'This Week's Word' is Very Interesting!

Welcome everyone! I'm so happy you stopped by again for This Week's Word!

I came across this word in a book I was reading and . . . I had to look it up because I didn't know what it meant. Let me know in the comment section if you knew what it meant before you read below! I'd love to hear from you. 

Misanthrope

Misanthropy is the general hatred, dislike, distrust or contempt of the human species, human behavior and/or human nature. A misanthrope or misanthropist is someone who holds such views or feelings. The word's origin is from the Greek words μσος (mīsos, "hatred") and νθρωπος (ānthropos, "man, human"). The condition is often confused with asociality.

Misanthropy may be motivated by feelings of isolation or social alienation, or simply contempt for the prevailing characteristics of humanity. Misanthropy is commonly misinterpreted and distorted as a widespread and individualized hatred of humans.


Not only did I learn about the word "Misanthrope" but I could relate the word to a character in
DECADENT DECEPTIONS, and erotic historical novel I wrote some time ago.  The book is not only charged with erotic sex scenes between Morgan and Olivia, it's also a THRILLER with lots of suspense. 

The character who reminds me of a Misanthrope is the villain, of course. I suppose he has a reason to hate mankind, especially prostitutes from the local brothel, but he has little regard for life. 

This villain, in particular, kills because he dislikes human behavior.  I think you'd enjoy DECADENT DECEPTIONS if you like the mix of erotic romance, suspense and thrillers!
