I cannot say enough good things about The Gentleman. I want to hand out copies to strangers.
The characters are brilliant. Lizzie and Vivien are my new heroes. Lionel is an actual mess. I want to wrap Lancaster in a blanket. The devil is straight out of a Terry Pratchett novel (and the footnotes! I missed footnotes).
I’ve already fan-casted the movie and written a script in my brain. It’s going to be amazing.
I try to be indignant, but there is a mischievous voice in the back of my head which suggests I’m having rather a good time. (page 186)
