Ruthiella I think he did a good job of demolishing the prosecution‘s arguments. 👍 2mo
dabbe De-do-do-do de-de-blah-blah-blah is all I want to say to many long-winded chapters (thanks for the assist, The Police). 😃 2mo

Bookwormjillk We needed a short chapter today. 3mo
BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk we earned it! 3mo
currentlyreadinginCO She loves having almost been murdered!! 😂😂 3mo
dabbe Is it horrible of me that when I go to read a chapter, I quickly figure out how many pages it is, and then I (almost) jump for joy when it less than 10? 🤩 3mo
Cuilin I‘m so behind, still playing catch up. 3mo
mcctrish @dabbe we are twins 🤣 I start every reading by looking ahead at how many pages a-thinking “yes” #lessthan10 or “groan” #toomany I am seriously ‘a-doubting and a-feared‘ this book will ever end 3mo
BarkingMadRead @dabbe @mcctrish for real! 🙄 @Cuilin there are some shorter chapters ahead! You can do it!! 3mo
dabbe @mcctrish #greatminds 🤩😂😍 3mo
5feet.of.fury I told myself I either have to catch up this weekend or throw in the towel, this is where I am now. 3mo
BarkingMadRead @5feet.of.fury you can do it!! 3mo
5feet.of.fury @BarkingMadRead the comments seem like people are getting more into it, it‘s helping me rally. For a while we all seemed to be just suffering together lmao 3mo
BarkingMadRead @5feet.of.fury the last section has been so much easier to read! It‘s crazy 😜 3mo

Clare-Dragonfly Thanks for the visual! I thought this chapter was hilarious. They‘re all so pretentious 😂 13mo
Morr_Books @Clare-Dragonfly I agree! This chapter is hilarious! I was laughing right at the beginning when it was mentioned how much they disliked the doctor's name, Hoggins, but that Piggins would have been worse. 🤣 13mo
Ruthiella The chapter really does underscore the absurdity of class hierarchies! 😂 Certainly Mrs. Jamison enjoys being a big fish in a very small pond. And of course they ate up all the food not because they were hungry but because they were “too genteel” to point out how low class the spread was by abstaining. (edited) 13mo
Clare-Dragonfly I feel like the narrator is telling us all this in a sly whisper out of the corner of her mouth. And she occasionally bursts into giggles because she just can‘t help herself. That‘s why there are so many funerals—so she isn‘t constantly laughing. 13mo
TheAromaofBooks I was also confused about the sedan chair being in the house! I always assumed they picked people up outside like a cab?? But apparently not! 😂 13mo
Bookwormjillk i also do not approve of capital letters ff 13mo
dabbe @Ruthiella a big “snoring“ fish ... 🤣🤣🤣 13mo
dabbe I just spit out what I was drinking reading through all of this: y'all were funnier than this chapter, and that's saying something! Starting with you @BarkingMadRead ... #welldone 🙌🤩💚 13mo

TheBookHippie Rosalie what a we love to hate you character 😵‍💫 13mo
TheBookHippie @BarkingMadRead I miss color… still snowing and sticks here 😝 13mo
BarkingMadRead @TheBookHippie she really is! And ugh about the snow, you probably don‘t want to hear that we got none this year in SC 🤣 13mo
AllDebooks I've got a feeling we've not heard the last from Rosalie 😕 13mo
Ruthiella Bye Rosalie! Don‘t let the door hit ya on the way out! 😆 I am hoping Matilda is going to be less of a manipulative meanie! 13mo
Bookwormjillk And another murdered animal. I would never make it in Agnes Grey times between the lack of jobs for women and the random animal slaughter. 13mo
mcctrish @Ruthiella goodbye to bad rubbish in Rosalie‘s case and I think Matilda is only mean to creatures ( but not as bad as the first bunch of heathens) 13mo
mcctrish @AllDebooks it‘s rather ominous that Mr Weston thinks it‘s a bad match too 13mo
mcctrish Could Mrs Murray lack any more empathy?! 13mo
willaful @AllDebooks -- yup. She's going to do something horrible still. Or at least be intensely miserable. But I vote horrible. 🙄

