Five stars is not enough!

I borrowed this book from the library and ended up with so much overdue fines and worse I had to pay for the book cause I refused to return it. It was that good! This book has EVERYTHING. A great historical theme,a strong and brilliant heroine, an intellectual and lovable hero and a delicious lovestory. Who could ask for more? One more thing, I always love Ms Riley's thorough and very realistic approach to historical settings. She does the best research and puts them into pen and paper with just enough breath to make them oh so alive for her readers. This one in particular is her best work ever! This is a must read!

    Tedious

    I'd give it two and a half stars if I could but gave it three as I couldn't split the difference.

    The book is a good concept but could have been written in half the number of pages. At times it is a wearying read and 3/4 through, I was ready to just forget it and go to another book. The writer just pounds her nails too deeply in wandering inner reflections so the book seems to at many times suffocate itself. I love history and long books (Stephen King's 1000+ pager the Stand for example) don't bother me at all. This one just seemed to get tiring.

    Interesting characters, some not very realistic, and in real life, a lot doesn't just work out as it did in this book. It tries hard but doesn't really be what it tries to be if that makes any sense. It's a bit fantasy guised under fiction clothed in attempt at being "real life" and shrouded in unlikely connections and scenarios. It's ok as a read but not going on my shelf as one of my better books or Nook Book which this one is.

    Hope this helps someone.

    I think this book was extremely well written and researched. I was pleased that it was based on factual events as well. It did have some slower parts, where I was like "get on with it". It was a quick read, held my interest and I would recommend it to others. I wanted just a little bit more closure at the end but I did like where it left the main character.

    OK- but not Riveting

    This never totally caught me up in the characters or the story. Though it's based on a historical event in Paris, not sure just how much of the story is fictional.
