Why I Love Wednesdays...Characters I Love to Hate

Reflections of a Bookaholic
I am returning with my feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns our Favorite Characters we Love to Hate

Why I Love... Jason from Fallen Together

I've picked a character that many of you may be unfamiliar with. Jason from the Fallen Together is a character I just love to hate. I mean, he leaves a girl in a ditch alone when she goes into a seizure. He doesn't get help and only puts a blanket over her. That's such a horrible thing to do. Things could have turned out so bad. Things eventually change and he grows up. He's still the type of guy that I just couldn't call a friend. I probably wouldn't even like him as a person.

But I bring him up because he actually has some redeeming qualities and Ms. De los Santos did a great job making him so complex that you could see how some could like him. Though I did feel bad for him and wish him the best in the end, I still couldn't get over the earlier behavior. When the book was over, I found myself thinking of Jason the most. It is amazing how complicated the human spirit can be.

  1. Oooo I love the characters that leave us thinking.

  2. Interesting question!
    I haven't read the series you mentioned, but it does sound like he can be a pretty unlikeable sort!

    1. He is, but he has another side. It is so confusing. I guess that's human nature really.

  3. I've never heard of this character but he sounds kind of douchie. Now I want to know what book and series this is.

    1. It isn't a series. It's from Falling together. I loved that book.

  4. Oh! I think I got this book, well, my cousin is holding it for me. :P
    So I'll see how I feel about this Jason dude!

    I do love when you got some delicious villain that you love to hate, it's a great feeling in a book.
