Here are mine:
Rosemary from Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin
- I didn't not feel bad for Rosemary at all. I felt her character was weak and so wishy-washy. Ugh. This could, undoubtedly, be due to the fact that the book was written in the 60s...alas.
- Oh, Emma. My least favorite Austen character, and book, by far. She's whiny, manipulative, and snooty. She didn't deserve John at all!
- I just couldn't bring myself to believe or really even care for either of theses characters. While I did like Marco more than Celia, neither impressed me too much...
- I think the disconnect between the reader and Eadlyn is done completely on purpose by Cass. You're not supposed to really like her because it will, I assume, make her transformation in the subsequent book so much more believable and likable. We shall see!
- I get why Rhine acts the ways she does...to a certain extent. Sure, her situation totally sucks to a certain point, but come on!
- People are probably going to shoot me for this one, but I really disliked Georgie. She was a very blah character for me. Her sister and the pizza delivery girl were more developed and more likable in my opinion.
- Carley is spoiled. As a reader, you feel sorry for her because her parents force her to be something she's not, but that still doesn't make up for the fact that she plays the "whoa-is-me" card too often throughout the book.
- Aspen's supposed to be the likable character in the series, but I found her to be pretentious and stuck-up...the exact thing that she claims she's not. Nice try, Hale, but you didn't pull it off.
- Barf! Barf, barf, barf! I don't like Hemingway (aside from his short stories) and I don't believe these two characters care one iota for anyone but themselves. Do they even care that much?
- Perhaps if I read this book now, I might "get" Siddhartha as a character more than I did in my early 20s. But, from what I can remember, Siddhartha was boring and bland as a character...and as a book.
