Q. Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one??

A. This weeks question is definitely one that makes you think. I'm having a bit of a hard time thinking of an answer to it.

Usually readers kind of bond with the hero of a story and are on their side rooting for them. If a reader doesn't really seem to care what happens to the hero then perhaps there was a bit of an issue with the authors development of that character. But on the other hand it could have been done on purpose, and the author actually wants you to root for the villain in the story.

At the moment I can't really think of a book I've read where I've been leaning towards wanting the villain to win instead of the hero. I'll definitely be thinking on it today and if I think of one I'll be sure to update.

Happy Friday lovelies!


  1. We have pretty much the same answer, although I think your's is a bit better explained :)

  2. It was pretty tough for me to come up with one as well. I know there have to be more but nothing came right into my mind. I am a new follower.

  3. I struggled too! My answer is kinda twisted in some ways but I decided to make it work!

  5. I could only think of gray villains that I wanted to win, like Snape. I wouldn't have minded if he hadn't died in Deathly Hallows. But, his death was very poignant, so I understand as well.

  7. I agree that the author's development of the character can have a huge affect on how much we love the character--regardless of whether the development is for the hero or the villain. The more interesting the character--the more we care about them (in my humble opinion). I think that is why I like character interviews on blog tours--a chance to get even deeper inside an interesting character.
