Just finished this, my first Sabatini novel, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Entertaining, but not mentally vacuous. Themes of sincerity v hypocrisy, ideology v personal loyalty, class distinction v advancement by merit, and all set in the beginnings of the French Revolution.

Can't say more; Sara is still reading it...
