** spoiler alert ** This is quite an excellent adventure book, and I enjoyed it very much. What I liked the most about it is that it's not actually about the Pimpernel himself but rather Lady Blakeney.

It's also an interesting read because of how clearly it inspired future adventure heroes such as Batman. If you don't see the similarities between Bruce Wayne and Percy Blakeney you're probably blind.
