Top Ten Characters I Didn’t Click With


Even if I don’t like a book, it is rare for me not to identify in some way with the main character. This becomes even more true when a book is told in first person narration. Still, there are exceptions and there are even books I like where I don’t love the main character … here are a few characters I didn’t click with. Would love to know what you think of my choices and some of your own picks for characters you don’t connect with in the comments. Happy Tuesday!

Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme!

  1. Hi! Hester Prynne πŸ™‚ I can’t click with any of the classics’ characters. They all seem to make such obviously bad decisions. I read Wicked, but I can’t remember it. Maybe that means I didn’t click with those characters, as well!

    1. Interesting. There are characters from classics that I like (Elizabeth Bennet and Jane Eyre are the first two that come to mind) … but Hester Prynne is definitely not one of them. Thanks for commenting!

  2. I haven’t read any of these; the closest I came is watching Wicked the musical.

    Katniss was a character I didn’t connect with at all.

      1. At the time I blogged about it (’11?), I was told constantly how weird I was and “literally no one else” felt that way. It made me laugh since Amazon’s 1- and 2-star reviews (publicly available!) quickly refute that.
