The French Revolution is at the height of its fury. Daily, hundreds of aristocratic heads fall from the guillotine. Emotions run high, and anyone suspected of sympathy toward the nobility is in mortal danger. Only one man is daring enough to lead a small band against popular opinion - the Scarlet Pimpernel. Using masterful disguises and clever strategies, the Scarlet Pimpernel smuggles noblemen and women from France to safety in England. His success is a thorn in the side of the Revolution. As he vanishes from each escapade, he leaves no trace behind except an image of the colorful flower that is his emblem. The Scarlet Pimpernel must be stopped at all costs. But who is he?

This enduring classic is filled with wonderful layers of intrigue and dashing courage. As the cunning hero, and the beautiful woman who loves him, move toward a final victory, the quickened pace is enhanced by Steven Crossley's dramatic narration.

    " The Scarlet Pimpernel is a very clever book. The book follows Marguerite who gets into a predicament where she can either save her brother Armand or the Scarlet Pimpernel. The book feels almost like a play, with each chapter having a different setting and the ending is very witty. Although eventually the identity of the Scarlet Pimpernel is eventually found out, I found it more exciting not knowing while reading than knowing. The only downside to the book is sometimes it drags on when discussing the emotions of Marguerite, and eventually you're like, "I get it, you're scared and worried and nervous, now get on with it!" Other than that this is a very witty book with a terrific ending. "

    " This is another one of my, "How did I make it almost 40 years without reading this classic" books. Having seen the movie (with Jane Seymour) years ago, I knew I would love the story and it did not disappoint. Glad to have finally read it. "

    " There are significant cultural barriers to really getting into this book, but it was gripping and fun, all the same. "
