Sonya? I assume that’s your name. I appreciated your post in general, but specifically I do want to answer your question about Mr. Willoughby. I did always find the way DG described him and referred to him quite jarring. “The little Chinese”. He was an interesting character, but in many ways I thought he was much more of a stereotype than most of her other characters. His backstory was very interesting, but he was always sort of alien, as if we couldn’t quite get into his head. (I also had issues with the book’s ‘little rat-faced Murtagh’ and I’m so happy the TV series has characterized him differently. I am a big fan of TV Murtagh.) I don’t know that I’ve ever seen DG answer a question about Mr. Willoughby, I’d be curious to hear her thoughts about him at this point.
