You know that character who you hate so much that you keep hoping the author has them die some sort of horrible death? Or maybe you don’t, in which case this would be extraordinarily awkward and you probably think I’m some sort of deranged psychopath…
Whatever, it’s my blog.
So anyway, those are probably the antagonists, who interfere with the protagonist’s daily life and the inevitable romance everyone sees coming but loves anyway.
Here are some examples (I own none of these picture rights in case for some reason you thought I possessed any artistic talent at which point I would laugh at you):
If you don’t know who this is kindly disapparate.
Witches from Macbeth
Janine from Divergent
Now prepare yourself for the worst, most hated villain of all time
Are you ready?
Sorry to do this to you.
Pulls out invisibility cloak.
It is these awful, infuriating and despicable characters that I admire just as much as the brave and heroic ones. In my opinion, if an author can make me feel so much hatred for a character that I literally want to throw the book at a window, I think they did their job. For what else is a story other than to invoke emotion from an audience?
Does anyone feel the same way? Comment your most hated characters below and check out my personal blog Chapter Kathy.
Have a great day,
So I have not posted in ages but I’m still active I promise! I have been insanely and overwhelmingly busy recently with school and activities. I have twenty billion things due at once and I have to make a college decision soon about where I’m going to go…UGH it feels like I’m on a carousel that is spinning faster and faster I just have to power through the next few weeks though and things will calm down!!! I feel like I just need a good task schedule-if anyone has any organization tools that work for you, please share them with me!
Until the next post,
Recently I have been really looking for the value in each book I read. This is probably resulting from a combination of many factors but my interest has piqued about what I personally gain from every book I have read, am reading, or will read. Now the questions posed below are questions that I have personally felt that each book covers. Also, keep in mind that nothing is ever an extreme-and are also always circumstancial, as these questions certainly are. They are simply meant to make you think. So I would love if you could post your opinions on what the answers would be (respectfully towards others of course, but knowing all of you lovely readers that shouldn’t be an issue).
- Is it better to love someone completely without fear of heartache or concern about that which is materialistic OR to protect yourself so much that you close yourself off in order to shield your heart?-> Eleanor and Park by: Rainbow Rowell
- Should you sacrifice a bit of who you are for a short time in order to blend in with your surroundings OR should you not do so and risk ostricization?-> My Life with the Walter Boys by: Ali Novac
- If it could potentially help someone else, should we reveal a secret OR should we keep confidential what is not our business to tell?-> Trifles by: Susan Glaspell
- Shall we continue to follow our intuition even if everyone else says it is wrong?-> The Diviners by: Libba Bray
- When they contradict the other, do we perform our duty to ourselves or to our loved ones?-> The Red Tent by: Anita Diament
- If someone seems hostile and bitter, must we keep pushing until we break through their shell, OR must we maintain our distance to avoid a possibly confrontational situation?-> Beowulf by: Unknown
What are your thoughts on these questions? Has a book made you think so much that you formed your own questions and thoughts? Which ones and what were they?
Have a lovely evening,
