    Whew That was fun and very riveting I even groaned throughout with uncertainty hardlyeverhappens A little less foolishness with the romantic relationship, and a very quick moving engaging plot I was especially engaged with the mood and atmosphere and a real sense of place and time and of course who doesn t love to see arch enemies meet again The repartee and tension between Chauvelin and Percy is excellent, although I was a little disappointed at not seeing them swordfight.A page tur Whew That was fun and very riveting I even groaned throughout with uncertainty hardlye...

    This is my second foray into Pimpernel literature This is actually the third book chronologically I m not sure yet how episodic the story works outthis is evidently taking place after the first novel but I didn t feel like I missed out on anything by skipping the second book It also didn t really feel like much would have been missed by skipping the first book although the first did involvecharacter development of the core characters I would...

    I really, really, really loved this book Why 1 It has a very fast pace By chapter 4, the events are already building to the climax 2 I happen to really love Marguerite as a character as most of this book is once again told in her POV 3 It is absolutely hilarious Most of the Scarlet Pimpernel books are funny in some measure, but much of this book, and especially the ending had me snorting with laughter The author very cleverly uses what we consider today to be clich s and turns them I really, really, really loved this book Why 1 It has a very fast pace By chapter 4, the events are already building to the climax 2 I happen to really love Marguerite as a character as most of this book is once again told in...

    Just awful Magnifies all the weaknesses of The Scarlet Pimpernel, to the point where the sequel has made me like the first book less than I did originally The plot here is flimsy at best, the histrionics are neverending, and the aristocracy worship is seriously out of hand.The sad thing is that there s an interesting conflict buried deep beneath the swooning fits, between Percy s love of adventure and his love for Marguerite her desire to keep him safe at home But it isn t addressed in a mean Just awful Magnifies all the weaknesses of The Scarlet Pimpernel, to the point where the sequel has made me like the first book less than I did originally The plot here is flimsy at best, the histrionics are neverending, and the aristocracy worship is seriously out of hand.The sad thing is that there s an interesting conflict buried deep beneath the swooning fits, between Percy s love of adventure and his love for Marguerite her desire to keep him safe at home But it isn t addressed in a meaningful way it s just a reason for Percy to demonstrate his superhuman w...

    Like so many of the Pimpernel stories, this one has a good story at its heart The ever hopeful Chauvelin seriously under pressure from Robespierre and his goons, given his past failures comes up with yet another scheme to lure his arch enemy to French shores with the intent of capturing the Scarlet Pimpernel and sending him to the guillotine Also as ever, Chauvelin receives unintentional help from his quarry s well meaning and passionately devoted but, alas, not terribly bright wife, Marguer Like so many of the Pimpernel stories, this one has a good story at its heart The ever hopeful Chauvelin seriously under pressure from Robespierre and his goons, given his past failures comes up with yet another scheme to lure his arch enemy to French shores with the intent of capturing the Scarlet Pimpernel and sending him to the guillotine Also as ever, Chauvelin receives unintentional help from his quarry s well meaning and passionately devoted but, alas, not terribly bright wife, Marguerite At least this adventure explicitly addresses the irony of said wife once having been known as the cleverest woman in Europ...

    This is the weakest of the Pimpernel books I ve read, but it s still enjoyable The villain spends so much time talking in monologues, that very little happens after the first third of the book He goes on forever, farthan was needed It really got old Then, all of a sudden, the big escape happened in the blink of an eye and the book was over This entry in the series isn t paced nearly as well as the other 2 Pimper...

    The story was not nearly as interesting as the original book Even the sequel to this one is better Eldorado No swashbuckling Seriously This is the Scarlet Pimpernel after all In spite of the less than fascinating storyline, I enjoyed the exceptional writing It s amazing that Orczy had such a terrific grasp of English since it was not her first language The theme of self sacrifice for the good of others is also a boon to this book.I plan to read all 11 titles in the Pimpernel anthology, The story was not nearly as interesting as the original book Even the sequel to this one is better Eldorado No swashbuckling Seriously This is the Scarlet Pimpernel after all In spite of the less than fascinating storyline,...
