I read a lot of Hyer between the ages of 12 and 14. I went off it because of the right wing bias. A lot of readers don't mind that, though, or anyway, can see past it enough to love the books despite it. I thought I would try them again, but as befor

Should anyone wish to comment on this review, would they have any objections to my publishing their comments in a series of articles I wish to write?

Thanks so much.

Amusing.

Another cross-genre with a large mystery element.

Heyer had a certain number of stock characters and stock situations and she moved these about, a bit like building blocks. An excellent idea for minimising effort.

I recognise Nicky, for ins

The Black Moth by Georgette Heyer

Generally entertaining.
This is full of lively writing. There are also, some very good descriptions of scenery etc in this. There's a piece of writing early on describing a sunset which is remarkably vivid. Heyer didn't seem to go in for that later,

Many readers love this. It was certainly unusual for the time, in depicting a plain heroine.

On the good things about this book -some of the selfish talk of Adam's mother, who seems to be a combination of all Jane Austen's most tiresome matrons, is a

I liked a lot of this one because of its heroine is such an amazon. I wish all Heyer's heriones were like that. I hope she never let the overbearing Charles master her. It's also one of her funniest.

Interestingly, Augustus Fawnhope put me in mind of

I avoid giving low star ratings as a rule, but I just have to for any book that gives a happy ending to a rapist or would be rapist hero. Yes, I know this is just meant to be escapist fun, but I still find the rape attempt ugly and am frankly worried ...more

An Infamous Army by Georgette Heyer

Thackeray's depiction of the build up to,and terse depictions of, the Battle of Waterloo is a hard act to follow. Heyer says so herself, in her preface.

My own view of the French Revolutionary Wars that led on to the Napoleonic Wars is a long way fro
