Read & download Restoration Restoration Download Ì 106 And idleness enthusiastically enjoying the women and wine of the vibrant Restoration age But when he’s called on to serve the king in an unusual role he transgresses the one law that he is for. You 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 times the reader may think that there is no real plot and yet Restoration continues to be a page turner as it feels like one is actually living the story while reading it Further Merivel s character arc is perfect not too fast not too slow and yet subtle enough to be realistic Tremain s prose and literary language in Restoration is also top notch Restoration features all of the star ualities of classic literature along with historical accuracy and character dialogue which feels of the times The reader will have to be reminded that Tremain was not actually alive during Charles II s reignAll of the characters in Restoration have such magnetic chemistry with each other that the story becomes riveting and yet the ratio of coverage each character portrays in relation to others is never overdone Restoration also features uniue storytelling where Merivel speaks almost directly to the reader Although this can be perceived as cheesy it works in Restoration as everything seems to Tremain doesn t focus too much attention on describing the setting of the scenes and yet each creates a vivid picture Simply put Restoration has a uniue draw while being written exceptionally well Also noteworthy are the multi layered events Instead of merely being a part of the plot line each occurrence in the story signifies a deeper lessonmeaning adding substance to the novel and thought provoking philosophical ideas Additionally moving and compelling is Merivel being a protagonist and his own antagonist There is nothing relatable than being your own worst enemyThe second half of Restoration is much different from the first with Tremain focusing on the story than of the deeper character study of the first half Although this doesn t significantly decrease the merit of Restoration it does somewhat change the impact of the writingAlthough subjective I found the descriptions of Merivel s dreamsnightmares to be tedious and not necessary to the plot Not only do these not add depth but Tremain over utilizes the tactic Part two brings about a slackening of pace within the novel and a less inviting plot although Merivel is still likable However the views and angles of historical events such as the Plague and the Great Fire of London are notably different than other historical fiction novels in a good way The conclusion is weaker than expected but Restoration does come full circle and Tremain answers open ended uestions Restoration is uniue well written and incorporates a compelling story with a terrific literary character Tremain s work is suggested for those readers interested in historical fiction or specifically of seventeenth century England

Read & download Restoration Restoration Download Ì 106 Robert Merivel son of a glove maker and an aspiring physician finds his fortunes transformed when he is given a position at the court of King Charles II Merivel slips easily into a life of luxury. I have the same problem and pleasures with this historical novel set during the reign of Charles II as I do with the author s Music and SilenceAt once pleasingly rich but with annoying inaccuracies like the uaker studying at an English university Anglicans only back then These grated on me at one time A less irritable reader however might be moved to accept that this is less a historical novel and a fantastical novel with a dreamlike atmosphere in placesThe hero lives in a world of illusion and delusion at the apex of which is his love for Charles II I note how in German this novel is called The King s Fool which is appropriate The hero is sent down through the world and has to remake himself A process that involves seeing and experiencing the insanity of existence from a variety of points of view departing a fantasy existence in a Norfolk manor house as fake husband to one of Charles II s mistressesview spoiler a twist perhaps on normal for Norfolk hide spoiler
