Aimeesue The Bertha thing is so creepy. NO ONE likes the name Bertha as a lovely and mellifluous name. Liar. (edited) 6d
BarkingMadRead @Aimeesue it is 💯 messed up. So gross and super passive aggressive 6d
Aimeesue @BarkingMadRead so controlling. Red flag! Red flag! 🚩 Sigh. Too late. 6d
Bookwormjillk I keep confusing Rochester with Max DeWinter. We keep reading about these messed up men who believe themselves to be victims. 6d
Librarybelle I was so confused when the narration kept changing. Admittedly, this one is a bit of a struggle for me…I feel like I‘ve not found a good rhythm yet with the writing, and we‘re near the end! 6d
mcctrish @Librarybelle I keep wondering if I‘m the crazy one because WTF is happening 6d
5feet.of.fury The Bertha thing, separating her from Christophine… husband is a creep. Wish the zombi got him 6d
mcctrish @Aimeesue Bertha is brutal 6d
5feet.of.fury @Librarybelle yeah, I do not get this one. I read through 2 pages & had no idea whose POV or what had happened. 6d
Librarybelle Glad I‘m not the only one, @mcctrish @5feet.of.fury 6d
IndoorDame @Bookwormjillk This actually does remind me a bit of Rebecca in the sense that all of the characters are unreliable, but there‘s still something about all of them that draws you into their worlds when they‘re the ones talking, and the whole place is intoxicating and bordering on fantastical. 6d
willaful I continue to have no memory at all of having read this.

I'm furious and disgusted with Rochester. He's totally yellow-wallpapering Antoinette.
6d
Clare-Dragonfly I still don‘t get why Richard wanted Antoinette to marry Rochester so badly. She had plenty of money, she could have lived independently! @IndoorDame Yes, I was also reminded of Rebecca, and you‘ve articulated why very well! 5d
BarkingMadRead @Clare-Dragonfly I wonder if he just didn‘t want to feel responsible for her anymore? She would have been fine by herself, I don‘t know why he felt the need to marry her off 5d
julieclair I am so disappointed in Rochester. He used to be one of my book boyfriends, but now he‘s off the list! 5d
TheBookHippie Sorry I bailed. Too much life going on to read this darkness. 😵‍💫 4d
BarkingMadRead @TheBookHippie you do you! No judgement here! 4d

Librarybelle Quite a lot to digest in Part 1! 2w
BarkingMadRead @Librarybelle I‘m thinking part two might need multiple posts 🤣 that was a lot (edited) 2w
Librarybelle 😂 2w
Bookwormjillk I read this not knowing what was a dream and what was real. I‘ve bailed on this book in the past, but I am determined to finish with the #HashtagBrigade 2w
5feet.of.fury Poor Coco. I‘m glad Aunt Cora is coming back. I‘m so confused with the Mason/Cosway family tree. 2w
5feet.of.fury @BarkingMadRead @Librarybelle it was a lot! @Bookwormjillk I know that I read this in high school, and I remember that whole 1st part, and being confused about the races/race relations & our teacher thinking we were all very stupid. Which if she‘s the teacher, teaching us & we all did not understand I think that‘s a her problem lol 2w
BarkingMadRead @5feet.of.fury definitely a her problem! 2w
BarkingMadRead @5feet.of.fury Mason is Antoinette‘s stepdad, but I didn‘t like her saying nee Cosway, because I always thought that was for marriage 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2w
Clare-Dragonfly I found this quick to read but difficult to follow. If the present-tense portion near the end was a dream, were the other present-tense portions dreams? But I don‘t remember what they were anymore. I guess I‘m following the broad strokes of Antoinette‘s life, though. 2w
dabbe Rhys writes as if she expects us to know and understand all about British and French colonialism in the Caribbean and the so-called pecking order determined by how much black blood was in you. I admit to having read some study guides for this one, and it helped tremendously. I think the strange man at the end of Part 1 (that Mason alludes to) is Rochester. #oytothevey! 😳 (edited) 2w
willaful @BarkingMadRead Maybe it's one of those usages that changed? Like in Austen and other books of the time, “stepmother“ and “mother-in-law“ often seem to be switched, IIRC.

@dabbe Yes, it's frustrating! I'm confused too -- and have NO memory of having read this before, though I know I did. Too young no doubt.
2w
mcctrish I forgot what day we were meeting 🤦🏻‍♀️ this first part felt ripe with ominous vibes and while I get the white negro and black Englishman taunts I hadn‘t realized how angry they were ( although Tia not coming back with the stolen dress should have clued me in) poor Patrick ( and horse and parrot) what in earth will part 2 bring 😳 this is a wild fast ride. The mom was a piece of work but her yelling “no “ when Antoinette went to visit 💔 2w
mcctrish I am curious what was the matter with Patrick ( some kind of palsy ?) and Antoinette was ill for 6 weeks not from being hit in the head from a stone ( thx Tia) but because her mother tried to kill her?! 2w
BarkingMadRead @mcctrish yeah that whole part of her being sick kind of went over my head. Really crazy 2w
Bookwormjillk @5feet.of.fury a her problem for sure! 2w
rubyslippersreads Not only is Part One full of drama and tragedy, I feel like what happens in Jane Eyre is hanging over everything. #PoorCoco #foreshadowing #impendingdoom (edited) 2w
julieclair What a sad early life. Soooo much going on in these chapters. The noise in the bamboo had me wanting to scream “get out of the house”! And the mom‘s rejection of her… just heartbreaking. 2w

Librarybelle Do we have to learn about these kids because Aloysha is involved? Is this Dostoevsky‘s way of circling back to his story? Yeah…this kid is not trustworthy. 2mo
Graciouswarriorprincess He is definitely not trustworthy. 2mo
mcctrish This is pointless “milk calf mush” 2mo
Bookwormjillk Definitely do not trust him. 2mo
