‘Beau Geste’ by P.C. Wren is a fun, romanticized adventure story of running off to join the French Foreign Legion due to the shame of committing some grievous act. The descriptions of life in the legion and being stationed in French North Africa would make any adventurer today want to go visit some of those cities and historical French forts/5().

P.C. Wren's Beau Geste, a seemingly dated novel of mystery and adventure, with settings that range from the comfortable drawing rooms of the landed gentry of an idealized England to the blazing deserts of a savage North Africa whose colonization is presented only with approval, actually remains quite a decent three-and-a-half- to four-star read.4/5.

A REVIEW OF 'BEAU GESTE' by P.C. WREN 'Beau Geste' has the unenviable status of being a book that people know of, but which fewer and fewer have actually read.

Mention its name, and the typical response is, "Oh, that's about the French Foreign Legion." And that's about it/5(). Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First Edition, 4th printing, total pages clean tight and unmarked, red top stained pages, Book has three parts, Beau Geste has pages, Beau Sabreur has pages, Beau Ideal has pages, book has full blue cloth covered boards with blind stamped horizontal and vertical lines on the front cover.

My parents gave me Beau Geste and its two sequels for Christmas a couple of years ago, and you know I brought them all with me to New York. I love these books so damn much. If you read them, you will probably think that I am a terrible person for managing to like books so blatantly classist, racist, and sexist.

The main narrator (among others), by contrast, is his younger brother John. The three Geste brothers are a metaphor for the British upper class values of a time gone by, and "the decent thing to do" is /5().

Beau, John, and Digby Geste are three inseparable, adventurous brothers who haven been adopted into the wealthy household of Lady Brandon.

Wren. It has been adapted for the screen several times. When a precious jewel known as the "Blue Water" goes missing, suspicion falls on the young people, and Beau leaves Britain to join the Foreign Legion, followed by his brothers, Digby (his twin) and John/5().

The story of Beau Geste is known from the Classic Gary Cooper movie and Snoopy's reenactments of it in the Peanuts strip, but the original novel is well worth reading. It is brilliantly-plotted, exciting, and engaging. Besides dramatic scenes, it includes many delightful turns of phrase.

So, it's a good book. But this reading is exceptional. Start your review of BEAU TRILOGY (BEAU GESTE, BEAU SABREUR, BEAU IDEAL) & 36 STORIES OF THE FOREIGN LEGION (Timeless Wisdom Collection Book ) Write a review K.
