mirror a way to see themselves in fiction when needed While The Gentleman s Guide to Vice and Virtue isn t perfect as a representation of how an pileptic feels ven now it is a masterclass For that alone it deserves and gets 5 starsMoving on to brilliance I m all for bisexuality in fiction and the problematic protagonist and narrator is bisexual with his main interest being male The whole story is his redemptive arc But his starting point the insulting sexist rake is a bit much Though very much of the time I guess His shining lights are his devo. Rous Thingauthor Mackenzi LeeSimon vs the Homo Sapiens Agendameets the 1700sHenry Monty Montague doesnt care that his roguish passions are far from suitable for the gentleman he was born to be But as Monty Wish You Were Here: An Essential Guide to Your Favorite Music Scenes—from Punk to Indie and Everything in Between embarks on his grand tour of Europe his uests for pleasure and vice are in danger of coming to annd Not only does his father The Day Christ Was Born expect him to take over the familysstate upon his return but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion PercySo Monty vows to make this yearlong scapade. A beautiful romp through 18th century Europe Simultaneously hilarious heartbreaking it thankfully all comes together happily by the nd The moral notes do come across a little strong at times a black man a gay man a woman walk into a bar it sounds like the beginning of a horrible non joke but I d rather have an author who includes these characters than be stuck reading yet another story about perfect privileged white peopleOnly complaint is around the main character s lack of agency There were a bunch of times when I really wanted Monty to sit up and act But I can understand how that didn t really fit into his characterAll up a solid 4 stars solid recommendation uick witted sweet funny one moment and heart wrenching the next One of the best books I ve read this year I loved this book so much First up the humour is wicked I laughed out loud so many times I lost count I adored the relationship between Monty and Percy SO MUCH So much I have a hangover and wish I could see what happened to them next Their characters were well developed and I thought the arcs were well The Seventh Witch executed and I felt for all the characters The sister was brilliant as a secondary character tooThe reason this is 4 stars instead of 5 is for a couple of reasons I think it was a little slow in places I also thought thending was rushed and would have liked a bit of an And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake epilogue The climax of the main relationship while resolved doesn t feel 100% satisfactory because it s resolved and then the booknds abruptly There s not Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama's Dream of the Socialist States of America enough closure for meI love the world building and historical setting I thought some of the political and racial issues in the book were well done though they made me slightly uncomfortable because of how they played out Though these would be true to thatraI thought the The Pocket Wife exploration of the character s sexuality was brilliant Particularly brilliant given thera and setting of the novelThis book is so close to 5 stars I adored it and would highly recommend this to anyone after a good uality story This was a fun rollicking story that had the potential to be great Unfortunately it just fell short which I believe was due in large part to the The Color of Our Sky editing Things like tense changes sentence fragments and jarring word choicesg water scraping a thread of hair tc prevented me from immersing myself in the story The pacing was a bit one note too so the final showdown was no tense than the first It was also obvious that the author was from the US the proper British dialogue was peppered with American slang which stuck out a mileDespite these complaints it was an njoyable read overall I wish the Obsession editor had been thorough but it s worth a read if younjoy the genre Well written adventure story with some captivating themes Monty was possibly a bit too flawed for too long for my personal taste His only draw card was that I was supposed to feel sorry for him and I did but I wanted from him I guess Felicity was awesome though Looking forward to reading about her It s never a good sign when a few days after finishing a book I m struggling to remember what it was about in order to do it justice in a review The Gentleman s Guide to Vice and Virtue is one of those books unfortunately It s Cabaret: A Roman Riddle entertainingnough and I njoyed reading it but it also suffered from a main character who is to me anyway USUALLY ANNOYING THAN CHARMING AND A annoying than charming and a to throw verything but the kitchen sink in to the plot just in caseThe basic premise is that our main character Monty is about to depart on his Grand Tour in the way that all well heeled young men of the Regency period were wont to do in his case accompanied by his best friend and unreuited love interest Percy They ve also been given the task of depositing Monty s sister at a finishing school on the way and given strict instructions about what they can and can t do Likewise at the nd of their time together Percy is supposed to be going off to university in Holland and Monty is already bemoaning that separationAfter Monty follows his dick into trouble in Paris as well as proving himself to be than a little light fingered trouble starts to follow them The trio nd up separated from their chaperone and on the run as well as a few things about Percy coming into the open This is where for me the plot starts to go off the rails a bit and the author really should have considered not throwing twelve plot ideas into the book just in bit and the author really should have considered not throwing twelve plot ideas into the book just in almost gave this book 3 stars instead of 4 because of Monty who is pretty much insufferable most of the time It s rescued by the character of Felicity who has all the common sense her brother lacks while Percy still remains a bit two dimensional at times Anyway apparently there s another book which follows on from this one but from Felicity s point of view The Lady s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy due out later in 2018 By Jove this book was goodI had no idea what to All Roads Lead Home expect from The Gentleman s Guide to Vice and Virtuexcept that I d seen so many people raving about how great it wasThis book uite.

