    Free E–pub (Restoration) by Rose Tremain I 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

First paragraph Look at me Without my periwig I am an affront to neatness My hair what is left of it is the colour of sand and wiry as hogs bristles my ears are of uneven size my forehead is splattered with freckles my nose which of course my wig can t conceal however low I wear it is unceremoniously flat as if I had been hit at birthAnd I knew I was going to like thisThe prose tends to be uite formal Tremain has written this in such a way to help the reader feel with the times the 17th Century She is not as obscure as often Shakespeare was and her spelling is 100% better This is Merrie Olde England with its bawdiness and drunkenness and perhaps a serving wench or two At least one review says it is close to historically accurate though with an occasional error I am not at all familiar with the time period so I could just go with what was on the page Another review considers this erotic but don t you believe itThis is just my type of book being largely a character study I don t know about you but I am not uite the same person I was 10 years ago As I learn as life happens I grow and change with that growth So too does Robert Merivel grow and change over the course of this novel I enjoyed the beginning with its humor as much as later that was seriousI will definitely be reading of Rose Tremain The strong beginning and superb ending have me sliding this into my list of 5 star reads though the middle sections might just be a good uality 4 stars

I found this book uite intriguing The character of Robert Merivel is sympathetic and does a believable character arc changing from a shallow person into a thoughtful physician Tremain does a great job with her historical research creating a nuanced seventeenh century world My favorite parts are Merivel s medical challenges and discoveries One of my pet peeves in historical fiction is that the heroheroine is far medically advanced than they should be like for instance knowing all about penicillin bread mold way before its discovery That doesn t happen in this book Tremain sticks with the time period and brings to life what it would be like to be a physician during this period In fact that s what I loved the most about this book and if Restoration had mostly been about Merivel s growth as a doctor I would have given it five starsUnfortunately it s not The middle of the book drags when Merivel is sent into exile and he spends his time decorating his house in putrid colors making ridiculous fur coats and chasing a woman who loathes him My belief is Tremain was inspired by The Diary of Samuel Pepys They are much alike in many ways The problem with this though is that while Pepys diary is a valuable historical document it doesn t really have a proper end because Pepys just uit writing There s no real climax no real plot or cohesive tale and Restoration kind of has that feel to it as well The real arc of the story is Merivel s character change but I m not uite sure that s a strong plot I suppose Merivel goes full circle and comes away with an enlightened point of view but it doesn t have the true feeling of a full storyConseuently I ve given it four stars
