The Red Queen
Jun 03, 2010
I did not care for this book, which is truly sad, because I love historical fiction and usually enjoy books that bring history and modern life together. the book was divided into two chapters with a shorter post-chapter. The first book focuses on the Korean princess and while parts are interesting, the story gets lost in the narrative which is often circular (at times, i felt like I was having a conversation with my 97-year old grandmother). The second book has more focus but no purpose. As I finished the book, I realized that throughout, the book lacked movement and purpose. It was describing events but not participating in a story. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
