Top 5 Wednesday is created by Gingerreadslainey. Each week there is a new bookish topic, where everyone can join and create their top 5 list. You can find more information on the Top 5 Wednesday goodreads group. This week’s topic is:
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?
Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games
I do not want to be in her situation. I would be the first one to die in The Hunger Games. I would probably die of a heart attack before the Games even began because I was so scared.
Will Traynor from Me Before You
To be paralyzed like Will is would not be fun. And have to deal with pain every day. If you have read the book, you know how he handles it.
Rachel from The Girl on the Train
Rachel is an alcoholic. She is in a downward spiral of losing control of her life to alcoholism. She is a very unlikable untrustworthy character. It’s a big part of the plot in the book. And makes the book interesting, but I don’t want to be her.
Mark Watney from The Martian
First thing, I’m not as smart as the main character in this book. I don’t have the survival skills that he has. But I guess if I was in his situation, stranded alone on Mars. I would first have learned all the skills and education to be an astronaut, I would be a trained astronaut. But still I don’t know if I could do what he did, it takes some real extreme survival skills and quick thinking.
Eleanor from Eleanor & Park
She has had a tough life. Her family is horrible towards her and very dysfunctional. And her school life is not very good either. I felt so bad for her when I read the book.
