    Paperback ¶ Restoration Kindle Ë restoration download, 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 himself with food drink and revelry and soon becomes a sort of court jester Merivel exults in the king's fondness for his fool and thinks he's been even pampered when the king gives

    Paperback ¶ Restoration Kindle Ë restoration download, Restoration ePUBYou may be familiar with the Restoration and Charles II Or maybe not Regardless Rose Tremain gives this historical period double meaning in her novel “Restoration” “Restoration” is a novel which can’t be ignored as it is simply “alive” with sounds emotions and colors immediately jumping from Tremain’s pages the second the reader opens the book Saying that “Restoration” has a heartbeat is putting it mildly This lively novel is supplemented by the main character of Robert Merivel who has disgusting flaws and yet is so relatable that he is an extremely likable character Tremain successfully turns a character which would be hated in any other novel into a lovable one “Restoration” is not a typical novel but is of a character study following Merivel At

    Paperback ¶ Restoration Kindle Ë restoration download, 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 and Merivel the fool Merivel gets an attractive young wife albeit just for show and the freedom to take as many other mistresses that may please him to his bed He and his “wife” are given the means to live in style and a splendid estate in Norfolk to decorate as they may so wish Norfolk is distant from the king’s residence in London For the king this is simply a way to have access to than one woman without them getting in each other's

    Paperback ¶ Restoration Kindle Ë restoration download, 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

    Paperback ¶ Restoration Kindle Ë restoration download, 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 sequel to this Merivel A Man of his Time which was published over 20 years after this book
