|Thinking about Marianne...

While reading, I was thinking about how much I dislike Marianne: she's childish, self-centered, dramatic, emotional, wilful, etc. I've disliked her since I saw the movie adaptations of S&S (before I read the novel). And then it occurred to me (I blush to disclose!) that I was probably like her at that age. It's been decades since I was that age, so I'm not sure (trying to make myself look a little better, here :-) ). And I, too, would have "fallen for" Willoughby (pun intended) in a heartbeat!
Anyone else care to admit to being a Marianne in her youth?
