Though I actually liked the movie with Anthony Andrews and Jane Seymour more than the book (a first I think), the book was rather good. In a novel that I'm writing, I've adopted the name Dewhurst as tribute to Baroness Orczy. A good story Baroness.

But, I think she could have stood to have learned the concept of the paragraph.

I've heard a lot of people on the forum insult the book and discuss how dreadful they thought it was, but I enjoyed it. I've read much better books, but I've also read much worse.

I laughed. I was put in suspense. I don't regret reading it.

Most importantly, I'm happy that the book inspired you to write. :)

Heh, the 'concept of the paragraph'. A lot of writers back then didn't use them very often.

To be honest, the Scarlet Pimpernel is one of my favorite books and stories off all time. I'd been hearing about it a couple of years ago and checked it out from the library, fell in love, and read all the sequels I could get my grubby paws on. Unfortunately lots of the sequels are only available in the UK...*is sad*
