But......I thought she should have got out of Blair Water, maybe gone to New York for a year. It wouldn't have killed her.
The ending.....it really looked like she wouldn't end up with Teddy. And the way she just ASSUMES she means nothing to him.
Wasn't she jumping to conclusions a bit? How could she be so sure? And couldn't she have told her own best friend about who she was in love with? It would have made her easier to relate to for me. Cool down, girl.
The ending chapter, as others have said, was simply not complete enough. A description of her wedding.....that would have been nice. If not in this one then in some book Montgomery wrote after this about Emily. We deserved to know more. And I wanted more of Teddy around. We always heard what Emily thought of him, but there was so much of Dean and so little of Teddy. Why?
I like that Dean character. I think Montgomery does a good job of showing the vile parts of human nature when she writes of how Dean told Emily "The Seller of Dreams" was no good. I seriously got angry when I find out he had done that to her though. It made me wonder, how selfish of him....when he knew in part at least that that accident she suffered was his fault, how could he have had that happy summer with her furnishing the Dissapointed House?
The Dissapointed House is a wonderful metaphor by the way throughout the novel.
Write better and less SUDDEN! endings Emily is tons better than Anne. I like the ambition of the woman. Anne lost all that. There is more of a mutual respect thing between Teddy and her. They are both going after "Rainbow Gold." Wish there had been more talk of that between them during the book.Read more ›
This book does have a bittersweet flavor that is missing from the Anne series, but I appreciate the emotional truth that comes through. Montgomery's insight into her characters is clear but gentle, and rarely unforgiving. My only wish is that she would have trusted her characters to forward Emily's story to the end without resorting to plot devices. Overall, however, this is a worthwhile read that fans of Emily Climbs will not want to miss.
