language
English

review 1: You can't fault Celia's plotting and the voices of her characters. This is a misadventure to enjoy. Caro and Rob cynically manipulate Jamie to take a step too far. Reminiscent of Les Liaisons Dangereuses and Doris Lessing's 'The Good Terrorist'. In well crafted smooth prose, Celi...

review 1: While not horrible, it's still not good. It could have been and should have been good. However, while constantly seeming to portray a strong young woman as a central character, we are really left with a willful and not always too bright young girl led about by characters around h...

review 1: I liked the story at first, but I kept reading I got bored. It was still a good read though. I found myself looking to see when the chapter or section would end so I could take a break and clear my head because I was constantly thinking about other things and had to reread quite ...

review 1: Celia Rees writes astonishingly good stories suitable for both adults and younger readers, with an extensive vocabulary. I love her usage of the English language and her expressive vocabulary. Set during the French revolution starting in England and moving to France it is both a ...
La ragazza con le pistole (2010)
language
English

review 1: ***Contains small spoilers*******LOVE the time period. Probably would have loved it better if Sovay was a French girl who was personally going through the Revolution. Not much of a fan of third person, especially when there's a character POV swap right in the middle of a scene. I...
Der Narr Und Das Mädchen (2011)
language
English

review 1: The events of the story are dark and tragic and tinged with magic and superstition. Will Shakespeare hears the story of events in Illyria from Violetta, Feste, and Violetta's kinswoman Maria. Much of the story is given over to those past events. The book is a little short on acti...
