Chaos breaks out. Not the giant spiders are attacking, we'll all be spun cocktails in five seconds, run, Mr. Frodo, run sort of chaos. (Thankfully.) Just the social discomfort of the highest degree that seems trifling when read about, but very, very, very bad when actually experienced first hand.

Onward, ho! )

Chapter IV
The League of the Scarlet Pimpernel

Everybody's sitting happily at the well-laid table in the coffee room of the Fisherman's Rest—everyone, that is, except one of the following possible people.

a. Severus Snape
b. Eeyore
c. the Lone Ranger
d. those domino-playing guys who are NOT French

And the answer is . . . )

Chapter III
The Refugees

First off, the reader is expected to wade through the usual filler about politics, which said filler I skip through without even thinking.

What is with filler, anyway? Why put it there if nobody reads it? )

Chapter II:
Dover: “The Fisherman's Rest”

Just to let you know, not much happens in this chapter. Not much that's of interest to me, anyway. I'm reading this strictly for the Pimpernel, and the Pimpernel doesn't appear here. It's what I'd call a “filler” chapter—you're impatient to get it over with as you read, and you only see its real purpose in the book after you've read it through. And then you think you might have been able to do it better.

We're going to an inn, but it's not the Prancing Pony )

This little masterpiece of a book is arguably one of my favorites of all time. Much as I love it, though, I do have to admit, Orczy's writing style can be just a wee bit much for me. Thus, most of this commentary will focus on praise for my favorite characters, and jokes aimed at Orczy whenever she gets too excited or sentimental about stuff. You have been duly cautioned. :)

Onward ho! )

A while back (one year ago? two? three?), I wrote a chapter-by-chapter commentary of The Scarlet Pimpernel for fun, when I was having writing muse problems and I found analyzing one of my favorite books a refreshing way to boost my creativity. I'm thinking of posting it here. What say you?
