Unlikable characters made this my least favorite Michael Chabon book

Wonder Boys - Michael Chabon

Seriously?


None of the characters in the books are likable. Drunk. Stoned. Irresponsible. 

 

Half way through the book and I keep asking myself why should I care what happened to these characters.

 

And they killed a dog. A big no no.

 

Skip to the end and see if it would improve. Not very likely.

 

So. It would not be likely to raise above  3 stars.

 

I read some uncomfortable characters in other books. At least give them humors. Or something that show the readers they are not just selfish assholes. 

 

No. Not yet.

 

Thinking of giving it up to save myself from the anguish of wasting time on this one.
