I love the time period of the story but the author was finished with Chapter 2 and nothing had happened except introductions. That is the trouble with older books sometimes, the actual story does not start until halfway through the book. Someday I might try this one again, but now I need more action! Better than I thought it would be after the first 50 pages, it ramps up its intrigue and twists and turns as the book progresses. It also has that pattern of endless soliliquizing and flowered speech that appears to me as being one of the more cloying aspects of the true blue Victorian novel. Kirby appeared to especially have a hardo. . . I mean, enjoyment for allusions to more obscure Roman and other mythological tales.
I only read the (300 page) abridged version, something I loathe to do unless it is the official version put out by the new Canadian library. I enjoyed it. It's hard to get used to Victorian writing, but the story is good and the setting is well realized. Don't let the title fool you: The Golden Dog is not about a canine, but a trading post in 18thcentury French Canada. It begins with true love, happiness, and romance, but ends in murder, treachery, and misery. No one gets a happy ending. The following is not a review. It's only notes for personal reference
I read the abridged version.
The story only got interesting near the end.
The courtship between the two main characters seemed drawn out and long.
Read in Winter 2010 ✓ The Golden Dog: Le Chien d'Or ✓ 19th century classic. read in university and admired it. Le Chien d'Or was absolutely amazing. Every word was like poetry. It isn't an easy read but it is well worth the time. Étrange objet que ce Chien d’or: Kirby y démontre une connaissance approfondie de la géographie et de l’histoire de Québec (la ville) où il situe, vers 1748, un récit manichéen peuplé de personnages trop beaux pour être vrais, qui connaîtront une destinée tragique prévisible des centaines de pages à l’avance, et de personnages retors (Bigot en favori de la Pompadour, La Corriveau en empoisonneuse descendante d’un mage italien. . . ) qui, bien sûr, continueront de s’engraisser aux dépens de la colonie. Je présume que c’était la mode du temps, enfin. . . de ce côté, on a vu bien de l’eau passer sous les ponts depuis, mais il n’en reste pas moins que ces descriptions du Château Bigot, des remparts, du fleuve entre Québec et StAntoinedeTilly, des mœurs du temps aussi, des chansons, des Ursulines. . . nous retiennent assez pour qu’on endure les passages co