Tion to his loved ones his humour the goblin and honestly his abused past His past is a huge part of who he is why he is the way he is and sadly something that people might relate to and see another way Percy is also relatable a half caste what is the correct term for that pileptic orphan though to an ntirely different set of people and he serves as a reminder to be yourself than be better Monty and Percy are two sides of the same coin or tarot card as is the case During the course of the book there is a tarot reading in which Monty gets the King of Cups reversed The reader gives both the straight interpretation and the reversed interpretation the former describes Percy the later Monty The primary female character is the intelligent independent feminist Felicity The Lady s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy the next book in the series is hers and looks just as intriguing Together the three characters work spectacularly well they are diverse and will all appeal to different peopleAs for the story well the idea of a grand tour appeals to me I m going to be honest I didn t see the nding coming I guess the signs were there but they aren t screaming at you It is a tremendous amount of fun conveying all the The Mephisto Threat (Paul Tallis enjoyment that could be had by a young adult on their grand tour The writing is witty and paced well never falling into a rut It is also uotable because t is so funny and relatable Monty and Percy have a conversation fairlyarly on that deals with Monty s abuse his father and the impact it is having on him that 3 page conversation is possibly one of my favourite passages in the book It is honest and brutal and the core of their whole deal It is fantastic writing The sectioning by location was a very clever way to break the book up at over 500 pages it isn t small but the sections make targeted reading asy The inclusion of brief notes on the grand tour politics pilepsy race relations in ighteenth century Europe and ueer culture was intelligent helpfulI m going to refer to this in public as my purple pride or team purple book from now on Purple is the colour of pilepsy awareness and has Just Cause extremely strong meaning in the bisexual community Gentleman s Guide flies the flag for both camps without fear and tells a young audience it is okay you aren t broken there are othersIt is soasy to see why The Gentleman s Guide to Vice and Virtue has had so much praise it is well written historical fiction for young adults dealing with a medical condition and diverse sexuality This is one for the pileptics to read and njoy you will see something of yourself and for anyone who wants to try to understand There is definitely something here for historical fiction fans too Ms Lee has done a wonderful job with her research while making it so readable I felt this book didn t start well and I wondered if I d made a bad choice but it uickly improved into an action packed adventure Set in the arly 1700 s this novel follows two highborn young men best friends I think of about 18 20 years of age and the younger sister of one of them on a Grand Tour of Europe as they did in that This book was verything that I hoped it would be and I read it alongside listening to the audiobook and let me tell you Christian Coulson can talk to me with that gorgeous voice of his all day and I will never grow tired of itThe story itself was amazing An adventure A romance It h Let s be honest this is very much my kind of book I d been xcited for this book to come out for months and I was absolutely terrified that the reality would nd up a disappointment I couldn t have been wrong if anything this book xceeded ven my impossibly high xpectations I gotta admit that I m a complete sucker for fun historical fiction featuring an LGBT protagonist and frankly there s just not nough of it But this novel is many things it s fun but it s serious it s wild but it s thoughtful it s sweet but it s dangerous Monty our protagonist is at times a bit of an idiot but never does he stop being utterly Fiesta Moon endearingven without seeing the dimples one can almost sense their presence The stablished relationship with Percy and the developments it makes throughout the book are kicky heel good and the discussion of racial and sexuality issues at the times shows Lee s background in history and affinity for research And despite the male centric cast the strong and smart Felicity is a affinity for research And despite the male centric cast the strong and smart Felicity is a refreshing female character the strong and smart Felicity is a wonderfully refreshing female character come out of a book set in the 18th century Reading this I often found myself turning pages far too late into the night unaware of the time passing as I was so ngrossed in it I would say the only issue I had with it was the fact that Monty s complete ignorance of the stigmas Percy faced as a person of colour was never really dealt with or resolved but perhaps that was the point to highlight their differences despite from the same lite class Unsure short this is now one of my absolute favourite books and I think I m going to go and read it again Like right now. One last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome But when one of Montys reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt it calls into uestion verything he knows including his relationship with the boy he adoresWitty dazzling and intriguing at very turn The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue is an irresistible romp that xplores the undeniably fine lines between friendship and loveDon't miss Felicity's adventures in The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy the highly anticipated seuel.
