So, I know those interested demand some answers. Answers as to why I am seemingly so obsessed with this scene. Especially that look on Sue’s (Tae-Ri) face! I know you want to know why so serious, posting three caps of the close-up of Sue’s face, twice! Actually, make that thrice, counting this time as well!
Well, you are in luck. I couldn’t resist and started yesterday to read Fingersmith again. I am currently on page 101. This scene takes place on page 96-97. Well, as far as Sue’s POV is concerned. I mean, the good stuff mostly happens in Part 2 – Maud’s POV of the story so really, even if I tell you about Sue’s view, it is half a spoiler. Nay, it ‘s a quarter spoiler because Sue was just so innocent that I don’t think anyone reading this part for the first time felt anything out of the ordinary. Until they reached Maud’s side of the story. One doesn’t not truly appreciate everything in Sue’s view until we get to Maud.
And so I figured, I might as well explain why, what it is about this scene that so warrantees nine whole caps of the same second or so of video.
If you don’t want to get quarter spoiled, stop here.
First, let’s read the actual text of this scene in the book, according to Sue…
