The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Scarlet Pimpernel - Baroness Emmuska Orczy - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book The Scarlet Pimpernel:

A French wife's plot almost foils her English nobleman husband's plot to stop her brother's head from rolling during the French Revolution.

My favorite Baroness Emmuska Orczy quote from the book:

"Money and titles may be hereditary but brains are not..."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Would you have aided?

Did you think Marguerite was silly?

My review of the book The Scarlet Pimpernel:

Great fun in a book.

The Scarlet Pimpernel = First Superhero.

An overlooked classic.
