Publisher's Summary

A tour-de-force of historical imagination, this is the story of three young men at the dawn of the French Revolution. Georges-Jacques Danton: zealous, energetic, debt-ridden. Maximilien Robespierre: small, diligent, and terrified of violence. And Camille Desmoulins: a genius of rhetoric, charming, handsome, but erratic and untrustworthy.
As these key figures of the French Revolution taste the addictive delights of power, they must also come to face the horror that follows.

Too Long

I loved Mantel's Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies so I was keen to see what she would do with the French Revolution. Unfortunately I never found out the ending it is just way way too long.
