I don t even know why I finished this book I guess I regretted having wasted 350 so I wasted something much valuable time Go me There were moments when I sat on the train and just stared out the window because I couldn t take it anyThe Battle of Trafalgar is in it Also Madame Tussaud Early 19th century Napoleon Jane Austen and Vanity Fair I won t make any smartass remarks about wax figures being alive and smarter and with much better sense of purpose than the characters in this novel no I won t but I have to say that almost no one in it behaves reasonably certainly not the Mary Sue or any of her suitorsAs for authenticity here is the reasoning of the officer dude who committed treason therefore could be hanged drawn and uarteredBut you can certainly see why I was forced to do it After all I was languishing without a promotion with no guarantee of ever receiving one I had to have an alternate planI rest my case
