Ten Characters You Just Didn't Click With
Sometimes the characters are selfish. Often times they're whiney. And occasionally they're just one dimensional, no depth and lacking in emotion. This doesn't always mean that I dislike the book, but it most certainly means that I'm yelling at the pages incessantly.
1) Noah - I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
After discussing this book at book club, I'm starting to think it's not totally Noah's fault. The structure of the book doesn't shine the greatest light on him. The "before" Noah (that I didn't like) shapes the "after" Noah (that I didn't get to know). Maybe he improved later on?
2) Austin Szerba - Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith
"I love you...no, I love you...no, I love you," and around and around and around.
3) Seth Wearing - More Than This by Patrick Ness
Liked the supporting characters more.
4) Brie - The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg
The poor girl died young, and I never really cared.
5) Mal - Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
It's not his fault. I just liked the Darkling more.
6) A - Every Day by David Leviathan
Just didn't like A. At all.
7) Harry Potter - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (specifically) by J.K. Rowling
The only time I wanted the Dark Lord to just get it over with...angsty Harry was not my favorite.
8) Beatrice Prior - Divergent by Veronica Roth
If it wasn't for Four...
9) Peter Pan - Peter Pan by Jim Barrie
The poster boy for selfish.
10) Katniss Everdeen - Mockingjay (specifically) by Suzanne Collins
Harry and Katniss would have made a great, angry duo.
