Name one

Name a first person novel where the character isn’t annoying, stupid, or an asshole–I’d like to read it.

Maybe it’s because people never see their own faults, I suppose that’s realistic but it’s still annoying.

(almost) Every novel I’ve read in first person the character does irrational, stupid, or asshole-ish things, and never acknowledges it or suffers any consequences for it.

It’s very frustrating.

I get that when a person is telling their own story, they are never going to make themselves the bad-guy, but it’s really not as much fun to read as an objective account of things.

Anyway.  Just some complaining…
