Thad Brown Only one of the ten stories in my collection, The Smoking Gun Sisterhood, has a main character who's an assassin; but I added it just now on the strength of that one story!


message 2: by Matthew Ulmer (new)

Matthew Ulmer Can someone please explain to me who is the assassin in the hunger games? Oh, that's right, there isn't one. Middle school girls are just stupid.

Love_books GOD!!! i get it some people really loves a certain books but that doesnt mean you have to add them to every single list you come across, randomly, just cuz u like them even if they dont actually belong in there thats just plain stupid. just becuz a psycho killer is going around and killing people doesnt make him a freaking assassin. GO GET A DICTIONARY AND LOOK UP AT THE WORD!!!

message 6: by cacinta (new)

cacinta Hunger Games: I was wondering the same thing myself, but then remembered. Yes, there is an assassin character, or more like the character turned into an assassin in the third book. So yeah, I voted for Mockingjay, although I liked the first two books better. *shrugs*


message 7: by Shacoria (new)

Shacoria The main character is not an assasin in mockingjay, granted people in the book have to kill, but that's only for their own survival. They're not paid to kill


message 8: by Caitlin (new)

Caitlin Noticed a fee books on the list that I have read but I do not remember any assassins in any of them! Yes people kill and people die but there are no assasins in them! Only one book that I have read in the list has a hit-woman/assassin. Peopledon't vote on a list unless you know what an assassin or contract killer, hit-men, they are hired to kill someone for money and they can refuse a hit (unlike katniss from the hunger games who is not and never becomes an assassin)


message 9: by Simon (new)

Simon not being sexiest or anything, but i find it funny that most of the assassins/main characters of this books are female goes to show how the tide has changed and what was once new has now become mainstream


message 10: by RAI (last edited Aug 04, 2013 01:23PM) (new)

RAI Mistwood by Leah Cypress should be on this list!!! And why the hell was Bloodlines by Richelle Mead on this list?!


message 11: by Werner (new)

Werner Marshanah, Caitlin, and Love_books, if you're a Goodreads librarian, you can remove inappropriately listed books from this or other Goodreads lists, by clicking the faint gray "edit" link in the list description to activate that function. (I have librarian status myself, but I'm reluctant to remove books I haven't personally read.) You can also add any book you think should be on the list (there's an "add books" link near the top of the list page, as well).


message 12: by Chance (last edited Sep 19, 2013 12:43PM) (new)

Chance Kate Daniels - Not an assassin. Sorry, folks.

And neither is Kvothe.. (The Kingkiller Chronicle) They are great books, but don't put them on the list just because you like them. You'll ruin the list.


Sarah (CoolCurryBooks) 12> Well, Kate was trained to assassinate her father. Not that we've even seen her father yet...


message 14: by Werner (new)

Werner Coolcurry, my impression is that the list was created for books where the main character is currently an assassin, and actually practicing that trade in the particular book that's listed. That would seem to be the kind of book that fans looking for reads with an assassin motif would actually be the most interested in, if they're using this list to get reading suggestions.


message 15: by Thad (new)

Thad Brown As I noted in message one, only one story (out of ten) in my collection The Smoking Gun Sisterhood, "'Tis the Season," actually fits the criteria for this list; but that one does have a heroine who's a professional hit woman. If anyone's interested (and I only mention it because it's been out of print for some time) that book has finally been reprinted, and here's the link for more information: www.amazon.com/The-Smoking-Gun-Sister... .


message 16: by Melinda (new)

Melinda Brasher What is the obsession with main character assassins? I find it very creepy. We don't admire murderers, in general, yet all sorts of people say, "I love [fill in the blank assassin character] because she's such a strong female!" So..."strong" equals "kills for money?" And then, the ubercreepy: "We need more strong female characters like [fill in the blank assassin] to empower young women." So..."empower" equals "tell people it's great to kill other people?" I find this very, very disturbing. Does anyone else?


message 17: by Thad (new)

Thad Brown Melinda, you raise a fair question, with some valid reasoning behind it. The creator of this list, Danielle, is the co-mod of a group I'm in, and I know she'll have an articulate and well-thought-out answer; but I want to share my own response, too.

First, not everyone who creates a list or votes on it necessarily has a "obsession" with whatever type of book is featured on it. Usually, people create Goodreads lists simply because they think a certain type of book is distinctive enough, and has enough people who sometimes seek out reads of that type, to warrant a list for reading guidance. And people may add books to it, or vote for books they've happened to read, because they fit the list criteria; it doesn't mean those books are the main type of thing the person reads. (In my own case, I've only ever written one story about an assassin, and have read very few books or stories with such characters.)

