Top Ten Tuesdays: Characters I Didn’t Click With

Top Ten Tuesdays

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Today’s post is:

Ten Characters You Just Didn’t Click With”

This took awhile since I had to differentiate between characters I disliked and characters I didn’t click with:

51oYEfb+0WL._SL3001 & 2. Rachel and Amy Watson from The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins

Amy was clingy and whiny and Rachel was just depressing all the time. Probably one of the reasons I didn’t like the book that much.






3. Frank Churchill from Emma by Jane Austen

He is not as bad as George Wickham and I understand that he needed to conceal his engagement with Jane Fairfax…but you’re telling me he couldn’t find another way to hide it other than flirting with another woman, especially in front of his fiance?




4. Kim from Don’t Get Me Wrong by Marianne Kavanagh

Understood where she was coming from but had hard time feeling sorry for her, especially when some of the problems that were caused were of her own doing.



5. Edmund Bertram from Mansfield Park by Jane Austen 

He is not a bad character. It’s just…I feel that Fanny deserved better. I am rereading Mansfield Park now so maybe my perception of him will change.



Robinson Crusoe


6. Robinson Crusoe from Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe

Both him and the book was soooo boring!




7. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 

She was just a very bad narrator. It was difficult for me to get through the story because of her.





8. Lemuel Gulliver from Gulliver’s Travles by Johnathan Swift

Same reason I gave for Robinson Crusoe.





9. Shea Rigsby from The One & Only by Emily Giffin 

Maybe it was the type of relationship that she was pursuing but I just couldn’t emotionally click with Shea like I usually do in Giffin’s other novels.




10. Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Sometimes his passion for revenge got the best of him.




What characters did you not click with?

I was born and raised in New York. I still live in New York but kind of sick of the city and one day I wish to move to the UK.I have a Masters degree in Library Science and I currently work in a special collections library. I loved books ever since I was a little girl. Through the hard times in my life, my love for books has always gotten me through. Just entering another world different from my own intrigues me. As long as I am entering in another universe, I like to create my own as well. I love to write and hopefully I will be able to complete a novel.

  1. Can you believe I’ve never made it all the way through Emma? (gulp) But I remember watching the movie and thinking, “Man, what a jerk.” It seems like he really took advantage of the situation to have a little fun!

  2. Totally agree about Edmund Bertram – I was a little bit rooting for Henry Crawford but that’s not really Jane Austen’s style, she had very little time for the bad boy!

  3. Ya, know. I’ve never read a Jane Austin book. I want to, they just intimidate me.

    There were times when I would have liked the Collins to delve into the minds of other characters in The Hunger Games. Seeing things from Peeta’s perspective or Gale’s would have added something to the series. Especially if we got a glimpse into Peeta’s mind during his time as a Capitol prisoner.

  4. oh goodness yes to Heathcliff – I still have not finished WH because of him. And I hadn’t thought about Frank Churchill but I totally agree with him too. My TTT

  5. One character for me is Christina from Divergent. Something about the way she is seen doesn’t haver intrigued with her. She just seemed like the annoying background friend.
