HASH(0xa5b70af8) out of 5 stars One of many great Scarlet Pimpernel novels Jan. 20 2011
By Linda - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Baroness Emmuska Orczy wrote a dozen or more novels--a series on The Scarlet Pimpernel. If you aren't familiar with this character, he was an English aristocrat who with a league of his friends would disguise themselves and save French aristocrats who were about to be guillotined. He would use his wits mostly although some of the movies and TV series have him using a sword and more action than you find in the books. There are villains, heroes and romances going on. The whole series is addictive and absolutely enjoyable. Once you start reading, it is hard to put down because you are kept on the edge of your seat.

The only thing I don't care for is that a lot of the French names are hard to pronounce (since I don't know French).

The best thing about these books is that you can get them for the Kindle for free since they are in the public domain now. You can also find some that are not free. I don't know if the ones you pay for are any better--possibly they have been edited more? I find that when I read free books that are in the public domain, there are often typos or something that shows the story was scanned and OCR performed. Unless it is gone over and edited carefully, you will see a little of that.

HASH(0xa5bca6c0) out of 5 stars Deserves a five star rating! Feb. 9 2012

I love this book! It is definitely my favorite book with Marguerite (except for TSP of course!).

Sir Percy takes on what is possibly his biggest challenge yet - rescuing the Dauphin of France. When a certain member of the League (who also happens to be related to our hero) falls in love with a French actress, Percy is caught by archenemy Chauvelin. Marguerite is not long in coming after him, and with all of these people depending on the SP, he may not be able to rescue himself. With Percy pitted against Chauvelin... well, things will get very interesting.

Things start off slowly, the main focus being on Armand. But the slow start doesn't last for long. With a great plot, a few Marguerite/Percy moments, and a tight conflict between our two favorite enemies, this book definitely rates five stars.

I feel the Scarlet Pimpernel books are great works of art, if somewhat sappy. If you have ever seen the movie version with Jane Seymour you will recognize the plot a quarter way in. However, it is an enjoyable read nontheless.

I remember reading this book and loved it back then. Fast forward to a few decades later and I still love it. The romantic idealism that is dominant rocks!

I really enjoyed it, although, I know I would have reservations if anyone but Orczy wrote this. Among the things I liked most, was seeing how the league worked from the inside and watching Percy give instruction. The dynamic between Percy and his men isn't quite what you'd expect of those altruistically risking their lives to save others (except maybe for Foulkes)! My other favorite aspect of the book was seeing Percy physically tortured. While Orczy tried to write it in such a way that made Percy seem as unrealistically strong as possible, (something that would bother me if I wasn't so fond of the series), I had been rather hoping for a torture scene for a long time, so when I stumbled upon this book I loved it. I heartily approve ofthis book and would suggest it to any Scarlet Pimpernel fan.