You're right that admiring the act of killing others for money as a sign of strength and power is deeply unhealthy, whether the killer is male or female (this list actually features both genders). But I don't think everyone who might decide that he/she wants to read about an assassin character is drawn by sick admiration. I know a psychologist who's quite fascinated by books featuring serial killers (although I'm not attracted to those reads at all). She doesn't admire the latter, but she finds it interesting and instructive to explore their psychology, what made them what they are and how they live with it on a daily basis. Some of us find that assassins can make interesting protagonists in the same way. I say "can," because they don't always; it depends on the moral vision and literary skill of the writer. Personally, I think assassins who have no consciences and just kill mechanically for the cash, or who take a warped pleasure in killing for its own sake because they're psychopaths, actually aren't very interesting; they're simply shallow cartoons of evil. The interest comes when you encounter assassin characters who have some psychological complexity, who have consciences and principles that they have to somehow reconcile with what they do.

Related to that is the fact that contract killing is an extreme premise that, like all extreme premises, can set up very stark and intense explorations of ethical choices, and the human emotions surrounding them. (Good and evil, guilt and redemption, are the themes of the greatest literature; and the careers of assassins can be the stuff of those themes.) And the choices can involve shades of gray, because not all assassins are moral clones of each other and not all assassinations are morally equivalent. (Greg Rucka's Tara Chace, for instance, is an assassin for British Intelligence, who takes out terrorists and other evildoers; like all assassins, she kills in cold blood on a pretty regular basis, but she's not necessarily a morally evil woman as such.)

I don't know whether any of this is a valid answer to your question; but it's how I look at the issues involved.


message 18: by Melinda (new)

Melinda Brasher I mostly agree with or understand what you said, Thad, and I didn't mean to say that the list creator was obsessed. It's just the fact that so many of these books exist and have fans that makes me think we as a public are obsessed.

If these books really explored the moral gray areas and themes of redemption and ends justifying means and all those interesting topics, I wouldn't be so disturbed.

I suppose my view has been colored by one particular assassin book I just read where the heroine has no remorse, no guilt, no self-doubt about the ethics of her career, no trauma. She's not hardened and disassociated from the acts either. There's very little in the way of psychological study. And the reviews are ALL like "I love [character]! She rocks! She's so kickbutt!" I can't find a single one--not a single one--that's disturbed about the casual, callous nature of her killing.


message 19: by Melinda (new)

Melinda Brasher Now, Graceling, for example, is well done. Katsa doesn't like the killing and tries to subvert the king who's forced her into the life. Then she figures out how to escape and stop killing for him.

In Poison Study, Valek is an assassin, but we get the impression he doesn't like that aspect of his job. He's doing it for the greater good of the kingdom, against political targets. His government isn't all good or bad, but they took over from a worse government. His work as an assassin has been vital to their success. It's that interesting moral gray area.

But this book I just read...it was like a high school love story where the main character just happened to be an assassin.


message 20: by Melinda (new)

Melinda Brasher Games of Thrones--I haven't read far enough in the series to really explore Arya's situation, but I'd bet George R.R. Martin sheds a lot of gray on her life too.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) I don't think I could answer it any better than Thad did.

I think it's like any subject, you either find it compelling and want to read about it or don't. It's fiction, so I don't think there is room to make moral judgments on people's reading tastes. Just because someone wants to read a book about assassins doesn't mean that the reader approves of killing people. You're reading a book about someone else's reality to see things through their eyes, and exploring what causes a person to kill as a vocation (either out of necessity or for financial reasons) raises questions the reader can ponder in a safe way.

I don't think all of the people who vote on this list would even have the same tastes in books, even though we all like to read books about assassins.

Kalia Shacoria wrote: "The main character is not an assasin in mockingjay, granted people in the book have to kill, but that's only for their own survival. They're not paid to kill"

I think it's because they were attempting to assassinate the president in Mockingjay.


message 23: by Sparrowlicious (last edited Jul 21, 2014 02:26AM) (new)

Sparrowlicious Well, how interesting. I wonder if there could be a list with this exact same topic but WITHOUT YA books.


Sarah (CoolCurryBooks) Sparrowlicious wrote: "Well, how interesting. I wonder if there could be a list with this exact same topic but WITHOUT YA books."

Oh yeah, there could be. Farseer and Night Angel for example are both non-YA, but the YA align with the general age of many people on this site. I.e. they have fan girls who will vote them onto everything.


message 25: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Oh yes I can certainly see an assassin in the children's book Love you Forever. Maybe that is how the mother died, the baby grew up and killed her by assassination. I'm sorry but people really need to look up what the word assassin means. I mean come on someone even voted for it. I mean really an assassin in Marley and me a book about a dog. Its a "get your head out your ass" moment.


message 26: by Werner (new)

Werner Nicole, I and other Goodreads librarians (and Danielle, as the list creator) can remove books from lists if they don't belong there. We're threatened with dire consequences if we remove things improperly, so usually I'm reluctant to do so unless I've read the book myself. But I'm willing to take a look at the book descriptions for these; and if there's no way the protagonist could be an assassin, I'll stick my neck out and delete them. But can you cite the number of these books on the list? With a list this size, finding them by number is a LOT faster than having to scroll through page after page hunting them (especially if somebody's already removed them, but didn't post a notice about doing so!).

