50/50 Friday is a meme hosted by Carrie @The Butterfly Reads and I and focuses on the opposite sides of books (best/worst, differing opinions, etc). Every week will have a new topic and several advance topics will be listed in the tab labeled 50/50 Friday!
Today’s Topic: Best/Worst Villain
I really love Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles! She’s so evil with a dash of humanity that, while you want to feel sorry for her (Fairest was a wonderful addition!), you also have to admit that she’s a terrible person and does terrible things to her citizens (and people who aren’t her citizens).
While this series does focus more on the romance, I think there was such a missed opportunity to capitalize on the rebels in this series. They could have added some complexity to the story and instead they were used as a vehicle for America and Maxon to be in close quarters together and to provide unrest. They ended up being really faceless and flat. They are developed a little more later in the series but still, not to the extent that they could have been.
Do you agree with me? Who do you think is the best and worst villain? Make a post and link it below!
