    Some of my friends in two different groups I'm in started reading this series so I thought, let me watch a little bit of the show on Prime. Um, yeah, then I decided I needed all of the books even though there is something going to happen that I didn't like but let the pictures do the talking =) *******LET ME JUST SAY THERE WILL BE SPOILERS*******Okay, so we have the beautiful Ross Poldark going off off to war thinking he would be coming home to his wonderful Elizabeth that he had fell in love w [...]

    Ross Poldark, published in 1945, tells the story of Ross, a British man in his twenties, from the time he returns from the war in America in 1783 until about four years later. It's the first of a series of a dozen Poldark books that has spawned a couple of BBC miniseries, one in 1975 and a remake in 2015:I think it's safe to say that Ross v. 2.0 was a serious upgrade.Ross is landed gentry, but not particularly wealthy. In fact, he's skirting the edge of poverty, and his father had let their home [...]

    4.5 stars rounded up"A wet October evening is depressing, but it drapes some soft shadows on the rough edges of ruin and decay. Not so the light of morning."Captain Ross Poldark is eager to return to his land and his love after fighting for the British in the Revolutionary War. He is jolted into reality when he finds that with the death of his father, his property has been neglected and ruined, and that his beloved is now engaged to his cousin. It will require much hard work and determination if [...]

    This book is featured on this week's Shabby Sunday @ readrantrockandroll/2017/It’s 1783, and Ross Poldark is returning home after fighting in the American Revolutionary War. When he arrives he learns that his father is dead, his copper mine is failing, and his sweetheart Elizabeth, whom he loves, is engaged to his cousin Francis. Not only that, but the servants haven’t been keeping up with the estate, and it’s in shambles. His joyful homecoming is crushed and everything is a mess with chic [...]

    I've been hearing a lot about the new Poldark TV-series that's being filmed for the BBC and thought the multi-generational saga sounded like something I'd enjoy, so I decided to give the first book a read. I'm so glad I did! I was instantly drawn into the story of Ross Poldark, the young officer who returns to Cornwall after fighting in the Revolutionary War, sporting a scar on his face and a limp, to find that his father is dead, his family home is in ruins, and his love, the beautiful and gent [...]

    These books are totally under-rated. Although they may be slightly trashy Pre-Victorian love stories, so was Jane Eyre when it was written. Graham is a very good writer and these books are full of powerful and descriptive pros which ignite the imagination - even if said imagination is that of a hopeless romantic who watches too much Masterpiece Theater and too many Lifetime movies. As the title suggests, it is a saga - melodramatic like 'Gone with the Wind,' but like 'Gone with the Wind' it is g [...]

    "But in the depths of horror and despair one comes to a new steadiness. There is no farther to fall."And I've fallen into the depths of this historical fiction series by Winston Graham. PBS has taken it to new heights in their offering which will debut Season 2 later in September. Ross Poldark is a returning British soldier having served in America during the uprise of the Revolutionary War. March of 1783 brings news of his father's death. Setting foot upon this once beloved estate, Ross is conf [...]

    4.5 rounded up.I couldn’t resist this book has a picture of Aidan Turner on its cover. Seriously, I have loved watching the Poldark series on PBS and I find the book it is based on to be just as interesting and fulfilling. I will be reading the entire book series, although at what pace I am not sure.Book 1 deals with Ross Poldark, who comes home to England (Cornwall, no less) from the American Revolution to find that his father has died, his land is in complete disrepair, and his love is about [...]

    This site is called and this book, together with the eleven other Poldark novels which follow it, is one of the best reads you could possibly find. Winston Graham is not just a good writer - he is in in my view a great writer. He has all the gifts and skills you could possibly want in a novelist: he creates wonderful, well-drawn characters, he has a brilliant, accurate ear for dialogue, he writes beautiful, concise description, he creates dramatic, page-turning plots - what more could you want? [...]

    Long story short, this book and the next five in the series have been on my shelves for 13 years. I remember when and where I bought them, but not why. This was way before the recent PBS series, and way before I joined GR, but I must have heard about them in some way. Despite being mass market paperbacks, I have lugged them around with me from house to house, from NC to SC, intending to read them at some point.Last year I resolved to read any 2017 book purchase before year's end, and was fairly [...]

    Rating 3.5 starsThe BBC recently aired their new version of Poldark, and whilst I and a nation of women went gaga for the brooding and shirtless Aidan Turner (oh dear God *drool*), I also adored the beautiful Eleanor Tomlinson and the sizzling chemistry they had together. When Ross and Demelza fell first in passion (the dress scene *swoon*) and then in love (the singing scene *sigh*), so did I with them. Just gorgeous. Away from the TV show, the first book in the series, Ross Poldark, took a whi [...]

    I have a shameful confession. Other than a few notable exceptions (Tolstoy, Anthony Trollope, Jasper Fforde) I rarely enjoy fiction written by men. I can’t even discuss it without resorting to stereotypes I would resent if it was women being lumped together, but if I was forced to say something it would be that even when I’m intrigued by the stories male authors have to tell, their characterizations, particularly of women, tend to make my skin crawl.So while I’ve been eagerly awaiting each [...]

