Amazon.de

Lady Serena Carlow is an acknowledged beauty, but she's got a temper as fiery as her head of red hair. When her father dies unexpectedly, Serena discovers to her horror that she has been left a ward of Ivo Barrasford, marquis of Rotherham, a man whom Serena once jilted and who now has the power to give or withhold his consent to any marriage she might contemplate. With her father's heir eager to take over his inheritance--and Serena's lifelong home--she and her lovely young stepmother, Fanny, decide to move to Bath, where Serena makes an odd new friend and discovers an old love, Major Hector Kirkby. Before long, Serena, Fanny, Kirkby, and Rotherham are entangled in a welter of misunderstood emotions, mistaken engagements, and misdirected love.

Georgette Heyer's genius has always been in creating memorable characters, then placing them in a comedy of manners that is absolutely true to the Regency period. Bath Tangle is a delightful romp through the haute ton of early-19th-century England, and the battling, passionate, meant-for-each-other Ivo and Serena are one of her most successful romantic duos. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

"Bath Tangle" ist ein typischer Georgette-Heyer-Roman voller Romantik, Abenteuer und Witz. Die Charaktere sind absolut liebenswert ohne stereotyp zu wirken. Mit viel Liebe zum Detail erschafft Georgette Heyer eine Regency-Atmosphäre mit allem, was dazugehört: herrschaftliche Anwesen, tolle Kleider und schnelle Pferde. Wie üblich wird die Romantik nicht zu sehr breitgetreten, das Hauptaugenmerk liegt vielmehr auf herrlich witzigen Dialogen und komischen Szenen.

Format: Taschenbuch
Georgette Heyers vielfältige Charaktere haben mir von jeher so gut gefallen wie die liebevoll gezeichneten Schilderungen der vornehmen englischen Welt des 18. Jahrhunderts. Nicht allein dank der detaillierten Beschreibungen der Einrichtungen bis zu der Kleidung eines Dandys, Landedelmanns und "Nonsuch" über die verschiedenen Zeitperioden hinweg fühlt man sich mitten im Geschehen, in der Zeit und den fremden Orten. Dazu noch eine romantische Liebesgeschichte, vielleicht ein bisschen Aufregung, Verfolgungsjagden und coole englische Gentlemen - und mein Lesevergnügen war perfekt.
In Bath Tangle zeichnet sie allerdings weniger sympathische Hauptcharaktere, beide sind überheblich (ohne jedoch arrogant zu sein), jähzornig, streitlustig und eigensinnig bis zur absoluten Dickköpfigkeit. Als Gegenpol hat sie noch zwei andere Charaktere geschaffen, beide voll Freundlichkeit, Sanftheit und einem Sinn für wahrhaftig gutes Benehmen. Ergänzt wird dieses Charakterkonglomerat noch durch eine selbstbewusst Großmutter, die reich aber nicht bon ton ist, pläneschmiedende Mütter und aufmüpfige junge Dandys. allein die Mischung macht es aber nicht aus. Es ist die sehr einfühlsame Beschreibung der Charaktere, die erkennen lässt, wieso jemand wie handelt, die sich ihrer Schwächen bewusst sind und sie doch nicht immer überwinden können. Psychologische Charakterstudien vom feinsten! Dazu noch geschliffene Dialoge (die ich in anderen Romanen wie z.B. "Die widerspenstige Witze" noch mehr genossen habe. Allerdings waren sie hier eben auch den Charakteren angepasst.

GH has done it with great humor 29. Januar 2003
Von "turbofamily" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In spite of the negative reviews posted prior to this one, I must give this book a thumbs up. I've read this story several times, and each time I gathered new details and discovered a funny line I didn't remember from the previous reading.
Heyer's style of writing, as usual, is sophisticated and informative. The details in any of her books make you inquire more deeply into the period of which she writes.
Personally, I LOVED Rotherham and Serena -- perhaps it's because I'm a bit tempermental myself. The clash between them and eventual realization of their respect and love is amusing. The twist in plot by the end makes for an endearing read. The reader does feel a sort of short-circuited denoument to the story by the time Rotherham and Serena realize their love - one awaits more - though it's not necessarily a drawback (Austen's own writings reflect similar tendencies).
It is not a fast-paced story, but watching the love develop in this story makes me think of a dawn. The sun rising over the horizon has never been a quick event, though it is always a beautiful setting with incredible shades of color to add the most intriguing character to our day.

worth reading 24. Mai 2004
Von tregatt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Lady Serena Carlow is beside herself with anger when she discovers that her late father (the Earl of Spenborough) has placed her squarely under the Marquess of Rotherham's thumb. For the late earl has made Rotherham the sole trustee of his only daughter's wealth, and Lady Serena will have to gain Rotherham's approval for everything from frivolous purchases to permission to marry. For most young women of sense, such a will would be trying, but for the passionate and fiery tempered Lady Serena, the state of affairs is truly intolerable, esp since she and Rotherham were once engaged to be married before she broke off the engagement in a fit of anger. Soon, however, even the indignity of having to cope with Rotherham as a guardian is nothing compared to having to watch her cousin assume her dead father's place. Hoping to seek some relief from the fit of doldrums that she's sunk into, Lady Serena proposes that she and her young stepmother, Fanny, go to Bath. Hopefully a change of scene and new friends and divertments will restore both their flagging spirits. What neither lady counted on was how the reappearance of one lady's old beau would so entangle things...
Truth to tell, "Bath Tangle" may not be everyone's cup of tea. Lady Serena's quick and fiery temper and her high-handed ways could really set one's back up -- and Rotherham is no different! Certainly, Lady Serena is the type of heroine I usually have very little empathy for -- all that emotion and high drama! And yet, who else but Georgette Heyer could pen a romance novel about a high-handed and stubborn heroine and her equally autocratic swain, and still make us care and root for them to achieve their happily ever-after ending? And as usual, one can count on Heyer's wonderful prose style, together with her brilliant character portrayals, witty dialogue, vivid imagery and smooth pacing to be sure of a memorable and worthwhile read. All in all, a novel not to be missed!

