The Venice Sketchbook - Rhys Bowen - A Short Summary and Review

The Bastard - John Jakes - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Bastard:

How an illegitimate French heir of an English duke became an American patriot.

Favorite John Jakes quote from the book:

Reading is the means by which the lowest man can lift himself from a state of ignorance.

Questions to ponder while reading The Bastard:

Would you have pressed your case?

Can you walk away from money?

My review of the book:

There was a lot of action.

There was a lot of intrigues.

There were a lot of unlikeable characters.

Still, though I liked the book.
