Welcome to My Book Musings! Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read. It’s purpose is to gain and meet new friends and followers.
This week's question is interesting, as usual!
Can I get a hands up for all who loved Snape? I mean, he was a really loathsome character in the first few books of Harry Potter. Then, when I got to know him and his story, and his incredible intelligence as shown in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, he intrigued me. And when I read the last book and he died and his true character was revealed, I was just devastated. I loved Harry Potter, but the character of Snape is also a huge factor for my being a fan of the series/film. "Always" is now eternally marked in my mind, and I usually say it with a dramatic sigh.
Aside from the character itself, I have to give props to Alan Rickman himself. Such a good actor! Plus, his voice lent real credibility to the villain-ness of the character. I liked Rickman even more when I heard him reading one of my favorite poems, Sonnet 130 by Shakespeare (enjoy listening!).
How about you, who's your favorite villain?