@mcctrish He's definitely unnervingly blind to her faults. She's very good at hiding them. But I think he'll be enlightened. Hopefully not in the worst possible way.
Clare-Dragonfly If it weren‘t for the animal sadism I think Matilda would be my favorite character. I feel bad for her natural interests being squashed! 13mo
willaful @Clare-Dragonfly I think Matilda has potential? She's obviously not the type of person the author likes, but in real life, I think she could grow out of her bloodthirstiness. She strikes me as a late bloomer. (edited) 13mo
Morr_Books I love the bluebonnets scene. I just saw bluebonnets and a local park too. I'm happy to take a break from Rosalie even if is short lived. Also, what is the deal with characters in this book being cruel to animals? 13mo
dabbe @Morr_Books This disturbed me, too! In trying to find some kind of a guide for this book, I stumbled upon a passage that stated that a lot of this story is autobiographical--including the killing-of-the-birds scene. Does this mean that Anne = Agnes? I think it's too complicated for an answer yet. Thoughts? 🤔 13mo
BarkingMadRead @dabbe it‘s definitely possible, I‘m sure that people then didn‘t have the same feelings about animals that we do now. They didn‘t often keep pets, animals usually served a purpose and that‘s it 😢 13mo

Chapter 8: Chettam goes to Mr Cadwallader and whines about Dodo #quityourwhining #moveon #celiaiswaiting #youlookgoodtogether #shortchapter #hallelujah #pemberlittens

CoffeeNBooks I'm curious as to why Chettam thought it would have been ok for Dorothea to decide to marry him, but that she's too young to make the decision to marry Casaubon. ? I love Mr. Cadwallader's description of Mr. Brooke as "pulpy, he will run into any mould but he won't keep shape." ? 1y

SamAnne I'm loving Mrs. Cadwallader. She's my favorite character so far. 1y
inthegreensandblues @SamAnne She's very entertaining! I liked her joke about his blood under the microscope being found to be all semicolons and parentheses.🤭 1y
eeclayton @CoffeeNBooks I loved that description too! 😁 I'm not sure he meant that Dorothea should have chosen him, rather that it shouldn't have been her choice in the first place but Mr Brooke's, who is supposed to be wiser. 1y
BarkingMadRead @eeclayton 🙄🙄 wouldn‘t want a girl to think for herself! 1y
Bklover @SamAnne Me too! She‘s a character! 1y
Bklover @eeclayton oh, I hadn‘t thought of that! I‘ll bet you‘re right about him thinking that Mr Brooke should be selecting the spouses. (Since we are all weak, feeble minded and empty headed 🙄) (edited) 1y
Bookwormjillk When they said he had a trout stream does he actually have his own stream he fills with trout or was that a euphemism for something? 1y
TheAromaofBooks @Bookwormjillk - I believe he means a literal stream with trout for fishing. I believe they only like specific conditions, so not every stream would be ideal for them. Mr. Gardiner in P&P also was excited about Darcy's good trout streams, so apparently it was a not-unpopular hobby haha 1y
BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk @TheAromaofBooks I agree, literal trout stream. Which is funny, because they are amused by that and impressed by that, but women are dumb and need direction 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1y
Clare-Dragonfly 😂😂😂 1y
Bookwormjillk @BarkingMadRead @TheAromaofBooks thanks. Gonna find me a man with a trout stream. 1y
JamieArc I quite like Mr. Cadwallader! To Chettam: “[Women] don‘t admire you half so much as you admire yourselves.” 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 1y
CoffeeNBooks @eeclayton Thank you- that makes more sense! 1y
TheAromaofBooks @Bookwormjillk - In fairness, trout love clear, healthy water, so maybe judging a man by his trout stream isn't too bad of an idea 😂 1y

Bookwormjillk @BarkingMadRead I‘m impressed you waited this long! 1y
Clare-Dragonfly I DON‘T UNDERSTAND WHY SHE LIKES HIM SO MUCH. Also I‘m surprised the picnic has just now happened, I thought when he said he would take them to eat in the country he meant that day! Also also, if M. Paul made me get up at 5am, walk a mile or whatever, and then sit through a ding dang story, I would have eaten HIM for breakfast. 1y
Bklover Had company yesterday so didn‘t have time to comment. I do not like where this appears to be heading but I do hope wherever it is we get there fast! @Bookwormjillk I‘m counting too! 1y

Kalalalatja @Eggs @LeahBergen @TricksyTails @Tamra @CoverToCoverGirl @batsy I can‘t wait to have all my books back where they belong! 😄😍 @emilyhaldi @ferskner it is one of my favourite things about the apartment! Although the view is only of other buildings, so nothing too exciting 😄 @TrishB it did! I‘m tired and sore all over my body, but we made it 💪 @BarbaraBB I know. I might have been looking more forward to organising shelves than actually moving 😂 6y
