Saturday again and that can only mean one thing, Lizzie Bennet time, I really hope we meet one of the other male characters this week I know that the whole story really centres n the female characters but I am reaching a point where I want to be able to put faces to the names, the longer I wait the more I think of the TV/Film versions and am more likely to be disappointed. So see you at the other side and fingers crossed for at least one new character….
It is interesting to see how Charlotte’s character has been transformed, in the novel her character was far more pragmatic accepting Collin’s from a purely practical stand point and because of lack of options, in this she is much more of a go getting career woman and one can imagine that had Austen’s Charlotte had the option of earning an independent living Mr Collins would have remained single. Her reasons for accepting the job are still the same but she does seem to have a lot more of a choice than she would have previously.
The argument between the two over Charlotte leaving strike me as really realistic you know they will make up eventually because that’s what friends do but they are also the people who can hurt you most because they know you inside and out all your failings as well as your successes, they are also the only people who ever are willing to tell you the truth even when it hurts.
Still no sign of meeting new character although Wickham is back in time so hopefully we will see him soon, the issues between Darcy and Wickham are as yet unknown but the tension has been recreated without meeting either which demonstrates the quality of the vlogs. Bing’s absence came as a surprise to me as I still find myself trying to impose the novel timeline onto this but we shall see how things develop next week.
