Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & the Bookish.  It’s awesome. Every Tuesday, the lovely ladies over there give us book bloggers wonderful and fun topics to create our lists!  Check out what others have posted by going over there! http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com

This week’s topic is:

Top Ten Societies You Would Never Want to Live in/ Characters You Wouldn’t Want to Trade Places With

I decided to do a little of each!

Societies

1.  Brave New World

Just too creepy.

2.  Game of Thrones

It all sucks in this world- except the dragons.  Dragons are very cool.

3.  The Handmaid’s Tale

A world were women are subjugated in this fashion is horrifying.

4.  Mordor

While I would love to spend time with Aragorn and Elrond, I don’t want to go anywhere near this place.

5.  Narnia

Although I would love to have talking animals, the White Witch scares me.  And the never-ending winter??  I feel like we are having that now.  It’s freezing!

Characters

6.  Katniss Everdeen- The Hunger Games

She is very cool and saves the world and all.  But she pays too high a price.

7.  Wendy Torrence- The Shining

Stuck in a hotel for MONTHS.  With a husband and small child???  Oh yeah, someone was going to crack.

8.  Dolores Price-  She’s Come Undone

This poor girl.  Why couldn’t someone help her?  I couldn’t stand this book.

9.  Lisbeth Salander- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I love her strong character, but so much bad crap happens to her.

10.  Charlotte Lucas Collins – Pride & Prejudice

Was he really her only option?  Be an old maid.  Or pray for early widowhood.

  2. I’d forgotten all about She’s Come Undone — what an awful life she had! I had Westeros and Mordor on my list as well, although I don’t think I’d mind Narnia, maybe under the reign of Caspian? Post White Witch, in any case — she’s scary! Good call on Gilead also. One of my very favorite books, but I’d never want to find myself there. Great list!
