    One thought on “Fleur”

    1. "There'll be some kind of treaty between the sovereigns, and everyone will go home. It won't make any difference in the end. That's the sad thing about it all - that when it comes right down to it, it's all for nothing." This is the second book in Cynthia Harrod-Eagle's Kirov trilogy and begins in 1851 as the Great Exhibition opens in London. Fleur Hamilton is the daughter of an eccentric botanist who prefers to wander the world looking for the rarest plants and letting his children be raised by [...]

    2. Having recently read and very much enjoyed Anna, I had high hopes for its sequel Fleur, but ended up disappointed.The first half of the book is very slow-paced. Set in England in 1851, we follow Fleur and a whole array of characters, most of which are superfluous to the eventual story. I wish this part had been shorter, far too much of it was irrelevant and felt like padding. It’s here though that we also meet the enigmatic Russian Count, Sergei, with whom Fleur is instantly smitten.The second [...]

    3. Thank God for the last 50 or so pages. Before that I thought I'd go out of my mind, thinking I knew where the story was headed and not liking it one bit. (view spoiler)[ I hated Count Kirov and his creepy, demanding behavior. I thought he was supposed to be seen as romantic. What a relief that his behavior was meant to be off-putting. (hide spoiler)] So, yay for the unpredictability and character growth. A good read all in all, but I liked Anna more.

    4. After quite a few years I finally purchased "Fleur" since I was a huge fan of the first book "Anna", but the second book in the Kirov Saga was a huge letdown. Fleur's character was a bit on the dull side while Sergei was odd and almost bipolar with his moods and behavior. Learning more about the history of the Kirov family you can understand why the Kirov men act as they do. It felt that I was at times reading a history book rather than a book of historical fiction so I found myself skipping som [...]

    5. Mind numbingly boring. I can't believe this book exists. How did the author not continually fall asleep over her incredibly dull work? How did the editors and publishers not lapse into comas having to give this thoroughly uninspired manuscript multiple close reads?

    6. Well, i didn't expect this ending, and i'm sad for all those poor men losing their lives in the Crimean war. Very moving book, the writer did not go for the easy solution and i respected her for that.

    7. Preferred Anna. It was very slow to get going and could have been half the size without missing anything important
