    The Red Queen ePUB è The Red PDF/EPUB ² queen ebok, The Red free, The Red Queen EpubOof I read The Radiant Way a long time ago and liked it but this was awful Drabble thinly disguises herself as a different aging British academic why why bother with the disguise?? and then channels not very successfully an eighteenth century Korean princess I say not very successfully because really most of it is Drabble imposing her late twentieth century values and preoccupations on this hapless historical figure Time travel gone really bad Stay away stay away

    The Red Queen ePUB è The Red PDF/EPUB ² queen ebok, The Red free, The Red Queen EpubI'm surprised Margaret Drabble's The Red Queen is on the 2006 list of 1001 Books to Read Before You Die I really didn't find the book particularly interesting or unique In fact I really didn't enjoy the book much at allPlot wise the first half the book is at least somewhat interesting It tells the story of a Korean crown princess forced into a marriage with a madman who is in line to become king While her tale is interesting I found it difficult to become really immersed in the story It felt much like a lecture or a history lessonI really detested the second half of the book which fairly jarringly turns to third person narration as what I assume is the Red Queen tells the story of a researcher named Barbara Halliwell who reads the Red Queen's memoirs while on a trip to Korea I disliked the narration and endless paragraphs with questions and t

    The Red Queen ePUB è The Red PDF/EPUB ² queen ebok, The Red free, The Red Queen EpubWhere do I start? The beginning part of the book was confusing With the different names for the years and dates not to mention the foreign names it was very hard to keep a handle on the book And I happen to be Korean I speak read and write it as well The story of the prince Sado however is one very well known in Korea My parents used to repeat it with a sense of gleeful macabre about how even a prince can meet his doom if the child does not obey their parents So I was probably prejudiced against the book to begin with The first half of the book I found myself screaming get to it already And when she finally got to the climax of the story she portrays the Crown Princess as a wife who does nothing to save her husband Not even a visit and a kind word through the damne

    The Red Queen ePUB è The Red PDF/EPUB ² queen ebok, The Red free, The Red Queen EpubI picked up my copy of THE RED QUEEN several years ago per the suggestion of Peter Boxall's list of 1001 Books to Read Before You Die helpfully spreadsheeted by the Internet Unfortunately somewhere between 2003 an 2010 he changed his mind and THE RED QUEEN got the boot to make way for new selections This still makes me really angry if I think about it too hard as I was doing a few days ago when I saw it on my shelf and decided to read it anyway read it proudly and indignantly Ha ha Ha ha ha ha I did read it and pretty quickly I see what other reviewers were saying when they wrote that feels a little like two novellas put side to side One is a first person account of

    The Red Queen ePUB è The Red PDF/EPUB ² queen ebok, The Red free, The Red Queen EpubBy happy coincidence I started reading this book just as I finished reading Possession by AS Byatt I decided to do a little research into Margaret Drabble with whom I was unfamiliar and discovered that she and Byatt are sisters With that knowledge I couldn't help but compare the two novels and the authors' styles Strangely enough or maybe not considering the possible ties and implications of sisterhood The Red Queen also deals with the theme of possession The first half of the novel tells the story of the Crown Princess of Korea and her husband Prince Sado The Crown Prince and Princess are actual historical figures Drabble bases this part of the novel on the Crown Princess?

    The Red Queen ePUB è The Red PDF/EPUB ² queen ebok, The Red free, The Red Queen EpubLife is too short to read bad books This may not be a 'bad' book however for me it is bewildering silly and time wasting I was looking forward to the historical content but any paragraph of historical style is immediately followed by 21st century knowledge and musings this makes the reading experience extraordinary disjointed and at best uncomfortableA Korean princess from the 1700's discoursing knowledgeably about anorexia and post natal depression? Are you kidding me?And what is with this hypothetical prince
