All Together Now...

SPOILER ALERT: Dinna read unless you've read chapter 82 in A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES.

I have to say something. Loudly. But I don't want to give away a spoiler.
So scroll down please, if you will....



Nothing further.
For now.
More to come...

Don't hold back, Carol, tell us how you REALLY feel! :-)

It took me a long time, and multiple re-reads, before I stopped muttering "you spiteful little B!TCH" (or words to that effect) every time I saw Malva's name in print.

I've always thought it was an interesting coincidence that "Malva", with the syllables reversed, is "va mal", French for "goes bad".

Diana, if asked, will deny she thought of that consciously. The character is supposedly named after a shampoo ingredient, or something innocuous like that. Or so she claims. :-)

Can I hear an AMEN here? AMEN sister!

Purgatory Carol said...

Karen, it's so funny, because every time I read "Malva", I think "Mulva" from Seinfeld!

All together now: "MALVA, YOU IGNORANT SLUT!!!"

And I don't even care that she's dead. Not one bit.

I hate that bitch. (Can I say that here? ;) ) Delete if you need to!!

Purgatory Carol said...

Oh sure you can, Sassy. I've said way worse. I canna even say "RIP Malva" because I still loathe her.

Ya know - Diana does a superior job tapping into this type of woman. She reminds me of Geillis. Totally alluring at first, until you find out what's really going on.

What? Malva dies???!! On chapter 83 so haven't reached that part yet but (God forgive me - she is fictional) good riddance to filth. I just hope poor Jamie's been cleared.
