|I agree with the others who have commented that life on the Gornetz Platz is boring.
|Gee, this topic does prompt rambling, doesn't it?|
|At least she tried to break the mould with books such as Redheads - even if it didn't succeed as well as we might have wished.|
|Hilda was the headmistress she could never be and Nell was the friend she never had|
Oh yes, a thousand times yes. Poor EBD. But lucky us.
|space travel and motorboats|
Where do these come from? Space travel is Ruey's father I suppose but I can't think of any motorboats.
|Didn't Kathie Ferrars also rescue two boys in a runaway motorboat too?|
|*off topic...does anyone else think Mary-Lou was partly responsible for the tobogganing accident, since she actually ran towards the toboggan? *
|My big fear is that EBD was marking Jack out for Head Girl.|
|I've just found this post, most of what I've wanted to say has been covered, but I feel the Tirol books were far better than the Swiss books. Did EBD visit or research Switzerland in much the same way she did the Tirol? There are plenty of references to Swiss history (usually via Biddy) and I do like this.|
|I don't think she was being irresponsible at all! It's not as though she ran right into the path of the sled, despite the VERY misleading cover of my Armada, which is so wrong it even has Margot still on board. She's going up the hill, yes, but on the side of the run, yelling directions. It took an unforseen snag, a half turn, Emerence being thrown "clear across the narrow margin of the run," and a tree at just the right angle of interception for harm to be done.
|It would fit in with the CS tradition of punishing random people in the vicinity of an incident though...|
|She does yell something that seems to keep them from converging once Margot starts screaming, but I've no idea what as it's in French. The only word I recognize is "non."|
