    Righto, our favourite villains at Boomerang Books are Voldemort (Harry Potter), Gargamel (The Smurfs – is that a book?), Nurse Ratched (One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest), Big Brother (1984), Brother Leon and The Goober (Chocolate War) and Rastapopoulos (Tintin).

    From Greg James: The Golliwogs in Noddy & Big Ears! I still have nightmares.

  3. Boomer Says:

    From Anna Valdinger: The Mayor out of Patrick Ness’s Chaos Walking trilogy (although I haven’t read the last one yet). Eeeeeeevil.

  4. Boomer Says:

    From Fiona McKenzie: Severus Snape…. Favourite double crosser of all time

    It’s got to be Professor Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes’ nemesis. Holmes keeps thinking he’s beaten him, but back he comes in the next story – evil AND indestructible.

    My most unfavourite villain is Satan, who is cast as God’s nemesis in The Bible. He seems to be a particularly nasty piece of work. Mind you, there aren’t too many critics who have reviewed the Bible who opt to give him the benefit of any doubt.
    That said, in a, ‘Predator vs Satan’ battle I know who I’d have my 2 bucks on.
