    The Affair of the Necklace, although sometimes hard to follow, i

    The Affair of the Necklace, although sometimes hard to follow, is a quick and easy read. Anyone in middle school or older could easily read this book with only a few misunderstandings of what happens. Elizabeth Hand is a very complex writer, but she conveys the story in a way that is interesting and full of detail. She takes you back to the 18th century during the affair and makes you feel like you are a part of everything.
    I liked this book because it was full of action. Although there was no fighting, there was a lot of drama and suspense. I got sucked into this book right from the beginning. I connected with the main character Jeanne and it felt like she became a part of me. The think I liked most about this book was that it was relatable. All the relationships between characters were just like a relationship of any kind today. They go through up and downs together and sometimes there’s hardships that can’t be overcome. Just like in today’s society, relationships are a hard thing and you really have to work on them to be successful.
    I would recommend this book to a variety of people but mostly to middle school and high school students. If you are interested in history, this is a great book for you. Although the book itself is historical fiction, it relates so closely to the affair that did actually happen.
    Overall this book was surprisingly enjoyable to read. I am not a huge fan of history but this book was a good choice in my opinion. The one thing about this book that I don’t like is that it is hard to follow in some places, but once you go back and reread, it becomes clear as to what is happening. I am glad I chose this book to read and many others should have the pleasure of reading this book.
