    Robert Parry s latest historical novel, Wildish, is set in the 18th century, in Georgian England, a period I have never studied in depth This made me slightly wary of reading it because I like to have enough knowledge to be able to figure out what is fact and what is fiction However, my worries were unfounded because this novel concentrates on a fictitious character, and his friends, rather than a real historical character There are real characters and events in it, for example, Bonnie Prince Robert Parry s latest historical novel, Wildish, is set in the 18th century, in Georgian England, a period I have never studied in depth This made me slightly wary of reading it because I like to have enough knowledge to be able to figure out what is fact and what is fiction However, my worries were unfounded because this novel concentrates on a fictitious character, and his friends, rather than a real historical character There are real characters and events in it, for example, Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite uprising, but the focus is on the character and his quest to be transported to the heavens themselves by a harem of women.Matthew Wildish is a poet and Master Wig maker on a mission He enjoys life to the full, but wantsHe has had many women in his life, and has feelings for his best friend s wife, but he is convinced that he can reach a higher plane with his plan He must try and build his harem while avoiding the man eating Lady Snatchal, whose fall from a horse, she explains, has made her have an insatiable sexual appetite, and while repairing a very special wig for Lord Snatchal All that, while being a good friend to Sam, helping damsels in distress and gathering intelligence for the King phew By the end of the novel, Wildish has had an incredible journey fraught with danger and has discovered the true meaning of love The tag line of the novel is A story concerning different kinds of love and that is spot on The story covers friendship, sex, the love one has for one s country, family love and true love The story is also rather saucy at times and has some rather humorous moments Wildish does get himself into some tricky situations I was intrigued by the start of the book, when Wildish starts planning his quest for love, and I loved his character, but I must admit to struggling with the middle of the book I got a bit lost with the history and wondered where the story was going, but then it picked up and grabbed me onceI was hooked by the last third and although I wanted to know what would happen to Wildish and his friends I also didn t want the magic to end If you do get bogged down in the middle, keep reading, it s worth it As the 18th century is not my area of expertise, I would have liked a brief timeline of the historical events, just so that I could see where the fictional story fitted in with real events I was a bit disorientated at times The novel did, however, include a map showing places mentioned in the story and a brief guide to Matthew Wildish s London.Would I recommend it Yes, indeed It s a novel to get lost in

    This is one of a few books that I have read by Robert In my opinion, his books keep getting better It is very easy to dive into a story when you know the author knows the subject that they are writing about This book was a lot of fun to read, and I would highly recommend it to others who enjoy a little bit of history, a few twists and turns, and romance all in one Be prepared to blush a little even let out some laughter Even though the book is quite long, it is an easy read Cheers Robert This is one of a few books that I have read by Robert In my opinion, his books keep getting better It is very easy to dive into a story when you know the author knows the subject that they are writing about This book was a lot of fun to read, and I would highly recommend it to others who enjoy a little bit of history, a few twists and turns, and romance all in one Be prepared to blush a little even let out some laughter Even though the book is quite long, it is an easy read Cheers Robert

    What a wonderful read I loved the decadent, libidinous lifestyle of master wig maker, society gent and ladies man Matthew Wildish His crowd of friends make you laugh out loud, I snorted at the antics of the wig Sparkling, fun and well researched, a super treat for lovers of the Georgian era.

    This is the best book I have read for some time Lady Snatchal is the funniest character I have encountered in any book and there are amusing moments right the way through the text The book is romantic, erotic, full of suspense and highly erudite at the same time A real joy to read.

    Set in Georgian England during the Jacobite Uprising of 1745, this is the story of Matthew Wildish, Master Wig Maker, socialite and something of a ladies man Though he is not a titled gentleman, he moves in the most elite circles and has befriended many people in high places, however is still in the unique position of mixing with those of lower classes as well This distinction serves him well in many facets, as one of his side jobs consists of passing along information on those who may be a t Set in Georgian England during the Jacobite Uprising of 1745, this is the story of Matthew Wildish, Master Wig Maker, socialite and something of a ladies man Though he is not a titled gentleman, he moves in the most elite circles and has befriended many people in high places, however is still in the unique position of mixing with those of lower classes as well This distinction serves him well in many facets, as one of his side jobs consists of passing along information on those who may be a threat to the Hanoverian King George II.Matthew, with a little prompting from his muse, Johanna, begins working on a set of poems that will represent the seven celestial bodies The Sun, The Moon, Jupiter, Mercury, Saturn, Mars and Venus , andliterally seven women with whom he hopes to enjoy within a single day This part of the novel his conquests which takes up much of the first half, for me was not the most interesting aspect It becomes muchintriguing when a quirky, little link boy starts showing up at strange moments just when Matthew needs helping hand and the London begins to panic in earnest as a result of the impending danger from Scotland Suddenly life is not so rosy and Matthew finds he must set aside his personal plans to keep himself and his friends from danger.Although ultimately Matthew s amorous predilections turn into a great farce, it was an awkward introduction to his character Much of the early material is essential for character building however, and I won t hold it against the author but will say it may turn off somepicky readers I think Matthew finally grew on me when he made the decision to journey into enemy territory with a wild plan and no personal gain in mind.This is an excellent account of the Forty Five Rebellion lead by Bonnie Prince Charlie, Charles Edward Stuart, the ousted King James II s grandson also known as the Young Pretender The mood of the people, the two opposing sides and the gruesome details of the battles are minutely described to the very conclusion of this final Jacobite uprising in England.At 585 pages, this is definitely not a quick read but the pages seem to speed by as you re immersed in the storyline As there are not many historical novels set in this time period it is a refreshing break from the Plantagenets, Tudors and Borgias If you re looking for an involved, yet humorous read, with a bit of adventure and eccentricity mixed in, this novel will satisfy I really enjoyed it said the actress to the bishop, what

    You are perfectly right, of course, my darling, Lady Snatchal responds straight away with an aloof smile As I recall you once asked me to marry you precisely because you had such good taste, and I, as a woman, accepted because I had so very little And with this loud guffaw, at 58% of the way through where I was almost ready to give up, I finally began to enjoy this In some ways this was just not my cup of tea The humor is wonderfully reminiscent of the best of A Midsummer Night s Dream You are perfectly right, of course, my darling, Lady Snatchal responds straight away with an aloof smile As I recall you once asked me to marry you precisely because you had such good taste, and I, as a woman, accepted because I had so very little And with this loud guffaw, at 58% of the way through where I was almost ready to give up, I finally began to enjoy this In some ways this was just not my cup of tea The humor is wonderfully reminiscent of the best of A Midsummer Night s Dream and Thomas Hardy excellent company to be in I get it, I just don t always enjoy it I realize that I m in a huge minority giving it only 3 stars but I did like it, I just didn t love it It seemed to take me forever to get into it and even then I never quite got swept up in the tale until it was practically over I really wantedof Lady Snatchal, Matthew and Johanna.As in his other novels, the history is fascinating and one really does feel transported into Georgian England What The characters are such fun ridiculously human I adore Robert Parry s command of language and his sense of the absurd is wonderful If you love Henry Fielding and Shakespearean comedy you ll love this
