Recensione

`By casting her narrative in the form of a first-person journal, Gulland invests it with vividness and immediacy, so that one sometimes forgets it is a historical novel, and reads it with a real sense of surprise at each development` Times Metro

'Straightforward and likeable re-telling of the life of Josephine Buonaparte is laced with ribbons and period detail' The Independent

'Packed with captivating historical detail' The Daily Telegraph

'Richly detailed historical novel' Nottingham Evening Post

Full of those colourful details and encounters that often make historical fiction more appealing than its austere sister, real History' Kirkus Reviews

'The legendary Josephine, wife and love of Napoleon, recounts the events in her life. It is easy to escape into Josephine's world and not want to return' Margaret George, author of The Memoirs of Cleopatra

'What a joy! Historical fiction with equal measures heart, soul and intellect. With complete authority and searing intimacy Ms Gulland has captured and delivered to us the voice of one of history's most fascinating women' Robin Maxwell, author of The Queen's Bastard

'In this wonderfully crafted novel, Gulland pulls back the veil of history to reveal an extraordinary life' The Canada Post

5.0 su 5 stelle It was definitely not love at first sight 8 maggio 2016
Di Lydia Fitz - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Josephine Bonaparte was never called by that name until she married Napoleon Bonaparte, who gave her the name "Josephine." Her real name was Rose Tascher and later Beauharnais when she married Alexandre Beauharnais at age 17. She actually had three distinctively different lives, one growing up in Martinique and her first years in France as a new bride and very unequipped to deal with the high French society she found herself in. Then her second life deals with the French Revolution and what she and all the others in her circle had to do to survive it. How she and her children survived is almost miraculous. Her husband did not. Her third life began when she met Napoleon Bonaparte. It was definitely not love at first sight, but he was persistent. During her en tire life, she was surrounded by the effects of war, and went from poverty to Empress with many ups and more downs in-between. Since this book was written as a journal, it is a very personal journey. I loved the details about everyday life during this time, and I learned much more about the French Revolution than I had known before, although I have read many books on the subject of this tragic time. I have read all three books, and I think I may read all three again in the future.

The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. by Sandra Gulland is the first installment in a trilogy about Josephine Bonaparte. The first installment is fascinating, magnetic even, but so many things happen in the book that it feels long, longer than its four hundred-ish pages. The title couldn’t have been different; it pays homage not to a life but to the journey of a woman of modest beginnings who became extraordinary during the times and suffering she endured.

I acknowledge that since the book more or less started with a prophecy I was desperate to see it play out, so much so that when the book became serious—too much so describing the events during The Reign of Terror and Rose and her friends’ incarceration—I felt tempted to leave it aside. It was a history lesson let me tell you, and not the pretty kind. It was ugly and messy and plain terrifying. The Many Lives…feels slow at times, particularly in the parts I have talked about, but it’s so meticulously researched and narrated in first voice –through fictionalized journal entries and family letters-- that it lends a more human perspective to the historical events and figures Gulland describes. The result is historical fiction at its best.

I really liked that Gulland divided Josephine B.’s life in more or less three stages: the early years until she meets Napoleon, the marriage to Napoleon and what happens after. I really liked Josephine, or rather, Rose. Is it wrong that I also liked the Napoleon we got to know here?

In summary, Sandra Gulland’s The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. is vast in scope and scale and meant to be savored as one of the best that historical fiction can offer.

I have finished all three of Ms Gulland's books about Josephine. I started with this one, of course, but kept wishing the pace would pick up to the time involving Napoleon. But really, this book sets the stage for who Josephine became and the reasons she took on the challenges she did throughout her entire life. My advice is to not skip this book. I am glad I kept reading as it provides a very compelling foundation to her story well told in the next two books! Loved them!!!

The early years of Josephine Bonaparte are fascinating in their description of what it was like to be a young woman growing up in the midst of the French revolution. The details of every day life are fascinating.

This book is written as a journal, and takes you from Rose's (Josephine) life as a teenager on Martinique, to her marriage to Napolean Bonaparte in France. I love to be drawn in to a story, and I wasn't sure that with the diary styling that would happen. I will say that I have ordered both of the other books in the series though; so by the end of the book I was hooked. It is a very dark period of France's history with the revolution, the imprisonments and beheadings.
