ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's view on the book "Restoration," by Rose Tremain in London, England. She highlights and depicts the characters in the novel including Robert Merivel, the painfully honest narrator, and Charles II, Merivels' charismatic monarch and patron. She mentions that the book is bursting with incident and drama and is a comment on consumerism and the folly of material aspirations.
