in consequence of the missive, Some surprises in Chapters 49 and 50 (long -- sorry!), penned by Cathy Allen
This was also my first reading of S&S (although I have seen a few adaptations - I know, I know: Wrong way round:D ) and this once again proved to me how brilliant Jane Austen is. Even though I knew the basic story, I was still surprised many times over. And of course, the "clever JA zingers" are priceless!
In Ch 50 I loved these ones:
"and here it plainly appeared, that though Edward was now her only son, he was by no means her eldest;"
"and setting aside the jealousies and ill-will continually subsisting between Fanny and Lucy, in which their husbands of course took a part, as well as the frequent domestic disagreements between Robert and Lucy themselves, nothing could exceed the harmony in which they all lived together."
