Yes, it is his (and Jane Austen's!) decision, it's just an inexplicible one to me, considering how hard she works at being offensive!
I've never been a real Marianne fan, but I've also never really, actively disliked her, as I'm finding myself doing this read. And I'm finding that whole thing interesting. Is it my age and the fact that I have to deal with whiny teens in daily life and so have not the patience to do so in fictional life as well? I don't know. But I love the fact that JA has this effect on me. That I can reread her and get a whole different feel and reaction to the story depending on my stage in life or circumsances. You gotta love that! ;-)
] Indeed it is weird, I actually don't know anyone else with my name, so it's even stranger. And there's a first time for everything Cheryl! ;-) LOL! I feel like I'm talking to myself now... :)
Well, and what's even weirder for me, is that my last name begins with an "S" and I use the name "CherylS" at another website I frequent because there was already a "Cheryl" when I arrived there, so I'm almost always taken aback when I see your name here at Pemberley - LOL!
