incidents and accidents, hints and allegations

Trillian is not like that, I'm sorry, she just isn't.

I thought the romantic subplot was cheesy to the point of being dorky, but I wasn't offended by Trillian's character. Mostly because I don't recall thing one about her from the books, which leads me to think that she didn't have much of a character to begin with.

Of course, I said the same thing about Faramir in Lord of the Rings, so I may just lack the gene for finding deep reservoirs of personality in bit players.

She's the only sensible one in the whole damn series, and goes off because she had an astrophysics degree that was languishing while she was on the dole (there's a point in favor of it being a 1980s British book), not because she's all big-eyed and breathy for excitement and better relationships.

It's not as bad as Faramir, but it's annoying all the same.

You have ascribed more personality and motivation to Trillian in that sentence than I got out of reading the book dozens of times.

To be fair, some of that's from the third book, where she is the one to save the day.
