A weekly meme hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy For Books.
This week's topic is from Mia @ Girl About Books:
Who's your all-time favorite book villain?
Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris comes immediately to mind. He is such a complex, perhaps even sympathetic character with a brilliant mind but a horrific impulse that bears his nickname "Hannibal the Cannibal." He is a fascinating character to read, but Anthony Hopkins makes him all the more real with his characteristic creepy "sucking air" sound and that eerie, oddly charming drawl.
Honourable mentions should be made to the following fantastic literary villains:
Pinky from Brighton Rock by Graham Greene
Gonneril & Regan from King Lear by William Shakespeare
George Harvey from The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
Mrs. Carmody from The Mist by Stephen King
Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey
Mr. Hyde from Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
Jim Rennie from Under the Dome by Stephen King
Who is your favourite literary villain?
Have a great weekend :)
