My idiot self read the 5th book before this one! 😂🤣. I was wondering what the hell was going on when I read the other one! I mean I watch and own the shows but it was still off! Now I know!! Although, I could have skipped this one because this is the one in which Ross made me so mad I wanted to throw him off the roof! But I digress! Moving on ....

I cried reading parts of this book, something very rare for me.
Warleggan has to be one of the most heart wrenching books I have read, it is a beautifully written study of a marriage in crisis - this book shows how cruel people can unwittingly be to those who love them. Winston Graham shows the betrayal,the anger, the disgust - heightened emotions of self doubt, re ...more
My only problem so far is that I'm pretty sure after reading the next 8 books to complete the saga, I will have to go into mourning for these characters and their small portion of geography on the Cornwall coast.

Five stars once again. Winston Graham's writing just never gets old. I truly believe I could read these novels until I've memorized every word and still find them just as raw and emotional as if reading them for the first time.
Este es escritor no tiene consideración alguna con el sufrido lector.
Una fucking maravilla de libro.
This family has me completely ensnared in their lives! I'll be soon picking up The Black Moon, b ...more
To say I was disappointed in Mr. Ross Poldark's behavior would be the understatement of the year. Wondered if I could really keep reading but I did and loved the ending.
I am becoming dangerously obsessed with these people and their lives.
Winston Graham, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for getting my through the dreadful winter of 2015. You absolutely made it bearable an ...more
Ross Poldark's last gamble ......
He risks his happiness with Demelza as he tangles with the powerful Warleggan.
A very moving book with twists and turns over love.
I would recommend reading as the Poldark books have so much social history and are beautifully written.
A powerful moving book!
I loved it!
The growing power and influence of Warleggan throughout the novel is highlighted, as are the lives of Ross & Demelza, Francis ...more
So anxious for Aidan and Eleanor to return to it in Series 2 this September! Gaaaahh!!!
With every new part I'm more and more in love with this series.
Can't wait to read the next part. I need more Dwight & Caroline.
Brief because I have two books to go and the new series starts this weekend. Whee!
