Customer Review

on 22 November 2011
Being a nocturnal reader, I was consigned to the spare bedroom by my husband, as I was unable to put Magnificent Obsession down! My God was it worth it!
Helen Rappaport weaves her story and gently pulls you into history unlike many books of this genre, which at times can be dull as ditchwater and a cure for insomnia.
The book was well researched, thoughtfully written and thoroughly enjoyable. It brings Victoria to life, during a very bleak period, into focus and shows how manipulative and childlike her behaviour could be. Rappaport also gives a new and fresh slant on what could have actually caused poor,interferring and overworked Alberts demise.
She also describes vividly the family dynamics and titbits of history which I wasn't aware of, such as Britain almost being dragged into war with America, or that Victoria never really enjoyed her childrens company, preferring Albert,such was her obsessive love.
It is a book which I would whole heartedly recommend.
