This isn't my usual fare. I don't typically read about France, unless it's revolutionary France and involves Marie Antoinette. However, I thought that I would pick this up since I've enjoyed Nancy Goldstone as an author before and the subject sounded interesting. Now, this book is definitely more suited for those with an interest in France. This isn't my area and I'll never admit that it is. The book was very easy to understand and read. That part of it was very enjoyable. It's just that I never quite got hooked on it. I'm glad that I've read it, but I don't think I'd read it again unless I got an odd craving for some French Renaissance history.
