Customer Review

on 29 May 2013
Georgette Heyer wrote many novels better than this, but it still contains more wit than anything published by any other author in the past twenty or thirty years. Men tend to avoid Heyer's books because they think they're only about romance, but nothing could be further from the truth. The period details is excellent - the research is superb (Heyer's 'An Infamous Army' is the best novel about the Battle of Waterloo that there is and, yes, of course I've read Vanity Fair). The occasional abuse of the present participle niggles (Miss Heyer confuses it with the simple past, much like BBC presenters today), but otherwise her use of language is very good. Give it go, guys. You'll be surprised.
