Ten Tortured Characters (That Doesn’t Mean 50 Shades) #books #greatreads

Tortured characters you just can’t help feeling sorry for:
–Hester Prynne in The Scarlet Letter. Girl just wanted to get her groove on.
–Gregor Samsa in The Metamorphosis. Doomed to be drowned in Raid.
–Ivan Ilyich in The Death of Ivan Ilyich. The title says it all but oh! what horror he lives until then…especially in that last hour.
–The demon-possessed woman in The Brothers Karamazov. She was so stressed out and overworked, she needed to become posessessed to get a break. Maybe she worked at Amazon’s warehouse?
–The lovers in any romance novel. Just let them get together already!
