Pride and Prejudice | Jane Austen

To Pemberley, therefore, they were to go." Chapter 42

I always love when I reach this line. In the original publication of 3 Volumes, this was the end of Volume 2. My favorite part of the story is coming. #PemberLittens we're going to Pemberley! ?

julieclair I didn‘t get to this one this month 😕, but I still want to, so I will avoid the discussion to prevent spoilers. 😎 3w
Crinoline_Laphroaig @julieclair no worries! I won't tag you in discussion post. Just pop back to it whenever you're ready. I completely understand. I've read less this month than I have in long time. 3w

#Pemberlittens itt's time for #JaneAdjacent Book Club! Spoilers and my answers in comments.
1️⃣ I originally read couple of years ago. Planning on reading rest of Trilogy for #AusteninAugust 2024. So this was a nice refresher. I did all the formats. Swapped between print, ebook, and audio.

2️⃣ Fanny. I just loved her. (See favorite quotes.) ⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig 3️⃣ Big reveal when Mary gets everything wrong but somehow everything right.

4️⃣ "In that moment, Mary abandoned everything that she had been taught as a woman of proper breeding: she ran."

“I would give anyone up for five pound. I won‘t make a boffle of it.”

“It appears I‘m late to this discussion,” said Fanny. ⬇️

2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig 5️⃣ While I would love to speak perfect French wouldn't get to use that talent much in rural Oklahoma. It would however be useful to be able to draw plans for my garden.

6️⃣ Y'all know I love to dress up so definitely new ball gown.

7️⃣ Definitely gave me new prospective. How Jane and Elizabeth being close, as well as Kitty and Lydia being silly together would leave Mary on outside. ⬇️

2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig 8️⃣ I love how this book and others are making Mary the main character. I actually have a @goodreads shelf dedicated to Mary Bennet retellings. 🎩📖📚

willaful 1. First read, ebook. It was a little slow for my tastes but I think Mary is very well drawn.

2mo
willaful 2. I liked the plucky woman with the baby. Mary took a lot of risks, especially there, but she definitely picked the right co-conspirator. 😁 2mo
willaful 3. I think mine was also Fanny coming in and regretting missing the earlier events. She's got a good sense of humor and I'll enjoy seeing her again if I continue the series. 2mo
willaful 4, Favorite quote, also “It appears I‘m late to this discussion,” said Fanny. 2mo
willaful 5. I'd love to be able to speak another language but not French. If those are my only choices, I'd pick drawing. 2mo
willaful 6. I'm very lucky in that my mom makes me custom made dresses that are also extremely comfy, so I don't have to choose! 😎 2mo
willaful 7. The author did an excellent job of creating Mary's inner life so we can understand her. I definitely sympathize with her feelings of being out of place and awkward, and especially her grief over her father not speaking to her before he died. I'm so glad she got to read his letter. 2mo
willaful 8. I'm pretty sure Mary is intended to be autistic and I'd say it's very well done. Although I didn't love the book, I might read on to see how Mary's character develops. (edited) 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @willaful it felt like a lot of set up. But now that's out of the way I'm looking forward to book 2. Plan on reading this summer. Will see how it goes. Woman with baby was a hoot. They need to recruit her as a spy. 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @willaful so glad you joined in! 2mo
willaful I forgot to add, I really like all the precise historical details. Fascinating times before envelopes! 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @willaful it was fascinating! And that sender didn't pay postage. 2mo
willaful @Crinoline_Laphroaig Yeah, an odd system. I wonder what the justification was. 2mo
