To think that Dino Ferranti was a manipulative ass?

Just re-reading Riders and its struck me that he was being a complete ass to Fen - telling her that he wasn't going to wait around for her and if she wouldn't sleep with him he'd just go elsewhere. hmm

PomBearArmy I think it's generally acknowledged that jilly has terrible ideas about what makes someone handsome so you just have to ignore anything she says in RL and think of the images you have made up in your own head. My Rupert is absolutely nothing like Andrew Parker Bowles.

I knew they had bowlersarm and was planning to quote that passage from the book if anyone continued to disagree today grin.

Sparkly it took me ages to type all that out.....grin.

Was anyone else incredibly disappointed by the TV version of riders?

Yes, couldn't watch it.

no one on RL could possibly match up to the glamorous images of the characters we have in our heads.

Thanks for that bowlersarm, I was finding my Jilly knowledge being doubted quite distressing!

Very true Bowlers! Rupert in particular just did not live up to expectations.

I'm at the part with Enrico 'salami cock' Mancini. He's yucky.

Prepare to go confused at the time-scales. Don't try to work out why the sister died aged nine seven or nine years before the seven year old was born yet her mother is in her mid-thirties. It's like in Jilly Cooper when polo and horse-racing are regularly featured in the tabloids. You have to suspend disbelief!
