Today’s WLP Wants To Know is going to be fun, it’s all about Character’s We Love To Hate and I have brought over KindleVixen (Tiffany) to debate this with me. The idea for this post started a few days ago when Tiffany and I were discussing Anton Strout’s Simon Canderous series. We both absolutely detest Simon’s girlfriend Jane and we have no idea why. I think she just grates us the wrong way, but we found out via Twitter that we weren’t alone on the hate, others don’t like Jane either. (Sorry Anton) It went as far as Tiffany making a hate poster for Jane.
I realized, there are a lot of characters in PR/UF that I cannot stand so I asked Tiffany to join me today so we could talk about them!
Jean-Claude/Older Vampires: We have came to the conclusion that most old vampires creep us out (Jean-Claude from LKH’s Anita series for instance), they just seem to slick even for us and come across as dirty old men.
Trent (Kim Harrison’s Hollows): Tiffany said it best “He’s all sneaky & shit”. Trent is nothing but a sneaky sneak, he’s always showing up and starting something. Not cool Trent, NOT cool. Though I love him for his sneak, Tiffany not so much.
Lash (BDB by JR Ward): He’s nothing but a bully. Plotting and scheming. John Matthew better kick his arse in the next book.
Annie (Makers Song Series by Adrian Phoneix): Annie is Heather’s sister, Heather is Dante’s woman. Annie is bi-polar and uses it to snap and attack both Heather & Dante at any chance she gets. What kind of sister is this? I’d have left her ass along time ago. If she’s not telling Dante off, she’s trying to sleep with him. Bitch. But Heather keeps protecting her, so she needs a smack upside the head too.
Anita Blake (LKH): Oh yes, we are going there. Anita started out as a likeable character who kicked ass and took names. Not so much now, she can usually be found on her back with any number of people. There is using sex to your advantage and then there is using sex as an excuse to be a dirty slut. Guess which one Anita falls into? Nevermind what she did to Richard. Bitch.
Zach (Kimberly Frost’s Southern Witch): Zach is Tammy Jo’s EX husband, yet he’s still all up in that. Zach back off and left Tammy Jo find out more about Byron. You had it and lost it Zach, move on!
Amanda Feral (Mark Henry): Well, we don’t really hate her, but she is a disgusting, foul-mouthed bitch. That just makes us love her more.
As you can see, between just the two of us, this could have went on for ages. But now I turn to you Readers, WLP (& KV) Want To Know: What Characters Do You Love To Hate?
