Obviously, I adore Guernsey. After all, I've written an initial review, discussion questions, and another review. Seems I wouldn't have any more to say...and yet, somehow, I do. I wanted to answer one of my own questions - Who is your favorite character, and why?
Juliet is my favorite because she's so spunky and witty.
Dawsey is my favorite because he's so quiet, thoughtful, and shy.
Amelia is my favorite because she's such a mother-hen.
Eben is my favorite because he exudes a quiet strength (He is the one character I didn't get to know as well as I would've liked, though.)
Isola is my favorite because she's just so wacky.
If I hadn't returned the book to the library (sniff, sniff), I would give you the quote in Juliet's letter to Sidney that sums up my feelings. I'll just have to paraphrase..."I have fallen in love with two men, Eben & Dawsey. I want Amelia to adopt me, and I want to adopt Isola."
Then there is Elizabeth, who is no longer physically in Guernsey but who's in everyone's heart (even Juliet's). Elizabeth's presence reminded me of our last Bookclub read, Rebecca.
All in all, I was just as sad to leave Guernsey this time as I was the first. This book is definitely going on my Christmas list!
