I just finished TMOED. I have a string of emotions upon finishing this book. There are so many predictions I want to make for how Dickens would have finished it. The most obvious choice for the person responsible for the disappearance/assumed death of Edwin is Jasper. I mean Princess Puff Puff let out that subtle hint a long time ago. I want to believe it was Jasper and I wan’t to mentally hate him forever. But, was Dickens ever really that obvious? Every book of his that I have ever read, he surprises me. I never expect what he gives me and am always shocked my his plot twisting turns. So, did Jasper do it? To me, it’s the only plausible option. But, once again, Dickens is not always plausible. I think there is definitely a connection between the book starting out with all of the opiates and “ending” with it as well. I just can’t put it all together. ANGST, ANGST, ANGST,! I think I can rule out some suspects – Rosa, Helena, Rev. Crisparkle, Twinkleton, Grewgious. As for everyone else, I just can’t give up on them. I guess I am holding out for Dickens to blow my mind with a shocking twist that I never saw coming. I’m pretty sure I will be holding out for quite a while. (Insert sad face here.)
So, what about you guys? Who is responsible?
