So Which Discworld Characters Don't You Like?

Postby poohbcarrot » Wed Feb 11, 2009 1:52 pm

Tony doesn't like Carrot, Tiffany doesn't like Vetinari and I don't like Colon.

So who don't you like and why?

Rincewind. He's such a bloody drama queen it gets right on my nerves. He wants to show some backbone, & put a bit of effort in!

Do you know I can't think of one character that I do hate/dislike? :lol:

Offhand I'd say maybe Vorbis (Small Gods) or Dios (Pyramids)but again they're also victims in a certain light and I do kind of feel sorry for them at some point in the books - so I don't really hate them as such as they HAVE to be so horrible to make the story work :shock:

Rincewind I have to agree with Dotsie is bloody irritating at times, but cowardice is a survival instinct and he is pretty funny (and sensible too) so I don't dislike him at all.

I have to say that I'm just a tad fed up of Igors. :P

Reacher Gilt. Yeah, I know you're supposed to hate him. I guess that makes him a bad guy but a good character.

Im like chris, i dont really dislike any character but if i had to say one i reckon its Moist, dunno why just something about him...... cant put it in words, maybe the name? i think its a feeling rather than anything else about him and cringe dosnt come into it. :) And i better just add i think making money is one of Terrys better books, i enjoyed it.

I dislike several characters, but as they are necessary for the stories, I'll tolerate them. Simon in Equal Rites is one I have no time for--he's so wet!

Agree with Chris and Disc-holic I like everyone, although if i had to pick someone it would be Strappi from Monstrous Regiment :(
I have seen the truth and it makes no sense.

Captain Carrot - unless Terry does something spectacular with his character I am afraid I am going to find him a bore, and surely with all the time he's spent in Ankh, he should be slightly corrupted by now, especially with Nobby Nobbs around him most of the time.

Ponder Stibbons - Not going into reasons for this one but suffice it to say, I don't like him. I find him a little too scientific for my taste.

Annagramma - can Tiffany please punch her? She deserves it!

That's it so far.

Yeah, the Strappster and Anagramma are annoying characters, but they're meant to be :)

I don't particularly like Agnes Nitt or Perdita, but I can tolerate them. There aren't any characters I loathe.
