Customer Review

on 7 June 2009
I first read this book ten years ago, and it really did something lasting to me. It's quite simply one of the best novels I have ever read. Rose Tremain is always a brilliant, precise and poised writer and I hope one day she will be awarded the Booker prize that she so richly deserves. Until I read Restoration I was not a great fan of historical fiction, but a friend thrust it at me - and I'm glad she did, because the wonderful, humane story of the intensely fallible and lovable Robert Merivel, has become firmly lodged in my heart. If I were a writer, this is the book I would most like to have written. As a reader, it's one I'm grateful to have read. And I will treasure it always.
