My Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters
1. Lena Duchannes
I'm on a Beautiful Creatures kick. Though while I'm speeding through the series there is always something that irks me. That something is usually a girl with two different colored eyes who's saying things like "I know it's about me". I get that she is a pretty important person in the Caster world and that without her there would be no books at all but I am so frustrated with her attitude.
2. Holden Caulfield
Speaking of attitude I think we can all agree the Holden is the king of attitude problems. Plus he lacks basic understand of pretty much anything. I love him to death but there is a reason why Catcher In the Rye loses it's appeal past the age of 20.
3. Jane Eyre
Oh plain boring Jane, I'm sorry your life sucks. I'm sorry you're in love with a deeply disturbing married man. But do you really have to be so tedious all the time? You are the reason why I won't give Charlotte Bronte another chance.
4. Mrs. Bennett
Can we all agree she is the most frustrating Bennett? I know Lydia can be pretty bad, but when you look at her role model you can hardly expect anything more from her. Quick Happy Publication Birthday shoutout to Pride and Prejudice (a day late!).
5. Anna Karenina
This titular heroine is obsessive, destructive and cringe inducing. Frustrated is really the discription of my feelings during the last 200 pages of Anna Karenina. Her constant fights with Vronsky and her parinoia did me in and I found myself wishing she'd have made her fateful journey tot he train station a quarter of a book sooner.
6. Alexei Karenin
Where Anna was descending into madness Alexei was cool and rational. It's his rational that actually made him frustrating. Any man who responds to the confessions of an unfaithful wife by just asking her to come back home really ruins the drama of the relationship. Really he's just my least favorite character in Anna Karenina and I find them all sort of frustrating.
7. All the kids in A Series of unfortunate events
They're just the worst orphans. Why can't they do anything right?!?!
8. Margaret Hale
I'm not the biggest fan of North and South and I'm-too-good-for-the-North Margaret Hale is the reason why. She is stubborn and opinionated and insulting. I'm having a hard time articulating just how much I dislike her. To make up for this here is a picture of Richard Armitage in the BBC mini series of North and South. He's good times.
9. Percy Weasley
The only Weasley who, when present with all the facts, chooses to ignore them in favor of advancing his career.
10. Katniss Everdeen
I love The Hunger Games, and I love Katniss, but her self sacrificing demeanor can be really trying.
