The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

This book was nothing like what I thought it would be about. I thought it would be Englishmen in the Victorian era roaming and partying through Europe and having drunken adventures. It turned out to have mystery, real adventure, running from bad guys, highway robbers, circus folk, pirates, hidden treasure, etc. And the main character, Monty, is hilarious. Such a rake. It is a 500 page book and the adventure doesn’t really start until 85 to 100 pages in. There was also moments that touched on racism, gender inequality, and homophobia that made this book a little more meaningful and deeper than I thought it would be. Another great pick that I would have never read if it had not been in my Owlcrate box.

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads and Amazon.
