By Emile Zola reader TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 Jan. 2008
Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Lever does not make mass assumptions like some historical biographers and although perhaps not suited to the serious historian, this book is pitched just right for everyone interested in Marie Antoinette and the period in which she lived. Lever's style of writing is first rate, not too complex and not Janet and John either. I wholly recommend this book and I am about to order Ms Lever's other books based on the pleasure I got from reading this one.

Format: Paperback
This book is a good read. Ms Lever shows Marie Antoinette for who she was. A very young bride who was homesick and bored at Versailles. To becoming a young woman, a fashion victim, who liked to have fun. The author transforms the myth of Marie Antoinette into a real person. I think that afterall even in today's life a girl her age would react in the same manner if she would find herself in the same circumstances. This biography was one of the very few that I enjoyed reading. It is certainly not a dragging book. I could not stop reading it. I also think that it was very well researched.

This book is fantastic - I couldn't put it down

It gives a fascinating insite into the life of Marie Antoinette and is very well written to keep the readers interest throughout.
It has footnotes to give references or extra explanation and has plates with photos.

A fantastic book - I highly recommend it.

being a "fan" of marie antoinette this book is very insightful into the life from a historians view, using only records and diary entries to compile the book. its an interesting read for anyone interested in this lady, her trials and tribulations and the era.
