    1. An interesting bio. I hadn't known much of Marie Antoinette before I read this. Quite illuminating and sympathetic towards the queen. Drug on a bit towards the end.

    2. I knew the outlines of Marie-Antoinette's life and I really enjoyed discovering her early life in this book.

    3. Admittedly I knew nothing about Marie Antoinette before I read this book. Her young life is spoiled and frivilous and for the most part silly! She does however mature into a very regal and dignified woman of compassion and depth. Being as the French Revolution is the catalyst for Marie Antionette's fame and tragedy, this book brought to light the plight of the people and the monarchy who other than inheriting power, are very ill qualified to deal with issues of economics.

    4. This is an old hardcover book that I borrowed from my mom's collection. I've only made it about halfway, but it has been eye opening. Although I've studied French history and lived in France, I'm amazed at the silliness and superficiality that reigned at Versailles, at least during the early days of Marie Antoinette's tenure. I think it's fair to say that Marie Antoinette and Paris Hilton have a lot in common, although (thank God) Paris Hilton isn't one of the two most powerful people in the Uni [...]

    5. I'm not sure if this is a bad French to English translation because at some sentences were incomprehensible. Even still the material itself was shallow, like a micro soap opera with shamefully limited historical context of the complicated and tumultuous political, economic, and international, forces at play. This book left me suspect that Marie Antoinette and the rest of the royal court had to be more complicated that the woman child and men boys portrayed in this book.

    6. I learned a lot reading this book. It was well researched and, while seemingly very accurate, I felt it ended up being sympathetic to Marie Antoinette.
