Good villains are wonderful and terrible all at the same time. You absolutely hate them, but then you have to give the author props for making them oh-so hateable. Sometimes it’s fun to hate characters, right? Read on to see some of my favorite villains in literature.
1. Dolores Umbridge
THIS B. I can’t write a villain post without including her. In fact, I’m 90% sure she’s the reason I even thought of this post in the first place. WORST EVER.
2. William Hamleigh
In a book this long, it was PAINFUL to read about William. He was a complete TURD and I couldn’t wait to finish the book and see how he was going to get what he deserved. I read this book over ten years ago, and he’s still one of my most memorable villains.
3. View Spoiler »Amy Dunne « Hide Spoiler (If you haven’t read the book/seen the movie)
I have no words for this vile-AF character.
4. Anna Karenina
Maybe this is slightly controversial, but I hated Anna! I hated all the decisions she made and the home-wrecking she did. She was absolutely a villain in my book. She ruined everyone’s lives around her. Let me just say that I think she got what she deserved.
5. Jonathan Randall
Just when I think I can’t list a worse character, I manage to find another one I LOATHED. This awful man made my skin crawl.
Basically she was pretty awful (but I not-so-secretly loved it). Review.
Not the worst villain I’ve encountered in a novel, but in the realm of this book, he repeatedly pissed me off big time. Review.
8. Miss Trunchbull
Um, she’s basically a child abuser. Review.
9. Lord Henry
It was kind of a toss-up who I hated the most in this book, but at the end of the day, Lord Henry was the biggest douche of them all. Review.
And last but not least:
10. The t-rex
Because nothing is worse than a human-eater.
