really liked it

I've always been interested in History, and when Marie-Antoinette was the figure rousing my curiosity I was glad to find this book.

Even if its rhythm isn't steady from the beginning to the end, it was a very nice and, above all, interesting reading.

Marie-Antoinette wasn't only an important figure of royalty, she was also a woman with her weaknesses and strengths, qualities and flaws. Albeit the rhythm was slow I read it quite quickly, entirely fascinated by her story, not because her life was wonderful, it was rather the contrary in fact and that was what caught my attention during my reading.

Marie-Antoinette was an average woman. It may seem stupid to say, but too often movies and books try to make us forget that, before being a queen, she was a woman.
