Hello Wonderful People!!!!
I was supposed to post this yesterday, but finally here with it on Monday. I was able to complete my very first book for 2019. And that is,
The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice And Virtue
by Mackenzi Lee
Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.
But as Monty embarks on his Grand Tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.
Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.
I enjoyed this book so very much. It was an anticipated read for me, and was also in my TBR for sometime. Finally I was able to complete it within this weeks, and I am so glad that I did.
The story was not a very long and confusing one. The story is being narrated in Monty’s point of view. But I must say, that I was not a fan of him. The character I enjoyed the most was, Felicity, for her feminism. She speaks a great deal about the society at that era. Even though, she is interested in studying and gaining a proper education, females were never allowed to.
I must highlight about the character, Percy, who is being racially harassed, and ill-treated for being an epilepsy. I enjoyed the author’s note at the end of the story, which gives detailed information about the background of the story.
The story is filled with humor, love and rich language. It was rather a fun read and would recommend it.
I do hope you enjoyed my review, and do not forget to share your ideas and thoughts abojut this book as well as my post.
Until next post,
