What is your favorite villain from a book?This question is harder than I thought. I was like YES A QUESTION FOR THE VILLAINS Then I realized all my favorite villains were on TV shows. For some reason when I think back to the books I've read I don't remember the villains very well at all. And it's not because they're not there but for some reason in the sea of books I've read I've lost the pieces of their backstory.
The notable exception is He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named so I suppose he must be my favorite villian. What makes him so interesting? While he seems like evil incarnate, he started as a lonely, sad and confused boy. We get to see the path that made him evil. I hate hate hate when villians are just evil without any reason or character development. I prefer when you can see where everything went wrong.
So I'm not sure why I remember villains so well on TV shows. Who knows! My favorite of them all is Ben Linus from Lost. I love the "Is he evil or is he good" debate we constantly had. I'm also very much enjoying Regina and Mr. Gold from Once Upon A Time because part of them once to be good but parts of them just love magic too much. It's an interesting dilemma.
(This is a quick answer. There are probably much better answers but I could not come up with one sorry)
