Fantastic classic !
There is high intrigue! Daring do, a touch of courage and bravado, all mixed up in a pleasurable read. I recommend it.
I absolutely LOVE this book! It teaches sooo much french history!
I have gotten a countless amount of vocabulary from it and it IS understandable! (I'm only twelve and I can understand it!) Orczy
Has such a great description, and I adore the ever-mystifying fop Sir. Percy! I highly recommend the book although it will not make sense to teens under the age of probably 16 (because of the challenging vocabulary). overall, the scarlet pimpernel brings action, mystery, love, and history into a beloved classic.
