When the guillotine dropped uickly remorselessly and often there arose a mysterious Englishman who crossed the channel to rescue the French Aristocrats mostly innocent victims he called himself The Scarlet Pimpernel Named after a modest British flower this person organized a band of twenty high born men he like the flower was unpretentious Their daring deeds thrilled the world Antoine Fouuier Tinville director of the French government wants to capture these enemies Offers 5000 francs for the head of the unknown leader but the brilliant Pimpernel has supernatural powers they sayThe Terror was just beginning Sir Percy Blakeney is a rather silly unintelligent fop everyone thought so Percy travels in High Society his friend is the dissolute Prince of Wales similar men are his young followers and copy all Blakeney s latest clothes he wears Recite his witty words the riches man in England was surprisingly the secret chief of this group of daredevils in perilous FranceHaving recently married a French actress Marguerite St Just the most beautiful smart woman in the country All her friends were stunned she had many suitors love of money undoubtedly was the reason A hard precarious childhood Marguerite and her older brother Armand endured as they lost their parents at an early age Unusually close they depended on each other to survive but still how can she lower herself to such a nitwit dandy With an irritating laugh Her many friends can t accept itIn Paris the barricades surround the city everyone leaving is thoroughly searched Their carts barrels animals all that goes by particularly the frightened citizens the fleeing aristocrats can t get out An old ugly woman approaches the western barricades the cart will not be searched her grandson has the plague she saysThe guards back away and the vehicle slowly passes into the countryside never to be seen again Yes The Scarlet Pimpernel is the old woman and some nobles are hidden in the wagon Sir Percy is a master of disguise it will save his life numerous times The Committee of Safety the notorious Revolutionary French government sends an agent to England to find out the identity of this Scarlet Pimpernel Such a silly name Citizen Chauvelin the spy is also an accredited official of the bloody French regime and a former friend of Lady Blakeney When her brave brother or foolish Armand working for her husband in France to help some Aristocrats escape is apprehended The Day Dream Sir Percy s yacht which has been used often to get them across the sea back to freedom England needs to sail in the opposite direction But now the ruthless Chauvelin threatens to kill Armand if Lady Blakeney doesn t find out who is the Scarlet PimpernelAnd she is in the dark that her despised idiot of a husband is that person Will Marguerite have to choose between her husband and her beloved brother one must die Appearances are not always reality as this book shows A man wears a mask for the world but inside he is a totally different animal

Okay I read this for exactly two reasons one I thought this book was on The List it s not and two the Scarlet Pimpernel is the inspiration for the Bruce WayneBatman dichotomy and I am a giant dork For a book about a secret team of English nobleman working to rescue French nobles from the scary revolutionists who want them dead this is a surprisingly unexciting book The pace is fast and there s plenty of spying and blackmailing and races against time but there isn t a single fistfight swordfight gunfight or slapping fight in the whole book There s sort of a chase scene at the end but the pursued party is in a slow moving cart and the pursuer is on foot There s plenty of drama and intrigue and excitement but just one duel would have been nice Luckily the characters are all great Sir Percy in addition to being a precursor to Bruce Wayne s vigilante disguised as idiot rich boy act also reminded me of Lord Peter Wimsey another fan of the Badass Disguised as Fop method which was awesome His archenemy is Chauvelin basically the French version of Hans Landa in Inglorious Basterds and everybody was generally so cool that I forgot about how amazingly not scary a name like Scarlet Pimpernel is The true hero of this story surprisingly is not the Scarlet Pimpernel He mostly stays in the background while people talk about him and throughout the whole book we never really get to see him in action Instead we see almost everything through the eyes of Sir Percy s wife Marguerite who despite everything manages to be awesome The issue I had with Marguerite was that she s repeatedly referred to as the cleverest woman in Europe but god damn is she stupid Sir Percy might as well have been dancing around wearing a sign that read Hello I am secretly the Scarlet Pimpernel and she wouldn t figure it out At one point Marguerite snoops around in Percy s study and sees the following objects maps of the English and French coastlines on the walls and a small ring with a scarlet pimpernel flower engraved on it Marguerite stares blindly at these objects and is like But what does it all mean The major flaw in the PercyMarguerite marriage was a lack of communication First we find out that Marguerite had a French family arrested by accident before she was married and never told Percy about it even after she found out that she d made a mistake Then when Chauvelin tells Marguerite that she has to work as a spy for him or he ll kill her brother Marguerite doesn t tell her husband what s going on until after she sells out the Pimpernel without knowing who he is I mean Jesus Also he s in disguise for the last part of the book and it was so fucking obvious which character was actually Percy in disguise I wanted to throw the book at the wallBut fortunately this all ends with Marguerite becoming awesome racing against the clock to save her husband and defeat Chauvelin and the ending between Percy and Marguerite is surprisingly sweet and very satisfying that got a bit rambly didn t it Anyway in conclusion a fun espionage story even if it s not as swashbuckling as I expected and everyone except the Pimpernel is an idiot I ll be looking up the movie version soon and will likely prefer it to the book

    (EPUB) [The Scarlet Pimpernel] ★★★★★★★★★☆910Ah classic How I had always imagined that the classics are only for those who are born brought up spoon fed in and potty trained in English and how wrong was I to think that they are out of the reach of people like me who had only subnormal command over the English language Among many other popular authors of the classic era Emmuska Orczy was a name much bandied about for her
