Hi everyone and welcome to another Top 5 Wednesdays! Top 5 Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted on a Goodreads Group, the link to which I have included here in case any of you would like to join.
Today’s topic is Favorite “Unlikeable” Protagonists, or protagonists that people normally hate but I actually enjoy reading about. Here we go:
MARGO ROTH SPIEGELMAN
Paper Towns by John Green
I’ve actually read quite a lot of reviews and hear a lot of people who don’t quite like Margo but I really did somehow. She did seem slightly unlikeable in a few parts, but overall I think I really liked her as a character.
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
In the latter half of the series, Jace wasn’t quite likeable. I loved Jace in the first book and even though he wasn’t quite as fantastic in the subsequent books, I stil love Jace. ❤
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Many reviews hate on Nick because lets face it, Nick and Amy did horrible things to each other. But I never really hated Nick. He was just a normal guy trapped in a loveless marriage, and I do like him as a narrator and a character!
The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan
This one’s actually surprising for me because I simply love Sadie! Still many of my friends find her unlikeable and that annoys me because I find her fantabulous, and quirky and so badass.
EUSTACE CLARENCE SCRUBB
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
Lets face it – Eustace was terribly unlikeable in the beginning of the Voyage of the Dawn Treader. But he became better eventually and I do like him as a character!
And thats all for today! Hope you have a great day!
