September 21, 2016: Characters You WOULDN’T Want to Trade Places With
– We always talk about how cool it would be to be a character in our favorite books, but who would you not want to trade places with?
There are soo many characters that I really wouldn’t want to trade places with because pretty much all of them are in trashy situations.
01 Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games)
We all know her story. She has had an incredibly shitty life. I honestly doubt that anyone would want to live it.
02 Winter (The Lunar Chronicles)
Living with Levana made Winter’s life hell. In rebellion, winter has stopped using her powers. Sounds simple, right? Wrong. Not using her powers has been slowly driving her insane, literally. Her life is terrible and I would most certainly not like to live it.
03 Rye (The Doors Trilogy)
Don’t get me wrong this is one of my favourite series of all time but I would never want to be any of the characters let alone Rye. His brothers are both thought to be dead so he ventures out through mysterious doors into unknown lands to try and find them. He faces countless beasts and endless dangers, almost dying soo many times.
04 Thomas (The Maze Runner)
I’ve only read the first 2 books in this series so I don’t know everything his character goes through but from what I’ve seen Thomas goes through a hell of a lot. He is thrown into a maze with none of his memories where he is almost killed multiple times and is emotionally manipulated more than once. And then there’s the thing where heaps of his friends die in the series – yeah, count me out.
05 Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter series)
While I really, really dislike his character I do understand that he never really had the easiest life. His father has probably one suck up of the year ever since he became a death eater and he was brought up surrounded by evil and wealth. He never knew any other life than one where he got everything he ever wanted and he was brought up to believe that he, and the rest of his family was better than everyone else.
Yes, in retrospect his life doesn’t seem like it was too terrible. But it kind of was, his friends were all terrible people and I never really believed that they were actually his friends – they were more like followers. He was forced to become a death eater and was threatened into killing Dumbledore (I know he didn’t actually do it).
He had a very dark life and was forced to do things he didn’t consent to so would I ever want to be him? Hell no.
