    MOBI Sedition PDFEPUB #9734; #240; uc0info #240; sedition pdf, Sedition KindleThis is a wonderfully sly and mischievous book which takes the bare bones of a nineteenth century novel and gives them an audacious makeover A group of mercantile families in 1794 London are keen to marry off their five daughters and so decide to have them give a musical concert to put them on public display and catch husbands But with various plots afoot the plan goes outrageously wrongGrant writes wonderfully but this is a darker in places read than some of the reviews indicate At the same time she takes the central conceit of nineteenth century fiction the marriage of girls and boldly overturns it The social and literary commentary is subtle but unmistakably there and the book is imbued with a spirit of transgression from the background of the French Revolution to the ultimate fate of the girlsSo this book take

    MOBI Sedition PDFEPUB #9734; #240; uc0info #240; sedition pdf, Sedition KindleWell this is a weird bookI can't really think of anything else I've read that I would compare it to It's internally consistent but the tone is a strange mix of humor tragedy and prurienceFive young women all the daughters of social climbers Their parents concoct a scheme to have the girls present a musical concert playing the newfangled pianoforte in order to lure titled husbands To this end a piano is acquired and a music master hired However due to the piano seller's offense at how the sale went down he concocts a scheme to have the piano teacher seduce and deflower all five girls and thus ruin the families' grand plans As it turns out however not all five of the girls actually need deflowering and this scheme is not the only one that comes into play the tables may be t

    MOBI Sedition PDFEPUB #9734; #240; uc0info #240; sedition pdf, Sedition KindleCleverly written but darkish satire on English social manners in which a French music master is bribed into attempting to seduce five young pupils before the concert at which they are to be presented to their future husbands Wicked humor alternates with pathos and a gothic intensity of emotion Very hard to categorize but intriguing and original

    MOBI Sedition PDFEPUB #9734; #240; uc0info #240; sedition pdf, Sedition KindleA rather silly but enjoyable enough bit of historic erotica here this book is trying to channel all the bawdy goodness of great classics like Fanny Hill Dangerous Liasions and Vanity Fair with a dash of The Crimson Petal thrown in for good measure I don't think it manages the brilliance of any of these works but it does create a story that is worth a few hours reading The story follows a group of girls out to catch themselves titled husbands money is not an issue but breeding will be so a plot is hatched to train the girls up on the newly fashionable pianoforte and get them all to perform for prospective husbands This concert will demonstrate their desirability and culture as well as their other attractive qualities Unfortunatey a resentful piano maker has a plot of his own to ruin the chances of each one of these girls in comes a dashing music teacher and the story unfolds from there For a modern piece the sex scenes which are frequent are oddly coy this is despite there bein

    MOBI Sedition PDFEPUB #9734; #240; uc0info #240; sedition pdf, Sedition KindleI would never have read Sedition if it weren't on the Desmond Elliott longlist it just didn't sound my kind of thing And now I've read it I'm not sure what sort of a thing it is It's not a satire or a farce as it's just not funny and it's definitely not sexy I'm the last person who would say that a novel should be instantly classifiable and I usually enjoy something a bit different but this is just decidedly odd There are too many similar characters with five sets of businessmen wives and daughters the main characters aside I found it impossible to keep track of who was who Then there is the plot which is nothing short of ludicrousIn summary I didn't dislike it as much as I expected to but I didn't think it was anything special either At least I

    MOBI Sedition PDFEPUB #9734; #240; uc0info #240; sedition pdf, Sedition KindleThis has got to be one of the strangest and most unsettling books I've ever read In the edgy offbeat historical fiction genre that I so love I would compare it most to Fingersmith by Sarah Waters but this one is far disquieting and not near as satisfying This is hard to rate I loved aspects of it and the writing is sharp and wonderful but at the same time it's left a bit of a bad taste in m
