The Scarlet Pimpernel  - Emmuska Orczy

This was fun, but also quite melodramatic. The love story had all the feels, sometimes a bit too much for my liking, especially towards the end of the book.


And as for Marguerite:


She is supposed to be the most clever woman in England and yet she succumbs to an idiotic human being, who makes all the wrong decisions because she is anxious about her husband. And she pretty much turned into a damsel in distress towards the end of the book and I really didn´t like the development of her character in this specific direction.
