This week’s question is suggested by (blogless) JMutford:
Sometimes I find eccentric characters quirky and fun, other times I find them too unbelievable and annoying. What are some of the more outrageous characters you’ve read, and how do you feel about them?
The first quirky character that comes to mind is Stephanie Plum who is hilarious and very real but sometimes she can border on annoying but Janet Evanovich always pulls her back from being unbelievable. There are other characters like this too: Anita Blake, Sookie Stackhouse, and Betsy Taylor the Vampire Queen are just a few of very good characters that I adore who also at times can get on my last nerve! I tend not to dislike quirky characters very much but that’s also a deal breaker for me, if the character annoys me too much then I’ll stop reading.
