THE SMALLEST MAN by Frances Quinn

THE SMALLEST MAN by Frances Quinn – There aren’t many novels you read that are truly unique. There also aren’t many novels that are absolutely brilliant. The Smallest Man by Frances Quinn is both unique and brilliant. It is a story you will fall into, and never want to forget.

It tells the story of Nat Davy, a ten year old in 1625 and a dwarf, who lives with his parents, brother and sister. When he is sold by his father to a duke, Nat’s life changes forever – and he goes on a wealth of adventures which you’ll have to read for yourself.

Nat is one of the best fictional heroes I have read. You will definitely fall in love with him. He is based on a real historical figure too (Jeffrey Hudson) and it’s interesting to read Frances’s comments at the end of the book about Jeffrey’s life.

The writing itself is beautiful, the characters are wonderfully written, the historical element is realistic (but never boring, as she doesn’t dwell on irrelevant politics) and the whole novel is a complete delight!
