    ePUB Restoration MOBI î ä akvarieprofilen.co ä restoration pdf, Restoration ePUBSteeped in the voices and eccentricities of the age of Charles the second Restoration A Novel of Seventeenth Century England is wonderful I felt like I had been transported back in time to all the disagreeable muck and smells and ribaldry of the 1660s At first I thought this was going to be a comic slice of life rendition of a young man's Robert Merivel rise as a sycophant of the king There is humour in this yes but also much sadness In part one it depicts the newly made physician Merivel's lucky break in being asked to treat the king's spaniel who is sick Merivel knows the only way to get ahead in England of this time is to please the king Inadvertently through no help from the doctor the dog does survive Merivel becomes the king's veterinarian While at court Merivel indulges him

    ePUB Restoration MOBI î ä akvarieprofilen.co ä restoration pdf, Restoration ePUBI have the same problem and pleasures with this historical novel set during the reign of Charles II as I do with the author's Music and SilenceAt once pleasingly rich but with annoying inaccuracies like the uaker studying at an English university Anglicans only back then These grated on me at one time A less irritable reader however might be moved to accept that this is less a historical novel and a fantastical novel with a dreamlike atmosphere in placesThe hero lives in a world of illusion and delusion at the apex of which is his love for Charles II I note how in German this novel is called The King's Fool which is appropriate The hero is sent down through the world and has to remake himself A process that involves seeing and experiencing the insanity of existence from a variety of points of view departing a fantasy existence in a Norfolk manor house as fake husband to one of Charles II's mistressesview spoiler a twist perhaps on 'normal for Norfolk' hi

    ePUB Restoration MOBI î ä akvarieprofilen.co ä restoration pdf, Restoration ePUBA really enjoyable Restoration farce with a great deal of heart Robert Merivel is a would be physician and son of a glove maker to the king He lives for pleasure and is something of a rake and does not take his medical studies too seriously He comes to the attention of the king and for a while he is part of the court and plays the fool The king decides to marry him to one of his mistresses This involves going to live on an estate in the country and much partying and debauchery ensuedMerivel eventually falls and loses everything He ends up working in a uaker madhouse as a physician in the Fens He also moves back to London and experiences the plague of 1665 and the fire of 1666 Lots of gaps there to avoid spoilersIt is very funny beautifully written and most of all there is real character development; not just for Merivel but also for the excellent supporting cast Although there is a touch of Tom Jones about it; the descriptions of madness are moving and perceptiveTh

    ePUB Restoration MOBI î ä akvarieprofilen.co ä restoration pdf, Restoration ePUBThis is a story about Robert Merivel At the beginning of the story he is an aspiring physician The setting is Restoration England this being when the English Scottish and Irish monarchies were restored under the Stuart King Charles II in 1660 Merivel comes to be married to the king's mistress but the hitch is that he may not bed her He is certainly not to fall in love with her That’s the deal made between the king

    ePUB Restoration MOBI î ä akvarieprofilen.co ä restoration pdf, Restoration ePUBTremain’s book is written in first person which doesn’t usually work for me but I really enjoyed this The book follows the misadventures of Robert Merivel who is really immature and even a little thick at times despite being a rather gifted physician In his pursuit of pleasures finery and a courtier lifestyle at Whitehall he loses sight if indeed he ever had it of the important things in life Merivel is at the beginning of the story and indeed in several episodes throughout a very weak fellow Some reviewers stated that Merivel doesn’t change and I would have to disagree – the reduced circumstances he lives through do impact him although he perhaps isn’t able to see it for himself He loves people he shouldn’t and doesn’t love those he should – a problem that faces many people I think SCL rating 45

    ePUB Restoration MOBI î ä akvarieprofilen.co ä restoration pdf, Restoration ePUBThis is such an enjoyable historical fiction book set in the 17th Century during the reign of King Charles II The protagonist Merivel is likable and relatable despite making some bad decisions and I really enjoyed following the complex relationship between him and the King and the difficult situations Merivel finds himself in due to his affiliation with royalty The book covers a number of interesting themes such as marriage friendship definitions of insanity and moral duty I am very keen to read the seuel to this Merivel A Man of his Time which was published over 20 years after this book
