This book was responsible, in part, for inspiring America to enter WW II with Britain, and the movie, "The White Cliffs of Dover" was rushed into production for the same purpose. The prose is beautiful, inspiring, and extremely atmospheric. This is one of a few books which I cannot be without, and I'm so glad that it FINALLY made it into the Ebook world.

I just finished reading The Charm School for the fourth or fifth time. It's, perhaps, my favorite novel, especially within the genre of espionage and Cold War.

The book has a ring of both accuracy and plausibility. The characters are well defined, but not so much so that you can't use your imagination to round them out. The story is well drawn and suspenseful, yet not so convoluted that you lose the story line and chain of events.

I have read all of Mr. DeMille's books, and while I have thoroughly enjoyed most of them, this one stands out because the characters are not as sarcastic and "snarky" as the characters in his recent novels.

My only regret about The Charm School is that no one has ever picked it for a movie.
Best DeMille book I've read, and I've read most of them. Full of interesting things, both about Soviet Russia and spies in general. The plot is very suspenseful, exciting, unpredictable and believable. Even the characters are believable and likeable. I like DeMille as a writer but get annoyed when he writes with excessive sarcasm and "smart aleck" comments, particularly with the John Corey novels. I like the humor but he tends to go overboard with it. Fortunately this one doesn't have that characteristic -- dialog was realistic for the setting. Particularly liked the ending.
I love DeMille and love his books. This is an older title, but I have just gotten around to reading it. It is set in the Cold War era when there was a Commie under every bush. All I could think of while reading this was "Moose and Squirrel must die!" I loved everything about this book except the ending. It's not that the ending was bad, it just wasn't the ending I was expecting or hoping. I always get engrossed in my reading and start relating to the characters and story. This ending left me cold; fell flat. I could see it ending this way in the real world, but not in the world of fiction - or at least DeMille's fiction. Others may disagree and I am sure they will and you will have your own opinion. I wanted a decisive, vengeful ending - it wasn't there. Nevertheless, I recommend this book as it is compelling and entertaining.
In my opinion, this book was one of DeMille's best. I don't know how I had never read it before as it was written many years ago and yet, big DeMille fan that I am, I read it only a few weeks ago. Maybe it was the title that made me think I wouldn't be interested. DeMille's books often are set in New York and specifically Long Island so I may have taken the title literally and assumed it actually took place at a charm school, perhaps on the Gold Coast or in someplace like Garden City. I couldn't have been more wrong! It involves American Embassy and, yes, intelligence personnel, and takes place in Russia back in the days of the Cold War, when the KGB ruled by fear and people mysteriously disappeared in the night, never to be heard from again. The discovery of a secret operation in Russia is incredible yet plausible as is the resolution, given the politics and international relations considerations. As always with DeMille books, it is well researched and the characters well developed so that you feel present in the action. I highly recommend this books for lovers of intrigue and edge of your seat thrillers.
Excellent and entertaining novel set in the Cold War era. My only complaint is that the female character is completely unnecessary to the plot. Take her out and you'd still have the same book without the distraction of a pretty much implausible relationship bewteen her and the male character. The Charm School was chilling - and I'm sure it's entirely possible that such a place actually existed. Maybe it still does.
Since the end of the Vietnam war, there has always been the rumor that the USSR had taken downed pilots from the Viet Cong to Russia. While no one, that we know of, knows for sure is pilots were abandon this is where the USA's 'no man left behind' movement came from. Many authors have used this premise in stories over the years. I, myself have two short stories based on it.

Just when you think the USA is about to do the right thing by service man and women left behind, you just might be wrong, AGAIN, at least in this book, Charm School! From how the embassy finds out about this infamous school to how the men and women lived for years shows DeMille's genius and his masterful plotting which not all authors have. Charm School if not the first of Nelson DeMille's books, it's one of his early books. I think it is his best!
The depth of thinking, the delineated characterizations of many
major figures in one story, the descriptive that have you smelling the chimney smoke, the unwashed, the barrenness of the land the almost disgusting opulence of the Kremlin Square vs the most base peasant existence, the incredible page turning story.....the education of landmarks and cityscapes. Just use this as the textbook in Russian history classes and give students a true, vital, glued to the pages lesson they can carry their entire lives. Every student WILL finish this assignment. They will ignore their smartphones for long periods as they feed their brains and souls. Along w Word of Honor, one of DeMille’s finest hours.
The premise is riveting, too wild in the numbers but had a hint of possibility to keep me page turning!! I loved the descriptions of the streets and roads and heck even the pine forests.and especially the village.. knowing it was a novel but having that hope there might be some truth in pows being "taken" or traded. The writing is very good.. I agree Hollis is no John Corey..( who I Love love love) but enough of a good character to enjoy the book thoroughly!!
