Hmmmm Not Daphne s best ever Weirdly contorted historical what if in which US invade though seemingly initially invited by the British Government and by their high handed approach and attempt to americanize Britain it all goes horribly wrong The concept once again could have been enthralling and in the hands of the normally unfaltering du Maurier should have been but the whole story was just unconvincing Not so much the overall theme which was after all a flight of fancy but just the characterizations and the oddly jarring historicity which sat awkwardly As I write the review the stresses and strain of the Euro zone and the naughtiness of the have theyhave they not debate of the US bugging the snap chats and facebook updating of Mrs Merkel is fairly centre stage so ironically this book addresses some uite interesting uestions Nevertheless it is a disappointment If it was the first Daphne du Maurier I had tried it would probably have been my last

Summary Rule Britannia

Rule Britannia

characters Rule Britannia ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Summary Rule Britannia ’inizio della vicenda che vedrà coinvolti gli abitanti di casa Trevenal ovvero l’anziana Mad sua nipote Emma e i sei ragazzi adottati Joe Terry Sam Andy Colin e Be. When I started reading Rule Britannia it seemed very firmly in the cosy catastrophe sub genre It is set in rural Cornwall during the 1970s After a period of economic chaos the UK suddenly forms a political union with America which to the book s characters manifests itself as a very unwelcome military occupation The tale is told by Emma a spirited but rather directionless young woman of twenty She lives with her grandmother an eccentric retired actress and her grandmother s six adopted sons For the first eighty pages or so the narrative gently and amusingly introduces the characters and bucolic setting From then on the story becomes a lot darker and uite gripping It asks interesting uestions about the practicality and morality of resistance to occupation making it clear that there are no easy answers This is the first Du Maurier novel I ve read and I liked the combination of frivolity and thoughtfulness in her writing The characters were entertaining but retained a certain depth and ambiguity Even Emma s apparent naivety was well tempered by the strength of her protectiveness towards her family even in extreme circumstances In fact the unconventional family unit rang very true to me especially the conversations between Emma s grandmother and her father in which they constantly talked over one another Rule Britannia isn t a dystopia but it leans slightly in that direction I would still place it in the cosy catastrophe sub genre with a side of family drama Nonetheless it has a darkness about it as well which kept me reading avidly

Utterly wonderful venomously anti American final novel from one of Britain s greatest writers An alliance with the US results in the unwelcome imposition of an American military base in Cornwall Local elderly eccentric rouses the nation to send the whole bunch of fascists packingRousing stuff which is essential reading in the current political climate of right wing rhetoric and bleating Orwellian sloganising Yes it s dated technology has moved on since then but the message is there and I challenge any Brit with a heart not to feel the need to wipe a warm patriotic tearAmericans of course will hate it as will those of a busybody nature eg the reviewer above who gave it 1 star because of the irresponsible effect it will have on children Laugh I almost but Real Britishers will feel it strike a chord YANKS GO HOME AND STAY THERE
