Product Description

Review

Published in 1850 and set against the turbulence of 17th-century Holland, this is a dramatic story of obsession, adventure, danger and romantic love. Its star is the black tulip, symbol of triumph over evil. Tulip fanatic Cornelius van Baerle is framed for treason by his jealous neighbour, but his sentence is commuted just as the executioner's axe is raised. In prison Rosa, the jailor's daughter, nurtures Cornelius's dream of producing the mythical bloom. A masterly narration re-creates the full magnificence of Dumas's theatre. --The Observer

Alexandre Dumas is known mostly for The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo. His novel The Black Tulip deserves to be better known, and Naxos has done something about it. In an excellently real audiobook, we are taken to late seventeenth-century Holland. There, the conflict between the Dutch and France is one theme of the book, and the obsession with tulips is another. Treason, deceit, greed and love drive the story of The Black Tulip. Peter Joyce gives it a highly dramatic reading that makes listening to the story almost compulsive. --Alide Kohlhaas, Seniors Review

About the Author

Alexandre Dumas was famous throughout the world for his historical novels of heroism and adventure, including The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. His father, a General, died when Alexandre was four, and his mother raised him on stories of his father's exploits. Like many authors of his day, he began writing plays and journalism, later moving on to serialized fiction and crime stories. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I like to listen to the classics by c.d. ---- maybe I am lazy??? but I find it easier sometimes to absorb and this I found was not an easy book to read. The c.d. is a great version of Dumas's famous The Black Tulip........ and I would recommend.

OK, if your taste runs to gothic melodrama. It passed the time whilst I was recovering from influenza.
