Cotillion is a wonderful novel, but I must confess, I was a little bit disappointed. I imagined it would be cute and adorable like Northanger Abbey, but it wasn't. I didn't really fall in love with the heroine at all and hero took me 3/4s of the book to actually love him. But all that considered it was still a good book.
I love Georgette Heyer's historical novels. But it's truly difficult to pick a favourite! Cotillion, however, is in my top three, along with The Unknown Ajax and These Old Shades. I read it every year! I read most of them every year! There's also The Foundling, and Devil's Cub---and the original Black Moth! The Grand Sophy was actually the subject of a paper I wrote for school! Okay. Now, also read all the comments below mine.
Just when you think you can't bear the fact that Jane Austen only completed six novels, you realize with the greatest of joy, "Ah, yes, there is Georgette Heyer." Cotillion is one of her best.
I've been meaning to read Georgette Heyer for years and I'm sad it took me so long to discover the delights that is this novel. Her ability to effortless evoke the Regency period is awe-inspiring and her characters and plots are full of charm. The novel is full of sly humour and just a dash of romance that makes the narrative worthwhile. I fell in love with Kitty as a precocious heroine and Freddy as the slang spouting, slightly dandyish accomplice in her plots. Their exploits were thoroughly enjoyable and I was charmed and amused throughout. I will definitely be reading more Heyer in the near future.
Lots of fun and absolutely hilarious - I adore Freddy! He may not be as sharp as your average romantic hero but he is definitely lovable.
