The Scarlet Pimpernel - Emmuska Orczy, Sarah Sasson Well...this was fun. Plain and simple.I was quite surprised that the republicans and aristocrats weren't painted as black and white as you'd expect considering this bookn was written by an aristocrat. In fact Marguerite and her brother still consider themselves republicans but the horrendous crimes commited during the Terror made them turn away from the French republicans. It is even admitted that some of the aristocrats perhaps didn't act in the most reasonable way. Though of course all the aristocrats that the Scarlet Pimpernel saves are good people and never did anything wrong, while Chauvelin, the antagonist is one of those people that even have an evil laugh (hey, I just said it was less black and white than expected, not that it was an in-depth look at the causes of the French Revolution).Anyway, as I said the book is simply lots of fun. It is very well written and one of those books where, even though I knew how it would end (well, there are more novels featuring the Scarlet Pimpernel), I was quite exited about how it would all end and it was very much a page-turner.
