Good lord, melodramatic much? Ugh!

Do you reckon that Shelley (given this paragraph...) qualifies this book for the Lydia card?
i.e. "Read a book with an annoying character, or a character who does something stupid."

Shelley so far strikes me very much as a Lydia.

Yes, I'd say it DEFINITELY qualifies it. Of all the stilly harebrained characters, Shelley is certainly holding up his end so far. I'd use it with confidence. :)

I'd be inclined to agree.

LoL. I just got to this bit:

"The group continued to gather in the evenings at Villa Diodati and a few days after the writing competition had begun, on June 18, the supernatural theme continued. Byron read aloud Coleridge’s Christabel, an unfinished poem with a strong supernatural horror theme, to the assembled party. At one point Shelley began shrieking and ran from the room. Polidori went after him to calm him down."

Shelly is definitely a Lydia.

I don't see Lydia actually threatening suicide though.

The common quality here is stupidity or rather silliness, not life events.

Or being annoying....they both are definitely annoying.

Oh I agree. I just meant he's not Lydia in every respect, not that he wouldn't qualify for the card.

If I ever had any respect for Shelley, it would be well and truly gone at this point.

I'm annoyed in solidarity. So, yes, that sounds like it would fit!
Good grief LOL

Oh my, what a drama queen. I would say it´s a perfect fit :D
VERY much looks like you found your Lydia card. (She said, chiming in belatedly after a mid-book competition-weekend doing all sorts of things except ... reading and hanging out on BookLikes.)
