Looking for villainous heroes/heroines
(12-05-2010, 03:59 PM)Bellatrix Lestrange Wrote: Perfume was fantastic! If you really want to get into the mind of a creep, you can't get better than "Lolita" by Vladimir Nabokov. Its written from the perspective of a pedophile/poet who falls "in love" with a really young girl. Its really weird because the reader ends up sympathizing whith him for a long time and it forces you to question your definition of good vs perverse. Its quite interesting and psycological.
Crime and Punishment is technically written from the villain's point of view, but it's quite heavy.

Thank you! I will try to read both of them. I've never read one of the Russian classics because of the daunting size, but I'm reading so much these days, I think perhaps it won't take as long as back in the days when I still had to go to work and stuff.
I'll report later, also on "Angelique's descent", which I haven't started yet.
