This week's question comes from Mia who blogs at Girl About Books:
"Who's your all-time favorite book villain?"
My answer: Could I argue that Raskolnikov is a villain in Crime and Punishment? His theory and violent acts are definitely villainous, but there is so much depth to his character that even though he commits heinous acts of violence, one begins to forgive him by the end after seeing his suffering and slow redemption, both internally and externally in his exile to Siberia. Does this make him a villain? Not to mention, Crime and Punishment is my favorite book.
