The first thing that hit me when I began reading DWJ last summer is  that most of her obvious villians are women.  The interesting  thing is that they're *strong* women.  The bad men are usually bad  because of weak characters.
  I suppose this has been talked through already on this list! :)

Speaking of CS Lewis, has anyone else been voting in the Big Bad Read for
their favourite literary villain?

No DWJ Jones villains though, but I suppose we could make our own list...

The Companion in Dogsbody?
That horrible woman in The Merlin Conspiracy whose name has escaped me?

(notices they're all women)
