Excellent observatios, Rachael G....A "treasure hunt?"

Jeffrey 10/23/2009 02:51PM

Reeba 10/23/2009 08:47AM

Zeroes and threes and so on

Tom P2 10/23/2009 04:31PM

Elinor near Lady Middleton

Barb JA 10/23/2009 04:47PM

Is Miss Steele's first name Anne, or Nancy?

Cathy Allen 10/22/2009 09:30PM

Both. :-) Nancy can be a nickname for Anne. nfm

Tom P2 10/22/2009 10:43PM

Thanks, Tom; I thought that might be it, but...

Cathy Allen 10/23/2009 12:20PM

Thanks for clearing that up! I wondered too! nfm

Karen G 10/23/2009 09:56AM

What is it all about?

Rachel G 10/22/2009 02:00PM

Moral lessons

Barb JA 10/23/2009 08:37PM

Now that I've had time to ponder "what's it all about."

Jeffrey 10/23/2009 07:46AM

That's a very good thought! Thanks. ;-) nfm

Rachel G 10/23/2009 02:07PM

That's lovely and astute, Jeffrey, thank you!

Cathy Allen 10/23/2009 12:31PM

You asked & answered your questions beautifully! (nfm)

Jeffrey 10/22/2009 04:21PM

Some surprises in Chapters 49 and 50 (long -- sorry!)

Cathy Allen 10/21/2009 10:00PM


Nina RG 10/22/2009 08:39AM

Ch50: Never so much said with such brevity! :-D (nfm)

Jeffrey 10/23/2009 10:09AM

And more of warped Mrs. Ferrars

Barb JA 10/22/2009 11:27AM

Add this one to Mrs. Ferrars too!

Jeffrey 10/23/2009 07:19AM

This passage I like (not particularly a zinger, though) ;-)

Karen G 10/22/2009 01:08PM

My take

Nina RG 10/22/2009 03:29PM


Karen G 10/23/2009 09:55AM

Group reading as an historical tradition (?)

Jeffrey 10/21/2009 12:48PM

"...meant to be read aloud and shared ..."

Cathy Allen 10/21/2009 10:08PM

Also, the audiobooks of JA's novels are WONDERFUL!

Cathy Allen 10/22/2009 09:52PM


Robbin 10/21/2009 10:38AM

That is an excellent comparison

Ramya 10/21/2009 11:09AM

Elinor is also a female dependent on the good will

Graciela 10/21/2009 12:06PM

I am just trying to explain Lucy's active maliciousness

Ramya 10/21/2009 12:49PM

Brilliant at getting invitations like Mrs. Elton! (nfm)

Jeffrey 10/21/2009 03:08PM


Bridget D 10/21/2009 02:34PM

She's rich enough now to snub them

Barbara 10/21/2009 04:30PM

From fawning to repayment

Barb JA 10/23/2009 04:06PM

Do you recognise anything?.

Rachel G 10/21/2009 10:33AM

Lucy Steele, John Dashwood and Fanny Dashwood

Divya 10/21/2009 07:10PM


Barbara 10/21/2009 04:36PM

Earnest, unceasing attention to self-interest

Robbin 10/21/2009 10:07AM

Active malice.

Rachel G 10/21/2009 04:55PM

I agree

Robbin 10/22/2009 08:11PM

Why does JA "reward" Lucy in the end?

MarianneR 10/22/2009 03:38AM

I'm relaxed about her prosperity, because...

Tom P2 10/22/2009 07:08PM

But do you envy Lucy?

kathleen (elder) 10/22/2009 04:36AM

Lucy IS the punishment, more like... nfm

Elb 10/24/2009 09:59AM

Life is unfair.

Rachel G 10/22/2009 05:08AM

Fairness of life

Karen G 10/22/2009 09:05AM

Thanks for the quotation -

MarianneR 10/23/2009 05:23AM

the harmony in which they all lived together

Kathryn Ann 10/22/2009 09:40AM

I can just imagine this 'harmonious' domestic existence...

Elb 10/24/2009 09:57AM

Summarizing my first "group read" experience...

