Comments Mam'zelle Guillotine

  • Rachael Kosinski

    Wonderful, as always. This is the fourth or fifth SP book I've read, and I've figured out the pattern: (1) Everyone tells Percy not to go. (2) Percy goes. (3) Someone, 95% of the time Chauvelin, devises a really excellently diabolical plan to catch him (4) Marguerite and Sir Andrew worry and collude together (5) shady things happen and (5) Even though the night is black and things are super tense, Percy laughs and evades whatever the problem is and everything is happy. I have no problem with thi [...]

    Although Mam'zelle Guillotine was a good adventure story, it wasn't quite up to the standard of the other Scarlet Pimpernel books. The conclusion to the book was weak and there were many repeated details, which became a little boring. Still, the scenes with Percy were marvellous, and Lady Blakeney featured much more prominently than normal. 3 1/2 stars.

This is proably one of my favorites so far, Sir Percy is excellent, his love for Marguerite not quite as overshadowed by his love of honor as precviously, and the Gang of the Scarlet Pimpernel as endearing as ever. A lovely read and highly reccomended for any fan of that great, elusive adventurerThe Scarlet Pimpernel(view spoiler)[I'm not sure [...]

  • Stephanie

    Great book, though I am a bit mad at Sir Percy!


  • Katie

    I liked this one as much as the first book. So far my favorites are this book, The first book (The Scarlet Pimpernel) and El Dorado. On to the next one!
