5.0 su 5 stelle Mesmerizing Trilogy 10 dicembre 2014
Di carmen - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Titles: The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine Bonaparte, Tales of Passion, Tales of Woe and The Last Great Dance on Earth.

Author: Sandra Gulland

Published by Harper Collins Publishers, Inc.

Backup References: Goodreads, Amazon

Theme: Historical Novel

Written in the form of fictional diaries, Sandra Gulland manages to enthral the reader throughout three difficult-to-put-down books. From a feminine perspective, she starts by describing Rose's (Josephine) as a young girl in Martinica and takes you from her somewhat humble roots to her acquiring grace, elegance and diplomatic skills, her unhappy first marriage, the joy of having two children, her suffering during the Terror, her lovers, her agreeing to marry the "rude Corsican", the intimacy inside their bedroom, Napoleon's rise to power, their learning royal protocol, the complexities of war, politics, endless intrigues, betrayal, his exile and her death.

Credible. Extremely well researched. Fast paced. Three page turning history novels worth cherishing.
5.0 su 5 stelle Loved All 3 of These Books! 18 aprile 2015

I loved all the Ms Gulland's books about Josephine. I knew very little about Josephine other than her connection to Napoleon before reading these books, I quickly became engrossed in her personal journey during very difficult times before, during and after the turmoil in France and Europe. I would highly recommend to read all three books to understand her as empress, mother, wife, friend, business woman and her stuggles with the role assigned to women during her lifetime. The trilogy is well written and though you pick up a lot of historical awareness of the time, it is an easy and engrossing read and history presented in a dry format. (Malmaison is definitely on our itinerary for France!)
5.0 su 5 stelle Great end to a great series 6 luglio 2014

Loooove this series! Gulland did not simmer out on the third book of the series. I couldn't wait to see how this series ended, but at the same time wanted it to go on forever. Her characters are so rich and complex and real. Her descriptions made me feel like I was right there in the action with the characters. I just loved the character of Josephine! I loved how it was written in diary entries that didn't feel like fake "dear diary" entries. It made it a fast read (I despise long chapters - somehow long chapters feel like work bc I have to read in small bits of time where I can sneak it in).

The whole series seemed to transport me to another world. Just wonderful, beautiful. Loved it all.

5.0 su 5 stelle Well Done Sandra Gulland--An Outstanding Conclusion!!! 22 giugno 2006
Di Lynne P. Caldwell - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I can't express how much I loved this wonderful novel. The most accurate adjective I can think of would be 'interesting'. This book was soooo interesting. Gulland's attention to detail is absolutely meticulous. She used over 400 sources in the writing of this trilogy. I learned so much--not only about Napoleon and Josephine, but also of other historical figures of that time. I also found the daily life of the aristocracy not only fascinating but also exhausting.

Napoleon Bonaparte and Josephine Beauharnais are some of the most intriguing characters in history. Their story is so compelling and Gulland does a wonderful job of presenting it. Her 'Josephine' trilogy tells the story of Marie-Josephe-Rose Tascher (Beauharnais Bonaparte) who was born on the French Caribbean island of Martinique in 1763. She died, as she was still known, as the Empress Josephine at her beloved Malmaison in Paris in 1814. THE LAST GREAT DANCE ON EARTH begins in March 1800 at the Tuileries Palace in Paris and ends at her death. But, Gulland has a special treat for her readers. She ties up all the loose ends by telling us what happens to all the characters in her novel. I loved that! In fact, I was taking a tour a couple of weeks ago in St. Augustine, Florida and the guide told us that this is where Napoleon Bonaparte's brother came to....I now know that it was Jerome. The author also has a chronology with detailed accounts and dates of events in the last fourteen years of Josephine's life. Gulland also used actual letters of the pair in this book. And again, the pages are peppered with footnotes that add credence to this story.

In book three we're treated to more of the deep and abiding friendship of Josephine and Napoleon. The love they had for each other is legendary. Napoleon was a wonderful father to Hortense and Eugene and they also adored him. But Josephine had to put up with her horrid in-laws, their jealousy and constant designs of destroying her marriage, their lies and the constant undermining--geesh, she was more patient than I could have been. They eventually succeeded. Despite going through horrible and archaic treatments for infertility, Josephine could not conceive. As we all know, Napoleon divorced her in order to gain an heir. Even then, they continued their friendship and love.

I have been mesmerized with Napoleon and Josephine since visiting the Lourve for the first time as a college freshman and falling in love with David's "The Coronation of Napoleon." Then, after visiting the famous, albeit headless statue of the former Empress at her birthplace in Martinique, my curiosity became insatiable. We learned that Josephine's head was cut off because she influenced her husband to reinstate slavery. I was hoping to read an explanation in these novels but it was never mentioned (although Martinico is mentioned quite often). Which comes to another point: Gulland mentions that researching the lives of Napoleon and Josephine is addictive; I've already bought two more books, maybe I'll find the answer to my question!

I'm almost 40 and I'm new to the reading world, although I know how to read well and I've always been a keener with good grades in english somehow I managed to go through school without reading a single novel, I just didn't read it and that really brought my grade down. I've never - until recently read novels or much of anything else... When I began to read earlier this year- the feeling was euphoric. It was the discovery of this treasure I was surrounded with and never knew... Now I love, love, love to read. I've collected so many books I'm sure it'll take a few years to get through. I started shallow splashing around with light reads such as Sophie Kinsella, Emily Griffin and soon dove in deep and gravitated toward historical fiction. I enjoyed this trilogy a lot. Although I know Josephine was going to die in the end, it didn't stop me from crying (something I try to avoid if I can)... Any suggestions for other interesting reads, please let me know. I suggest this set, it was wonderfully written... As well I enjoyed Ken Follet's "pillars of the earth" I have't yet started the follow up "a world without end" I also enjoyed Phillipa Gregory's books... Until I read Sandra's books of Josephine I knew little of Napoleon. It has sparked my curiosity and I research online to learn more about Napoleon, Josephine and the others. Enjoy.
