I love this question, from a Huffington Post tweet: Which book (if any) did you have to stop reading because you were so annoyed by a character?

[Heidi M Smith] - Can't remember, lol...
[Dee Moore] - I never stopped reading any book because I was annoyed by the character but I put it down to think of ways of choking them lol
[Alexa Lucas] - Catcher in the Rye
[Ginger James] - I hate to admit it especially here but, I had to quit reading Phillipa Gregory's The other Boleyn!!! It made me so mad the way that the true history was twisted!!!!!
[Howard Dalton] - O-Lan in The Good Earth.
[Layla Debevec] - The 50 Shades book annoyed me after page 4. No interest whatsoever.
[Angie Rae] - Anais Nin as herself or Sabina...love/hate
[Elizabeth Suzanne] - It's more the author than the subject, but "The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn". Once she gave Anne that 6th finger, i literally threw it in the trash.
[Raven Allen] - Never really stopped a book always powered through, but after a few of her books I stopped even trying to read Philippa Gregory.
[Rhianna Rhodes-Barrios] - I think this page is full of Phillips Gregory haters & I don't like it
[Teresa Fortner Betts] - I could not read the James Michenor novel "Alaska". I've read almost everything else he's written and he's one of my favorite writers, but for some reason, just couldn't do it. And, and of course, Atlas Shrugged.
[Susan Higginbotham] - Barbara Pym's "The Sweet Dove Died" (and I loved her other novels). I just found the heroine insufferable.
[Sandra NicAodha] - The Tale of Edgar Sawtelle
[Elizabeth Anni Leppin] - Power of One - Hated it after two chapters, threw it in the bin and never read another book of his. Shocking, banal writing!
[Carol Ann Lloyd Stanger] - I tried The Other Boleyn Girl and ended up throwing it across the room. I just couldn't take the way she manipulated facts so she could manipulate readers.
[Emma Maria] - 50 shades. it recieved so much hype i thought i should find out for myself. Got to page 20 and could go no further. I think the lead had an inner ear problem, all she seemed to do was fall over.
[Lara Rieger] - I agree, I wanted to read 50 shades to see what the hype was about. I just found the writing beyond terrible.
[Elise McKay Hansen] - Ugggh!!! It took me FOREVER to read The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory because of how she portrayed Anne Boleyn. Also, what got on my nerves was Mary's "angelic" personality.
[Lori Necina Mattos] - Definitely 50 shades, both main characters were horrible, I don't understand how anyone could read it and like it. I ALSO had to stop The White Princess because of the author's depiction on Henry VII
[Jill Elswick] - I started The Other Boleyn Girl a few weeks ago, and, even though I don't have all my history straight about what happened, I know I have to make an effort not to let this book influence me too much. She made Mary younger than Anne, for example, and that is not what most scholars think. I want to read it, but I'm being cautious about what I absorb.
[Jodi Bennett Bitler] - Two...Fifty Sahdes of Really!?!? and the Twilight series.
[Jamie Lee Flint] - Abraham Lincoln vampire slayer ...hunter...killer...whatever! It was so poorly written. I can take a good spoof on history but this was bad!
[Maryam Al Yafei] - Or Emma Maria, how about saying: "oh my!"" A hundred million times!!!!??
[Suzanne Tyrrell] - A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (when I was 15)
[Maryam Al Yafei] - Sorry, that as in the "Fifty Shades" book
[Kylie Hughes-Martin] - We need to talk about Kevin - I did finish it but almost stopped reading because the father infuriated me!!
[Elise Moonen] - Gone with the Wind!! oh god I was soo annoyed with Scarlett that I wanted to throw the nook across the room
[Claire Ellen] - Sense and Sensibility, I love the 90s film version, I found the two sisters endearingly practical and romantic respectively, but when I read the book, the traits were really ridiculously over the top, I only got halfway through.
[Susan Kannan] - Fifty Shades. Could not understand the raves.
[Debra Betts Storch] - Richard Patterson..a couple of them..and PG 's. Wise Woman.
[Lori Beston] - there was a series I read about a woman who ends up time traveling in Scotland and going back to medieval times. I can't remember the name, but the series was awesome. The lead female character drove me nuts with her whining. NUTS!
[Michelle Roberti-Shepard] - I didn't stop reading it...instead I wrote a personal "dissertation" on it. The hateful book was "Wicked."
[Lori Beston] - bah! I thought Wicked was brilliant!
[Ramona K. Sprague] - Margaret BEAUFORT,Also, The Red Queen.
[Jenny Zeek-Schmeidler] - That Carolly Erikson book about Jane Seymour
[Christine Link] - Mary Boleyn by Alison Weir for some reason I just could not get into the book to finish it. Her book on Anne was more interesting and much beter.
[Thea Fuhrmann Adcock] - Gone with the wind....hands down. So annoying!
[Jenny Zeek-Schmeidler] - Oh, also Twilight. Terrible stuff. Didn't even touch Fifty Shades. Please, I'll even take PG's Anne Boleyn over that stuff; at least she had a brain. Give me a girl with a bow and arrow any day in a post apocalyptic death match, but no vampires or submissive dingbats falling in love with abusive men!
[Sofia Lopez Garcia] - ^^^^a reader after my own heart. Agree 100%. Twilight hands down had the most annoying "heroine" of all time.
[Christine Finamore Anderson] - Lori Beston- please tell me you're not talking about Claire in the Outlander series... I loved it and can't recall any whining. (Now I need to re-read it!)
[Esther Anteby] - I had gone with the wind out from the library for close to 6 months and I couldn't get through it. I resolved to, and wanted to kick Scarlett so many times, but I loved the character development and it's one of my favorites now.
[Anne Rowe] - Mary Boleyn by Alison Weir couldn't get in to it at all...
[Dale Louise] - Catcher in the Rye!!! I hate Holden Caulfield!!!
[Nicole Phillips Porter] - I also couldn't stand Catcher in the Rye's Holden Caulfield.
[Louise Simes Banks] - A Prayer for Owen Meany
[Scott Halvorsen Turner] - I haven't finished a novel in years, for pretty much that reason. Juan Goytisolo is about the only novelist I can slog through.
[Jess Monson-Donnerbauer] - Twilight books. Bella is annoying.
[Paris Shelton] - Amber, it was a huge book and the main character had absolutely no pride
[Adrienne Dillard] - I wanted to stop on Catcher In The Rye too but I had to read it for school. Holden was awful. I actually can't think of any I have stopped reading I usually try to stick it out.
[Ruth Davis Nichols] - I finished Gone Girl but by the time I did I hated both of the main characters.

[Liz Polat] - 50 shades, badly written garbage. I think I lasted 20 pages. x
