Follow Friday Question: “Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one?”
A: Since I just came off a weekend binge of watching the newest Jane Eyre movie, I’m gonna have to go with Mr. Rochester. He’s not truly depicted as a “bad guy” in the book, but if you think about it- he definitely is.
I mean, he stashes away his crazy wife in his attic, while he spends as much time away from Thornfield mansion as possible. Then, Jane comes into the picture and he seriously tries to MARRY HER, while technically still married to crazy mcgee. (Sorry if this is insensitive- I’m tired and kind of loopy from lack of sleep).
So yeah. Mr. Rochester is kind of a jerk- BUT…he’s got so many redeeming qualities. Like being deep and wounded and vulnerable. I’ll continue to root for him every time I read the book or watch the movie. 😀
What evil book villian have you secretly rooted for?
