I'd like to say that Elinor reminds me of myself, but then I just laugh and laugh.....

I was more like Elinor though I had inward romantic daydreams. What does everyone think about Elinor and Lucy's relationships. Does it seem possible for Elinor to hide her true feelings from Lucy? What do you think of Lucy?

We have to remember that Marianne is a young teenager and she certainly acts like a spoiled one. Did you feel any sympathy for her when she received Willoughby's letter? It was a rude letter. Marianne had been rude to most people around her, so do you feel sorry for her or do you think she got what she deserved?

I'm now part way through Chapter 34.

I did feel sorry for her & I believe Willoughby's attentions were far from honourable towards her. Obviously his need to secure Miss Grey & her estate was top priority rather than seducing Marianne. He is despicable as Marianne is a child.

Sensibility in Marianne's case seems to mean emotional to the point of hysteria.

This line interested me;

"and at what warehouse Miss Grey's clothes might be seen."


This seems to indicate it was traditional for the wealthy to display their wedding clothes but I can't find any information online.
