Why I Love (Or Seriously Hate)...Dolores Umbridge

Well hello, Wednesday.  We meet again.  Wednesday means it's time for another installation of "Why I Love", a meme hosted by Alexis at Reflections of a Bookaholic.

It's really difficult for me to choose a favorite villain, this week's topic for Why I Love Wednesday.  I haven't read much recently that has a really good villain, which is quite sad.  However, I have come across several villains in the past.  I've written about one, but have decided to go another route this time.  Instead of discussing a villain that I love, I'm going with one that I despise.

My choice for favorite villain is...Dolores Umbridge.  Not because I like her or because she's my favorite anything, but because she is so incredibly horrible.  Maybe more horrible than Voldemort.  Maybe.  I just reread the entire Harry Potter series and it reminded me of how much I hate Umbridge.  She's completely evil and takes so much pleasure in her lofty position and inflicting pain on those with less authority (or whoever she perceives to have a lesser authority).  If you want to see a true villain, look no further than Rowling's Dolores Umbridge.  Pure, sadistic evil and portrayed brilliantly by Imelda Staunton in the movie franchise.

I must not tell lies........

  1. This is such a perfect pick and I think they did an awesome job casting her in the movie! Umbridge worked my entire nerves and boy was I glad when she got it in the movie!

  2. TOTALLY worse than Voldemort. Hands down, most evil villain ever. I get SO ANGRY every time I reread book 5. Which I just did. And Twilight too. Because I'm awesome!

  3. I'm not a Harry Potter fan so I've never even heard of this character, but I'm scared just from the post and comments!

  5. It's that smug smile that makes her all the worse.
