Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
1. Harry Angstrom (Rabbit series, John Updike): To be fair I've only read the first book in the series and I've still got the second sitting on my nightstand, but in book one Rabbit is the ultimate asshole.
2. Victor Ward (Glamorama, Bret Easton Ellis): Completely pretentious and removed from real life, Victor's motto is "the better you look the more you see." He is both a jerk and quite shallow.
3. Dexter (One Day, David Nicholls): Throughout the majority of the book, Dexter shows disregard for others feelings and only concerns himself with, well, himself.
4. Scrooge (A Christmas Carol, Dickens): Ok so he's not all bad, but for the first half of the novel he's a money-loving scumbag who treats everyone around him like crap.
5. Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter series, Rowling): It's not Draco's fault that he was raised by jerks, but anyone who calls Hermione a mudblood is not cool.
7. August (Water for Elepahnts, Gruen): Animal cruelty, even if it was during the depression on a traveling circus train, is not cool. Serious asshole. His actions carry on toward humans as well.
8. Holden Caufield (The Catcher and the Rye, Salinger): Holden Caufield needs to get off his high horse and stop acting like he knows everything. Serious jerk.
9. Inspector Javert (Les Miserables, Hugo): Javert's number one priority is to uphold the law, which means he doesn't show sympathies towards others, even good people.
10. Stanley (A Streetcar Named Desire, Williams): This gent happened to appear on my literary crush list as well (red flag). He is good looking, but also quite mean, beating his wife and raping her sister. Jerk.
