Inspired by all the favourable comments that I've heard about Georgette Heyer on this board, I decided to head over to the library and borrow some of her novels.
I was surprised when the computer catalog turned up so many titles... she certainly is a prolific author!
Anyways, so far, I've read Arabella (novel) and Pistols for Two (short stories). I thought they were delightful and lots of fun to read.
The only thing that I noted was that, so far, a lot of her heroines seem to be very young and naive girls who end up with older, rich men who are fed up with the "normal" sophisticated women in society. This was interesting the first few times around but now it is getting a little repetitive. How come only the naive girls get the cool husbands?! not fair! ;-)
I was just wondering, are a lot of her stories based on this type of plot or has it just been due to my choice of novels that I have ended up reading a lot of this type?
