I enjoyed the journey for most part, a bit long yet many interesting plot twists kept it interesting and surprises helped. A good read.
The book itself is a sweeping saga from pre-WWI to post-war. Background and cultural aspects are well developed and interesting. Book is filled with memorable secondary characters. I loved the symbolism and allegories.
There is a lot of pain, suffering , misunderstandings, etc. of which I am not usually a big fan. But this not a melodrama. Somehow, Speers pulls it all off and it seems realistic and necessary to the plot.
Your just gonna have to read it in order for this review to mean anything..
I absolutely LOVED this book! As soon as I began reading it the outside world ceased to exist for me! It is a beautiful novel about enduring love of two passionate characters who hold onto their love no matter the obstacles in their way.
Jeremy and Clarry are the type of characters that make readers fall in love with them as well as the book. They are intelligent and kid, and they also are human, faults and all.
MY COUSIN JEREMY is set mostly in the time before WWI, but the end of the novel deals with the aftermath of WWI, which includes the struggles that young veterans had coping with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder during a time when not much was known about this problem.
Clarry's love for her cousin is so pure and sweet that it's impossible not to fall in love with her. I admit that at first, the idea of cousin's being in love creeped me out, but I made myself keep in mind that cousin's marrying was not at all uncommon during this time period.
I wasn't completely endeared to Jeremy at the beginning, because I felt like he was a bit of a coward when it came to standing his ground regarding his love for Clarry. He also came across as a little arrogant, but as the novel progressed, especially after WWI, he became just as beloved to me as Clarry was.
This is a passionate love story between two amazing characters, and the sex scenes were beautifully written without a hint of vulgarity. I was amazed at how quickly I read this novel. I kept on reading, because I had to know what was going to happen next! Susan Speers has created a love story which I can honestly say is right up there with some of the greatest love story's (in my opinion) of all time.Read more ›
The characters were very easy to relate to, regardless of whether you liked them or not. Clarissa was very easy to love, as the doting woman to Jeremy. I often had to remind myself that I was reading a story set in a very different time in society because I kept wanting to tell her to stop being a doormat! Jeremy as a sympathetic character, but one I was often very frustrated with because of his behavior. One of my favorite characters was Dickon, although he wasn't a main character. He was such a sweet and gentle man in the story and I really liked him, Caroline was also a very sympathetic character, although not always the most likeable. All of the characters, regardless of their role in the story, were very well developed and made very real.
If you like a good historical romance, I definately recommend this book. It was very emjoyable!

What a grand story! My emotions were all over the place. The characters were nicely evolved making Jeremy a very flawed and tortured soul. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Patlou
What a happy ending. Lots of twists and turns but they all got what they deserved eventually. Loved this book. Very well written.Published on June 29, 2013 by Mimi
Very nice, heart breaking at times. Quite realistic, it is something that could have really happened.
You wouldn't guess the end from the start.
With a wide array of characters, plenty of back story and a few punch-in-the-gut twists, this story is vastly entertaining. Read morePublished on May 10, 2011 by D. McKay
