    One thought on “The Cloister and the Hearth, Volume Three”

    1. Charles Reade is decidedly a back number Victorian novelist now, but in his day his popularity rivaled that of Wilkie Collins and sometimes even Charles Dickens More than something of a head case, Reade fancied himself a sort of scientific Zolaesque realist, whose sensational fictional exposes of burning social problems prison abuses, unsafe shipping conditions, private mental asylums, trade union violence, etc were based on voluminous, meticulous and matter of fact research They were no such th [...]

    2. I gave this book four stars because it is an amazing classic, but I would give it five stars if it weren t such a difficult read It is also very long and very old which means that the style of writing takes some getting used to But it is VERY romantic, which I love I read this as a teenager and throughout the years I still go through and re read my favorite romantic parts Some of this book can be a little boring and slow paced, but alot of classics are that way I don t like that Gerard and Marga [...]

    3.

    4. My favourite author is Charles Dickens, but just Dicken s high quality out put is only challenged by Charles Reade He wasn t a prolific author, but his story of two lovers is in my humble opinion one of the greatest love stories ever written The title is unfortunate, as it seems a bit pious and homely which can be off putting to many people It is also a fantastic boys own adventure full of adventure and nail biting fight and battle scenes This is my third reading of it It would make a great tv m [...]

    5. This is by far my favorite book because of the story and Reade s masterful exploration of the struggle between devotion to God and the love of a woman at a time when those were in opposition.

    6. The book written by Charles Reade, who considered himself a playwright, is full of interesting moments, little vignettes that are little plays Charming.

    7. I reread this book I liked the descriptions of customs from the 1400 s and the colloquialisms It is a worthwhile book.

    8. I can usually read a book in a day or two, but this one took forever Not that it s bad it s just really, really slow and long, but a great back up for when I didn t have anything else to read.
