    Review ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ð Elizabeth Foyster Elizabeth Foyster Ð 6 Characters E–pub/E–book [The Trials of the King of Hampshire Madness Secrecy and Betrayal in Georgian England] uite the uirkiest slice of history I have ever read Brilliantly told this sadly true tale superbly exposes the rotten underbelly of British ‘society’ its falsehoods greed deceit and fear of individualism You can’t help but feel for the main character sinned against than sinning I fear A thoroughly enjoyable story with some truly hideous characters A fabulous read

Review The Trials of the King of Hampshire Madness Secrecy and Betrayal in Georgian England Elizabeth Foyster Ð 6 Characters The Trials of the King of Hampshire Madness Secrecy and Betrayal in Georgian England Review ✓ 6 Every family has its skeletons but in 1823 the grand Wallop family was about to share theirs with the world The 3rd earl of Portsmouth was a peculiar man but by most accounts a harmless one An aristocrat of enormous wealth he kept company with England’s most famous names inviting Jane Austen to balls and having Lord Byron as chief witness to his second marriage F. It must be exciting for any historian to discover a little known story with a huge collection of documentation to enable a detailed reconstruction And there s no doubting that the story of the 3rd Earl of Portsmouth s alleged madness is fascinating even if it tells us what we probably already know about the greed and ruthlessness of the Georgian upper and middle classes In addition it has a supporting cast that includes Jane Austen and her family Lord Byron and ueen CarolineMy difficulty with it is that Elizabeth Foyster drowns the reader under the sheer weight of her documentation which she then exacerbates by playing around with the time scale of the narrative to create suspense The result is a history that loses impact by being too strung out and repetitious particularly when it involves descriptions of Portsmouth s manic behaviour It s still well worth reading but like so many books these days could have done with some judicious editing

I was lucky enough to receive a free copy of this book through Goodreads Giveaways I have to admit at first I was very close to adding this book to my couldn t finish pile However I soon become engrossed in the story of the life and society of John Charles Wallop The book balances the unearthed arguments and evidence very well and like many of those alive at the time I couldn t say for certain whether the 3rd earl of Portsmouth was a lunatic or just weak minded The book is crammed with perverse sly and underhand persons with a perhaps a smattering of kind hearted folk Team this with an incredibly dysfunctional family and polarised opinions leads to a very interesting read
