Most Frustrating Characters EVER

The following list may contain spoilers. Again, we will each be putting five characters (which will then equal ten!)

January 29: Top Ten Most Frustrating Characters Ever

Nora says...

  1. Katniss Everdeen: The Hunger Games. Now, I know what you may be thinking. What??? How can Nora be frustrated with Katniss Everdeen?? The Hunger Games is one of her favorite books (If you didn't know that, you do now :))! Well, Katniss annoys me because of her behavior. She doesn't really think things over; she just does them without thinking them through. Here's a perfect example. In Mockingjay, at the end of the book (don't worry, I won't put names), Katniss is all "Oh, well. Boy 1 is in another district, so I guess I can't be with him. Hey! Boy 2! I guess you're the one!" I mean, come on! Katniss doesn't think about it for a second. Wow, I didn't expect to rant for this long. Sorry about that!
  2. Julian Fineman: Pandemonium. *sigh* I don't know if I'm more frustrated at Julian or at Lena. I put Julian here because Lena didn't frustrate me in Delirium or Requiem. When she wasn't with Julian. I'm not sure why I hate Julian so much...I guess it's because my obsession over Alex overpowered me. Perhaps if Julian had come first, I wouldn't hate him so much...probably not, though. It's the fact that he's so weak. Honestly, Julian used to be a leader. I get that Lena basically told him that everything he was taught growing up was a lie, but he's still so weak. What do you think?
  3. The Darkling: Shadow and Bone. The Darkling. Why does he frustrate me, so? Probably because, at first, I pictured him to look like my fifth grade Social Studies and English teacher. Then weird stuff happened. Is he evil? Is he good? I never pictured my fifth grade teacher doing the stuff that The Darkling was doing (and I probably pictured him too old, as well). So, I basically find The Darkling frustrating because of my imagination. I hate my imagination. 
  4. Cassia: Matched. Xander or Ky? Ky or...I forget his name...? Throughout Matched, Cassia had to make an impossible decision about whether she wanted to be with Ky or Xander. Throughout most of Crossed and Reached, however, I feel like she forgot about Xander. Don't get me wrong, she did mention his name and see him a couple of times, but she never felt sad when she wasn't around him. She was constantly thinking about Ky, though. I'm not complaining, because I love Ky, but come on! Show Xander some appreciation, too! Now that I'm thinking about it, I've been seeing a lot of this in main YA characters these days (Ehem! Katniss!).
  5. Ralph (and Piggy): Lord of the Flies. In Lord of the Flies, Ralph's first friend on the island was a chubby boy. That chubby boy told Ralph that people called him Piggy when Ralph asked his name. Here's my first problem (with Piggy). Why would he tell Ralph that first? I get that he thought he could trust Ralph and that he didn't care what he was called, but wouldn't a normal person tell someone their real name first? This leads me to my second problem. When Ralph told the rest of the boys Piggy's name was...well, Piggy (which is a problem in itself), the rest of the boys picked on Piggy. Why didn't Ralph stand up to them? He had a chance to when they took Piggy's glasses and when they were teasing him the countless other times, too! Well, it kind of felt good to vent my emotions about frustrating characters. Now go to Kristen. I'm sure she's a little calmer than me. Actually, probably not. :P

Kristen says...

1.   Peter: Divergent. Seriously, this kid has issues. Divergent is one title you will hear repeated often by Nora and myself. He is the kind of person who will do unmentionable things in order to be at the top of the pack. Issues. This is a messed up child.

2.   Jared Lynburn: Unspoken. Why is this kid so annoying? Others might think differently but in my opinion he's way too arrogant for my liking. That's basically why he's annoying and all, but he also has these stupid anger problems and totally acts like he doesn't care or something...I really don't have that much to say about him.
3.   Warner: Shatter Me. This guy is a power-hungry crazy who just wants total control over Juliette and her ability. He doesn't know that she doesn't like him but yet he still forces her to use her ability for his evil bidding.  This guy does not know when to stop.  He forces her to hurt one of his workers (with her ability) just to make a point, using her as a threat.
4. House Master Vaughn:  Wither.   He is a control freak to me. Even though he seems all good in the book, he really isn't all that great. For instance: when Cece has a kid, he tries to separate them so that the baby doesn't love her. He killed Jenna when she was 19 and she should have died when she turned 20. But he somehow put stuff in her food or something and she died. Evil man.

5.   Jude: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.  Yes, he may seem sweet and totally hot at first, but his intentions are terrible, if that makes any sense.  If you don’t want to have this book spoiled for you then I say don’t read this:  Mara and her friends (Jude included) go to an abandoned asylum one night and Mara and Jude run off on their own.  Something happens, which would be weird to say now.  She is trapped by Jude where he tries to rape her (with little success).  You see, she didn’t want that to happen and he just didn’t listen and it’s so annoying to me.  This kid doesn’t know when to stop, I mean seriously, why don’t you just leave the girl alone! She doesn’t want that!

So, in conclusion, this is what we say to all these characters:
-Nora and Kristen
