An early Georgette Heyer, quite different than her Regency comedies. Fun bot not my favorite. A must if you enjoy Heyer and the middle ages.
I'll be blunt. I picked up this book because Stephen Fry recommended the author. I chose My Lord John because the subtitle under her name reads "Her Last and Greatest Novel". If this truly was her greatest novel, I'm sorry. But it's also incomplete and I've no idea how much more editing was to be done.
I'm not one for long, unbroken paragraphs, but Heyer's style, in this book, kept my interest because they weren't dull descriptions. She charges through history, stopping only for bits of dialogue and reflectance by our hero Prince John.
If you enjoy historical fiction, you might enjoy this book. I probably will never read it again, please get it off my bookshelf, but nor will I discount all of GH's novels due to the incomplete nature of this novel.