Jeffrey 10/21/2009 08:16AM

Hear, hear!

Elizabeth K 10/22/2009 09:11AM

Getting on a roll

Clellie 10/21/2009 04:42PM

Of course one could always...

Reeba 10/22/2009 02:51PM

Best thing about group reads

Karen G 10/22/2009 12:45PM

I've been on that roll and had to apply the brakes...

Jeffrey 10/22/2009 08:17AM

I've emailed you a (LONG!) response (nfm)

Cathy Allen 10/21/2009 10:46PM

Different ways to experience a novel.

Rachel G 10/21/2009 05:53PM

I so agree

BarbaraB 10/21/2009 09:00AM

This was my first time too

Outi 10/21/2009 09:36AM

My sentiments

Kathryn Ann 10/21/2009 03:40PM

Lucy gets her reward

Barb JA 10/19/2009 07:52AM

J.A. at her subtle underwhelming finest here! (nfm)

Jeffrey 10/21/2009 07:51AM

& Robert gets to Dawlish,

nan duval 10/19/2009 11:19AM

Excellent notion! :-) nfm

Barb JA 10/20/2009 06:43AM

LOL, nan!

Cathy Allen 10/19/2009 11:43AM

Lucy's letter

LouAnn 10/19/2009 10:55AM

Her letters

Nina RG 10/19/2009 11:10AM

Also another

Helen B 10/20/2009 08:54AM

I agree. *nfm*

MarianneR 10/21/2009 02:58AM

"Keep the ring" shows that Lucy is magnanimous-LOL (nfm

Cathy Allen 10/19/2009 11:41AM

Ah! Of course. Thanks, Cathy Allen! (nfm)

Nina RG 10/20/2009 07:47AM

Did Sophia write the Letter?

Robbin 10/19/2009 12:21AM

Do we have any...

Reeba 10/21/2009 01:55PM


Robbin 10/23/2009 11:40AM

I had not noticed ....

Rachel G 10/23/2009 02:13PM

He reminded Elinor of it several paragraphs earlier, though

Tom P2 10/23/2009 04:04PM

Thanks for pointing that out smiling bouncing smiley) nfm

Robbin 10/23/2009 06:18PM

So he did!

Rachel G 10/23/2009 04:46PM

Older woman?

Graciela 10/21/2009 02:31PM

Older than Marianne and Eliza?

Barbara 10/21/2009 04:09PM

It felt like it might be a sham...

Clellie M. 10/20/2009 09:55PM

nothing is ever his fault

Karen G 10/22/2009 12:59PM

Please just use Clellie when you post...

Candace 10/21/2009 12:04AM

The infamous letter? A join effort, I think,

Rachel G 10/19/2009 07:33PM

W needed Sophia more than she needed him

Barb JA 10/20/2009 06:33AM

one point I'm sure is Sophia's...

Heather Leigh 10/19/2009 03:04PM

Interesting question!

Louise H 10/19/2009 10:42AM

I think both had a hand in it

LouAnn 10/19/2009 10:49AM

But that actually necessitates another assumption...

Melissa K 10/20/2009 12:32PM

the hair and the letters

LouAnn 10/20/2009 01:58PM

He had to return them, I think.

Melissa K. 10/20/2009 06:23PM

He could have lied, though

LouAnn 10/21/2009 06:53AM

I wonder if Willoughby would have answered

kathleen (elder) 10/21/2009 11:33AM

Would it not have broke your heart...

Clellie M. 10/20/2009 10:06PM

Clellie, please remember to post as "Clellie"

Laurel 10/21/2009 06:46AM


Robbin 10/18/2009 11:39PM

note use of passive voice

LouAnn 10/20/2009 02:39PM

Good point! nfm

Karen G 10/22/2009 12:48PM

I agree.

nan duval 10/20/2009 05:24PM

I think WORTHLESS is an excellent description of W; thanks Robbin

Cathy Allen 10/19/2009 10:05AM

Eliza's situation and character

Bridget D 10/19/2009 06:06AM