    I used to think I hated historical fiction; I've since realized that what I hate is bad historical fiction. In a lot of the historical fiction books I've read, it seemed as if the author hated to waste the hours spent researching the period and instead, chose to incorporate what they'd read in lengthy text-book style asides about contextual events which really detracted from the novel itself. However, since forming that impression I've read some excellent historical fiction (e.g "Year of Wonders [...]

    5 second time around stars!!! Loved the re-read even more than the first. The sun had gone down, and the brows of the sky were dark.And Ross again knew himself to be happy- in a new and less ephemeral way than before.He thought, If we could only stop life for a while I would stop here. Not when I get home, not leaving Trenwith, but here, here reaching the top of the hill out of Sawle, dusk wiping out the edges of the land and Demelza walking and humming at my side.This has been such a fabulous a [...]

    I am a big fan of British mysteries, comedies and dramas so it is no surprise that I am a fan of Masterpiece Theater. I recorded Poldark when it appeared on PBS and enjoyed the series, but did find it a bit on the slow side. I heard that there was also another "mini-series" done in the 1970s. I knew that both were based on a book so I looked it up and saw that the first book was published in 1945 (post-world war II) and the last book was published in 2002. I was really curious in reading Ross Po [...]

    At first glance, it is easy to see why some modern readers might overlook Ross Poldark, the primogenial novel in Winston Graham’s The Novels of Cornwall family saga. Originally published in 1945, most seventy-year-old books are now long forgotten. Its main character is a man—when to appeal to its primary audience most historical fiction is carried by a female protagonist. The setting can be off putting too. It begins in 1783, a difficult and depressing time in English history after the loss [...]

    Ross Poldark is historical drama/romance that reads as realistic historical fiction not as romantic chic-lit. It has very realistic feel to it, mainly because all characters are flawed, multi-dimensional and brilliantly written. I really liked that. I will take grey character over one-dimensional one any day. I love historical family sagas and Poss Poldark is a promising start to Poldark series. I definitely plan t read next books very soon!

    Buddy read with some friends in The Reading for Pleasure Book Club. I had not seen the series on Masterpiece - but, I had friends who liked it. I joined the buddy read late. Everyone was already on to the second book. After I read some of the discussion I decided this might be something I would like, tho, it is not my typical read. All of that said, I am hooked and in for the remainder of the series. I just loved this. The characters are so well fleshed out. You really get to know them. My favor [...]

    At 122 pages I'm bailing. It may be that I'm just not in the mood. I did enjoy the humor at the beginning but after a while the story kind of dragged. I was hoping to feel a bit more invested in the characters as well but it never really happened for me. oh well. Cant win them all. But looking at all the 5 star reviews I think there might be something wrong with melolThe shame is that I own the first three books in the series (with the nice covers) and now don't know if I'll ever read them

    Una agradable sorpresa, especialmente por el modo de narrar la historia, muy ágil y sin entretenerse en dar excesivos detalles.Me ha encantado Ross, es el tipo de hombre que levanta una ceja y me sube las enaguas hasta las orejas.Muy recomendable si quieres unas enaguas no guarrers pero con un protagonista digno de ellas.

    This was SO. GOOD. I'm 100% in love with the TV show, and I was surprised at how much this felt like watching the first half, when everything is good and Ross is first falling in love with Demelza. Ross and Demelza are such an OTP, I can't wait to read (and watch) more!

    Ross Poldark, how do I love thee, let me count the ways.I had become enamored with the BBC series of Poldark. It is what spurred my desire to read the books that the series has been based upon. I have not been in the least disappointed with this the first book in the series written by Winston Graham.In this novel, we encounter Ross Poldark newly returned from the war in the American colonies to find the love of his life, Elizabeth, engaged to his cousin, Frances, his father dead, and his estate [...]

    After binge watching the show, I decided that I should probably pick up the book about the story that has so captivated me. I found the book to be quite enjoyable. To me it read very much like the show in the beginning of the novel and then it shifted towards the middle to something new and fresh. I love how the books always provide a larger window into the world of the author, more so than a show or a movie could ever do. Although it took me awhile to finish this book, it is a very quick read; [...]

    By now all of my faithful followers should know about the hit TV series based on this series of novels. In case you live under a rock (might I politely suggest you crawl out from under the rock and get on or get a copy of the DVD and watch the series?), this story is a saga about a family of Cornish gentry, the Poldarks. Returning home after fighting the rebels in America, Captain Ross Poldark discovers his home in ruins, his family mine shut and his people in need of help. He also learns his s [...]

    This was another audiobook with my wife. I love having the alternative to TV and it is cool that we have some similar interests in books so that it easy to find ones we both want to listen to.3.5 to 4 StarsA couple years ago, my wife’s parents got the 1970s version of the Poldark mini-series. This was in response to the popularity of Downton Abbey and they remembered watching it and enjoying it back in the day. I just thought it was a funny name and didn’t give it much thought. Then I found [...]
