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…
