Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters Ever:
Nine and Ten:
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.
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.
All 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!
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:
Violet 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!
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.
Prince 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!
Bella 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!
