It seems like Laura has a much better memory that Iris...and I think that matters. #blindassassinbuddyread #blindass

batsy That's a good point! It's interesting how memory works differently according to one's personality. I guess Iris was the conciliatory one when they were younger, and either naive or willing to be fooled (by people). It's like a lot of Iris' present anger/resentment stems from her realisation of how much she was wrong. Laura strikes me as a tragic Cassandra figure who could "see" too much. 5y
Natasha.C.Barnes @batsy I could not agree with you more!! You've hit everything on the head here and laid it all out. I just accidentally liked my own post trying to like your comment. 😂 5y
batsy @Natasha.C.Barnes 😂 Thank you, it's really fun seeing everyone's interpretations and ideas for this buddy read. It's a perfect book for discussion. 5y

Wholesale ripping off @Riveted_Reader_Melissa 's post format--sorry! But I loved the idea of adding to this investigation board together. I'm looking for clues about Sabrina, though I've read much father ahead and haven't seen anything more... 😆 Still--there does seem to be a very important captive-princess metaphor going on here and now that Sabrina is also connected to that, it may add to our understanding in the future.

Natasha.C.Barnes Whoops! Forgot to add the pins! 😂 oh well! Floating photos. 5y
Cinfhen Great graphics!! I get where you're going with #captiveprincess Good find!!!! 5y
emilyhaldi Love this format 😁 5y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Great job! You can always edit your post and then edit the picture and add them later if you want. Otherwise, I‘ll assume you had post-it sticky paper, so they didn‘t need pins. 👍 5y

Since I started this week's reading, I've been attempting to investigate Sabrina and what on earth happened to her and her mother! Or at the very least to look into how Iris describes her and what that may tell us about Laura or Iris herself. Here, Iris compares Sabrina to Laura twice:

"her grave eyes blue as Laura's"
...
"She takes after Laura in that respect: the same tendency towards absolutism..."

Natasha.C.Barnes Plus that chilling line: "Aimee's death was not my fault." 5y

#BlindAssassinBuddyRead Richard = predator ?"I thought I could cope with Richard, with Winifred. I thought I could live like a mouse in the castle of tigers, by creeping around out of sight inside the walls;by staying quiet, by keeping my head down. I didn't see the danger. I didn't even know they were tigers. Worse: I didn't know I might become a tiger myself. I didn't know Laura might become one, given the proper circumstances." #trouble

batsy I'm starting to fall behind on #blindass. Need to catch up. #predatorsahead 🐅 5y
Cinfhen It's getting really good!! Can't wait to hear your insights @batsy !!!!! 5y
