Sara W (sarawesq) | 2153 comments I am ALMOST finished with I Am the Chosen King - one more day or two.

One thing I have to admit is that I didn't realize that the Madame Tussaud of this book was in anyway related to the Madame Tussaud wax museums. I think I just assumed that was a made up name!

Sara W (sarawesq) | 2153 comments I have finally started this book! I'm really enjoying it so far - it seems like it should be a pretty quick read (lately books have been dragging for me for some reason, so it's nice having one that's really keeping my interest). I never had any interest in going to one of those Madame Tussaud wax musuems, but now I kind of want to! I'd really like to check out the one in London (I think it may have a little history part which talks about Marie and some old figures).

Lisa (violaashford) | 10 comments I am enjoying this book. It is simply written but it captures the strange atmosphere of Versaille and the horror of The Terror. I like the descriptions of how the wax figures are made.

Madame Tussaud is an engaging character - she is very likeable and strong. The others are all well-rounded as well.

The only problem is that the story is rather gruesome - but as someone said, "It was called The Terror for a reason".
