I went in expecting more undercover shenanigans, but it's mostly Marguerite's side of the story. The majority of the book deals with her inner life, with a little action towards the end. All in all it's a good book, probably better for people who don't know the twist of the story or are unfamiliar with the secret identity trope. ( )

I've never really liked the classical stories because they feel so naive. They're almost always black-and-white and simple to the core. It's this straightforward nature that I like, however, in The Scarlet Pimpernel.

This book is said to have served as an inspiration to the Batman character, and it's quite easy to see why. But I'm not going to dwell on that. More importantly, this is a book on romance and love. It's about trusting someone and putting your faith in that person. It's about falling in love with someone for their charm and personality. It's about grasping on to that little bit of truth no matter how dire the situation becomes.

If you haven't figured it out by now, I really liked the book. :-p ( )

I just cannot comprehend this.

During France’s Reign of Terror, a disguised Englishman whisks innocent nobles away from the thirsty maw of the guillotine. French authorities will stop at nothing to capture the daring hero, who leaves a calling card with the mark of a scarlet pimpernel at the scene of all his escapades.

One of my go-to guilty pleasures for years was The Pink Carnation series by Lauren Willig. I’m really not a romance reader, and they are most definitely romances, but the witty dialog, fantastic characters, Napoleonic setting, and light action/suspense kept me going back for all twelve books. I knew they were influenced by The Scarlet Pimpernel but I never made the time to seek out that book. When I was choosing a list of titles to read for the Classics Club, I knew I had to correct that oversight.

I can see the influence here but I much prefer The Pink Carnation books.

Where Willig’s characters are witty and smart, Orczy’s characters are overwrought, secretive, and sometimes entirely too slow on the draw. What really drove me crazy though is that every bit of dialog started with an exclamation, most frequently “La!” “Lud!” or “Zounds!” I felt like I was reading an episode of Batman from the ’60s!

The main character, in my opinion, isn’t so much The Scarlet Pimpernel himself, but rather Marguerite Blakeney. She’s a Frenchwoman who married an Englishman, Sir Percy Blakeney. She’s widely regarded as “the smartest woman in Europe” but I don’t know why. Identities seemed pretty clear to me from the start but she just bumbles around in ignorance, causing all kinds of chaos. She committed a pretty unforgiveable act while in France and her feelings are hurt because the family she ruined won’t have anything to do with her. However, blackmail puts her in an impossible position now that she’s in England. Her choice triggers the bulk of the action. To give credit where it’s due, she does everything in her power to correct her most recent mistake.

Still, the exploits and derring-do of The Scarlet Pimpernel are a lot of fun. I had to admire his clever tricks and his boldness. I saw through the disguises but at this point, masked avengers are a well-established trope. As I understand it, Baroness Orczy broke new ground when she wrote this novel. I can see how readers in the past would have loved the twists, turns, and impossible escapes but it felt a bit predictable and melodramatic to me. I may or may not read other books in the series in the future but I am glad I read this one. ( )

This was a story my Mother read/told me in my childhood. One of her favorites. Only a faded outline of the story remained in memory but name Scarlet Pimpernal was always there.

The story pulled me into it once I started and there was no stopping until it was over. It's a great story with suspense, romance and action set during the "reign of terror" in France. ( )

A surging, seething, murmuring crowd of beings that are human only in name, for to the eye and ear they seem naught but savage creatures, animated by vile passions and by the lust of vengeance and of hate.
