Book Review: The Dream Lover

The Dream Lover: A Novel of George SandThe Dream Lover: A Novel of George Sand by Elizabeth Berg

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Dream Lover by Elizabeth Berg is a historical fiction about the life of George Sands. It tells the story about this ones woman’s family secrets and her many romantic affairs. Overall, I would give this book a 3.5. It was not quite good enough to rank it 4 stars. I liked that the main character was a scandalous woman, especially for her time period; she would say what every was on her mind, dress in men’s clothes and smoke cigars. But some of the characters were not well developed and you don’t really get to know them. I also think the title is completely off, the main character seems to have a lot of disappointment in her affairs, and I don’t see how the “dream lover” is… The last hundred pages became a little tedious to read, and it became hard to finish reading the book. I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
