    Reread buddy read with the Georgette Heyer group Yeah, sorry to all my friends who are major Heyer fans, but this is staying at 3 stars It s fun, but very lightweight.It s got a pretty HIGHLY melodramatic plot, centering around one Lord John Carstares our hero, Jack who s been accused of cheating at cards the SHAME especially since he only confessed to protect the real cheater, his spineless younger brother and is now a highwayman cheating at cards with your noble friends somehow being Reread buddy read with the Georgette Heyer group Yeah, sorry to all my friends who are major Heyer fans, but this is staying at 3 stars It s fun, but very lightweight.It s got a pretty HIGHLY melodramatic plot, centering around one Lord John Carstares our hero, Jack who s been accused of cheating at cards the SHAME especially since he only confessed...

    They re all idiots.Okay, here s the twist and my conundrum in rating this book A good part of this just reads as melodramatic Georgian period llama drama Overblown On the other hand, there are parts of this where the absurdity of it is evident it s mocking the behavior in a Much Ado About Nothing kinda way So, reader mood when approaching this really affects how it is received Oddly enough, I went back and forth between the two and it seemed to drag on a bit in places therefore, I m not e They re all idiots.Okay, here s the twist and my conundrum in rating this book A good part of this just reads as melodramatic Georgian period llama drama Overblown...

    This is Georgette Heyer s first pancake She wrote it as a teen It s a cliche later silver fork novel with an adventure overlay, showing heavy influence of Orczy and Jeffrey Farnol in particular but she seems to have discovered that she really liked writing the rakish villain Because, though this one has the proper ending, the villain is the best character, and she knows itso she rewrote it with the very same sort of villain, but makes him the hero, in These Old Shades She had also di This is Georgette Heye...

    I love Heyer but not this I enjoyed the historical details, the fashion, etc I think it s impressive that she wrote this at such a tender age It was on target for 3 stars but I found the second half really quite tedious..

    Oh novel, how do I object to thee Let me count the ways1 The title is a phrase that refers to the villian that is mentioned ONLY ONCE over the course of the novel And it has something to do with the way he dresses Really, guys Can t we come up with something , you know, related to the story 2 The villian is a jerk who tries to kidnap and ravish our poor heroine twice and receives absolutely no punishment at the end, unless you ...

    3.5What a lovely story It made me smile and laugh, then it made me sad, annoyed, frustrated I wanted to strangle a couple of characters too and hug and kiss others At one point it got a bit slow, but it didn t mess up the story.Don t expect to spend a lot of time with the protagonists, especially Diana She is lovely, though Jack Carstares appears a bit , but mostly you follow around his weak younger brother, his infuriating...

    My rating system Hate it Nothing there to like Not a favorite, but readable and others might like it and usually do I really like it, but it is not to be confused with a true genius True Genius.Unlike other Georgette Heyer fans, this is one of my favorite novels I first read it many years ago when I was 13 years old I recently re read it and found that I liked it just as much now The first chapter is hard to read as it brandies about so many names, I had to read it twice I rem My rating system Hate it Nothing there to like Not a favorite, but readable and others might like it and usually do I really like it, but it is not to be confused with a true genius True Genius.Unlike other Georgette Heyer fans, this is one of my favorite novels I first read it many years ago when I was 13 years old I recently re read it and found that I liked it just as much now The first chapter is hard to read as it brandies about so many names, I had to read it twice I remember I had to read it twice years ago as well, just to sort out who is who But after you get the characters straight, this is a wonderful book.I totally fell in love with this hero, and yes he is a genuine hero, not just the main male character Th...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This was a thoroughly enjoyable Heyer read worthy of four and a half stars The Duke of Andover, otherwise known as The Black Moth, is the wicked villain and it is his shenanigans that drives the plot of this story He is the most dastardly Heyer villain I have encountered thus far The swoony hero, Lord John Carstares, practically walks on water He is a devoted brother and is selfless en...

    I love this author, I am ADDICTED to this genre, and am the biggest fan of the language used in the melodramas of the 18th and 19th century, so well done here But I barely got through this bookI disliked it tremendously Than, why am I giving it 2 stars One is for the stylistics of the prose, and one is for giving her kudos for a first novel But there was much wrong with this entry, I am very sad to say I will only point to the most glaring one every character was as flat and shallow as I love this author, I am ADDICTED to this genre, and am the biggest fan of the language used in the melodramas of the 18th and 19th century, so well done ...
