Hi
I have read the convienent marriage and loved it, you do not have to wait for things to start happening and i found it very amusing. I thought charity girl was ok but not one of Heyers best but then she wrote so many there's bound to some that are not as good as others and i would not give it a negative review.
Also i fully agree about the code it drives me crazy

Hey Angie and Anna

I've "read" through Charity Girl too. Compared to the other books, it's almost like Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility to Pride and Prejeduice. None of "Charity Girls'" characters involved me and made me want to know them personally. Yes, it's a good book just because it's written by GH.

Angie I totally relate with you and this irritating captcha code!! It's never satisfied until you've tried countless times. Does anyone know the secret to doing it once?

On friday I'm lending the Convenient Marriage from a friend.

Has anyone read it? How did you enjoy it?

Hello--
Anna, I would not give Charity Girl a negative review, although it isn't one of my faves. I wonder if it just isn't as inspired as most of the Heyer books. It has all the ingredients of other books (sensible heroine with a crotchety mother and a heedless brother, for instance), but somehow it isn't as riveting. Not a complaint--there are works of Jane Austen's I prefer to other ones, and still I read them all! Same with Heyer.

On another subject, Louisa asked about Heyer giving her male characters 'large girths,' and she's right! If I recall correctly, Georgette Heyer was a tall woman, and she does seem to have her taller female characters enjoy looking up to a man, and those men are mostly solidly built. Think of Nell in The Toll Gate, and Sophy, and Ancilla Trent (referred to as a 'Long Meg' by Waldo's nephew). And I always remember Judith Taverner, 'built on Junoesque lines,' meeting her brother's future wife, and not being able to think of her as 'other than short.' (Maybe I remember it because I am built on the lines of a pin-dot.) Wait until you get to the end of Unknown Ajax, Louisa, and they all start raving about large men. Just off the top of my head, Miles in The Black Moth, John Staple in Toll Gate, Endymion Dauntry in Frederica, are all large.

Btw, am I the only one driven crazy by the captcha code? Half the time I get it wrong (do they want capital letters or not?) and if I've forgotten to copy my post to the clipboard it's VERY annoying because one has to start all over.

Hi Louisa!

Out of the books that you have listed below I am in the process of reading 'Charity Girl'. I will let you know if I like the book once I finish reading it. I don't know if anyone else has read the book as there are some negative reviews on Amazon regaring this book saying it is not as good as her other books.

I love this website! At least we can communicate with people who love Georgette Heyer.

Regards,

Anna

Hey Louisa

I've only read Sprig Muslin out of the 5 books you've listed so I am genuinely biased in saying you should read it next.

How's your reading of "The Unknown Ajax" going?You'll fall in love with Hugo soon...you'll see why.

Bye

Buongiorno to everybody. I'm grateful to this site's creator, G.Heyer is really worth to be known. I'm a total fan of Heyer's novels since the 1st I read as a teen; and like many of u have read and re-read all of her novels. I've often regretted that critics did not value Heyer as much as she deserves, for her wit, her perfect prose, her historical competence. My favourites: THESE OLD SHADES (absolutely a jewel), RELUCTANT WIDOW, CONVENIENT MARRIAGE, DEVIL'S CUB, VENETIA. Ciao

Hi!

Thankyou Kirsty. I'll read The Foundling next! I'm going to keep plowing on through The Unknown Ajax until I reach the last 100 pages, then I'm sure I'll be pleased. :)

Also, has anyone else noticed that she likes to give some of her male characters 'large girths'?

Louisa.

Hi Louisa,
The best part of the unknown ajax is the last 100 pages or so as this is where the story comes together, out of those five i would recommend the foundling or the spanish bride to read next as they are both very good.
I have found that charity shops are usually good places to find heyer novels.

Hello Melody and Anna,

I haven't read Devil's Cub yet, because I get my books from the library, and most of her books are usually already borrowed, so I can't borrow them. It's very sad. Soon, though, I'm going to the local second-hand bookshop, so I'll try and get some Georgette Heyer books from there. Hopefully, I will be able to.

I am currently reading the Unknown Ajax, and finding it a bit slow, but I'm sure it'll get better. I've also got 5 other books on loan: The Foundling, A Civil Contract, Charity Girl, Sprig Muslin and The Spanish Bride. Which one is your favourite out of the 5, so I can know which one to read next?

Sincerely,

Louisa.

Hey Louisa

Thanks for responding. I've read The Corinthian and found Pen really entertaining. She is vey funny. I love Richard too. Don't you just enjoy the way Georgette adds life to her characters. It's like I know them personally , as if they really exist phyically. Have you read Devil's Cub the sequel to These Old Shades? I haven't yet but plan to do soon?

Bye...

Mel

Hello Melody

I read These Old Shades a week or so ago, and I absolutely loved it as well! It was such a great book, and made me love Georgette's writing even more. All the books I've read of hers have been amazing. I am currently reading The Corinthian, and am enjoying it hugely. :)

See ya,

Louisa.

Hi Kirsty!

Thanks for getting back to me. I guess you are right a book is always different than a movie. But all the same I would like very much to see 'An Infamous Army' as a movie for example! It will be famous I bet if is produced, directed and played with the right people.

Regards,

Anna
