Hey, /lit/, are there any good books where the obvious villain is the protagonist, and wins? I recently read Cask of Amontillado, and thought,"what if a book had the complexity of The Count of Monte Cristo, mixed with the general perspective of Cask of Amont?"
I'm tired of the hero winning so often. It's so droll.

I don't remember the last book that I read with a hero and a villian...

Sounds like you need antiheroes. White Tiger might be what you're after. Also Oskar in the Tin Drum does some nasty shit.

Well I'm reading all of Lady Snowblood and Yuki is a nasty person. She makes a butler rape the daughter of his master, and later on kills a sick nobleman's daughter by having so much sex with her she dehydrates and dies.

Good vs Bad is a stupid creation of the christianism (that doesn't exists in the bible).

Are you reading too much comics.

Starship Troopers

>>7678383
it's a whole genre. it's called horror. its specifically for people who dont want a happy ending.
>>

nope. evil is the corruption of gods will. good vs bad does not exist in the christian canon. that is propaganda. whites vs the evil brutish negro for example.

of course sympathy for the devil exists as a trope where the author intentionally blurs the lines between the two to confuse the protagonist and reader. although it's all just a false dichotomy.

The Stranger

Anyone else stop even thinking in terms of happy/sad endings and more on whats the natural outcome of the elements present?

WWII

Have you read The Tell-tale Heart?
It's my favorite Poe story

The Idiot

I thought droll meant boring/uninteresting.
>>7678389
I actually ask because of a film, rather than a book. Cape Fear was great except the ending.

The word you're looking for is probably "dull".
