Anyone read this one?

It's one of the better fiction books about Marie Antoinette! I was impressed with Ms. Naslund's novel.

There were some aspects I disliked though. But at least the same old stereotypes were avoided. I felt her Antoinette came across a little selfish and ditzy but there was kindness and innocence in her characterization which I liked.

Louis was also portrayed well and it was clear that he was not disinterested in his wife or politics. He was a sympathetic character. He could also be romantic which the novel showed. I would like to imagine there were some tender moments between them like that Smile

Luckily, she had the Queen's relationship with Fersen as platonic. He was portrayed as a chivalrous knight willing to sacrifice for his lady, which is how I envision the relationship. I didn't like how she was wrapped up in fantasies from time to time however, especially while in prison. But overall I was pleased there was no physical relationship.

Thoughts? Very Happy
