You knew this was coming. You KNEW IT! But it's true. I LOVE a literary readalong. I've found that for those pesky classics that scare me or look intimidating, it's a great idea to read with friends. Also, tackling a long chunky monster like The Woman in White, seems much more manageable when taken in installments.
I reached the conclusion of Epoch Two last night, and I was all like...WTF Woman in White? WTFFFFF???? Because surprises! Melodramatic Victorian ones!
So what am I LOVING in Epoch Two?
- The developments in Fosco's character. He's a vile villain...one of the best. He's dapper, well-mannered, humorous, and just an all-around entertaining guy. And a beastly snake in the grass. Snake, I tell you!
- I love the surprises, truly. The turns in Laura's health that lead to THAT THING! With the faking of the THING!
- I also love Marian's wiliness in this section. She's a rockstar hero for sneaking out on the balcony ledge thing.
What's still problematic?
