Next chapters soon to come, loved them so far....
Friday, September 4, 2009
I enjoyed these three chapters immensely. I thought it was very good of Mr.Weston to try to be agreeable to Mrs. Elton. (well he is very agreeable all of the time which i like him for it) And i am so happy that he is always happy at his sons coming, i just really like him. I wish i knew someone like him. I do. And It was happy news that Frank is coming back, i didn't know if he was going to come back in the book or not. But i was surprised that he didn't spend more time with Emma. But all the while she is observing him and trying to think of a way to let him down easier. Though she is comforted to observe that he is less "in love with her." And i really liked the Ball at the crown Chapter immensely. I really enjoyed it! With Mr. and Mrs. Westons Agreeable ways, Emma's charming self, Frank's running about, Miss. Bates Talking on (though i do like babbling), Jane's soft self, Mrs. Elton's pushy self, Harriet's sweet nature, and Mr. Knightley's aim not to dance. I really liked the part when Mr.Knightley asks Harriet to dance. It was just so sweet!!!! I remember in one of my favorite movies Clueless how they made that scene between Mr. Knigtley (Josh) and Harriet (Tai), it just made me think of that. I also was glad Mr. Knightley decided to dance more than once, because i was thinking about going into the book and making him dance another time with someone. Well i liked these chapter again (well of course i did) and can't wait to read more.

I really loved these chapters, and i liked how they went even though there was not ball.
It was sad that Churchill left and there was no ball, but i am sure other characters will fill in the gap. I loved the chapter on Emma thinking herself in love and talking about how much Mr.Churclill was and how she would let him down nicely and they all will be friends. And i really enjoyed the chapter of Mrs. Elton's visit. It was very fair of Emma to give her a second chance, but it was very funny when it didn't go very well. I know many of a Mrs. Elton, and she is very real in my mind. Her nature and mouth affords her no pleasures or rewards. Well i can't wait to read more,
I thought these chapters good, but a little sad. I was very sad to see Mr. Churchill leave. I think if he was given more time...... they would have become more attached, and who knows if Emma would have given way to marriage. Who knows.... I did like the chapters on Mrs. Elton. I thought her exceedingly annoying, and thought it hilarious how incensed Emma was becoming toward her. Hilarity in itself indeed. I am sorry to know that she offers little to the society. It would have been nice to have another female character of good humor, added to the story. I dearly hope that Mr. Churchill returns soon, and I can't wait to read more.....

I really liked these chapters. For a few chapters we were seeing more of Mr. Churchill than Mr. Knightley but i am glad that he is coming more into the book again. Well i quiet liked the chapter when every one (like Emma, Harriet, Mr. Churchill, Mrs. Weston, And the Bates) were in the same house. And all the conversation was so entertaining i found it to be. And i thought it was very very funny when Mr. Knightley was stopped by Miss. Bates. Their short conversation made me laugh, how everybody heard them! And i also liked how Mr. Churchill came to ask what Emma thought of the ball/dance arrangements. And how they had to convince Mr. Woodhouse into thinking the taking of the Crown a good idea. Can't wait to read more

I quite liked these chapters, they did well together. The part where Frank goes to get his hair cut was interesting, Jane must have had fun writing that. And the part where Emma is very slighted for not receiving an invitation. I can totally understand, you want the power to decide if you are to go or not. Even if you don't want to go you still want to at least say no. But i really liked the ball chapters. The last chapter (26) was very long but i enjoyed it very much. The conversation between Frank and Emma and Emma and "Miss. Taylor". I find Mr. Frank Churchill likes to talk gossip, but i like him plenty.
And the subject between Mr. Knightley and Jane was absolute and the reasons for believing them together funny.

In some parts these chapters were funny. Like for example i loved the visit to the Bates. It was very funny i thought. Emma not wanting to go other than being a friendly visitor and neighbor and Miss. Bate all joy and kindness with much to talk about and a mother who has to hear things repeated over two times to get their meaning. I know Emma must not dislike Miss. Jane as a person, but i think she dislikes the going on about her and all the fuss over one woman. That i think put a strain on her getting closer to her. Well i can't wait to read more...

