I really think Soames is rather horrible, pitiable but horrible. One thing I think one should really pay attention to is that we have not gotten inside Irene's head. She is always narrated from the point of view of somebody else, at this point mainly Soames or other Forsytes.
One thing that struck me reading through the first chapters this time was this from Chapter five:
That does not sound like a person who is just too cold and selfish to try to understand Soames.
Sari, firmly in the Irene camp :-)
