Without further ado, here are my top 5 characters I used to love but don’t anymore.

I used to think Gale was one of the best characters in this series. But as time went on and I finally read the last book I didn’t like him, my opinion on him completely changed. It was like his character had taken on a whole new personality and that was one that I did not like.

2) Margo Roth Spiegelman from Papertowns

paper-towns-john-green-1I used to think Margo was an absolutely amazing character. But as I have grown older I have come to a point were I really dislike her character. She sent Quentin on a huge mission to find her and I just really dislike her for that. I wish she would have just been a better character overall.

3) Chirag from Faceless1

I used to think that Chirag was a lovely character and did all that he could to look after Maisie Winters. But after listening to the audio book I came to the realisation that in fact, Chirag isn’t lovely he is just doing what he can to seem lovely and please people. (Audio Book Review) (Book Review).

When I read this book I loved Vivi’s character but thinking back on the book I completely changed my mind. I am not a huge fan of her character anymore. She isn’t the sort of character that appeals to me. Whilst I was caught up in the book she was but thinking back on it, she really isn’t. (Review).

5) I sat and tried to think of a fifth character for a long time…

No one came to mind at all.

  1. I find it really disappointing yet fascinating how our brains need a bit of time to process books without their rose tinted glasses on. I often question myself “how could I like that book?” or “what did I see in it?” But the truth is we change overtime and our maturity changes and our view of the world changes… Still, there is always that one cherished book/character we will never see differently, and that’s comforting 🙂


  2. Ughhhh, I hate Gale SO much. He was too jealous and needy for me. I really liked Vivi’s character in When We Collided, though I don’t remember a whole lot. I used to love Magiano from The Young Elites, but now he just gets on my nerves.


  3. TBH I never liked Margo. I went into Papertowns after reading Looking for Alaska and I was really hoping to fall in love with Margo too. Alas, I found her immature and self centred.😩
