Review: The Dream Lover: A Novel of George Sand

The Dream Lover: A Novel of George Sand The Dream Lover: A Novel of George Sand by Elizabeth Berg
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A powerful novel about the life of French novelist George Sand, her famous lovers, untraditional Parisian lifestyle, and bestselling novels in Paris during the 1830s and 40s. After leaving her husband, she moved to Paris where she focused on writing. She wore men’s clothes, smoked cigars, and had love affairs with many famous men and a woman.

It was hard to get into. The writing style is off putting and the pace is slow, but the content is interesting. I think if the author wrote it in biographical style with a third person narrative, it would have been a lot easier and enjoyable to read. Overall, not a bad book.
