FREE READ A Scandalous Life The Biography of Jane Digby Mary S. Lovell ↠ 1 READ READ ☆ A Scandalous Life The Biography of Jane Digby Filled with passion and adventure Rebel Heart tells the story of Jane Digby said to be the most beautiful wom. IT S FINALLY OVER This book should be outlawed by the Geneva Convention as a torture device Geez Where to beginThe subject Jane Digby is presented by the author and by others as a feminist icon a woman who was sexually free an adventurer and open to new experiences and ideas that most women in her age wouldn t even dream of The problem with that is it s all a complete lie Yes Jane Digby had sex With a lot of men But here s the pattern of the first 40 years of her life Find a man that adores her They have wild passionate romance and sex They probably have a kid Their passion or his passion dulls She feels lonely She finds someone new They have wild passionate romance and sex They probably have a kid Man 1 says hey wait a minute so she packs up and leaves happily abandoning her marriageromance child country religion name home whatever she can think of to be with man 2 Eventually man 2 s passion fades and so on about 14 times I don t know about you but a woman who is so desperately needy to be with a man that loves her that she literally abandons EVERYTHING to be with him and that she does this SEVERAL TIMES throughout her twenties and thirties is NOT my feminist hero She s the high school girl I watched flinging herself at the cars of ex boyfriends sobbing and begging them to take her back and went UghJane does eventually make her way to the middle east where she marries Sheikh Medjuel a man 20 years younger than her Despite the fact that she now lives the freaking desert with a Bedouin tribe this does not make the book interesting on that below The one honorable courageous thing we see Jane do during these years is help people affected by a massacre in DamascusEXCEPT we have no information on this first hand from Jane Jane kept extensive and painfully boring diaries all of which are uoted liberally in this book All we know are rumors that reached one of her ex husbands Except the author already showed us earlier in the book that many of the rumors he heard weren t remotely founded in truth Therefore although the author does not take Jane s heroic acts with a grain of salt I doThe writing Even with a completely unsympathetic heroine I m sure that with all the things Jane went through this still could have been an exciting book Too bad it wasn t Even when we hit Damascus and she s married to a man who goes on MONTHS LONG DESERT RAID BATTLES WITH OTHER TRIBES it s boring boring boring The author sees no reason to follow anyone who s not Jane even for a paragraph and Jane spends most of her time not out in the desert with her husband but in a house in Damascus So while her husband is off doing awesome romance hero shit we re stuck listening to Jane complain about the housekeeper When we do hear about his stuff it s usually in uotes from Jane s diaries who writes about them like business transactions and suabbles And while I m sure that ultimately that s what they were her husband is MAKING WAR AND RAIDING OTHER TRIBES IN 140 DEGREE WEATHER OMG and do we get to have fun No The author does a similar thing when discussing the Turkish harems Jane is apparently one of the only European women in the 19th century to have a real understanding of these harems but do we get to hear anything about what these Turkish harems are like No All we hear about is how Jane pitied them and thought they were sexual slaves and would listen to the girls worries sometimes I DON T WANT JANE S OPINION I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT HAREMS Basically the first half of Jane Digby s life was spent hurling herself at whatever man would have her next and then abandoning everything to hurl herself at the next one and the second half of her life was spent living something right out of The Sheik if the heroine in The Sheik had spent most of her
