in consequence of the missive, Marianne's redeeming feature, penned by Tracy W
That Marianne is a sweet girl. No one dislikes her that I can see; it's not like Fanny Price or Emma Woodhouse where you have hot or cold feelings with little in between. It's that she's exasperating with her absolute views of the world and deep belief that she knows absolutely everything there is to know about...well...everything.
In other words, she's a typical teenager. There's no reasoning with her. I don't think that she's *selfish*, though, which is a trait that many teenagers sink into. She does care for the wellfare of her family, and she obviously really loves them. Unfortunately, some of her behavior that was laughable at the beginning of the book turns downright nasty once Willoughby entered the picture. Rather than promoting her sensible feelings, he helped her play against her prejudices and narrowmindedness, and at this point, I'm happy he's gone at the moment.