Danielle, along the lines of Nicole's comment, there are a lot of urban fantasy books on here that I haven't read personally, but that I really doubt have assassin characters; I think some people are confusing monster hunters with assassins. You've read most of those books and would be better qualified to make the judgment, but you might want to look at these. (I didn't cite specific titles or numbers because there are so many; it seems like you can find them on most of the pages!)


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) I'm not a librarian, so I cannot delete titles.


message 28: by Werner (last edited Jan 09, 2015 08:12AM) (new)

Werner Hmmmm! Danielle, when I said "librarian," I meant a "Goodreads librarian" (which is just a status Goodreads gives to members who've added a certain number of books, and who are trusted to make edits to the database), not a librarian who works in a library. I'm that, too; but you don't have to be in order to be a Goodreads librarian. I didn't apply for my status, and don't remember how I was told I have it (it was several years ago); but I'm sure you meet the qualifications, too. You might be a Goodreads librarian without knowing it! And I think list creators can delete books from their own lists (though not from other people's lists); but I could be mistaken on that point.

If you find any books that you know should be deleted from this list, and can't delete them, just identify them in a comment here, and I'll delete them for you! I'm always glad to help out where I can.


message 29: by Werner (new)

Werner Danielle, a quick question: when you go to the first page of the list itself, right after the list description, do you have a tiny gray link that says "edit?"


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) Hi Werner. I tried to post a reply last night on my phone and it was not cooperating. I meant Goodreads Librarian. To answer your question, yes, I can access the 'edit' screen, but it only allows me to edit the description and to delete duplicates. I am not able to delete other books added by people.


message 31: by Werner (last edited Jan 09, 2015 08:25AM) (new)

Werner Danielle, that's interesting to know! When I click the edit link, underneath the "check for duplicates" option, it gives me a "remove particular books" option. But if your screen doesn't have that, it must mean that mine does only because of my librarian status. Bummer! When you create a list, you ought to have the right to edit it! (But maybe the Goodreads program won't allow them to give an individual that second option on some lists but not others; I don't know much about what they can or can't program the system to do. :-( It might be worth asking about that in the Goodreads Feedback group, though!)


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) I guess they don't want there to be malicious behavior between members. If you don't like someone, deleting their books off your list.


message 33: by Werner (new)

Werner Yes, that might factor into their thinking, too. But I think it would make more sense to just penalize individuals, who abuse the privilege with improper deletions, than to not to let list creators delete individual books at all (unless they happen to also be librarians). After all, a list creator is the one who knows best what type of books he/she had in mind in creating the list! But maybe that's just me. :-)


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) I completely agree. It's frustrating because I've had people abusing lists I've created, and I post that they need to remove the books.

I don't want to commit to being a Goodreads Librarian right now.


message 35: by Werner (last edited Jan 09, 2015 09:54AM) (new)

Werner Danielle wrote: "I don't want to commit to being a Goodreads Librarian right now." I hear you! In my case, I don't spend much time doing "librarian-ly" things --mostly just correcting obvious typos, adding contributors to anthologies I'm reviewing, or once in awhile combining duplicate records. But anytime you need a book deleted from one of your lists, just let me know, and I'll see to it that it's removed, ASAP!

503, 540, 564, 566. All of them are on page 6.


message 38: by Werner (new)

Werner Thanks, Nicole! Just now, I deleted the last three (and another one that had no business being on this list, Stephenie Meyer's The Host). Someone else apparently already deleted the first one.

Grace I put I am Grimalkin because it is a book of it's series which features a qualified assain, is that ok?

Werner Grace, I haven't read I Am Grimalkin myself, but the title character is described as an assassin in the Goodreads book description; that should probably tell us something!

Would be nice.

Werner Nicole, I've (finally!) located and deleted Love You Forever from this list. I agree that it totally didn't belong here!

Preach it!

Jim Guenther My question is where is Vince Flynn. His writing is excellent and he probes the psychology of an assassin very well in his 14 book series about Mitch Rapp. He would be at the top of my list, but didn't appear to make the top 100 here.

Luna de Selene  Vampire academy?
REALLY?


message 46: by Werner (new)

Werner Vania, I haven't read Vampire Academy, but it seems pretty clear that whatever else they may be, the main characters aren't assassins. What's its current ranking in the list? When a list is this long, that information helps Goodreads librarians in locating and removing it.

Werner Laura, I think I've read a book description with that premise somewhere recently, but I can't remember the author or title of the book. :-( Sorry!

I've just deleted Mockingjay from this list. As a couple of people have noted in the comments above, neither Katniss nor any other characters in that series are assassins, in the sense intended in this list. I've read the whole trilogy myself, including Mockingjay, and will stand on that statement.

I don't know but if you figure it out, can you tell me? It sounds good

Aless I just removed Catching Fire from the list (as in agreement with previous posts about Hunger Games series not matching description of this list).

Werner Scarlet (Scarlet, #1) by A.C. Gaughen by A. C. Gaughen is #34 on this list; but I can't see any indication whatsoever, in the book description or in a review by a Goodreads friend that I've read, that the main character is an assassin. (A thief who's good with knives, yes --but that's not at all the same thing.) Can someone who's read this book and voted for it explain the premise for listing it here?
