Preceding this was Bingley's, Caroline's and Darcy's brief interchange about books and libraries, with Caroline's obsequious comments about Pemberley. While I can imagine that Elizabeth, studier of human nature that she is, would find this conversation amusing, I'm a bit surprised that she actually puts down her book and displays her interest by joining the others at the table. Does that seem a bit out of character to anyone else?
I do love the use of the word "game" at the end of the sentence, because that is exactly what Caroline is about. And Darcy may well be aware of this, as he later says to Caroline, "...there is meanness in all the arts which ladies sometimes condescend to employ for captivation." He certainly has her pegged! :-)
