My Last Duchess review ´ 0 Daisy Goodwin ¹ 0 free download summary Ó PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¹ Daisy Goodwin Hing is uite as it seems however Ivo is withdrawn and secretive and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals Money Cora soon learns cannot buy everything as she must decide what is truly worth the price in her life and her marria. I really really hate Ivo and Jim How dare Ivo be so angry when he caused his wife to run into social problems by witholding information that would have made her cautious He keeps claiming to love her but then not only doesn t help her when she becomes hurt by his effort to hide his own indiscretions but becomes angry with her He never actually does anything for her when she gets hurt and only admits what he s done when it becomes possible that he might lose something he wants In other words he s only willing to sacrifice for himself and not for her That s selfish and NOT loving as he claimed I possibly hate Jim than Ivo He s only interested in getting laid by Bertha never interested in her as a person Even in the end he breaks his promise of secrecy to her for his own selfish purposes namely he s worried he won t get to sleep with her any If he was even minutely worried about her he should have at least known that her mother had died or that her mother was ill Also I never understood how trickingcleverly manipulating a guy into marrying you would seem like a good idea Why would you want to be with a guy who didn t want to be with you without you needing to use guile And why would you want to be with Jim even if you didn t need to use guileThe best part of this book was the comparison between the relationships between servants and masters in England and the US and how the cultures differed in both good treatment and maltreatment of their servants 25

I haven t really fully made my mind up about this bookIt wasn t a Mills and Boon type of book it was filled out than that and was over 400 pages However if you were to ask me how it was filled out I am at a slight loss how to answer To be honest a lot of stuff probably could have been cut out of this and if wanted could have easily have been made into a M Bwithout the sex and loving hero that isThe Duke Ivo well he was pretty much a useless male lead Usually the lead man in books has his faults but comes through in the end and I suppose in his way he did But I didn t like him and he had no redeeming features in my opinionCora Cash fab name was actually a fairly likeable character in the end she wasnt as spoiled and vain as expected she really did marry him for love but couldnt understand why Ivo was the way he was with her I felt sorry for her being lumped with him But there were times that I was really annoyed with her and was silently yelling at her to grow a backbone and stick up for herself against everyoneReally there were no characters that was relatable or even that likeable as a whole Yet I found I couldn t put the book down I had to know what was going to happen next So in that sense it was a very good book because it had my curiousity aroused The ending could have been better Confrontations were building up throughout the whole book yet they kinda fizzled out at the end which was disappointingI did like the author s style of writing I just felt that the book was a bit too long and it could have had some stuff taken outI suppose has a whole I did like it but its not something I would read again Once was enough I am not sure I would anythng else from this author either710

I just loved this book It was so up my alley Two of my favorite books are Gone With the Wind and Forever Amber and this was sort of a mash up of those Okay this was not as a sweeping saga as those two books but it borrowed elements from them There may have been nothing really new offered here but I don t care It was the exact kind of story that keeps me turning the pages and removes me from the drudgery of houseworkThe story centers around Cora Cash love the name who is rich beyond belief as we are reminded every other page Her mother lacks only one thing that money can t buy a royal title so she dispatches Cora off across the pond to land a duke Cora is rich and pretty Duke is handsome and poor bingo The Duke and Cora come to the marriage with their baggage from the past in the form of Charlotte and Teddy respectively Of course the path to happily ever after cannot be smooth or there wouldn t be a story Cue the misunderstandings and lost opportunities and you have the bulk of this book with a dollop of happy ending like a cherry on top The supporting members of the cast such as Cora s maid and mother and the Duke s best friend round out the story I thoroughly enjoyed this book like a hunk Godiva chocolate
