White ☆ 6 review review Mistress Masham's Repose ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Lilliput first seen in Gulliver's Travels in exile Safely hidden for centuries the Lilliputians are at first endangered by Maria's well meaning but clumsy attempts to make their lives easier but their situation grows truly ominous when they are discovered by Maria's greedy guardians who look at The People and see only a bundle of mone There are spoilers ahead so beware25 STARSWhen I m started this book I thought it had such promise The first sentences drew me right in and filled me with the giddy excitement of a bibliophile who thinks they ve found a literary treasure Maria was ten years old She had dark hair in two pigtails and brown eyes the color of marmite but shiny She wore spectacles for the time being though sine would not have to wear them always and her nature was a loving one She was one of those tough and friendly people who do things first and think about them afterward Unfortunately she was an orphan which made her difficulties complicated than they were with other people She lived in an enormous house in the wilds of Northamptonshire which was about four times larger than the Buckingham Palace but was falling down The illustrations are GORGEOUS Unfortunately my interest began to wane right around page 50 or so when the Schoolmaster began describing the People s history of how they came to Mistress Masham s Repose at Malplauet The chapter following the People s history lesson begins Maria could not help feeling relieved when the History was over Her head was buzzing with capital letters and she secretly thought that it as fun to ask uestions instead of listening to lectures The story steadily grows ridiculous and hard to follow as time goes on There were a lot of references to England s history that I just didn t understand since I m from the United States Maybe I would have enjoyed the story better if I had understood the references but I doubt it The Professor was an interesting character His forgetfulness and inability to take things seriously was aggravating Every once in a while he would give Maria good advice but most of the time he was bogged down with figuring out the meaning of an obscure Latin word Tripharium or daydreaming about food I read on Wikipedia JK Rowling loosely based Dumbledore off the Professor s character I m glad she did a much better job creating a like able characterAs the story progresses both Maria and the Professor daydream about the People Maria dreams of providing them a safe place to live and all the ways she can make their lives better The Professor dreams up a scheme of capturing a Brobdingnagian which made absolutely no sense to me In retrospect it might have behooved me to read Gulliver s Travels I just have no desire to do so at this time The ending felt a bit rushed and the additional characters of the Lord Lieutenant and PC Dumbledum were utterly ridiculous I felt like the story became almost farcical and left me wondering why I had forced myself to continue reading in the first place I was so excited about the possibilities of this book and hate that my expectations fell flatMy review is brutal so I apologize in advance to all of those who adore Mistress Masham s Repose Other reviewers do a great job of pointing out the good in this book I just wanted to shed some light on my disappointment and why this book didn t win my praises
