Feeling I should know more about the French Revolution than I actually did (and having struggled with Simon Schama's Citizens), I thought I'd give this a try. While the book is short, it's beautifully written and highly informative.
My only cavil is that the reader of the audiobook, while having an otherwise excellent French accent, doesn't seem to have mastered the pronunciation of "ville", which he confuses with "vie".
Cavils aside, this book is to be highly recommended.
