Recent Comments "Jeremy Poldark"
I found the third book in the Poldark series as enthralling as ever and I highly recommend this series. Can't wait for the PBS miniseries "Poldark" to begin at the end of June either. Ross and Demelza are experiencing tough financial times thanks to George Warleggan and cousin Francis. Will Ross lose everything he owns to the rapacious George Warleggan? Can't wait to read the next book "Warleggan" to find out. I'm beginning to strongly dislike Elizabeth who doesn't seem to be able to appreciate [...]
"It isn’t where you’re born in this world, it’s what you do."If you’ve read my reviews of both Ross Poldark and Demelza, then you might be thinking here we go again… Candi’s set to get all fangirlish on us! Yep, you’re probably right! Jeremy Poldark is the third in this splendid series and just as riveting as the first two. In this one, the futures of some of my beloved characters are threatened, and I was worried indeed. Ross is faced with a dilemma and his thought process in dete [...]
"He realized that all the struggle and anxiety of the next few months would not be his alone. She would bear her share of the burden. She was bearing it now."Within the pages of Winston Graham's Book 3 of the Poldark Series, we come to see the strength and determination of the slight waif who won the heart of Ross PoldarkDemelza. An unlikely young girl who would become his wife. An unlikely frail figure who would cast a giant shadow on things to come.Ross Poldark, who returned to his familial la [...]
I've just finished the first three of the Poldark novels. I'd never have considered reading them if I'd not had the opportunity to read the first one for free on kindle, mainly because I shy away from romance-novels-made-into-a-long-running-TV-series. Pity that. Winston Graham wrote the first four novels as a series in the 1950's, and then returned to them in the 1970's and wrote another five. I've read the first three only, because the fourth is not available on Kindle. I will seek it out at th [...]
The third book in the Poldark series. The farther into the series I go the deeper my feelings become for these marvelous characters. Demelza Poldark is one of the most finely drawn, enthralling women ever put to paper. She has become the heart of the books for me, and I feel that Winston Graham must have felt the same. She is open and honest and leads with her heart, and she puts the gentry to shame.In this book we become better acquainted with Dwight Enys, a doctor ahead of his time, who feels [...]
In this riveting third book, Ross must face trial for the actions he took following the death of his infant daughter. The feud with the Warleggans threatens the entire community and the relationship with his cousin Francis remains strained. It is then that his wife Demelza makes an announcement that changes their lives in unexpected ways and offers a glimmer of hope for the family's future.
Maybe it’s because I’m just of common stock, but I want the home about me: candles burning, curtains drawn, warmth, tea, friendship, love. Those are what matter to me.~Demelza, Jeremy PoldarkAlthough the title refers to a new member of the Poldark clan, this 3rd book remains true to the original driving force of the series with Ross and Demelza still at the forefront of the story. To call this a romance novel would be an injustice to Winston Graham's keen attention to historical details focu [...]
Loved this even more for re-reading.I would encourage others to read as there is far more in the book.Loved the original series and had Robin and Angharad my mind as I read.Had a walk around the coastal path yesterday with the dramatic music from that series also.Very atmospheric!
This series is simply amazing! This is the third book in the Poldark series. After a horrific tragedy in book 2, Ross is angry and fragmented. In his pain he does something that will bring him to trial later on. Demelza by his side - loving, supportive, unselfishands up for him at all costs. These are some of the best written characters out there. A highly enjoyable read. I am reading this series as part of a buddy read. Most of my "buddies" are ahead of me, as I joined late. But, oh the discuss [...]
Ross and Demelza are reeling from the tragedy of losing little Julia. Ross is brooding over his cousin's betrayal and the end of the Carnmore Copper Company. He's also about to face trial at the Assizes for his role in the shipwrecks of last winter. Should he play conciliatory like his lawyer wants him to? Then what? Debtors' prison? Should he borrow money from friends the way Demelza wants him to or should he stick to his principles? Being Ross, the answer is fairly obvious. George Warleggan's [...]
Jeremy Poldark was very similar to the seaside town of Cornwall where it takes place: turbulent, complex infrastructures, and it was breathtaking. Considering the first half of the novel presides over a court case, I was surprisingly intrigued by the whole ordeal. I thought I would have been bored, but a small town filled with my favorite Poldark characters holds plenty of charm for me. Everyone was scattered around the village and it could have been a party despite the dire circumstances.There [...]
Another fabulous installment in this Poldark saga that I am LOVING!!! On to book number four!!
It has been a long while since I've read a novel which has both excited and dazzled me in the way that this one has. As a writer, Winston Graham paints pictures with prose the way Michelangelo did with his palette. Not a word is wasted, evoking images of the windswept landscape of Southwest England abutting the ocean sea that is Cornwall, dotted here and there with a smattering of landed estates, villages, inns, mines, coves, and houses of varying kinds.It is August 1790 and Ross Poldark finds h [...]
