THIS BOOK GUYS!
The Scarlet Pimpernel is known as one of the first novels of the genre of the masked avenger. It is such a good time! I meant to catch up on sleep last night, but I finished it instead because I needed to know how they got away! So much for early morning yoga.
This is definitely not a thinking book. You won’t come away from it with a new world perspective, but it is a really good time. The Scarlet Pimpernel is a little predictable in character. It’s not really a shock who anyone is, or how they behave. I’ll admit it feels like a precursor to modern romance novels. It’s so much fun though! I definitely feel like I went on an adventure, and I want to read the other two in Orczy’s series.
I’m going to call this one book candy, and tell you all to read it when you have tired brain.
