As a child, my idol was Marie Antionette. I guess it had more to do with her clothes and hair, than her actual actions. Since I liked her that much, I decided to read this heavy book.

Very informative and entertaining read.
It was really refreshing to read about a queen who's life was so very hard after becoming one.

I like how portrays Marie Antoinette as a product of her times.
