Bklover It‘s been fun seeing your posts from the movie. I‘m watching the movie as I read the book (hadn‘t seen it read either). I don‘t go beyond where I‘ve read to but it‘s made it more fun! 6d
BarkingMadRun @Bklover that‘s awesome. This version is a little different than the book, but I still love it! 6d
suvata Yeah, that was a great line. 6d

BarkingMadRun @Karkar I get that, some of them weren‘t my faves but I had a few faves 1w
bthegood @Karkar agreed - this one was a so-so for me - some were okay, LTs Theory of Pets stood out for me - Stephen King read this to a live audience and his introduction and narration were fun - (edited) 7d

ErinSueMreads Oh man I can't wait to see what you think. It's got a zillion of those little stephen king Easter egg tidbits, and while they can be a little bit cheesy while you are reading them he brings them all together so well. And there are characters from the bigger universe that come in! 1w
BarkingMadRun @ErinSueMreads I‘m so excited! I love when he ties things together! 1w

Chapter 12: Marianne and Willoughby are a little too close and Margaret can‘t keep her little mouth shut with Mrs Jennings….. #pemberlittens #buddyread

peanutnine I love how the first few chapters barely mention Margaret at all and now all of a sudden she is there, stirring up trouble 😅 2w
BarkingMadRun @peanutnine right? Super sass from out of nowhere 🤣 2w
Linsy She never can! So stressful 2w
suvata Margaret is a typical 11 year old. She doesn‘t really understand what‘s truly going on but she‘s dying to tell everyone about what she thinks. Dangerous creatures those young girls. I know because I used to be one and really annoyed my older sister. 😝 2w

Chapter 11, Marianne loves Willoughby and Brandon loves Marianne. And around we go. #pemberlittens #buddyread

StayCurious Poor Colonel Brandon. I‘m finding Marianne to be a bit mean and annoying and can‘t help but wonder what Brandon sees in her. Is it mostly because she reminds him of his unrequited love? Or because she‘s really pretty? 2w
BarkingMadRun @StayCurious it must be a combo of the two, but it‘s so sad on his part because she‘s not really a wonderful human right now! 2w
suvata Marianne? Sweetness of temper? 2w

Ruthiella It‘s been way too long since I saw the film or read the book. I quite like Mrs. Jennings - especially in comparison to her reserved (and dull) daughter. She‘s quite the character! 2w

StayCurious I also enjoy the 2008 version and will probably watch both adaptations 2w

Ruthiella Okay, 25 years later, Alan Rickman circa 1995 is looking a lot younger to me. Still not cool with the 20 year age gap, but maybe not as icked out as before. 😆 3w

Chili Their little cottage has 4 bedrooms and two sitting rooms. 🤦🏻‍♀️ My apartment is definitely a closet. Mrs. Dashwood needs a reality check about her finances. 3w
BarkingMadRun @Chili our first condo, and our first house, we‘re both wayyyyyyyy smaller than this. She needs to get a grip! 3w
IndoorDame Yeah, that place is definitely big enough for her family! Pretty sure she‘d think my apartment WAS a closet. 3w
StayCurious A lot of the elite or high class didn‘t know how to handle their finances. That‘s why so many aristocrats were poor and needed to marry wealthy Americans or tradespeople. It‘s a good thing Eleanor is sensible! 3w
Ruthiella @StayCurious Exactly! Elinor is her financial planner, keeping her in check. 😆 3w
Bklover I have to keep reminding myself when this was otherwise I get annoyed at them for their privilege. The biggest house I ever owned was smaller than their “cottage”. 3w
suvata I agree. It‘s amazing what privileged people consider to be just barely acceptable living quarters. I guess it all depends what you are used to. 3w
suvata I don‘t know if I would like to have lived during that time. It‘s kind of nice how everyone visits each other all the time but I‘m kind of homebody and not real keen on unexpected company. Maybe people were just more friendly back then. 3w
megnews @suvata I‘m the same way. All this visiting is tiring me out just reading about it! 2w

Chili John is a wimp, of course Fanny will talk him out of parting with any money. 3w
suvata @Chili I couldn‘t agree more. John‘s wimpishness (I don‘t think that‘s a real word) is so infuriating. Fanny is the epitome of greed. I hope he has the cohones to stand up to her at some point. 3w

megnews Fanny: Edward, I‘m sure you don‘t want to make her your wife, just court for awhile. On second thought, I‘m sure you never really dreamed of courting her after that first day together. I‘m quite sure you never want to lay eyes on her again. (edited) 3w
megnews Marianne: no great loss! He‘s not your clone so you can‘t possibly want to be with him. I‘m quite sure I‘ll never meet my clone so I will be single forever. 3w
