"Beautifully evokes the period" (Independent on Sunday)
"Delightfully gossipy...irreverently lifts the skirts of the dolls of Versailles and rummages about underneath, exposing one gem of irresistible detail after another...A glorious tribute to a glorious age" (Irish Times)
"La Mitford plonks the reader amid the seething snobbery and maniacal struggle for High Life that was the Sun King's regime... brilliantly acerbic" (Observer)
"Her style is skilfully succinct; and her wit proceeds from uncommon shrewdness...readers will wish her her book were twice as long" (Sunday Times)
"Highly entertaining...written with her accustomed dash and gaiety, in a manner which frequently suggests one of her delightful novels... Because Miss Mitford is so at home in Versailles, she confers the same feeling of being at home upon a sympathetic modern reader" (Sunday Telegraph)

I found the grammar and spelling to be awful. A lot of the book didn't make sense!
