This post is for the Aberration Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Lisa Regan's second novel, Aberration.
We were to choose 5 character's in literature, movies, or television which best describes aberration.
Here is the definition of ABERRATION:
1 : the fact or an instance of deviating or being aberrant especially from a moral standard or normal state
2 : unsoundness or disorder of the mind
3 : an aberrant individual
— ab·er·ra·tion·al adjective
From the Merriam Webster Online Dictionary
My first choice is Norman Bates portrayed by Anthony Perkins in Psycho. By today's standards he probably isn't creepy enough. Though, Norman definitely was unsound and had a disorder of the mind.
Secondly there is Glenn Close in the movie Fatal Attraction. These first two character are the worst kind of an aberration, because you're fooled into thinking a person is totally normal until their dark side comes out.
Glenn Close portrays Alexander Forrest, a publishing editor who has an affair with a married man, Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas) while his wife is away for the weekend. He thinks it's a just a fling, but little does he know, Alex is a total loon. Aberration is the perfect word for Alex's and Norman's characters.
Next is VOLDMORT!
And what about Heath Ledger's Oscar winning performance in the movie BATMAN as the JOKER!
This character fully describes an aberration.
Who could ever forget Sir Anthony Hopkins
as HANNIBAL LECTOR in the Silence of the Lambs.
A lethal man-eater.
Aberration describes countless character's in movies, television and literature, all of whom we take eerie pleasure to watch and read about.
My debut novel, Wickedly They Come will be released sometime this fall, I hope. I have a couple of persons that could be considered an aberration, though, I chose one of the main characters, Asa Trebane, supreme leader of The Black Order of the Cult. A powerful and wicked sorcerer, Asa is a self-made billionaire, suave and debonair who pays homage to, of course, Satan.
I thank Lisa Regan who organized this blog hop and wish her success with today's release of her second novel, ABERRATION. Please visit Lisa Regan's blog to learn more.
