At first, I didn’t feel that involved with the story, but when Hugh meets his three relationships – the beautiful, the sublime, and the indifferent. Yep, from Edmund Burke’s A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful, the story’s narrative just flowed smoothly.
I loved Hugh. I loved his sassy and captivating persona. His internal monologues are also so much fun to read. I also loved the secondary characters, which seems to fall right out of those old renaissance-themed movies.
I liked that the romance wasn’t as dragged out, although I thought the narrative suffers a bit on the second half of the book because it feels like there’s a lot of telling more than showing.
The author also has an excellent grasp of the language of the time, which I appreciate here. Each character has a distinct vibe. His humor is on point; I find myself chuckling now and then.
Overall, I found this to be really sweet, humorous, and very interesting. It’s quite a different take from the usual queer historicals I’ve read before and is well worth my time.
My main issue is , that I just couldn't connect with Hugh . Don't know if is the style book is written or/and the slow moving plot or/and I was expecting something else entirely.
Anywho, take my review with a grain of salt , check it out ; you might like it as many of my book friends and fellow reviewers found it to be a very charming and clever story.
I just reviewed Hugh by David Lawrence. #Hugh #NetGalley
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for a review.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
