    ePUB Maurice Dekobra ✓ La Madone des Sleepings Kindle × La Madone Kindle - ✓ madone book, sleepings free, La Madone epub, La Madone des Sleepings MOBI3 12Amazing to think that this was a best seller in its day if only because it does not seem to fit into any one genre To me it is a blend of light hearted escapades of the very British and very rich ala Jeeves and Wooster international espionage with sex ala James Bond critiue of Communism ala Orwell the plight of the woman who depends on men for wealth ala Edith WhartonOur narrator is a suave Frenchman with a heart of gold Like James Bond he loves women and does well with them; unlike James Bond he is a human with feelings and also respects women as people than he desires bedding them Given the current political news it was very peculiar to read a book set in the mid 1920s having a plot centered on Russia corruption and oil and even peculiar to be rooting for the obscenely rich noble main characters The book is good read that was eual parts frothy and dark I enjoyed itAlso the main author changed

    ePUB Maurice Dekobra ✓ La Madone des Sleepings Kindle × La Madone Kindle - ✓ madone book, sleepings free, La Madone epub, La Madone des Sleepings MOBII was slogging my way through a couple of books that didn't fully have my attention when I rebelled and scoured my shelves for something engaging I don't think I've read a spy novel since college or maybe high school but I trust Neversink Library so I ended up opening The Madonna of the Sleeping CarsAs usual I was not disappointed Well I was a little disappointed that The Madonna didn't turn out to be the spy nor even really the star of her own book but what the book is instead was delightful and compulsively readableThen again despite the fact that the narrator of the story is Prince Gerard Seliman yes I'm too lazy to figure out how to do the accent right now Lady Diana's The Madonna of the Sleeping Cars secretary Gerard seems a bit hapless an old fashioned gentleman at the whims of the actual actors of the story all women Lady Diana herself a ruined capitalist in search of a new fortune Madame Mouravieff the t

    ePUB Maurice Dekobra ✓ La Madone des Sleepings Kindle × La Madone Kindle - ✓ madone book, sleepings free, La Madone epub, La Madone des Sleepings MOBIA superbly poetic book I can see why people go back to it now and again for a reread Its prose alone evokes the best of Fitzgerald I know the latter is American but his style is the closest I can think ofPrecious little time is actually spent on the Orient Express or any train for that matter or is described only fleetingly which was the primary reason I took up this book Other than that the plot felt a bit small and short few charac

    ePUB Maurice Dekobra ✓ La Madone des Sleepings Kindle × La Madone Kindle - ✓ madone book, sleepings free, La Madone epub, La Madone des Sleepings MOBIIt was a fairly light read depending on how much you wanted to get into it I went into it with the false expectation that it was going to be a simple action thriller being a Spy novel It turned out to be constructed like a pastry than in inverted spyglass; sweet and flexible in interpretation I got about as much of it as I put in only to realise with sadness at the end that the things that made it than worthwhile the political historical references the women's liberation themes and the close up examination of 20s high society were ignored by me for most of the time which was a crying shame because the novel focussed on these The narrator is a bit of a bumbling character with too much naivety for any real confrontation and it's due to him that the character gains its light flavour With Prince Seliman around nothing too bad can happen; it'd be beyond his comprehension The author seems to make a point of contrasting him with the women he encounters mighty knowledgeable a
