3.0 out of 5 stars Oh boy, where to start...., 7 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Beloved Enemy (Mass Market Paperback)
There were many parts of this story I loved, and many others I disliked emencely. The two cancel each other out, which is why I rated this with a three star. First and foremost, I loved the time period in which this story was written. So few writers choose to write about Parlimentary England. Ms. Feather does a wonderful job in depicting the time period, the thoughts of the antagonists, the clothing, and everyday life. The story was filled with rich details and smooth writing. Life was so much different then, as compaired to today and this is wonderfully shown in the story. Our characters are well formed and very likable. Virginia and Alex mix well together.
I did not like, however, the 'I-hate-you-becuase-you-are-the-enemy,-but-can't-help-but-loving-you' storyline. I realize that is the title of the book and the whole premise of the relationship, but I didn't like it. The pretext Virginia keeps putting up, just didn't seem believable. If she hated Alex so much she could never have done what whe did, if she loved him, she could never have done what she did. I felt that you couldn't have it both ways, or atleast not the way THIS story was written. I also didn't appreciate what happens with Virginia's personal life. I don't want to give too much of the story away, but I felt that the second half of this story went WAY beyond credibility. After Virginia leaves England, there is not too much of the story I found redeming. It was an enjoyable read becuase the writting style was so fluid, but I had a pretty hard time getting into the plot.
