    One thought on “Uncle Bernac”

    1. Publicată în România cu excelent alesul titlu „O dramă sub Napoleon”, este una dintre cele mai bune cărți pe care le-am citit vreodată.

    2. I can see why Doyle was not quite satisfied with this novel; Napoleon completely overshadows the rest of the novel. There's a promising beginning with a young French aristocrat in exile receiving a mysterious invitation to join his uncle in France and enter into Napoleon's service. We're soon the realm of high adventure with mysterious meetings in desolate places, but once our hero finally meets the Emperor, a vast chunk of the novel is given over to a most vivid portrait of the Napoleonic court [...]

    3. half adventure story, half what would it be like to get to hang out with Napoleon fan fiction. loved the cameo from Brigadier Gerard

    4. I'm used to reading books written before 1900 or shortly after, and I'm accustomed to Conan Doyle. Even so, this book is so ridiculous, as if it were written by a Frenchman, not by a Briton. It really is as if it mocks the French writing style of the times before the Second Empire, with dialogues nobody would carry on this way, and with uselessly long descriptions. Typically French, only this time it's an English text. If you read it as a pubescent, maybe you'll find some charm in it, otherwise [...]

    5. I really like all the series of Sherlock Holmes . Each story contains a mystery that makes the reader curious and kept reading until the end . It's too late for me was just reading the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle . But I still enjoyed until now . Lots of serial story, I still read it until now .

    6. I didn't read it English, but in a beautiful Spanish translation by Manuel Machado, which I haven't been able to find here. Set up at the highest moments of Napoleon's glory, this exciting adventure novel lets us see how much respect Doyle had for Napoleon, overcoming the hatred and fear this historical figure caused traditionally among the Britons.

    7. This book is in reality two loosely cobbled together short stories. The adventures of Louis and Bernac and the story of life in Napolean's camp on the French Coast. It was a good read and I enjoyed it. But not one of Doyle's best.

    8. Mal eine etwas andere Novelle von ACD (eher historisch). Nichts desto trotz hat sie mir gut gefallen. Es gab zwei Handlungsstränge und man hätte sich hier evtl. wünschen können, dass er sich auf einen konzentriert.

    9. Great read, very quick, and the language is very engaging. Set in the early 19th century, it offers a very interesting character sketch of Napolean while also running you through a mystery that is gripping from start to finish. Very well done (and free on the Kindle).

    10. The novel was set during the Napoleonic era.Well, there is no detection involved, but there is a lot of adventure.A wonderful Sunday read!

    11. This is very good book, not because author is Arthur Conan Doyle, but because of gripping story, who`s kipping you intrigued till the end.

    12. Hmmm. Edition read: John Murray PaperbacksFirst published in this edition 1968This book is published by arrangement with the Estate of the late Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
