Yeah, Edmond never made much sense to me as a character. I quite hated him for the most of the book, especially around the middle when, upon asked why his slave hadn't walked off yet, he replied: "And who is to tell her she is free?"

Of course, it's supposed to be a character, but I find it telling he's so vengeful on Mercedes, despite the fact that she didn't have all that much choice, considering her position in life.

On the other hand, this is one of the few "classics" with lesbian characters in it. Yey!

Yes he is not easy to like...but as I wrote in my review I also can't really hate him. But the plotline with Mercedes did bother me a lot as well.
