    interesting history

    Never has a history book been so interesting. I'm usually a fan of fictional historical romance or of fiction books. But this book was so captivating that i read it in a matter of 2 weeks 'it's a pretty long book'. I was never bored reading this and i certainly learned some history

    Interesting bio

    Presents a more nuanced picture of the subject. In this well written and researched book, Marie Antoinette assumes a human and, at times, very sympathetic dimension.

    A reviewer

    Excellent read. Fraser was very thorough...a little 'too' thorough because the book can at times be long and drawn out...but can't complain. Also sets the record straight on the whole 'let them eat cake' fiasco. Definitely recommended for anyone interested.

    Formality

    I have this version, with the first cover, and i'm going to get this one with the pink cover later. But besides the physical notations, this happens to be a little too formal for the reader who actually enjoys reading. And yes I have the carolly erickson version of it, To the Scaffold: The Life of M.A., i'm on chapter 2, but i can say that its a lot more comfortable, and Erickson definitely eases you into it with a more nonchalant manner, its much more comfortable, and more of a novel like history, which I prefer to a more machanical textbook format of Antonia Fraser's 'The Journey'.
