I honestly thought this book would read more as a biography but it was more like a history book. It wasn't fluid and it was not exactly a fun read. However, I enjoy history and a book about a woman in the eleventh century was interesting. Especially considering how women's histories were not recorded back then, Matilda had enough great influence on her kingdoms where actual historical documents were recorded.

If you like history books, this would be a great read. If you are more into biographical writings, I don't really recommend this book.
