The conversation from the comic strip happened a few days ago. I'm getting the play-by-play of what's happening to dear Jane. I've always loved this book and to watch Wasabi Girl discover it has been wonderful. I'm not sure how she's managed to stay unaware of the plot for so long. I've watched various versions of the movie but I guess she didn't watch them with me.
She is totally in love with Mr. Rochester and told me proudly that she knew he was the fortune teller all along. We agreed that we dislike Blanche Ingram. I am savoring every chapter she tells me about.
Drama Girl, on the other hand, seldom reads books I suggest to her. She has little patience right now for the classics. She did, however, curl up with The Hobbit one rainy day and concedes that it was a very good read. I hold out hope that we'll have some overlapping taste in books.
In the meantime I can hardly wait to gently open more doors for Wasabi Girl. When she recovers from Mr. Rochester she'll be ready to meet Heathcliff. *sigh*
