I think this was the final book in the series??? (not sure about that) and it was generally entertaining, although it did tread some familiar ground. I enjoyed the explanation of the brand and what it meant, and found this, the winding up of Robespierre's time as leader of the Reign of Terror, an...more

Originally published on my blog here in May 2000.

Though better than I Will Repay, The Triumph of the Scarlet Pimpernel is far inferior to The Scarlet Pimpernel. The cloying romantic side of I Will Repay is omitted, yet the story is less interesting and less exciting than the first novel. Like the...more

This episode of the Pimpernel series is more closely tied in to actual historical events than usual, and includes more than the average number of tricky situations for our hero and his wife. I think some of what I most enjoy about the series, though, is the interactions between Percy, Marguerite,...more

Loved Orczy's wonderful sense of adventure. I can't but marvel at this aristo author who could have been another Austen, but chose to be Dumas.

This is another in the series of books about th Scarlet Pimpernel. It is one of the best in the series about the revolution and the horrible treatment of not only the aristocracy but anyone against the leaders and many lost their heads for no reason other than they were said to be against the lea...more

This wasn't my favorite of the Scarlet Pimpernel series. A bit repetitive, and I actually guessed Sir Percy's plan as it was unfolding, which doesn't happen in every Scarlet Pimpernel book.

Still, it was an epic finale to the series. After everything that happens, it is easy to leave this book fe...more

This is the fourth Pimpernel book I've read. I love the Scarlet Pimpernel but I just couldn't get into this one. The first 120 or so pages were difficult to get through. The Scarlet Pimpernel doesn't appear very much. There's also little of Marguerite and Chauvelin. It also incorporates a lot mor...more

[These notes were made in 1984:]. I remember this one vividly from my childhood as the story where Percy is branded with an "M" on his forearm. It's marginally more implausible than some of the others (involving, as it does, a "double" in the coal-heaver Rateau), but the final confrontation with...more

So this is the end of the adventures of the Scarlet Pimpernel for now. I do believe that this book is intended to be the last. I did like it. It was well written. It has a lot more history in it than most of the other books. I'd read this one with the others just because it is the end. So to cap...more
