characters A Great and Terrible Beauty Free read A Great and Terrible Beauty 106 Libba Bray ´ 6 Free download It's 1895 and after the suicide of her mother 16 year old Gemma Doyle is shipped off from. I don t know why for so long I just assumed I wouldn t like historical fiction it s not as if I don t love history I picked it for one of my A levels in college But I guess it s just one of those genres that sounds tedious and you imagine it to be all oppressed sexuality and prim and properness Diana Gabaldon forever changed my mind with her oversexed and aggressive depiction of history and it was only a matter of time before I looked towards other works of historical fictionThis book is both everything I expected and also everything I didn t expect It s set for the most part in a boarding school for educating girls in the art of being ladies or in other words wives The girls were expected to be reserved polite and most importantly beautiful This I was prepared for I was also prepared for the customs superstitions and blatant sexism of the times However it never occurred to me that this novel would be simply a 19th century take on a modern school There s gossiping bitchiness and bullying of those who are different in this case from a lower classIt s a good dose of chick lit as well as a historical book And that s before we ve even gotten to the whole magicfantasy aspect This novel completely transcends genres and does it well I didn t see the whole other realm mysticality thing coming but I loved it The gypsies are awesome as well we have crazy gypsies fake fortune telling I speak with dead people gypsies sexy gypsies don t believe the rumours 19th century girls didn t just lie back and think of England And that s another thing I liked the exploration of the girls sexualities behind closed doors It may not be the most reliable source the book was written in modern times but it s easy to imagine that beneath the surface of Victorian society s repressed sexuality girls probably did talk about having thousands of men Earls Dukes Barons Princes Anyway lost myself on a smutty tangent I was saying that I liked the idea of weaving fantasy into history I m all for spicing up times gone byI didn t give it 5 stars because it wasn t uite up there with my other 5 star rated books I liked it I loved the many different elements that made the novel hard to categorise and I liked the characters I always like it when things aren t just as simple as she s a bitch and she s a freak in any kind of genre I liked how even though Gemma lost her mother at the beginning the relationship was still built up throughout I liked that the protagonist wasn t a pushover even so because the novel setting was in a very sexist society And I love anything with dreams andor visions
