Comments for Swann's Way: Swann in Love: Cordelia Chase

Cordelia ChaseSwann's Way: Swann in Love: Cordelia Chase: 10/23/09

I'm on my 17th week of reading Swann's Way (Du côté de chez Swann). I'm up to page 510. In three more weeks, I will have finished this book!

Much of the thirty pages from 480 to 510 are centered on the Princess and her friendship with Charles Swann. The Princess is written as a shallow but powerful woman. What thought pops into her mind slips out her mouth without any pause. Remind you anyone? How about Cordelia Chase from Buffy the Vampire Slayer the TV series and it's spin-off Angel?

I had fun recasting the characters in Swann's Way against the Scooby Gang. The two obvious choices beyond the Princess being Cordelia since she can't be seen with certain people or visit certain homes just because are Swann (Xander) and Odette (Anya). That's right, Odette just might be vengeance demon who is slumming it among the humans.

I'm going to cut this week's post short. I'm still getting over the flu and I just can't concentrate on doing a more in depth reading. Maybe that's why I connected so easily between the Princess and Cordelia.
