it was ok
bookshelves: historical-nonfiction, nonfiction, vive-la-france

The book started off good, but it quickly waned. I think my biggest issue was that it didn't focus that much on Madame de Pompadour. It spent a lot of time focusing on what the men were doing rather than what she was doing. Perhaps there's not a lot recorded about what she was doing. Perhaps the author just didn't go for that. Either way, it was a let-down. I'll have to keep my eye out for another book about her!
