Blog Hops: Winning Villian

Today's Follow Friday question over at Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read is:

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

There is an out of print book by Bentley Little called The Mailman that I just love.  If you ever see it in a used bookstore, grab it up!

It's a horror book where the new mailman in town is completely (and wonderfully) creepy.

Sometimes I can help but root for the totally creepy.  ;)

  7. Awesome choice! I've read a couple books in the past where I totally wanted the villain to win. I LOVE it when an author can make me root for the bad guy!

  11. I'm not sure I want to read this book, lol. I do like creepy, though, so I'm sure I'd get a kick out of it. Ha!

  12. I haven't read too much horror, comes with being afraid of the dark I guess, and I'd hate to be afraid of the postman! He brings nice things in jiffy bags!

  17. Sometimes I can root for the creepy guy if he's really clever and smart. Love to read a good horror book once in awhile.

  18. Ooh, I've never heard of that before but it seems like such an awesome book! Who doesn't love a creepy thriller every once in a while? I sure do! Although I don't usually do too good with horror. LOL.

  24. Not to big on Horror. I used to be into it, or think I was but then the nightmares started and I realized it's not for me!

    Oh well, have a great weekend!

  25. I don't stomach horror stories too well... Which is probably why I never came in contact with a book where the antagonist is creepy to the point that he's likable. LOL =] Great post!

    New follower. Thanks for stopping by my blog! =]

  26. Haha ... what an unusual reason to root for the villain ;-)

  27. Nothing I love more then scouring charity shops for second hand books, so many gems! Thanks for the follow, following back!

  28. Good answer, but a lot of people haven't wanted to see the villain win. Thanks for an original answer!

  29. Thanks for dropping by. Woah, just by seeing the title, it promises some creepiness alright. New follow.

  30. Thanks for hopping through my blog!

    It feels so good to find a kindred answer! Okay, mine were not out of a horror story, but that is because I am a bit of a craven and sometimes cannot sleep after too much horror ;)
