Hur gick det se´n?


April 7: Top Ten Characters You'd Like To Check In With (meaning, the book or series is over and you so just wish you could peek in on the "life" you imagine they are leading years down the line after the story ends). Does this prompt make sense?? It makes sense in my head! Let me know and I can clarify haha!

1. Scarlet O´Hara. What happened efter the scene where Scarlet is sitting on a step, all alone. She has to start again and she is full of hope: "I,ll think of it all tomorrow, at Tara. I can stand it then. Tomorrow I´ll think of some way to get him back. After all, tomorrow is another day."
2. What happened to Edmond Dantès! after his release from prison and his revenge on those who had treated him ill. Is he married to Mercedes? How is he living? A long time ago I loved The Count of Monte Cristo and now I´m interested in his life and whereabouts. 
3. Jane Eyre and Mr Rochester is just in the beginning of a new life at the end of Jane Austen´s Jane Eyre. It´s an interesting relation and I would like to know how they are getting on.
Kristina Sandberg
4. How do Maj Berlund´s children remember their mother their childhood and how are they leading their lives? Kristina Sandberg is the author of thre novels about Maj Berlund´s life; Att föda ett barn, Sörja för de sina; Liv till varje pris.
5. In The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy. Egdon Heath is the main character. I suppose that the heath has changed in many ways since 1878 and I would like to know how (or perhaps not...)
6. What has happened to Maureen O´Donnell in the Garnethill-trilogy by Denise Mina since Resolution? Is she still living in Glasgow? Is she still alone?
7.  Korparna is the title of a wonderful novel by Tomas Bannerhed. The main caracter is a young boy named Klas who is very interested in birds. His father wants him to continue the work at the farm which has been in the family for long. Klas wants to leave for studies, but he doesn´t dare to tell his father.
What´s Klas´life like to-day?

8. What became of Dina and Dorinda in Eric Linklater´s The Wind on the Moon?
They are about 85 years by now and I hope they are still kicking and alive.

    Jane och Rochester är centrala figurer i den första Thursday Next-boken.

    1. jag måste läsa om Thursday Next. och jag måste också förnya bekantskapen med Dina och Dorinda

  3. Jag har inte läst några av dessa, men jag är ganska intresserad av både Gone With the Wind och Jane Eyre. Kanske måste kolla upp dem snarast? :)

    1. filmerna är också värda att se. Borta med vinden är en sådan där ungdomsupplevelse man gärna minns. Jane Eyre har jag läst och sett flera ggr
