Uncle Bernac: A Memory of the Empire
Looking for a replacement to Sherlock Holmes after the author had killed him off in 1894, Doyle wrote this murder mystery in the dying years of the 19th century. Set in Napoleon's era, it involves a Frenchman returning to his native land to join the Emperor's ranks. (Summary by Cathy Barratt) (4 hr 39 min)
good read but too short
memory of an emperor
Well read, pleasant historically rich saga of the influence of Bonaparte in his element by an intelligent and gallant observer. ACD invents another clever tale in a novel and different context...
Great Conan Doyle
What a great book! I have enjoyed listening to some of Conan Doyle's books OTHER than Sherlock Holmes. This is a great one - very well read, and with some interesting insights into what it meant to be French in the time of Napoleon.
