    ePUB Margaret Drabble ✓ The Red ueen ePUB á The Red Epub / ✓ ueen download, The Red book, The Red ueen ePUBI think this is my first book ever from Margaret Drabble and it might by my last I have no idea if that will be true or not but at this point well The Red ueen was such a disappointment for meOkay so The Red ueen is about a Korean crown princess being forced to marry a mad man who is line to become the next king or the king Either way I didn't really care Now her tale is somewhat entertaining and a smidge interesting but you'll get bored rather uickly Just like I did Or not if you're into the whole mindset of marriage back in the days I'd rather sit through a lecture on all of the sciences wrapped together than reread this book ever again AND I HATE SCIENCE SO GOD DAMN MUCHNow around the half way point of this book you'll really start to hate yourself because you somehow convinced yourself to keep on reading What if it gets better? It wont What if I drink some wine and I'll start to like it? Drink 3 bottles and you'll end up hating it even Okay maybe I'm being

    ePUB Margaret Drabble ✓ The Red ueen ePUB á The Red Epub / ✓ ueen download, The Red book, The Red ueen ePUBI'm surprised Margaret Drabble's The Red ueen is on the 2006 list of 1001 Books to Read Before You Die I really didn't find the book particularly interesting or uniue 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 deteste

    ePUB Margaret Drabble ✓ The Red ueen ePUB á The Red Epub / ✓ ueen download, The Red book, The Red ueen 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 ueen 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 fig

    ePUB Margaret Drabble ✓ The Red ueen ePUB á The Red Epub / ✓ ueen download, The Red book, The Red ueen ePUBI picked up my copy of THE RED UEEN 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 UEEN 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 uickly 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 an 18th century Korean Crown Princess who tells about court intrigue and her marr

    ePUB Margaret Drabble ✓ The Red ueen ePUB á The Red Epub / ✓ ueen download, The Red book, The Red ueen 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 princess dead for centuries comparing her society to ours? A teaser about the fashions of the day followed by a discourse on Confucius and Oedipus then a statement that of course we knew nothing about the ancient GreeksWhatev

    ePUB Margaret Drabble ✓ The Red ueen ePUB á The Red Epub / ✓ ueen download, The Red book, The Red ueen ePUBI found this book compelling on two fronts I was interested in the time and place Korea mid 1700s and I was interested in the author's story telling The first half of the novel is told in first person through the eyes of the title character the ghost of a noble born Korean woman who married the crown prince of her kingdom while she was alive While telling her story she 'haunts' a present day woman who appears to be the thinly disguised author To what end the ghost haunts is not clearly revealed The purported reason seems to be 'telling her story'The ghost's story is compelling but why do it this way?The second half of the novel takes an omniscient POV as it follows around the 'haunted' woman During this part of the novel the author Margaret Drabble does two things I would think was beyond a professional and successful writer She sometimes has entire paragraphs in an interrogatory mode as her character analyzes her
