Their skill at whist It
Was Written In 1965 But written in 1965 but held up uite well The story is fast paced yet full of substantive historical detail I will take it on faith that the author knows her 1813 chronology and historical personages better than I ver care to A rag tag group of three set out as adventurers to arn nough money to turn their lives around amid the shifting landscape of Germany and France during the Napoleonic Wars Interesting concept and I was interestedHowever this novel puts me in mind of a weakly received historical Hurrah For The Blackshirts!: Fascists and Fascism in Britain Between the Wars epic one that s mildly interestingnough to keep watching but is a slog to actually but is a tough slog to actually It well written but didn t particularly Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life engage meWhile the beginning was promising and uite dark with humorous interludes and the start of a journey it began to delve very deeply into the politics of the Napoleonic Wars and became rather dryCharles went from reminding me of Wilde s Algernon to someone that just irritated me Not only was he horrifically misogynistic but he began to remind me of Louisa May Alcott s Charlie always thinking he is right and not listening to others until it is too late His romance with Sonia did not interest me at all and I personally felt Sonia could have done a lot better than any of her love interestsSonia was treated as a childxplicitly in many cases by the majority of characters in the book Yes she was seventeeneighteen and personality wise still displayed many youthful tendencies but she also picked herself up multiple times after unspeakable tragedy I feel like Sonia was portrayed Crazy Love excellently but her fellow characters treated her poorly than she deservedThe only romance depicted throughout the book was the potential of a renewed one between Giles and Elizabeth It was also the only romance in the book that I couldven remotely care about or take interest in I d read a whole historical romance with that plot I dare sayThe Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society ending was sufficiently dramatic for me to finish the last few pages in a rush but it did feel like there was a strange shift from dense historical to historical romance in the last 50 pagesOverall it was worth a read and I liked the concept but it didn t draw me innough for me to fully njoy it An ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in xchange for an honest review I ve been rereading books my mother gave me when I was much younger Lucky you getting to read these reviewsI seem to remember reading this book a lot I had absolutely no memory of the middle third of the book Like none I knew how it started and how it nded but I apparently blocked out what felt like a slog All the way Across All of France I suggest you do the sam.