Yes i agree with Lain i can't wait to read more. In the book i thought it was very funny of Elenor to buy Thomas a gift. Usually that is how it happens you find something you want to get for someone and then after you feel uncomfortable giving it to him or something. I also thought it was cute when Nana appeared in a barrow. She is amazingly inscribed in my head, i can just see her. Wild white hair (and pink in the light of the fire) and a fresh attitude, but old appearance. I liked the story that she told. I feel though that i have heard of it before. Hummm... I think i have.
I greatly liked these chapters. I thought it very sweet of Elenor to buy Thomas a book, and for Thomas in return to give her a delicately carved snail shell. I thought the story that they told very spooky, though, I know it could never happen... I greatly like Nana, and am saddened that the last chapter may be the last we hear of her. I am beginning to like Thomas more, because I believe he is becoming wiser, and is liking Elenore more, even though he still refers to her as the "Brat". All in all I thought these chapters quite charming, and can't wait to read more.

I liked the first few chapters and thought that they told a lot about the charters. I liked how they focused on Elenor, but wished we could have learned more about Thomas. I guess that will come with time. I am having a little difficulty visulising Elenor, I don't know what to think of her yet. In time I will of corse. But I did enjoy these chapters as Bostan said, they are not to long, but not to short. Can't wait to read more!!!!!

I was happy with these chapters. They may be only three chapters but it is a lot of information and a lot of pages. I really liked the little adventures with Marian in the woods. They were nice and sweet. She is so much different than most female roles. She is independent but also feminine, and she is lovable. I do hope she and Robin end together, but i do feel bad for Will Scarlett. Poor guy if it happens like that. The trip to London was a good few pages and the trip back finished it all off. I loved how Robin fooled the Tinker, but i was surprised when he was beaten again! I know it happens a lot and i should give up, but i had hope that Robin would win. One thing is that i am not so sure of the Tinker he seems suspicious, but i guess we will have to wait and find out. ???????
I liked it exceedingly well to see Maiden Marian in Sherwood with Robin Hood. I do think she is in love with Robin, but does not like the way that he looks at her. I Liked the part where they captured the Bishop AGAIN! I thought it quite funny. I thought it exceedingly amusing that the Sheriff was fooled again by the same trick. It really showed how greedy he was. Marian is so sweet. I like her alot. I think that Robin Hood is finally falling for her, maybe not. It is hard to tell with him. =) I thought it good that if Marian could not live with Robin Hood, that she live with the Queen, for I like her alot also. I thought all of the chapters amazingly good, and can't wait to read more, AGAIN!

I really liked these chapters. My favorite of them all was when Little John became a spy in the castle and how that went. He did a wonderful job in pretending to be not the brightest and the not the toughest. And it was funny to see how Guy and the sheriff took the new and truth that their inside guy was really Little John. That was very amusing. And going back i really thought that Will was in serious trouble and was maybe going to die because i have never really heard of him in very many accounts and i thought this was his end. But i am so happy to find that it ended well!
I can't wait to read tomorrows chapters!
I liked these chapters, though not as much as the last. I thought it exceedingly funny that they stole a priest to sing mass for them, and then deprived him of food. It made me laugh. I also thought it funny and just like Will to get lost in the caves. He just did not want to listen to Robin Hood, so he got himself in trouble. I thought Little John clever to disguise himself and pretend not to know how to fight. I just hope that they save poor Marian. I can't wait to see what they attempt. Can't wait to read more!

I was SO worried when she got to go up on the kite. Every gust of wind really made me worried but i didn't expect her to go a sail'in. I now she will survive but i don't know how, i can't wait to find out! I am glad she is safe though and i like from the sound of it her kip and the water fall. I totally forgot that back then not many people knew how to swim. I just expected them to because they were on a ship. But i am glad she is learning how. And i thought the part where she is flyin over the water was funny, she was preparing herself to die, but when she found that she might not need to she named the kite the "hope" and sailed her way to the land. And my second favorite part was when she got really excited for the clam shell, that was funny. I would never have thought to use it for that. Maybe a bowl but that idea was smart. I really liked these chapters!
And i hope when and if she gets rescued by her mates i hope Davy won't have told every one that Jack was a girl.
I really enjoyed these chapters, but they made me worry. I thought it was hilarious when Davy found them. I thought that Jamie would have a completely different reaction to what he did. When Jacky went up in the kite I admit I was not all that worried. Then when the tree got pulled out of the ground I was shocked. I thought if anything went wrong, the rope would brake, defiantly not the tree being pulled out of the ground. I new she had to get out of the predicament, because there is a sequel, but I had no idea how she was going to do it. I was very relieved that she found a good landing place and that she was able to land. She seemed to handle the whole castaway thing pretty well. I am also glad that she was able to contact the others on the other island. I can't wait to read the next chapters.
