    Steeped in the voices and eccentricities of the age of Charles the second, Restoration A Novel of Seventeenth Century England is wonderful I felt like I had been transported back in time to all the disagreeable muck and smells and ribaldry of the 1660s At first I thought this was going to be a comic, slice of life rendition of a young man s Robert Merivel rise as a sycophant of the king There is humour in this, yes, but

    I have the same problem and pleasures with this historical novel set during the reign of Charles II as I do with the author s Music and Silence.At once pleasingly rich but with annoying inaccuracies like the Quaker studying at an English university Anglicans only back then These grated on me at one time A less irritable reader however might be moved to accept that this is less a historical novel anda fantastical novel, with a d

    A really enjoyable Restoration farce with a great deal of heart Robert Merivel is a would be physician and son of a glove maker to the king He lives for pleasure and is something of a rake and does not take his medical studies too seriously He comes to the attention of the king and for a while he is part of the court and plays the fool The king decides to marry him to one of his mistresses This involves going to live on an estate in th

    I found this book quite intriguing The character of Robert Merivel is sympathetic and does a believable character arc, changing from a shallow person into a thoughtful physician Tremain does a great job with her historical research, creating a nuanced seventeenh century world My favorite parts are Merivel s medical challenges and discoveries One of my pet peeves in historical fiction is that the hero heroine is farmedically advanced than they

    First paragraph Look at me Without my periwig, I am an affront to neatness My hair what is left of it is the colour of sand and wiry as hogs bristles my ears are of uneven size my forehead is splattered with freckles my nose, which of course my wig can t conceal, however low I wear it, is unceremoniously flat, as if I had been hit at birth.And I knew I was going to like this.The prose tends to be quite formal Tremain has written this in such a way to

    You may be familiar with the Restoration and Charles II Or maybe not Regardless, Rose Tremain gives this historical period double meaning in her novel, Restoration Restoration is a novel which can t be ignored as it is simply alive with sounds, emotions, and colors immediately jumping from Tremain s pages the second the reader opens the book Saying that Restoration has a heartbeat is putting it mildly This lively novel is supplemented by the main character of

    This is a story about Robert Merivel At the beginning of the story he is an aspiring physician The setting is Restoration England, this being when the English, Scottish and Irish monarchies were restored under the Stuart, King Charles II, in 1660 Merivel comes to be married to the king s mistress, but the hitch is that he may not bed her He is certainly not to fall in love with her That s the deal made between the king and Merivel the fool Merivel gets an attractive

    Utterly charming, poignant and beautifully written After the brilliance of The Gustav Sonata 2016 , Sacred Country 1992 which has rocketed into the list of my all time favourite books , The Darkness Of Wallis Simpson 2005 which is a collection of her short stories, Restoration 1989 was next up on my Rose Tremain a thon It s another winner utterly charming There are few writersversatile than Rose Tremain This enjoyable Restoration farce is as always brilliantly writ Utterly c

    Tremain s book is written in first person, which doesn t usually work for me, but I really enjoyed this The book follows the misadventures of Robert Merivel, who is really immature and even a little thick at times, despite being a rather gifted physician In his pursuit of pleasures, finery, and a courtier lifestyle at Whitehall, he loses sight if indeed he ever had it of the important things in life Merivel is, at the beginning of the story and indeed in several episodes throughout

    This is one of my favourite books of all time The main character, Merivel, is a person ahead of his time in nearly everything he attempts When he decides to paint, it is in a Fauvist style in the 1660 s He winds up in trouble and much misunderstood, and his inherent selfishness and immaturity don t helpuntil he figures out ways towards a personal Restoration The first time I read this, I cried I was so moved by the way he transforms A very hopeful read.
