~ #BookBloggerHop: Least Favorite Character Types ~

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.


Topic Run Dates: July 16th – 22nd, 2021

Question

What is your least favorite type of character to read about? (submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)


Answer

My least favorite characters are those that are self-centered/selfish. When characters ignore the needs of others or they shut out others (or something else), then it affects my ability to enjoy the story. This happens a lot in stories where a character develops a sort-of “hero complex” where they think it is up to only them to defeat any evil.

However, I do not mind it when characters start this way as long as they grow throughout the novel or series. Characters in stories typically grow in some way, which are ones that I enjoy a lot. If a character ends up the exact same at the end and are the same character the reader met at the beginning, then it typically does not end up a novel/series that I would ever considering rereading or recommending to others.


How about you? What are your least favorite character types?
