RE: What kinds of feelings does Boaty Glass stir in you?

I thought Boaty Glass was one of the many characters in the book who evolved slowly and well. In the beginning, I sort of felt sorry for him even though he was rich -- mainly because he couldn't buy love even with all that wealth. Plus he seemed so desperately alone. But the way he treated Sylvan in the end just totally made me despise him. What a vile human being! If he couldn't have Sylvan, then nobody else could have her. You begin to realize there was a reason for his loneliness.

I didn't really care for him from the start, and after what he did to Sylvan once he found out the truth, I really did not like him at all! I did not feel sorry for him. He thought that his money could take care of anything, yet in the end it couldn't keep his wife from continuing to lie about Charlie.

I didn't like Boaty from the beginning. In my opinion he showed his true colors in the 2nd half of the book. The violence and anger were there all along and I suspected very early on that he would be abusive to Sylvan at some point.

I agree with the others, I don't think he had any redeeming features. Somehow, his wealth and sense of entitlement made me like him even less.

Did not like Boaty Glass from the start. He thinks he is better than everyone else. He thinks money can buy him happiness and make people like him. Boaty Glass'es best friend is Boaty Glass.

In the beginning, I felt some sympathy for him. Struggled in school, lonely guy, etc. However my sympathy soon turned into complete dislike. By the end, I couldn't stand the guy.

I have to agree with the other posts. Boaty Glass was certainly not a very likeable character.

Hmm, that's true. I certainly felt all along that the obnoxiousness was bound to show up sooner or later :) but in the beginning I could at least feel some sort of empathy for a guy who was so alone. In the end of course I felt as if he brought on all that misery!

Disgust. Boaty Glass thought the world was his on a string and that money bought anything he wanted, even a wife. A wife who "obeyed" him because of his contract with her father when he "bought" her; just another of those objects which money acquired for Boaty. Usually the villain of a book has at least one redeeming feature, but I failed to find any for Boaty.

I didn't like him, as most have said. A very unlikeable character!

I agree at first you could be empathetic with his situation but after he purchases Sylvan you soon realize what a despicable and abusive character he is with absolutely no conscience or feeling.

Boaty is a pathetic character. Sadly, he is a character who will not feel goodness or encounter redemption

What kind of feelings? Disgust mostly. There may have been a brief moment, early in the book, where i felt sorry for him. Those feelings didn't last very long. There was not very much likable about Boaty.

I agree with everyone. My feelings of empathy were very short lived. He was a disgusting person.

Very unlikeable character - he really didn't have any redeeming characteristics.

Boaty Glass was an absent character for me. With so many things happening because of him...he didn't seem to be in the literal picture/writing very much.

I felt sorry for him in the beginning, but soon came to despise him and everything he stood for. He really was not concerned about anyone but himself.

Dislike and a modicum of pity. Overall - I saw him as a bully who ultimately got what he deserved. He obviously was emotionally abused growing up and perpetuated his abuse. He was a person who had no friends and used his money to get attention.

I didn't like him...in fact, he scared me. He was a bully and had no respect for women.

He disgusted me. The author's descriptions of his physical characteristics, as well as his vulgarity caused me to dislike him even before I read about his "purchase" of Sylvan, and then subsequent mistreatment of her.

Yes. A real snake-in-the-grassy that Boaty.

Boaty is a sad and lonely person that used in wealth and vile nature to hid his unhappiness. I had strong feelings about the abuse of power and mistreatment of women in a marriage so I greatly disliked his character.

I did not like Boaty, all of his money seemed only to perpetuate his unpleasantness.
