Customer Review

on 9 January 1998
If you love an Indiana Jones-type hero, an intelligent dreamer of a heroine, and a story set in exotic Cairo, this book is for you. 'As You Desire" is indeed a good, funny romp. Harry Braxton and Desdemona Carlisle were in love with each other, but there were several hitches. One, Desdemona oh-so wanted to move to England so that her grandfather could receive a tenure at the Royal Museum. Two, Harry refused to return to England; he was dyslexic and in England he would be treated with pity. So there you go. In came Harry's cousin Blake, who was everything Desdmona wanted in a hero. Only thing was, Harry's always distracting her attempts to fall for Blake. It was a hilarious rollercoaster ride to go through this book, as Harry tries so hard to change Desdemona's mind, and Desdemona trying to forget Harry but failing. These two are reminiscent of Bogard and Bergman; two persons who were friends before lovers. And it is us readers who reap the fun as we watch them fall truly, madly, dizzly in love.
