Top Ten Tuesday (69)

Top Ten Infuriating Characters
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. Claire (Ask the Passengers)
Ask The Passengers
Claire is nearly everything a mother shouldn't be.

2. Susan (The Last Battle)
The Last Battle (Chronicles of Narnia, #7)
SPOILER: The fact that Susan denied Narnia in the end existed ticked me off *so* much.

3. Umbridge (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5)
Who didn't want to punch this woman, seriously?

4. Margo Roth Spiegelman (Paper Towns)
Paper Towns
Don't get me wrong- I *love* this book and don't completely dislike Margo. I thought she was cool, but selfish. I think she's meant to be a bit frustrating.

5. Jen (So Yesterday)
So Yesterday
I liked her initially, but she was fairly cliche and her actions, especially at the end, didn't always fit her characterizations.

6. Sharon (Audrey, Wait!)
Audrey, Wait!
She's the mean girl in this book and she fills her role perfectly.

7. Brother Leon (The Chocolate War)
The Chocolate War (Chocolate War, #1)
There are no words to describe this man except, perhaps, evil.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
I consider Tom Sawyer to be the most irritating character in all of American literature. Huck Finn would have been a *much* better book if he hadn't returned for the last few chapters.

9. The King and the Duke (The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn)
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
They were around for far, far too long. Ugh.

I'm going to have to stop there for this week. I'll add more if I can think of any others.

Which characters did you find frustrating?


  1. Interesting list! I agree re: Umbridge, the sooner she was out of Hogwarts, the sooner I was relieved lol.

    Here's my list of 10 irritating/frustrating characters =)

  2. I hated Umbridge! I don't think I've ever detested a character as much as I did her. I celebrated when she was dragged out of Hogwarts, haha!

    My TTT

  3. I agree with The Duke and The King from Huck Finn and yes Tom Sawyer is really annoying.

    I should have totally put Umbridge on my list. Rats! Great list and thanks for sharing.

  4. Great list! I used your blog post title as well.

  5. Claire was such an awesome pick! I forgot how horrible she was. I really loved that book though. I must say, it's refreshing to see a Bella-free list (even though she topped my own).

  6. Umrbidge is awful! Totally want to slap her, and I am not a violent person. Also, I feel you about Morgo. Although that might just be me not being able to relate to people like her.


Your comments brighten my day. :)
