Book Blog Hop: Who Is Your Favorite Villain?

Book Blogger Hop
Crazy for Books has a weekly meme for book lovers and book bloggers. It’s a convenient and fun way to discover new blogs, just in case you didn’t already have a litany on your blog roll.

Each week there is a question asked for bloggers to answer, and this week’s question is:

“Who’s your all-time favorite book villain?”

For me, I believe I would choose Randall Flagg from Stephen King’s The Stand. The guy was evil personified, and when you take a look at the story, he really doesn’t do a whole helluva lot. He basically pulls everybody’s strings. Oh, he gets his hands dirty once in a while, but more often than not he just leads people astray and gives them just enough rope to hang themselves.

Plus, the TV movie adaptation featured Flagg with a surprisingly effective mullet and Canadian tuxedo (all denim attire). The guy on the left look familiar? I believe he was on Law & Order for quite a few years. How ’bout that?

The more you know.
