In response to Evidence?, written by Cassia on November 06, 1997 at 14:19:09
] What evidence do we have that Fergus, with all of his faults is also a womanizer? while I will admit his feelings for Maud are more possessive than they should be, I don't see how we can accuse him so.
Well I no longer have the book but off the top of my head, one tell tale sign was the fact that he seemed to have made no attempt to get together with Maude again until someone he knows and thinks little of comes into her life. Suddenly he is all interest. You call it possessivness. I don't think so. I see it as his self centeredness being unable to except that Maude could be involved with a guy like Roland. His mind thinking along these lines...' What can she be thinking going around with that twerp, when she's already had a great guy like me?' That is a classic sign of a womanizer. Doesn't really want the girl but can't except being replaced by someone he sees as not as good as himself and of course there is no one as good as himself.
Maybe someone who owns the book can site other evidence because I know it's in there. He gave me the distinct impression of a womanizing jerk, and I wished I hadn't returned the book to the library now.
