I liked these chapters and it is bringing the characters into a new portion of their lives. The hill adventure is a good bit of conversation, and more of their background and characteristics are beginning to shine through. Miss. Bartlett even knows that her cousin doesn't really love her but still tries to gain her pity. Sham on her.
I really liked it, and thought that as you already said, the characters were more established and we now know what each character tends to more. I think it was hilarious about their driver and his "sister". All I could remember is the seen in the movie which was hilarious. A lot of the movie seemed really random when I saw it, it made it in fact quite a funny movie, which now is even funnier, because the book is not all that funny, but yet the movie, which stays quite close to the movie line, is. Well I enjoyed it, and am glad you liked it to. I am again horribly sorry for being so late and holding you up in your reading. This next month I will have endless amounts of time to do things like read, so I promise not to miss one day next month.
p.s. I really liked the cover of my book, and I wanted to show it to you, so here it is!
