How would you like for your name to be Grizzel? Ya–me neither. Or your surname Sheepshanks? Ha!!
At this halfway point, I’ll leave you with a few of my random thoughts, a few random questions, and then please feel free to link up your midway post if you have one (no obligation…) and please feel free to discuss in the comments. If you are past Chapter 34, please try to avoid spoilers beyond that point.
Few Random Thoughts
–I’m loving the narrator and his quirky little sidenotes and tidbits.the social commentary on public and private life.
–Becky is a piece of work. Though I have to say it’s tough for me to get Reese Witherspoon out of my head!
–George Osborne is a jerk and poor Dobbin…oh poor Dobbin.
–Why are there so many Crawleys!!
–It’s hard not to picture old spinster Miss Crawley as Violet Grantham from Downton Abbey, huh?
Few Random Questions
–How does Vanity Fair compare to your preconceived notions of the book?
–Who is your favorite character? Your favorite Crawley? (kidding). Least Favorite?
–Is Becky terribly conniving or terrifically clever?
–At this halfway point do you see any redeemable characters in the mix?
