Ahh! Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters
I had a bit of a difficult time with this week's Top Ten from The Broke and The Bookish. In fact, I spent quite a few days thinking about who were my Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters. Eventually, this is what I came up with.
1. Every "heroine" written in the Bella Swan vein. Every girl and woman that swoons over some guy who is basically stalking her. Be strong! This is the 21st Century. You don't need a man to save you. Save yourself.
I will admit to enjoying the Twilight books. Meyer wrote an addictive series, but I really did spend a lot of the time being frustrated with the main character. I also don't mean to say that Bella is the only heroine that does this. She's just the most obvious, well-known example.
So, ladies, in the future, please stand up for yourselves. Your whole life should not revolve around a man.
That's all I have. I couldn't get past number one. I'm looking forward to reading the characters on other lists.
Who do you find frustrating? Do you agree with my opinion of Bella and the swoony female lead?
