5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Introduction to Julia Quinn, 5 July 2008
This review is from: The Viscount Who Loved Me: Number 2 in series (Bridgerton Family) (Paperback)
This was my first glimpse into the world of the Bridgertons, and my first Julia Quinn novel. I picked it up from my local library very randomly, and I am glad I wasn't disappointed. In fact, this turned out to be one of my most favourite romantic comedy novels (Quinn or otherwise).

Anthony and Kate are an absolute delight. They're witty, funny and oh-so-malicious; they had me in fits of laughter at their antics. But at the heart of the story, they share a common fear - a fear that not only unites them but also allows them to let go of the past that they hold (unconsciously sometimes) painfully close to themselves. The Bridgerton series as a whole is a masterpiece, but as with every such series, there are some installments that are better, funnier and more clever than others, and "Viscount" is one of them.

The books do not *have* to be read in order (I began with this one and then went back to "The Duke and I", continuing with the series from there), but it is certainly interesting to read them in order, as the Bridgerton clan does tend to show up in every installment. I must say, the Bridgertons are the funniest family I have ever read (or, for that matter, seen!) and I can only marvel at Quinn's expertise in creating such a lovable family. Don't forget to check out the 2nd Epilogue that goes along with this novel (found on Quinn's website) - it is freakishly funny and features possibly the best literary invention ever - The Mallet of Death!
