The book was written in a way where you understand who Mrs. Astor was and how she portrayed herself to society. You saw a glimpse of how she raised her son and in result saw how he turned out. In the end, I had sympathy for Mrs. Astor and her son; in a way, they brought this suffering on themselves. They may have been rich but their problems weren't any different from anyone else. I felt that this book was unbiased, the right amount of information without sounding like a gossip column, and a very easy read. One flaw for me throughout the book was the repetition of quotes/lines - it almost felt like deja vu. This is a good book to read if you are interested in taking a little glimpse into what New York high society is like or if you are just relaxing.

Great book....but

I would have purchased the hard copy if I knew that photos would not be available in eBook version.
