The Foundling
The Foundling
by Georgette Heyer
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.59

4.0 out of 5 stars unexpected connection with another favourite author..., 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Foundling (Paperback)
I came to the wonderful Georgette Heyer relatively late.
This book is a revelation. More character based than many, the story is of course taken at a gallop as usual. But what makes it such a pleasure are the individual players personalities, especially the wonderful Mr Liversedge, who deserves a book of his own.
I enjoyed it a great deal as I have just finished (devoured) the entire Vor Universe of Lois McMaster Bujold, whose books somehow encompass Georgette Heyer style Regency high jinks and romance, with distant future epic space opera. Georgette fans take note!
The main protagonist, Miles Vorkosigan and his cousin Ivan must have been inspired a least a little by the rather diminutive Duke of Sale and his dashing cousin Gideon.
Loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written, cracking read., 16 Oct 2013

I came to the brilliantly plotted Lois Mcmaster Bujold universe through a complement to her clear, wonderfully vibrant prose.
That is apparent as soon as you start reading (start with Shards of Honour)
You will not be able to stop reading until you have read them all.
Genius.
