Unpopular opinion: my favourite character from War and Peace was Hélène.
I read War and Peace so you don't have to.
I don't know if I think this is a good or a bad book.
This summer, I read the classic Anna Karenina by Tolstoy. I absolutely loved it, but not because of the main character Anna.
For my course on Russian literature, I read the novel Oblomov by Ivan Goncharov. Something happened that I never expected: I might have found a main character more annoying than Flaubert’s Emma Bovary.
