You are going to love this book, whether you are a pre-teen/teen boy or a grandmother, or anyone in-between. You will have the opportunity to have a "bird's-eye" view of the French Revolution.
This is my first Henty book. I am a young grandmother, and I enjoyed this so much I then purchased antoerh of Henty's books, "Wulf, the Saxon, a Story of the Norman Invasion", another excellent choice. Each gives one a feeling of "being there" as history unfolds. The characters are believable in the old-school way and make one understand parts of history from a far more interesting angle than some dusty old textbooks! I can't wait to acquire more Henty books; he does not disappoint. By reading Henty on the Kindle, I can tap a word I am unfamiliar with, see its definition, and quickly move on with the story without missing too much of a beat. As a retired homeschool parent, I see opportunities throughout the text to strengthen vocabulary, discuss the causes and effects of happenings in history, and draw parallels to our current generation. I was very surprised to see quite of bit of 21st Century America thinking in the middle of 18th Century Revolutionary France; it did not set well with me...
Believable characters and plausible storyline from a ronantic girl's perspective! Yes, I would recommend this book, to boys AND girls, and even their adult counterparts. Enjoy!
