Enjolvert wrote:There's something I find interesting about her in the book. While she's vile like her husband, her care for her daughters is interesting. It almost makes her better than Thenardier; unlike him there's something she cares for and a hint of decency, even if she shows it to others in a horrible way, like treating Cosette as inferior to them. Then there's the fact that she's more villainous than general in the show.
Acaila wrote:And even then, I feel like she's more one of those hideously annoying mothers who thinks that their little darling can do no wrong and is better than any other child. So more aggressive unfounded pride than motherly affection.
