoric manner and the fact that he talks in riddles.
7. Levi (Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell)
In some ways I liked Levi, but in other ways he was a bit of a douchebag.
8. Charlie Scorsoni (The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky)
Whilst he’s sweet and innocent, I don’t love him as most people seem to.
9. Edward Rochester (Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë)
He creeps me out, I really don’t understand Jane’s obsession with him.
10. Eleanor Douglas (Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell)
I do feel incredibly sorry for the horrific life Eleanor has had, but I didn’t really connect with her on a personal level.
