Swordsman, soldier, poet...and possessor of the biggest nose in all of France! Cyrano de Bergerac was all this and more, for behind his grotesque face beat the heart of a lover. And, being Cyrano, who could he fall in love with but the most beautiful woman in Paris?From this conflict of nose versus heart springs one of the most uproarious, tender, funny, painful, and action-packed stories of all time - a tale that has its roots in truth, for Cyrano de Bergerac really existed.

Working from Edmond Rostand's beloved play, Geraldine McCaughrean has transformed the tale into muscular prose that shimmers with turns of phrase Cyrano himself would have admired, offering us a thrilling new way to experience the power and passion, the humor and heartbreak, of one of the most beloved stories of all time.

    " I felt like there were parts that just didn't fit in with the time period and it just seemed awkward most of the time. "

    " I had always heard of Cyrano but had never read about him. It was a quick, no-thinking required story. "

    " An easy read. Not super exciting...except I really wanted to see his nose. Also, the end was predictable. There wasn't a lot t hat really surprised me. "

    " A short YA book. Enjoyable and can be read in 2-3 hours. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsty | 3/31/2013

    " this is one of the most beautiful novels I've ever read. I was in tears by the end, and I haven't cried over a book in years. it's a short book - it only took me a hour or so to read - but so much beauty is crammed into it. forget it's a YA book, and just read it. I can't recommend this enough. "

    " Just a retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac. Was hoping for some twists and turns but there were none. I really liked the writing, though. "

    " Cute, easy read. I have never read the REAL Cyrano story, I might try to find it. This is a YA book. "

    " full-cast audiobook. The story is good for teaching teens all the tropes of a true romance: poetry, drama and doomed love ending in death (twice!) "
