The Time-Traveler's Wife. I was so mad at what a weak female character Clare was. She has no personality and her entire existence revolves around waiting for Henry to come back to her. Even in the book's title, her identity is created in relation to him. It was very disappointing, coming from a female author. I also found it very distracting how she constantly name-dropped Chicago locations, and I couldn't tell if that was because I knew nearly everywhere she was talking about or if it would be distracting to anyone regardless of their familiarity with the places.
