    " Georgette Heyer is brilliant! She wound this regency story around the Battle of Waterloo, and instead of being bored by the war parts, I found it very exciting & intriguing. I even got on Wickipedia to learn more about the famous battle. Her amount of detail is nothing short of incredible, and very intimidating, too - but if you just let it flow around you & take in the basic facts you can enjoy it completely. In true Heyer style, the characters are thoroughly well drawn, and you become immersed in the time period with the authentic language. I listened to the audio book, and I loved the voice. It was very engaging, and she was amazing with all the different characters & languages, including English, French, Scot & German. A very great read! "

    " I loved this book. Of course, keep in mind that I am a serious fan/student of the Napoleonic era. This is an in depth look at the Battle of Waterloo. I recommend this book at work to men who read the Richard Sharpe novels of Bernard Cornwell and the Jack Aubrey novels of Patrick O'Brian. The romance is not the central element of the story, and what there is, is relatively low key. In other words, not enough to make a guy think he's reading a romance. There is a lot of battle tactics here. It is a good read for regency romance readers who would like a little more info on the battle that figures greatly in those novels. "

    " Having just read a serious history of Waterloo, I found this historical fiction of the battle entertaining. It gave some life and personality to the people I'd read about, although I realize that may or may not reflect their actual personalities. "

    " This book is not about the "romance" but rather is a very detailed and authentic story of the battle of Waterloo. Oh to be sure, there is romance, and of course, dresses. But unlike most of the Regency period romances Heyer wrote, this book is mostly about the people swept up in the times by the very bloody war that was a part of everyday life. It focuses specifically on life in Brussels in the months leading up to Waterloo and then the battle itself. I think my husband would like this book much better than I did. "

    " This is so familiar that I am sure I've already read this, probably a very long time ago. History is so interesting, and I always enjoy picturing places as they were. Having visited this area, I was doubly interested. "

    " First Heyer novel I disliked. Let's just say that scenes of generals strategizing and gruesome fighting just don't fit Heyer's style. "

    " So we had to read a Georgette Heyer book for our bookclub and this was the only one they had at the library. I just couldn't get into it. I got about 80 pages in and didn't have the desire to keep going. Too much about the war that it bored me. "

    " War and Peace meets Downton Abbey meets Gone with the Wind with Barbara and Judith making a more interesting wartime buddy duo than Scarlett and Melanie. "

    " boring! too much about a battle. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Juli | 3/12/2012

    " There was so much dialogue at the begining of the book that it would have been better as a play. It was so hard to keep track of all the characters and relationships that I couldn't get into the story. I finally gave up on this one. "

    " the war description was not at all clear. too much information was assumed to be known to the reader. the characters were good though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa | 11/5/2010

    " Lengthy; didn't care for the over-detail of references, which made it tedious to read. It's a lot of book for a wee bit of actual plot. "

    " An excellent and meticulously researched play-by-play account of the battle of Waterloo, interspersed with the love story of Captain Charles Audley (one of Wellington's staff officers) and the notorious widow, Lady Barbara Childe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 3/25/2010

    " A bit more history than story. A lot more information than I wanted- interesting for Georgette Heyer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peachy | 2/18/2010

    " In trying to understand Waterloo, I found this book helpful in a very painless way. Heyer has a light writing style, even given the quantity of information she gives us in this 'romantic' novel. Her research is solid, though not perfect; no wonder its been so well respected for so many years. "
