I found the book very interesting .
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel about the lives of Mary Anning and Elizabeth Philpot - two very remarkable women living in 19th century England.
In "Remarkable Creatures" Chevalier has done a good job of taking real historical figures and crafting an interesting story around them.
A lovely little book that is a bit slow, but absolutely worth the read. Very interesting insight to life in England in the early 1800's.Published 12 days ago by Judy Winfield

I enjoyed this book as it was a reminder of the time we have spent on the Jurassic Coast of England. The characters are complex and develop throughout the book in unforeseen ways. Read morePublished 21 days ago by H. Frank
