Well, this one is tricky. In one hand - interesting to read and ( most importantly ) captures Louis XVI's character as well as Queen's. Easy to read and captures from first page. But still I can't recommend it to serious readers. Because two reasons. First - cover. It looks like some cheap romantic novel than a serious biography. And we judge book by the cover. ( yes, we all do it, don't try to lie that YOU don't ) Second - it feels like cheap novel - no references, no sources, nothing. Just list of books about Marie Antoinette like some kind of joke. In short - if you Marie Antoinette's fan, you finished all others biographies and searching something light to read, take it.
