Book review: The pursuit of love

The pursuit of love by Nancy Mitford

This book is about finding true love and dealing with the war. The book is based on Nancy Mitford's one family and is read through the eyes of Fanny. The family Radlett's main character in this book is Linda. 

Linda is a romantic lady and loves to fall in love with the hero of the story. Unconventionally, she marries two times and falls in love three times. Her first husband is a Tory politician, her second husband a Communist and the last person she falls in love with, a Duke named Fabrice. 

The reason I started this book is because Jamie Cullum sings a song "Love ain't gonna let you down" which has the line "I'll be your Fabrice without the war" in it. I found out this is referring to this book. 

The book is an oldie but goodie. If you love reading books like "Pride and Prejudice", "Whutering Heights" and "Jane Austen", this will fit right in. I would certainly recommend this book, just don't listen to the song right before reading this book, because I kept singing the song whilst reading.

I'll give this 4 out of 5 stars.

Would you read this book? Do you love books in this genre?
