What made this book interesting was the life of Marie Antoinette itself rather than anything the author did. I appreciated her delicate research into the life of Marie Antoinette, but oh my word could this book drag. Took me ages to finish. Was it worth it? Considering what a huge history/French Revolution/Marie Antoinette/France in general nerd I am, then yes. But if you're not one of those things, best to find some quick historical fiction book based on her life instead.
