    The original Swedish title is Drottningens juvelsmycke and this has also been translated to English as The ueen's Tiara It's a 19th century Swedish classic a historical novel that takes place in the late 18th century right before during and after the assasination of the King Gustav III The reader is treated to an almost heady mix of conspiracies romantic entanglements theft death and danger The book also has cross dressing and mistaken identities to rival a Shakespeare comedy In other words it's hugely entertaining but likely to irk those who prefer their books to be strictly realisticAlmvist's writing is also a mix of styles and genres He doesn't follow any rules and can change scenery and tone fast enough to make your head spin I loved that but can see why it could get exhausting for other readers

    Even though I had trouble finishing this novel at all I'm still giving it three stars because there were things I really liked I found the character of Tintomara an androgyne whom nobody can help falling in love with very attractive as well as a lot of the relationship messes around her And the novel had a lot of interesting uirky stuff But somehow it didn't keep the story very well together and much of the interesting potential in the story was lost and watered down into pointless meandering Parts of the book were uite gripping and parts were so slow and meaningless I could scarcely bother continuing I found the parts of the story focused on the ueen's diadem in the title uite superfluous and found the novel would have been much improved by choosing something else as a plot perhaps just focusing heavingly on the King's murder on the one hand and Tintomara's charm and strange androgyneousness on the other and forgetting about the stuff with the jewel The mixtures of different styles epistolary novel play format etc can be interesting in moderation but went too far here making the book very confusing to read at all Of course Almvist was uite an early experimenter in such stuff so perhaps one mustn't be too harsh with him at least he had the courage to try something unusual

    Over Sweden's capital hovered the foul genius of regicide Above its wings were black as a midnight in March; beneath red as the flames bursting out in a theatre at a masueradeTranslated from the Swedish by Paul Britten Austin First line'Two things are white Tintomara Innocence and arsenic'image error


  4. Blue Blue says:

    This was written almost 200 hundred years ago and is progressive when it comes to intersextrans characters than a lot of contemporary things I have readIt is by no means perfect and at times it does come across a little phobic in ways but given it was written almost 200 years ago I'm not going to hold that against the book as I tend to read books and watch films within the context of the time they were made rather than looking at them completely from the eyes of today


  5. Mady Mady says:

    This turned out to be better than I at first expected it to be The first 100 pages where almost unbearably boring but it got a lot better once Tintomara appeared


  6. Lovisa Lovisa says:

    The book took me ages to read despite being relatively short The writing makes many jumps both between scenes and writing styles and is just generally confusing If the main character hadn't been so interesting I'd've given this book two stars only


  7. Lohengrin Lohengrin says:

    Although I'm giving it three starts my opinion of this book is definitely mixed the first 50 pages or so consist of unbearably overdone prose but then there is a radical shift in style and even format with the appearance of Tintomara The author skilfully blends the political conspiracies with Tintomara's story and is good at creating convincingly sinister characters in Magistrate Liljensparre and in Reuterholm The portrayal of the androgynous Tintomara a character utterly indifferent to any issues of gender is both frank and tasteful

    This is a weird old thing but glorious anyway ueer in several ways

    I ended up liking it than I first expected I especially enjoyed Tintomara as a character It was still uite long and boring though and I might have skimmed a lot