Enjoyable 24. Dezember 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
On the whole I enjoy this story, although I can see why some readers have a hard time with Serena and Rotherham. I can take them because they are both decent people at heart, in spite of their faults. And their clashes of temper can be fun to watch! The one thing I find really unacceptable is the scene where Serena berates Emily. If you've read the book, you know the scene I mean. (Rotherham also berates Gerard, but he has a purpose. Serena means it.)
I also like the romance that blossoms between Fanny and the man she least expects.
Heyer makes one of her favorite points with both couples, one that is probably snobbish but has some truth to it, about the importance of similar "background" (class).
Serena and Rotherham were both born to the ruling class. Through the story the reader sees that Serena will never be happy outside that world. It's too much a part of who she is.
Hector, Serena's old flame, was born to the more modest rank of "landed gentry" and doesn't want her life. Neither does Fanny, Serena's friend. The life Hector can give her is exactly the kind that makes her happy.
In Heyer's eyes, it is this clash of background and values that makes Hector and Serena wrong for each other. It is the similarity of background/ values that makes both couples right for each other.
The study of Regency manners here is rewarding if you pay attention.
Serena and her Aunt Teresa are a portrait of aristocratic ladies: how they spoke, thought, and gossiped, and what they gossiped about. Fanny, Hector and his mother show the manners and values of the landed middle class, Jane Austen's level of society. Mrs. Floore and Ned Goring represent the up-and-coming merchant class (though Mrs. Floore is really more caricature.)
One problem is that GH makes many elliptical references to political events of the time. Her original readers probably knew what she meant. For the modern reader it's frustrating--she tells just enough to make you curious. It needs footnotes.
The story is well written and plotted. Though it is complicated, everything is kept tangled until the end. Not as easy to do as it seems. It's worth reading for the portrait of Regency life, and several vivid characters, even if you don't like Serena and Rotherham.

Old flames tangle and fight their way to love - brilliant! 7. Mai 2000
Von Dr W. Richards - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I love Bath Tangle! Heyer writes a hero and heroine who are both strong-willed and impatient, and who have been indulged for most of their lives. As such, it's only natural that they should behave like an irresistable force meeting an immovable object.
Serena and Rotherham had once been engaged to be married, but she called off the engagement within a month of the wedding. Since then, they'd barely been able to meet without arguing. But then her father died and left Rotherham trustee of all her income, and with the power to veto any potential husband. Thus the scene is set for yet more sparks....
Rotherham and Serena are a wonderful couple: even from the time we first meet them it's obvious they were meant for each other. It's there in the way they can't keep their eyes off each other, the way she's bored when he's not around, the way they can't stop interfering in each other's affairs. Yes, they are both rude - to each other, and occasionally to others - but that's true to the period, at least in Rotherham's case. I can't see how the other reviewer could have missed the attraction between them.
The dialogue is fast-paced and sparkling, with great fights and some wonderful making-up scenes. In all, it's another immensely readable Heyer, although I would have liked to know more about the circumstances surrounding the original engagement. Still - can't have it all!

Not quite Beatrice and Benedick 10. April 2009
Von Winter Maiden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book may be best thought of as Heyer's take on "Much Ado About Nothing," where the "merry war" of a man and a woman--once engaged and now volatile friends--leads inevitably to the altar. Unfortunately, off-putting characters and forced plotting make this one of Heyer's least successful books.

Of the brawling hero and heroine, Serena is easier to like because we often see events through her eyes and because we are told why she is the way she is. (Told too often, in fact, rather than being shown. There's a LOT of character exposition in this book. I have the feeling Heyer felt the need to make excuses for her heroine.) Ivo, on the other hand, is a bad-tempered jerk, without explanation or leavening. He also sexually menaces a timid virgin--with an ulterior motive, but still. . .

For all that, there were a number of characters and situations I did enjoy. Hector, like the Man with the Mumps in "The Grand Sophy," is one of those Heyer second-lead gentlemen who has enough grace, intelligence, and humor to be appealing in his own right. (And in this book, he's more appealing than the nominal hero, but clearly less a temperamental match for the heroine.) And, really, the whole book is worth the appearance of Mrs. Floore, one of the rare "vulgar" characters in Heyer who is sympathetically portrayed and one of the most delightful cases of the deus ex machina I've come across. There are in fact a number of very funny moments, and they come along often enough to keep the reader's interest.

There is more than usual in this book about the social world of which Serena and Ivo are a part. We don't see that world first hand, but glimpse it via letters and conversations. As another reviewer suggested, it can be distracting if you don't know the personalities being referred to. It didn't bother me, particularly, and I was tickled by the discussion about Caroline Lamb. I also felt that the gossip about the ton--which even Ivo engages in--underlined how much the lead pair enjoy being a part of that world, and how suited to one another they really are.

If Serena and Ivo are meant to be Heyer's Beatrice and Benedick, Heyer fails to provide her characters with the right notes of charm and wit. Heyer does succeed, however, in persuading me that Serena is the goddess (in both good and bad ways) that she says she is. And it is amusing to imagine Serena and Ivo as an important political couple, given how volatile they are. I see some future wit remarking that one man's Caroline Lamb is another man's Serena Rotherham.
