Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters Ever:

Nine and Ten:

gonegirl-gf

Nick and Amy Dunne from Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.  Though I loved the book, the two main characters made me want to pluck them in the eyeballs more than a few times.  Never mind the fact that they are BOTH unreliable narrators, they are also two of the most despicable characters I’ve ever read about.  They deserved each other.

Eight:

Elena from The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith.  This girl has got to be THE most vain and superficial character I’ve had the displeasure of reading about.  She just couldn’t FATHOM some new boy not being interested in her and made it her mission to try and change his mind.  She used her friends, disregarded them, and acted selfishly ALL the time.  I didn’t like anything about her and her vain and selfish nature irritated me.

Seven:

themazerunner-jdAll of the Boys in the Glade from The Maze Runner by James Dashner.  I was super frustrated that NO ONE would answer Thomas’ questions when he found himself in the Glade with his memory wiped clean.  I mean, they all evaded some of the simplest and most basic questions that you would expect ANYONE to ask in his position.  I’m sure they had the same questions so why they wouldn’t say boo to Thomas ticked me off!

Six:

Bill from Crazy For You by Jennifer Crusie.  Talk about CRAZY, this dude was nuttier than a PayDay, with vast and dangerous delusions.  He just could not comprehend the fact that Quinn was done with him and had moved on.  He’d obviously tricked his mind into seeing things the way he wanted to and not reality.  I just wanted him to get it through his head that Quinn was gone…but it was not to be!  YIKES!

Four and Five:

possession-ejViolet and Jag from Possession by Elana Johnson.  AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL.  These characters sucked.  Violet is silly, impetuous, and frankly, she’s not very bright.  Jag is a lying crybaby whom I wanted to slap repeatedly.  Their story is incoherent and sloppy, and their reasoning, purpose and overall existence was muddled and unnecessary.  Nothing these two said or did made any sense, and the fact that they kept repeating their stupid behavior made me want to hurl the book into the trash.  Jag and Vi = A BIG FAT NO!

Three:

Queen Cersei from A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin.  What a devious witch she is.  Manipulative, selfish, conniving, Queen Cersei don’t play.  And you better hope you do not find yourself out of her good graces because she will come for you.  Worst of all is she’ll have someone else do her bidding, so you never know when or how it’s coming.  You best watch out when she’s around.  It frustrates me that she has so much power, yet abuses it so.

Two:

gameofthrones-grmPrince Joffrey from A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin.  This child is UNCOMMONLY CRUEL and the most dim-witted child king ever.  He knows nothing about ruling a kingdom and treats people like poo.  It’s too bad that his every whim will be appeased because the boy is heartless and cares nothing for anyone outside of himself.  He even threatens his Mama y’all!  That’s cause for a beat down where I come from…you just don’t disrespect your Mama!  It frustrated me that this boy ain’t got the sense God gave a gnat, but he is ruler of the seven kingdoms!

One:

twilight-smBella Swan from the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer.  This girl just makes me groan loudly to myself.  UGGGHHHHHH!  So not a good role model for teenage girls, or any girls/women period.  She’s clingy, mewly, pathetic, and beyond obsessive.  So not good traits to encourage.  Her dependance on Edward was scary and it was the most unhealthy relationship EVER.  I fear some of these girls idolizing someone like her.  Oh and did I mention how SELFISH and kind of cruel she was?  Treated poor Jacob like crap on her ever swinging YO-YO.  She is just not someone I’d ever want my future kids to date or befriend.  Boo on her!

  1. I totally agree with you about Elena–so frustrating! And while I did love Gone Girl, I found myself cranky with Nick and Amy so often. I’m also dishing out the Bella Swan hate over on my list.

    • Jade Jade says:

      Nick and Amy are a special kind of crazy. Those two deserve to be together, because I can’t see inflicting them on anyone else. Shakes my fist at Elena and Bella!

  2. Cersei and Joffrey are on my hit list – couldn’t stand them! I read the books and watched the tv series, so I got a double dose *ughh*

    • Jade Jade says:

      So did I Tanya. And I’m reading the first three books OVER again so I can comfortably slide into AFFC. But these two here made my head spin with their antics. I just sit hoping someone will take them out!

  3. Jess Schira says:

    Every time I read Romeo and Juliet, I keep thinking thank goodness they didn’t have time to reporduce. I did like the supportig characters.

    • Jess Schira says:

      Oops, this is what happens when I’m reading 2 blogs at once, I mix my comments. I meant to say that, I haven’t read Game of Thrones yet, but if the book versions of Cerci and Joffery are as irritating as the televised versions, I completley agree.

      • Jade Jade says:

        Ohhhh, if you haven’t read the books I suggest you give them a go!! They are soooooo good and I love the television show as well. And they are just as, if not more, annoying in the books!

  4. Ha. I agree with Bella. I’ve seen her on several lists this morning.

  5. Liesel says:

    Great list! I actually don’t mind Cercei as a character. As a person she’s evil, manipulative, gives all women a bad name, and deserves whatever she gets. But that’s why I don’t mind her as a character. She’s pretty cut-and-dried evil and I sort of love to hate her. 😀
    My TTT. Happy Tuesday! 😀

  6. Not surprisingly I have seen Bella on tons of lists today. I know what you mean about her. I didn’t find her too annoying in Twilight. I can remember feeling that way when I met the first boy I loved. But in New Moon! I mean seriously!

  7. Yeah, I tried reading Vampire Diaries and I couldn’t get past my annoyance with Elena.

  8. I totally agree with Bella. Iloved the books but hated Bella. She was nails on a chalkboard for me. ARGH! Just thinking about her makes me cringe. 🙂
