] Is anyone here a fan of Georgette Heyer?
] ] If not, I would really advise her books. They are mainly set in the same time period ans JA, and are quite wonderfully funny. Venetia, Sylvester, Devil's Cub and The Unknown Ajax are especially great!
] ] So, anyone here likes her?
] I love Georgette Heyer for a fast fun read! I love all the ones you mentioned, plus False Colours, The Nonesuch, and The Reluctant Widow are other favorites! I would really like to read and discuss The Devils Cub or Sylvester together
False Colors is one of my favorites also, since it's the one that got me hooked on Heyer. The scene with Clare's mother, the one that comes to extort money from Kit always has me ROTFLOL. And so does Lady Denville's tricking poor Sir Bonamy into marriage.
What about Faro's Daughter-it's got to have the best hero-heroine matches. I read in on Greyhound and the lady sitting next to me kept staring at me: "What was this strange girl doing giggling to herself"
And do you like These Old Shades or Friday's Child?
I better stop or I'll go on forever.
And I totally love the discussion idea. How can we arrange it?
