What book did you read with the most unlikeable protagonist?
Posted on 13th of July, 2020


The Reef by Nora Roberts. The woman was an idiot and the man she was nuts for sexually assaulted her. I found it sickening and couldn't root for them as a couple, even though they of course ended up together.
Andy from The Devil Wears Prada fo rsure. I re-read the book after watching the movie and its very obvious what Andy is a super awful employee. I mean Miranda is not an angel but if you did any of the stuff that Andyd did at your job you would be fired in a heartbeat. Who licks someone elses plates to get back at them. Plus she’s constantly complaining about everyone else and procrastinates at her job.

Claire Duffy - Snarky Protagonists, Dark Facts Blended With Fiction, and Suspenseful Crime-solving
FEATURED AUTHOR - Claire Duffy was a screenwriter for over a decade until she caught herself cycling past a production company and giving it the finger. She decided she didn't like the person the film industry was turning her into. Duffy quit, took a temporary job at a daycare in Stockholm, and wrote her first novel while her class of one-year-olds took their afternoon nap. Through blogging that story in daily chapters, she discovered indie publishing and never looked back.
