Interesting historical story - however a bit drawn out
on 6 December 2012
I found this book to be interesting and gave lots of information about a period in history (French Revolution) which I had limited knowledge. I found the character of Madame Tussaud to be a little emotionless and found it difficult to connect with her. At times the book was brutal and there were times I almost gave up - however I persevered and finished it. I give my ratings on how many of my friends I would recommend the book to and as at the end of this story I felt I would have to carefully pick people to recommend I only gave a 3 star rating.
