Which Main Characters Annoy You?

We all know them. They’re the whiny, moaning lead characters in a book, film or tv show. No matter how hard you try to avoid them, you’ll always manage to find one of those books and you’ll resent yourself for it. Here’s my list of books with annoying main characters!

  1. The Hunger Games Trilogy. Is there anything more tedious than a female lead who starts out strong and then complains that life is so difficult because she has 2 boys fighting for her attention? Katniss was a great character and reminded us in the beginning of the first book that the bond between sisters is special. This is then completely overtaken by the fact that Gale and Peta are the 2 fighting for her attention.
  2. The Private Series. Reed Brennan starts off as your average every day girl who most of us can actually relate to. I loved this book for so long! Until it became (firstly) “oh my life is so much better now I’m popular and have a boyfriend”, closely followed by “oh no, 2 boys are interested in me and I can’t pick between them”. Stop doing this to girls, we don’t need a boyfriend to be happy. Trust me.
  3. Harry Potter. Has there ever been a more irritating boy who can’t accept that the battle to save the wizarding world is more important than people’s loyalty to him? Constantly talking about how guilty he feels because people gave their life to protect him, he doesn’t ever seem to consider that there are more important things in life.
  4. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Frodo Baggins is the worst. I can’t describe how much he annoys me.

These are my main 4. Who are yours?

    Oh, I didn’t think of Iron Man! I would agree that his cockiness is annoying but I love his sarcasm. Although I completely agree that he is annoying xx

    Though I love the films and the books (I’m currently re-reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), Harry Potter is quite annoying! I always find it funny though how in practically every film, each new adult that meets him greets him with a; “Harry, Harry Potter?” XD

    I’m the exact same! I love the books and the films and I couldn’t imagine not loving them 😍 haha I’ve never noticed that! I’m going to have to look out for that next time 😂