Third in the Poldark saga, this is one that resolves the final twist that occurs at the end of the novel Demelza. The first half of the novel is taken up with Ross' impending trial for disturbing the peace, striking an officer, and other assorted bits of mayhem. Ross for his part has turned dark and sullen, especially as if he is found guilty, he could quite well be executed. Demelza, his wife, is mourning the death of their daughter Julia, and is trying hard to keep Ross in line, and find a way [...]
5 FABULOUS SECOND TIME AROUND STARS!!Not by a hairbreadth would a single external circumstance move to accommodate him and his schemes—he knew that. As well ask, on the butterfly's behalf, for the postponement of sunset or tomorrow's gale. Her face was preoccupied, thoughtful, intent, but not on what she was doing. He realized that all the struggle and anxiety of the next few months would not be his alone. She would bear her share of the burden. She was bearing it already. He went to join her. [...]
I'm giving this 3.5-4 stars. I thought there were some really good scenes and descriptions in this one but I am not head over heals for this series. I am looking forward though to seeing where this story goes and meeting up again with the characters.
4.5 stars. Loved the continuing saga, of Ross and Demelza and all the other lives that make up their story! Though I'm reeeeally not happy about what I see coming a mile away. (view spoiler)[Elizabeth's unhappiness is all her own fault. She tossed Ross aside *which showed her stupidity*, married Francis and then gave him the cold shoulder after their son was born, but yet seems to feel like admiration is her right, be it George Warleggan or Ross, doesn't seem to matter who. Bitch. And I do love [...]
Review to follow.
Still obsessed with the Poldarks. If you haven't yet, do watch the BBC (2015). But advise DONT read Poldarks' Cornwall before you have read all the books - its FULL of spoilers for the whole series!
4'5 realmente. Adoro el carácter de Ross y se prevee un siguiente libro muy muy interesante
This series takes me away to another time and place so completely. In that vein, I can compare it to Harry Potter. I knew Poldark was special when I spent an entire evening shopping for beach cottages in Cornwall. Seriously. These people and this time and place feel so real. ( I may also have a website on my phone that lets me look at live video of Cornwall beaches).And I have to say, that speech that Francis gave at the end about Demelza, I got a little misty. What an incredible and insightful [...]
It has taken nearly a month to finish this book. These books take me a while to get through because it's so dense. Graham does a great job getting the language of the time down and keeping up the tension. I really enjoyed getting to read this one and notice the differences between the book and the show. I still really enjoy both book and TV show. Can't wait to get into book 4! After I finish that one I'll be past the content in the shows and in new territory.
Nobody could have convinced me prior to August 30th 2017 that I would be HOOKED on this series! Seriouslyeven though I had added the first one to my TBR and have been hearing about the new series on PBS, I wasn't in any hurry to get started. I have plenty of books I want to get to. Plus.who wants to start something with 12 books? I surely didn't think I wanted to. Well, that was me then. a month ago. NOW? There are ONLY 12 books? What? I'm already on #6!!!! I MUST slow down! What will I possibly [...]
Winston Graham once again highlights the plight of the poor in 1790's Cornwall, first through Ross and then through Dr. Dwight Enys. As Ross must focus more of his energy on his trial and then his own financial problems, it is Dwight that seeks to become the champion of the lower classes. An argument between Dwight and the alluring Caroline Penvenen, written as historical fiction in 1950, sounds similar to arguments about income inequality taking place in the 21st Century. It doesn't matter that [...]
Me encantan estas series largas que libro a libro se va desarrollando toda la historia. Una vez te metes en ella, no hay manera de dejarla y solo quieres saber qué pasará después. Con el primer libro ya dije que la historia tenía infinitas posibilidades. Luego el segundo fue algo más flojo pero en este tercer libro se incrementa la intensidad y preveo momentos duros en los próximos. Veremos a ver.
BREEZED THROUGH THIS!!!! It felt so good to be reading Poldark again, since I haven't since Series 1 ended. It picked up perfectly after Demelza's ending. I admit, I cried from relief when Ross was found not guilty. And my poor Demelza!!!!! You just wanna hug her!! Ross, I love you, but ugh! You're such a man!! It ended well though, and I'm so glad they're happy! At least for now
Pulp historical-fiction that you can read fast. A friend is lending me these books. 3.5 Similar to and a bit easier to read than Outlander No time travel emphasis more on class struggle.
Just finished book three -- I'm hopelessly obsessed with this series. Working my way through the BBC series (2015, season one) right now and on the lookout for book four!
Another wonderful novel in the Poldark series.The characters are all so beautifully drawn - full of noble qualities and yet flawed and very human.And there is so much humour! Jud Paynter's funeral was pure gold!
