Details

"The Scarlet Pimpernel is a fantastic adventure story in the Romantic mode, but it also feels like a precursor to the modern comic book superheroes. The protagonist has a secret identity--a mild-mannered alter-ego who masks the true, heroic qualities of the main character. The Scarlet Pimpernel is fantastically plotted, with a full-steam-ahead plot that drags its readers from the center of London society to a dark night on the coast of France. The book barely lets us pause for breath." from classiclit.about.com
