9 Book Villains You Love to Hate
Sometimes it's just better (or at least more fun) to be bad…. Last week we asked on Facebook and Twitter: Who's your favorite book villain? Your top answers are below!
It by Stephen King
"The face of the clown in the stormdrain was white, there were funny tufts of red hair on either side of his bald head, there was a big clown-smile painted over his mouth… Then the clown's face changed."
A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin
"She never forgets a slight, real or imagined. She takes caution for cowardice and dissent for defiance. And she is greedy. Greedy for power, for honour, for love."
A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
"His face was unshaven, and rather than two eyebrows, like most human beings have, he had just one long one. His eyes were very, very shiny, which made him look both hungry and angry."
The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman
"I don't feel sad…. I don't feel scared…. I don't feel happy. I'm just…here. That's my strength. That's why I'm alive. You tell me I have to crush a field of babies to keep breathing? Sure."
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
"Levana's face was fiercely beautiful. Breathtaking in her viciousness."
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
"He is the Napoleon of crime, Watson…. He sits motionless, like a spider in the center of its web, but that web has a thousand radiations, and he knows well every quiver of each of them."
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
"They found Professor Umbridge already seated at the teacher's desk, wearing the fluffy pink cardigan of the night before and the black velvet bow on top of her head. Harry was again reminded forcibly of a large fly perched unwisely on top of an even larger toad."
Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
"The wary dislike stamped on his face was mingled with a touch of superstitious awe. After all, when you turn someone out into the midst of a pack of wolves on a cold winter evening, you rather expect them to cooperate by being eaten forthwith."
