This review is from: Perdita: The Life of Mary Robinson (Paperback)
I started reading the book as Mary Robinson, known as Perdita, because of her role on the stage, was a contemporary of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire.
I thought the beginning was great, her silly marriage, her part in leading the Ton, her seduction of the Prince Regent and so on. This section was scimmed over though.
I found that the book was too concerned with quotes, which interrupted the narrative. I aso thought the last quater was really slow and got dull to read.
An interesting book, about an interesting lady non-the-less.
