    The real life story of whatever happened to Lucrezia de Medici is intriguing Why, then, was this book so slow Where was the drama, the tension and the mystery, and why didn t I care about any of the characters I ended up skim reading ...

    1.5 stars I hate when you really look forward to a book and then you find yourself skimming and forcing yourself just to get through it Lucrezia de Medici is one of those historical mysteries A poem has been left in history about her My Last Duchess and historians want to know what happened to her Alfonso, the controlling husband and Lucrezia the fun loving girl Should make for a great novel right The story never took off It was very slow The author didn t make me want to turn a page I only did because I wanted to see what angle the author would take on what happened to Lucrezia If you want to read about this time period, skip this one and read The Second Duchess by Elizabeth Loupas Her story covers the second wife to Alfonso, Bar...

    This is a tale of love and lust Ms Kimm does an excellent job of spinning the strings together to create a compelling story of love gone wrong and lust unsatisfied At least within the confines of the marriage of Lucrezia and Alfonse That does ...

    I guess I m a sucker for those Kindle daily deals What a 15 book that s only 99 cents And I ve never heard of the book I ll buy it anyway After all, I did read that Robert Browning poem it s based on a couple of timesSo it turned out to be something of a torrid and rather graphic Harlequin romance style book, with a higher vocabulary and scenery The one good thing about it was that the villain was not one dimensional as he very well could have been Yet it...

    Can t really decide between 2 or 3 stars The first 100 pages really didn t grasp me so that part is 2 stars I m afraid, but after that it got better and it would be 3, perhaps.I liked the characters of Lucrezia and Catalina loved those girls right from the start the details on fresco painting very interesting the ending with Chiara s dad I normally don t like coinsedences but this wrapped it up so nicely it felt very satisfying the fact that the poem was implemented at exactly the right place in the book the lovely cover of courseI did not...

    You say Lucrezia and I say LucreziaYou probably don t know this, but one of my favorite historical peeps in the world was Lucrezia Borgia, so when His Last Duchess by Gabrielle Kimm was released I was very excited However, even though my eyes were seeing the words Lucrezia de Medici, my brain was interpreting those words as Lucrezia Borgia So, when I began to read His Last Duchess nothing made sense I mean really, I understand the words historical fiction That is where you take history and change it to fit your fancy But, this book was quite a stretch I knew this was historical fiction, but Gee Willikers, this was really historical fiction And then I reread the back blurb and saw the light Wrong Lucrezia Mind adjustment time Now, it just so happens that everything turned out just fine, because this was a really good book.It s been a while since I ve read an historical fictionI always find the rewriting of history intriguing Especially, when things turn out a little happier than they actually did As it turned out, Lucrezia de Medici was the daughter of Eleanor of Toledo,...

    Um romance de poca com um enredo intrincado de personagens interessantes e fortes, bem constru do e estruturado e com uma hist ria cruel, desumana e perturbadora que me revoltou.A escrita da autora directa, clara, flu da e concisa.Uma leitura agrad vel com sentimento, com um final inesperado e surpreendente que me agradou bastante, a autora deveria ter desenvolvido mais certos aspectos da hist ria, tais como os personagens Lucr cia casa com o duque de Ferrara com apenas 16 anos, e imagina uma vida boa ao lado do seu marido O que deveria ser um casamento m gico, depressa se transformou num pesadelo Alfonso torna se num homem reles e frio e quanto mais o tempo passa e n o conseguindo que Lucr cia gerasse um filho seu, mais desprez vel e arrogante se torna, procurando assim amantes.Lucr cia humilhada constantemente pelo marido, percebendo ela que afinal este casamento n o passava de um mero contrato Uma personagem ador vel, cativante, simples e modesta que trata todos com respeito, considera o e dignidade, n o fazendo distin o entre pobres e ricos Tendo como sua confidente a dama de companhia.Gostei das personagens de Jacomo e de Francesca, duas pessoas encantadoras, gentis e af veis O que aconteceu a Lucr cia de M dici O livro envolvente, perturbante, emocionante e seduziu me da primeira ltima p gina Uma narrativa estimulante de peri...

    If you want to read a good historical fiction, this book is what you need Before marrying the Alfonso, Lucrezia lives a happy, free life with her parents She expects her wedded life to be blissful and felicitous, but she does not understand the man under the admirable facade He is actually a cold and distant man who cares little for his wife and only views her as a rare treasure.Gabrielle has written this book in a way that readers will immediately connect with Lucrezia s pitiful condition and vote for her happiness She is an aristocrat, but she is actually a poor girl, because she can never pick her own partner When she seeks happiness beyond the castle in which she is trapped, you will feel excited but scared for her Her only friend is the kitchen maid she brought from her parents residence, Catelina.Alfonso s character is dark and depressing I can t figure out his motives most of the times He doesn t seem to have a heart Well, metaphorically He gives me an impression of a man without a ...
