Overall, the book was fun. Interesting characters, mad adventures, happily ever after. That said, it could have been about 15% shorter, and i found myself resenting some of the flowery language that weighed down the narrative. ( )

Wow... the hype was actually deserved. Is it the bestest book evah? No but it was such a good time! And. . Ugh rarely do I read about about biracial people like me and don't get a eyetwitch because of the description. But this... ugh. I have tears in my eye because it was so well done. And yes the word negroes is used. But ugh it was done so well. No eye twitch!

Now I can't say anything about the catalonian (?) culture. But I enjoyed the distinction between catalonia and Spain.

Ugh the hype was actually real... perfect book to reread on a rainy day when you need a pick me up story. ( )

I would actually give this a 3.5 or maybe a 3.75 if I could (not quite up to 4 stars for me). I did really enjoy it though. The first 75-100 pages were a little slow for me as far as grabbing my interest, and I actually considered DNFing until I reached the "Highwaymen". I am glad that I didn't though because it turned out to be a really cute story and I became invested in these characters.

The main character Monty is on his Grand Tour of Europe with his sister Felicity and his best friend Percy who he is secretly in love with. At first Monty's character was just a slightly annoying privileged playboy, but throughout the story he grew so much and became this really endearing character that you just couldn't help but love. Percy is such a kind and patient friend who really cares more for others than himself, and Felicity is so much more than anyone gives her credit for. She is tough, resourceful, and so very smart. These 3 found themselves in all kinds of trouble. Once you thought they found a way out of one kind of trouble, they would find themselves in some other kind of trouble! ( )

Perfectly paced and perfectly humorous! Our MC Monty is understandably flawed and I would die for him. The drama and romance was killer in this book and I’m so glad I finally got around to reading it! ( )

After reading so many good things about this book for months now, my expectations were quite high and I am happy to say it didn’t disappoint. I had a lot of fun and there were quite a few laugh out loud moments which is such a refreshing change from all the intense fantasy books that I usually read.

Monty maybe a self-absorbed, slightly narcissistic rake, but he is so full of charm that I couldn’t help but like him. Being in his head the whole time, we get to know all his insecurities and uncertainties and get to see a vulnerable side to him that he doesn’t really show to others. There were times when I wanted to shake him and make him see some sense, but then I also felt bad for him. Percy is his best friend whom he has secretly been in love with for quite awhile. Percy is the one person in his life who is calm and composed and keeps him grounded. Their relationship is so wonderful with their quiet understanding, meaningful silences and just so much love for each other even if they are unable to express it properly.

Felicity is a fiery feminist in the 18th century who has strong opinions, is very smart and wants to pursue medicine, but is not allowed due to the restrictions on women. At the beginning, they don’t really have a warm sibling relationship but as they travel together, it was great to see them get to know each other in a different light, away from the judgmental eye of their father. The scene where Monty tries to explain his sexuality to Felicity and she tries to understand him but can’t really accept it as natural is very poignant.

The whole journey includes some very unrealistic (borderline fantastical) encounters with highwaymen, pirates, alchemists and sinking islands but this book is about what they learn about themselves and each other through the journey. The love story is absolutely adorable and I really wish there was an epilogue about their later life. The dialogue is part cheesy part sassy but extremely entertaining, however, the author uses this same light tone to touch on difficult topics like homophobia, racism, privilege, sexism, mental health stigma and abuse. But ultimately this is a coming of age story of Monty – him growing up and learning to understand and care for others, realizing what is most important in his life and gaining the confidence to go for it. And find his true happiness!!!! ( )

He saunter’d Europe round,

And gather’d ev’ry vice on Christian ground; . . .

The Stews and Palace equally explored,

Intrigued with glory, and with spirit whored;

Tried all hors-d’œuvres, all liqueurs defined,

Judicious drank, and greatly daring dined.

—Alexander Pope, The Dunciad

Let me put it like this. In this place, whoever looks seriously about him and has eyes to see is bound to become a stronger character.
—Goethe, Italian Journey
