Comments to eBook A Gentleman Of France
Little Devil
Very Dumas-like in its execution, except for the first-person writing. I read this a few years ago and lost my hard copy, but by searching on Dumas and Shellabarger I was able to locate it in the Kindle store. A pleasant afternoon read of a time that I've not seen many books about.
Hugighma
I chose the book because it was written in the 1920's and I like the colder style of writing. It is in the style of Three Musketeers, Scaramouche or Scarlet Pimpernal but different. It was entertaining but a little long at times. Overall it was a good read.
Ballagar
A superb piece of historical fiction, which also has a message to deliver. At the beginning of the story, the main character is as far away from a romantic hero as one can only imagine. But as the action develops his real qualities - honour, dignity, honesty, courage, wits -- come to the surface, helping the reader (and the heroine) to realise what it is that makes one a true hero. Old-fashioned, to be sure, but eminently enjoyable nevertheless.
TheSuspect
If you're a fan of Rafael Sabatini, you'll like this book. Sabatini himself admired Weyman, primarily because he did his research and the characters and places were true to the times. Sabatini was later described as writing history disguised as fiction. I like accuracy, even in my fiction. Weyman's stories are worth the read, and this is one of his better ones.
BroWelm
This book is wonderful for those interested in pre-revolution France. Written from the perspective of a washed up member of the upper class. It follows his journeys through french society as he encouters those of bother upper and lower classes. It is filled with adventure and intrigue. Worthy of the time it takes to read and definitely a favorite of mine
Yannara
An aging, down on his luck, French Gentleman in the rein of Henry III is selected to go on a mission to retrieve a young, beautiful noblewoman, by Henry King of Navarre. Truly this is one of the best Weyman books, and one of the greatest of swashbuckling adventure fiction.
Nakora
I hated this book. The writing in it was atrocious and extremely difficult to read. I understand that it wasn't written by a modern author, but I have read historical documents before and didn't find them as bad as this book. The characters were dull and unlikeable, especially the main character who I instantly hated. I do not recommend this book.
