This is the best book I ve read all year It is the best book I have read for m Seminal novels have a curious tendency of being very much unlike the genres they inspire It s something I ve explored before, inThe Lord of the Ringsfantasy ,The Virginianwestern , andThe Moonstonemystery , and Scaramouche definitely resembles the latter two in how they stray from what we might expect.
Firstly, we have an unusually introspective, complex protagonist Much less the dashing hero, we are shown a doubting cynic, a recluse who sees the cruel inequality of the world and does his best to avoid it Yet it is a world he must live in, and so he finds himself thrust again and again into complications from which he strives to extricate himself.
The second similarity with those other formative works is the quirky, meandering plot It is certainly not what we would expect we bear witness to only two swordfights in the book, o I wavered between four and five stars on this one, but I totally have to go with the five It s just that awesome I was actually a little surprised at how much I loved this book I mean, I love swashbucklers and historical fiction Dumas p re is my man, but the only other Sabatini novel I ve read, Venetian Masque, I found to be a little underwhelming so I did not expect this from Sabatini Speaking of Dumas, I almost think that Scaramouche can be placed in the same company as that master s great work The Count of Monte Cristo, no small praise from me It doesn t quite have the same level of intricate plotting as the latter, and I will never give pride of place to any but Monsieur le Comte, but it is still an awesome read filled with exciting up From the Robe to the Buskin, and now from the buskin to the Sword What will be the end of you I wonder It is always a gamble to re read your childhood favourites Lately I v had a couple of bad hits while trying to revoke the passion towards a few books that I worshipped as a child Scaramouche, is one of those titles Without going into the details of the book, I am happy to conclude that after than a decade I have a better understanding of this book This is a story of swashbuckling adventure, revenge, passion, betrayal, resolution and realisation of Andre Louis Moreau, set in the background of the French countryside and the cities alike on the brink dismantling the centuries old seigneurial system with tenets of liberty, equality and fraternity The last time I read the book the audacity acts of valour of our Hero, appeared fasci Andre Louis Moreau is the Scaramouche of fame I am delighted with this knowledge, as it finally helps me to solve one of the many mysteries of Queen But than that, I am absolutely delighted with the work in general Sabatini s evocation of the heady, tense, uncertain, firecracker days before the beginning of the French Revolution of 1789 is beautifully done I classified this as fantasy because I believe that it is painted brightly enough to sear into my imagination as much as any Middle Earth would do This is a swashbuckling adventure novel, make absolutely no mistake about that There s a lot swashing than there is actual buckling, but it is very entertaining swashing about, so I don t take issue with it However, the sweeping, majesticall At the dawn of the French Revolution, when Aristocrats are about to tumble down into the toxic precipice, there lived in the village of Gavrillac, Brittany, with his Godfather, Andre Louis Moreau A young lawyer of unknown origin, now, but earlier when the infant Andre Louis was brought there, Quentin de Kercadiou, Lord of that settlement, announces that he is the Godfather , the people are amused Obviously the child is a product of an ill fated romance, and Monsieur Kercadiou, is the father, which the boy also believes the child is well educated , sent to Paris, after the village school The Lord, gruff, but loving, wears unfashionable clothes, like a member of the 3rd estate, is not talking, Aline an orphan, stays in the home of her uncle Quentin, too The two cousins, raised together become very close, M.
Moreau best friend is Philippe de Vilmorin, a frequent Scaramouche was a marvellous surprise I d never read Sabatini before as I harboured the prejudice that an adventure novel written in 1922 would feel clich , out of date, and ultimately disposable Instead, Scaramouche surprised me at every turn.
The character of Andr Louis Moreau has qualities both admirable and execrable We admire his daring, eloquence, and instinctive sense of justice that transforms his outrage over the killing of his friend by a nobleman into a life of danger, even as we can recognize that he fails to truly believe the ideals he espouses on behalf of that same dead friend Andr Louis also has a cruel streak that allows him to ignore the suffering of those who he believes have wronged him.
Interestingly, this is where one of the aspects of classic novels that modern audiences generally dislike myself in particular the omniscient narrator plays an important role The unnam
