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.
