~FREE DOWNLOAD ☺ Cyrano ⚇ A gallant solider, a sharp wit, and a man of letters, Cyrano de Bergerac seems like the obvious romantic hero He has just one noteworthy flaw an improbably large nose And after a lifetime of loving the beautiful Roxane from afar, Cyrano must find a way any way at all to express his feelings for her Romantic, funny, and action packed, this adaptation is sure to win a whole new legion of fans for Edmond Rostand s lovable soldier This book is probably the most beautiful piece of literature that I ve ever read I usually have a bit of a hard time understanding old english, but this was just so brilliantly done that I was able to get it The language used and the forms of speech was just breathtaking, and I know that it sounds exaggerated, but it s not It was funny, witty, and heartbreaking It just made me feel. This story has broken my heart twice in two days Cyrano is such a beautiful character Absolutely hilarious I was laughing from the very first words of the beginning chapter Cyrano is the sort of full of himself character which somehow manages to be sincere and endearing rather than obnoxious and an absolute blow gut He s the sort of friend everyone would like to have for any occasion.I confess that I have not yet read the play for which this book is based off of, so I can neither commend nor frown at the Author for any particular liberties she might have taken But from what I Absolutely hilarious I was laughing from the very first words of the beginning chapter Cyrano is the sort of full of himself character which somehow manages to be sincere and endearing rather than obnoxious and an absolute blow gut He s the sort of friend everyone would like to have for any occasion.I confess that I have not yet read the play for which this book is based off of, so I can neither commend nor frown at the Author for any particular liberties she might have taken But from what I do know of the original story, Geraldine McCaughrean did a splendid job in its retelling without changing anything Cyrano has always been a stage stealing character, and the Author only brings himto life, and ending everything tragically without leaving the Reader feeling disappointed.Two thumbs for Cyrano I have now read this book twice and it interester and entertained me both times The character of Cyrano was a great one and the story ended sadly but some how satisfyingly Recommend it very much. this is one of the most beautiful novels I ve ever read I was in tears by the end, and I haven t cried over a book in years it s a short book it only took me a hour or so to read but so much beauty is crammed into it forget it s a YA book, and just read it I can t recommend this enough. 2.6 stars I picked up this book because I read McCaughrean s 2005 book The White Darkness and it is one of my favourite books of all time I wanted to see what else McCaughrean has written Romeo and Juliet can be a painful read, because you know it s a tragedy, you know it will end poorly I felt the same about Cyrano, except I wasn t familiar with the story so I didn t know in which way it would end poorly It was painful to read about all this longing and heartbreak Cyrano de Bergerac was a 2.6 stars I picked up this book because I read McCaughrean s 2005 book The White Darkness and it is one of my favourite books of all time I wanted to see what else McCaughrean has written Romeo and Juliet can be a painful read, because you know it s a tragedy, you know it will end poorly I felt the same about Cyrano, except I wasn t familiar with the story so I didn t know in which way it would end poorly It was painful to read about all this longing and heartbreak Cyrano de Bergerac was a real person in history, but he was immortalised in the 1897 play bearing his name, written by Edmond Rostand McCaughrean s retelling is of Rostand s play, not Cyrano s real life It took me a while to realise that s what made me unable to truly connect with the characters, even though I read it as audiobook with a full cast The writing is poetic, the characters are three dimensional and interesting, there is action and comedy and suspense but I miss the little things The small every day details That s what made this retelling feel superficial for me, and that s my main complaint I really wishpeople would pick this up and give it a read It is a quick retelling of a classic tale It s a very short and doesn t take long to read, and I honestly couldn t put it down until I finished It is absolutely hilarious, and actually made me laugh aloud often, its utterly romantic and the language used is beautiful It may not be the usual genre you may read, but I would seriously recommend you give a few short hours of time to this story.
