    1 thought on “The Way of an Eagle

    1. This was wonderful. I think I found a new favorite author to collect. :)Who would have thought it possible to root for a hero described as small, yellow, wrinkly like a monkey, and with pale, fluttering eyelashes? Over the top or what? But somehow, Ethel M. Dell makes you care and see the inner person. It was refreshing.There are conflicting descriptions of this author's works, some call them Christian, along the lines of Grace Livingstone Hill. Others say her books are early bodice rippers. Bot [...]

    2. Oh, this was was marvelous, fantabulous, beautiful and absolutely one of the best books I've read this year!Nick, our hero, is described as being hideous and it's no wonder the heroine, Meryl is terrified of him, allowing her imagination run away with her. What will it take for her to see his true self underneath his ugly physique? We start off the story during a siege in India, Meryl is with her father and his regiment and they have found that without reinforcements they can only hold out a few [...]

    3. An original great love story.When one wants to write a book of love that will take a breath away, that will be memorable, one must do at least one of the things:1) put the plot in the interesting times or/and places2) construct good (real) characters3) invent an original story.When a book has all of these you can be sure you will not regret if you read it. This is the case with "The Way of an Eagle". From the beginning (from the concept of an eagle circling over someone who he wants to have) to [...]

    4. Wow. Intense. And I'm stingy with my 5-stars, so, yes, it was GOOD.(Thanks, those who read this before me and reviewed it so glowingly! It was worth it!)It's British-occupied India, and the natives are besieging the fort. There's one English girl there--the general's daughter Muriel. Between starvation and attack, death is almost certain. The general gathers his few remaining men and asks which of them has nerve enough to protect Muriel to the bitter end. Nick Ratcliffe is the only one to volunt [...]

    5. An English Brigadier-General surrounded by rebellious Indians and certain of his own death entrusts the care of his young daughter to one of his soldiers. This soldier, named Nick Ratcliffe, has a seemingly frivolous character but in essence has a strong enough "nerve" to be entrusted with the commission, even if it should entail he has to "shoot her before your own last moment comes".Before it should come to that, Ratcliffe tricks the terrified daughter, Muriel Roscoe, into escaping the siege w [...]

    6. Based upon previous reviews, I had high hopes for this book. Well, those were shattered by page one. Poorly written, weak plot, sexist and racist character stereotypes. The plot would not even make a bad Lifetime movie. Waste of time.

    7. I love this book. Ethel Dell loves to write about the most unlikely of heroes to take a man that some may think to be insignificant, not good-looking enough, and show you that man's most beautiful soul. I think that is why I love this book so much. I have read it many times.

    8. A mild adventure with most of the plot rotating around two characters and their on-again, off-again romance until the happy ending. I really liked the characters, pretty much all of them. I tired a bit of the woman and her vacillating. Loved that not only are marriage and honor sacred and respected, but that only one character was lost, and he a bit of an expendable softie. This is the kind of book that would help someone recover from an overdose of Russian lit. It had trouble holding my attenti [...]

    9. I don't know that I can give a true review because when I ordered the book, I received a condensed version. Now, that could be actually good or bad. The main problem for me with this book (that really gets my goat no matter what book/author/movie I find it in) is that the girl is soooooo useless and personality-less that I just wonder why in the world the hero would have fallen for her in the first place. If the writing in the original version was really good, maybe I would have 'felt' her chara [...]

    10. fast read, requires little effort, with story line that while easy to predict ending, held my interest

    11. To be perfectly honest, had I known that this book was partially set in colonial India, I would have not agreed to buddy read it. It takes a good writer to write from the perspective of the colonizer in a way I find appealing, but this book didn't even try to humanize the natives or create anything worth reading. This book is a romance novel, but one that has flat, stock characters that just fall in love out of the blue and it's just way too long. Not an enjoyable read.
