    Ross Poldark, published in 1945, tells the story of Ross, a British man in his twenties, from the time he returns from the war in America in 1783 until about four years later It s the first of a series of a dozen Poldark books that has spawned a couple of BBC miniseries, one in 1975 and a remake in 2015 I think it s safe to say that Ross v 2.0 was a serious upgrade.Ross is landed gentry, but not particularly wealthy In fact, he s skirting the edge of poverty, and his father had let their home an [...]

    I ve been hearing a lot about the new Poldark TV series that s being filmed for the BBC and thought the multi generational saga sounded like something I d enjoy, so I decided to give the first book a read I m so glad I did I was instantly drawn into the story of Ross Poldark, the young officer who returns to Cornwall after fighting in the Revolutionary War, sporting a scar on his face and a limp, to find that his father is dead, his family home is in ruins, and his love, the beautiful and gentee [...]

    These books are totally under rated Although they may be slightly trashy Pre Victorian love stories, so was Jane Eyre when it was written Graham is a very good writer and these books are full of powerful and descriptive pros which ignite the imagination even if said imagination is that of a hopeless romantic who watches too much Masterpiece Theater and too many Lifetime movies As the title suggests, it is a saga melodramatic like Gone with the Wind, but like Gone with the Wind it is good history [...]

    4.5 rounded up.I couldn t resist this book has a picture of Aidan Turner on its cover Seriously, I have loved watching the Poldark series on PBS and I find the book it is based on to be just as interesting and fulfilling I will be reading the entire book series, although at what pace I am not sure.Book 1 deals with Ross Poldark, who comes home to England Cornwall, no less from the American Revolution to find that his father has died, his land is in complete disrepair, and his love is about to ma [...]

    This site is called and this book, together with the eleven other Poldark novels which follow it, is one of the best reads you could possibly find Winston Graham is not just a good writer he is in in my view a great writer He has all the gifts and skills you could possibly want in a novelist he creates wonderful, well drawn characters, he has a brilliant, accurate ear for dialogue, he writes beautiful, concise description, he creates dramatic, page turning plots what could you want The plots of [...]

    Long story short, this book and the next five in the series have been on my shelves for 13 years I remember when and where I bought them, but not why This was way before the recent PBS series, and way before I joined GR, but I must have heard about them in some way Despite being mass market paperbacks, I have lugged them around with me from house to house, from NC to SC, intending to read them at some point.Last year I resolved to read any 2017 book purchase before year s end, and was fairly suc [...]

    Rating 3.5 starsThe BBC recently aired their new version of Poldark, and whilst I and a nation of women went gaga for the brooding and shirtless Aidan Turner oh dear God drool , I also adored the beautiful Eleanor Tomlinson and the sizzling chemistry they had together When Ross and Demelza fell first in passion the dress scene swoon and then in love the singing scene sigh , so did I with them Just gorgeous Away from the TV show, the first book in the series, Ross Poldark, took a while to get goi [...]

    I have a shameful confession Other than a few notable exceptions Tolstoy, Anthony Trollope, Jasper Fforde I rarely enjoy fiction written by men I can t even discuss it without resorting to stereotypes I would resent if it was women being lumped together, but if I was forced to say something it would be that even when I m intrigued by the stories male authors have to tell, their characterizations, particularly of women, tend to make my skin crawl.So while I ve been eagerly awaiting each TV episod [...]

    I used to think I hated historical fiction I ve since realized that what I hate is bad historical fiction In a lot of the historical fiction books I ve read, it seemed as if the author hated to waste the hours spent researching the period and instead, chose to incorporate what they d read in lengthy text book style asides about contextual events which really detracted from the novel itself However, since forming that impression I ve read some excellent historical fiction e.g Year of Wonders by G [...]

    5 second time around stars Loved the re read even than the first The sun had gone down, and the brows of the sky were dark.And Ross again knew himself to be happy in a new and less ephemeral way than before.He thought, If we could only stop life for a while I would stop here Not when I get home, not leaving Trenwith, but here, here reaching the top of the hill out of Sawle, dusk wiping out the edges of the land and Demelza walking and humming at my side.This has been such a fabulous audiobook a [...]

  17. Kris - My Novelesque Life

    I am a big fan of British mysteries, comedies and dramas so it is no surprise that I am a fan of Masterpiece Theater I recorded Poldark when it appeared on PBS and enjoyed the series, but did find it a bit on the slow side I heard that there was also another mini series done in the 1970s I knew that both were based on a book so I looked it up and saw that the first book was published in 1945 post world war II and the last book was published in 2002 I was really curious in reading Ross Poldark an [...]

    At first glance, it is easy to see why some modern readers might overlook Ross Poldark, the primogenial novel in Winston Graham s The Novels of Cornwall family saga Originally published in 1945, most seventy year old books are now long forgotten Its main character is a man when to appeal to its primary audience most historical fiction is carried by a female protagonist The setting can be off putting too It begins in 1783, a difficult and depressing time in English history after the loss of the A [...]

    Ross Poldark is historical drama romance that reads as realistic historical fiction not as romantic chic lit It has very realistic feel to it, mainly because all characters are flawed, multi dimensional and brilliantly written I really liked that I will take grey character over one dimensional one any day I love historical family sagas and Poss Poldark is a promising start to Poldark series I definitely plan t read next books very soon

    At 122 pages I m bailing It may be that I m just not in the mood I did enjoy the humor at the beginning but after a while the story kind of dragged I was hoping to feel a bit invested in the characters as well but it never really happened for me oh well Cant win them all But looking at all the 5 star reviews I think there might be something wrong with melolThe shame is that I own the first three books in the series with the nice covers and now don t know if I ll ever read them

  22. Kimberly Carrington-Fox

    Una agradable sorpresa, especialmente por el modo de narrar la historia, muy gil y sin entretenerse en dar excesivos detalles.Me ha encantado Ross, es el tipo de hombre que levanta una ceja y me sube las enaguas hasta las orejas.Muy recomendable si quieres unas enaguas no guarrers pero con un protagonista digno de ellas.

  23. Maddie (Heart Full Of Books)

    This was SO GOOD I m 100% in love with the TV show, and I was surprised at how much this felt like watching the first half, when everything is good and Ross is first falling in love with Demelza Ross and Demelza are such an OTP, I can t wait to read and watch

    After binge watching the show, I decided that I should probably pick up the book about the story that has so captivated me I found the book to be quite enjoyable To me it read very much like the show in the beginning of the novel and then it shifted towards the middle to something new and fresh I love how the books always provide a larger window into the world of the author, so than a show or a movie could ever do Although it took me awhile to finish this book, it is a very quick read the words [...]
