The 50 Most Hated Characters in Literary History

You read the books, but not all characters are likable (just like real life). This list will no doubt spark discussion both for who it includes and for who it omits. I won’t tell you who is number one, but you know Scarlet O’Hara is on this list. Melanie made it, too.

4.) Scarlett O’Hara

Gone With the Wind

Author: Margaret Mitchell

For every fan who finds Scarlett O’Hara romantic and admirable, there is another who thinks her a selfish, altogether loathsome figure with few redeeming qualities.

48.) Melanie Hamilton Wilkes

Gone With the Wind

Author: Margaret Mitchell

Along with chief romantic rival Scarlett O’Hara, Melanie Hamilton Wilkes garners quite a bit of hatred as well. Many readers think of her as far too perfect to be relatable, insufferable at worst and boring at best.
