I'm a great fan of Nancy Mitford, but was disappointed in this book. She, I felt, overdid the erudition, and the whole thing became a little boring - not her usual attention-keeping style. Sorry, I would give this one a miss, as I didn't learn anything I didn't already know.

If there were more historical biographies written like this then kids would really learn it at school. She tells a good story, makes the characters interesting and you have an idea of the gestation of ideas and philosophy.

one of the great love stories as a really quite unpleasant if brilliant French man of letters falls for an aristocrat, mathematician, and already married woman many years his junior but of equally fierce intelligence
