Good morning to all of you.
This november 2008, after 30 years collecting GH’s novels (they were difficult to find in Italy , I bought some of them in English when I visited London), Ive got in possession of the last one missing novel and I’ve all of the 34 Regency/Georgian now ! at last! Yippie!!!!
Now I am going to read her Mystery, I apprehend they are 12.

I THINK MANY MANY INDIAN WOMEN LOVE READING GEORGETTE HEYER. I first dicovered her when i was 12. Im 42 now and can still pull out one of her romances from my book shelf and feel wonderful reading it. When i read it now i almost am able to recite the lines and the words before i come to it. what joy and pleasure i get even after all these years. i love phoebe, vidal, sylvester, the kids in her books " i want my button", the valets and the villans. Myleast favourite however is these old shades. The duke of avon is her most complex character,i think. The satanas from black moth is very different from the monseiur of devils cub. but i liked him least in these old shades.the hero of toll gete and sleepy richard from masqueraders, the lovelorn swain from convenient marriage - where did she find them all?!

Hi Melody!

Although I love these old shades, I think the best book to be made movie is 'An Infamous Army' the reason is the Waterloo war which will attract all males to go and watch it. I loved the book immensly although I can say the same thing for all her books.

Can you imagine Cotillion as a movie? It will be sooooooooooooo funny :)

Hey all

I agree with you that These Old Shades would make an excellent movie. I'd also like The Convenient Marriage to be turned into a movie. I just read it and couldn't put it down. It's brilliant!! Every emotion is stimulated reading that book...wow!

GH is magnificent she writes with such great insight into human emotions and the history of that era.

If they do think of making one of her books into a movie I think they would have to employ all of us to be directors. We won't make a mistake in the way the characters should be portrayed!!

Bye all
Thumbs Up

Have just found this site, done the quiz a few times which reinforced just how big a part GH books have played in my reading life. From a teenager to a (young)51 year old, whenever I want a light, witty, romantic read, with historical accuracy thrown in, GH is the choice. Personal favourites Frederica, Infamous Army, Venetia.

Hello! Wave

I read Charity Girl and did not like it. Definitely not one of my favorites.

I finished The Unknown Ajax, and was very pleased with it. It all came together very nicely, and I really did love Hugh! It is definitely worth persevering through the slow start for the end. :)

I borrowed some more GH novels from the library, Cotillion amongst many others. I am reading Cotillion currently and thoroughly enjoying it!

I agree with the others that there needs to be movies made of her books. Some of them would be amazing with a great cast and a good screenplay. I'd love to see These Old Shades on the big screen. We need to suggest it to people.

I am so glad that I stumbled across GH. Her novels have brought me so many pleasurable hours immersed in her books. :)

Louisa.

Hi Julie
Ive found an old message left by a Caroline from Surrey who said had “sent a message to the BBC to ask if they have ever considered adapting these for TV or film, they would work on the screen”.
What about THESE OLD SHADES ? but it will be difficult to find actors who could equal the Justin or Rupert or Leonie we have in our own minds !...

Hi Iam also a fan of Georgette Heyer, her books are full of historical detail you feel your there.
They are witty and funny. I would like to know why they hav'nt made any more movies. Seeing how they have done Jane Austin to death Georgette Heyer is more interesting and fun.

To Melody: The Convenient Marriage is surely lovely, funny, extremely well-written; it possesses most of Heyer’s trademarks. I hope you’ll enjoy it

To Angie: I think you are perfectly right, GH secondary characters are often unforgettable. I remember sir Roland Pommeroy or Drelincourt or Francis Cheviot or many others. GH has a fantastic ability to sculpt and chisel a character (and its personality) even with one sentence!

P.S. I love this PumpRoom, you all are so passionate and knowledgeable with GH’s work!

Do you think Cherry is really the heroine of Charity Girl? I think she is sort of a plot device, like the beautiful girl in The Foundling, or Charis Merriville in Frederica. Henrietta Silverdale, the woman the hero eventually marries, is the heroine, and she is one of the sensible sort. If you remember, in Sylvester, the least interesting characters in Phoebe's novel were the hero and heroine, because she had done no more than endow them with all the virtues. And so it is with Georgette Heyer; the secondary characters are the most interesting, like those great older women in Jane Austen. (That's why I like Cotillion, it's all secondary characters. No one is a Nonesuch or a paragon and they are mostly funny. The scene of Dolph running away with Kitty and Hannah is wonderful.)

I agree with you Simonetta, the silly insipid female character of Charity Girl does make the book imperfact when you compare the saucy character of Venetia or Leonie in the other GH books.

I'm not familiar with the other female characters you've mentioned.I have not read the books yet.I plan to start reading The Convenient Marriage on monday.

From reviewes I've read it is a light-hearted, passionate book? How did you find the book?

Bye

Mmhh.. Charity Girl is not that perfect in my opinion.. stereotype characters, cliché, there's grotesque more than humour. Heyer’s women are usually divided into 2 categories: the silly innocent lolita, and the intelligent cultured sensible girl. Maybe I don’t love Charity Girl because I appreciate most the latter, i.e. Mary from Devil’sCub or Elinor from ReluctantWidow. What do you think about?

Hi Angie, Melody and Kirsty!

Thank you for your comments about Charity Girl. I am in the process of reading it and I hope I can finish it soon so I can add my thoughts.

There is another writer who writes good regencies, but it seems she is not writing any more. Her name is Marian Devon.Her books are hard to find but they are good reads.

I totally relate with you all and regarding this irritating captcha code. I have to try it so many times.

Have a great day all of you! I love this website :)
