Who is your favorite villain from a book?
As most who follow me know, I'm really into George R.R. Martin's A Song of Fire and Ice series. A character I really like in this series is named Sandor Clegane, or The Hound. He's technically a villain because he's ruthless and brutal, killing people in horrible ways and being an all-around douche bag, but he's a great example of a dynamic villain. He has strange, unexplained compassion for random characters we care about as readers (including Sansa) and we're told his history, which is tragic. Despite his evilness, he's intriguingly...sympathetic. I like him a lot.

How about you? Which book villain is your favorite?


  1. I've never read the Fire and Ice series. I know what you mean, though, about a character not being ALL evil.

  2. Hello,

    I love those types of villains that end up showing compassion!

  4. I haven't actually read the series through, just the first book, but I do watch the show. I like your choice, and explanation. Thank you so much for stopping by my FF. Old follower :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven

  5. I love well-rounded villains. They make a story more complete. I keep meaning to get around to reading that series but a friend spoiled the books. I was so mad!

  6. Hopping through. Sigh. I really need to read GOT. Someday.

  12. Ah, the sympathetic villain! Gotta love those!
    I haven't read the books as I started the tv show first and I can never read a book after I see the movie or watch the tv show! I'm weird that way! Great choice though!
