Ok, I know it's the end of May, but I have now finished Pursued and thought that I might as well still write my thoughts about it. By the way, I hope you are all enjoying The Scarlet Pimpernel!
I would have to agree with pretty much everything that Hannah said about the book. But all in all, it was still a fun read. Kind of one of those no-brainers you can just pick up whenever for entertainment. It kept me guessing until the end, and I just kept reading so that I could find out how it was all going to play out. I had read several books by this same author back when I was in middle school and high school, so I kind of knew what to expect from this book. I think I would have enjoyed it more back then, but that's ok. Like I said, it was still fun. . . .
It drove me crazy not knowing who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. I found myself suspecting everyone and trusting no one. Especially when it came to Maggie's new-found family. It all got a little confusing with all the police and detectives thrown in there as well. I couldn't keep track of their names and which ones could be trusted. Maybe I wasn't properly imagining things in my head, but it didn't make sense how Llewellyn (By the way, how in the world do you pronounce that name?) escaped right through their fingers so many times. Was he that elusive?
I would love to go to England and visit all those places though and learn about the history and architecture. And I definitely wouldn't mind finding a place like Dragonwyck that I could explore! (I am a sucker for secret passageways.) That would be awesome. Mandy and I were talking, and we figured that I have over a year to find a job and save up so that I can go visit while she and Wes are living there. Sound like a good plan to me! Anyone else want to join?
