Going into this book, I had no idea that this was the second book in the series I started Light on Lucrezia with a bit of trepidation since I wasn t sure if I would understand the story as it was a sequel, following Madonna of the Seven Hills, the first book in Jean Plaidy s Lucrezia Borgia series However, it was soon evident that this book could be read as a stand alone because there was no confusion, not even a hint that another book preceeded it.Plaidy introduces a new image of Lucrezia in Going into this book, I had no idea that this was the second book in the series I started Light on Lucrezia with a bit of trepidation since I wasn t sure if I would understand the story as it was a sequel, following Madonna of the Seven Hills, the first book in Jean Plaidy s Lucrezia Borgia series However, it was soon evident that this book could be read as a stand alone because there was no confusion, not even a hint that another book preceeded it.Plaidy introduces a new image of Lucrezia instead of the sexy, murdering vixen she history normally portrays her as, she is a misunderstood girl who feels very much alone I enjoyed this new perspective on Lucrezia since it presented her as a normal human being rather than some otherworldly creature of Satan the Borgias are normally viewed as.However, that is where the fun in this book stops Starting with Lucrezia s character, she was the very definition of Mary Sue Radiant, charming, witty and intelligent, she was flat and unrealistic I did pity her when her during her miscarriages but apart from that, I felt nothing Her difficulties and problems did not stir me and I was irritated with her lack of nerve She willingly went along with everything her father, Rodrigo, and her brother, Cesarae, planned She accepted everything they said even though deep down, she knew that it was somehow wrong and illogical Being in her head wasn t fun because while the events of the book were interesting and even enjoyable to read, Lucrezia was just a dull and vapid character Completely lifeless and uninspired, her perspectives were soporific.Lucrezia s innocence was the very definition of exasperating During the first parts of the book, this was what sets her apart from the rest of her family Whereas the rest were vipers and cunning snakes, she was content to lark around and talk to people However, it becomes vexing halfway into the book since she was completely aware of her father and Cesarae s evildoings yet she didn t act in order to stop it She was indifferent and apathetic, satisfied with sitting around and crying for all the deaths that had taken place without actually acting to stop it.Even after her beloved husband was killed by her brother, she was still the same She had moments of distrust and anger but in the end, she accepted that her brother was her husband s murderer Blood does run thicker than water but come on, she was a Borgia and she should have a spine at the least.The other issue I had with this book was its historical accuracy As a historical fiction novel, it is granted that the author will take some liberties with the names, dates and events in order to fit into the storyline but this book read like a fanfiction of the hit TV series, The Borgias True, there isn t much known about the Borgias and their lives but since the book covers a lengthy passage of time, it would have been better if the author had included some real and recorded events Apart from the characters, the entire thing seemed to have been dreamed up The dates are confusing too since no specific year was mentioned and I was forced to try to deduce what part of the 15th century we were in.The monotony of the book made it an even lengthier read Nothing happened, merely an endless cycle of Lucrezia marrying somebody then falling in love, justifying her father and her brother s actions, having a baby then somebody dying 300 pages full of the same thing happening over and over again with only the people and the settings as the difference Light on Lucrezia was a disappointing read and quite frankly, a waste of my money I will not be back for Jean Plaidy s other books Pure novellised hagiography Lucrezia is an unusual choice for a Mary Sue, and therefore this novel doesn t really work very well. A bit of a slog if I m honestI wanted a fictional overview of Lucrezia Borgia and the people in her life based on historical fact but easy to read All covered by this novel However, Plaidy s ability as a storyteller is absent here It s almost as if she got fed up of writing about Lucrezia but felt obliged to go on til the bitter end And at the end, she galloped through to the deathbed scene with unseemly alacrity Not her finest work but I know a lotabout Lucrezia s timeline than I did A bit of a slog if I m honestI wanted a fictional overview of Lucrezia Borgia and the people in her life based on historical fact but easy to read All covered by this novel However, Plaidy s ability as a storyteller is absent here It s almost as if she got fed up of writing about Lucrezia but felt obliged to go on til the bitter end And at the end, she galloped through to the deathbed scene with unseemly alacrity Not her finest work but I know a lotabout Lucrezia s timeline than I did before Two DNFs in a row Apparently I m on a roll This book is so dull It s all tell, there s no meat on the bones, and I find it hard to believe Lucrezia Borgia and Alfonso of Naples were such wet blankets. Lucrezia s realization of the colossal passion of the Borgias after the death of Alfonso d Aragon Duke of Bisceglie and Prince of Salerno , her second husband, and that she may have just exchanged the Borgias gilded cage for another after she moved to Ferrara to marry Alfonso d Este Duke of Ferrara , her third husband. It was fairly good until view spoiler the pope dies hide spoiler then the rest of the book drags on with not much happening It was fairly good until view spoiler the pope dies hide spoiler then the rest of the book drags on with not much happening Just read this book having read book one Well written and researched the fascinating story of lucrezia continues I love Jean Plaidys style she is easy to read and you get pulled into whatever she writes Couldn t put it down. Quite readable Plaidy eschews the sensationalism used by many other people writing about the Borgias and instead tries to understand how the Lucrezia of the Vatican could become the respected Duchess of her later years. {DOWNLOAD KINDLE} Ú Light on Lucrezia ⚸ Londoncmp Encuadernaci n en tapa blanda de editorial ilustrada Idioma ingl s Este libro es de segunda mano y tiene o puede tener marcas y se ales de su anterior propietario Impressive But, if you haven t read the first book would be confused with some characters that are mentioned in the second book From many journals were written that Lucrezia was an evil princess, but Plaidy has written differently At least, I won t judge a person from one side story.
