The Scarlet Pimpernel – Baroness Emmuska Orczy

The Scarlet Pimpernel is a classic adventure and love story set within the upheaval of the French Revolution. Stories abound of the mysterious Scarlett Pimpernel who comes in various disguises (sometimes very humorous!) to rescue French aristocrats from capture and death at the guillotine, and spirit them away to safety in England. Meanwhile, though, back in England Lady Blakeney despairs of her rich and fashionable husband who constantly acts like a complete fool.

    An exciting and thrilling classic that explores the world of the French Revolution. A mystery, daring English man, by the name Scarlet Pimpernel, rescues French from the hands of the guillotine (head chopper).I recommend it to those who like classics.

    I thought that this book was very interesting because of the mysterious plot. I enjoyed reading this classic because it had a wide range of language, from ‘Old English’ to English colloquialism and even some French. The Scarlet Pimpernel and his followers must rescue the aristocrats of France while avoiding the deadly knife of the guillotine and almost certain capture by the angry French people.

    This is a great book with a great story line and a great twist. This book starts out as a really boring book but after a while it turns into a great book. With danger and huge consequences. It is a great book. I enjoyed this book really well because of the tension and danger
