did not like it

In the past, I have enjoyed reading about Marie Antoinette. I never connected with this writer's version of the story, told from the point of view of the Queen's assistant reader--now residing in Vienna some 21 years past the revolution. Don't know why I even continued in reading, because it was confusing and unclear to me.

Alabama Best Practices Center Interesting, because I had a hard time with Sena Jeter Naslund's book on Antoinette. A few years ago, I read a trilogy on Josephine Bonaparte and loved it. She was such a substantial woman and, from at least, Naslund's book, M.A. seemed to be a spoiled child (albeit with a very challenging husband!)
