[Novel] The Scarlet Pimpernel (Baroness Orczy)

The Scarlet Pimpernel


A historical novel set during the French Revolution that introduced the concept of “a hero with a secret identity” to the realm of fiction, and it does indeed come off a bit more like a comic book rather than serious historical fiction.

Interesting, likable characters
The plot feels a bit simplistic
Enlightening on French Revolution
The story feels a bit shallow
