Cyrano De Bergerac is a story that takes place in the 1640's about a swordsman who has a rather large nose who falls in love with his very intellectual and beautiful cousin Roxanne. Cyrano cannot find a way to tell Roxanne the way he fells about her until a foolish man insults his nose. So instead of killing him Cyrano uses the man to his advantage and uses him to translate poems to Roxanne without her knowing that it is Cyrano who is making these wonderful poems of love which Roxanne is intrigued by. It ends up finally that Cyrano cannot keep playing these games and eventually Roxanne marries the other man. Cyrano goes to war and doesn't see Roxanne for years until they meet for one last time.
Overall this book had a great plot but dragged on at parts and the reading was somewhat confusing but if you understand sayings like "Now then, you Picaroons, Perk up and hear me mutter. Here's you bout bustle around some cull, and bite his bung." Then I think you'll enjoy the rest of the text. So If you like love and adventure with great characterization I would definitely recommend this book other wise I would stay far away from this book.
