What the community says about Marie Antoinette: The Journey

  • Billy Fernandez

    "This was a pretty good read, but got a bit boring at times. I know, it's non-fiction, but there's almost always something to write about to keep the reader interested, and this fell a bit short. Marie Antoinette was a powerful figure, and this didn't quite do her justice as a biography."

    "History always leaves behind a lesson in the form of past people's life experiences for us to learn and not commit the same mistakes those people did. Often times those people used their most common sense and logic to be sensible, reasonable and rational in their judgments. However, there are some whose life lessons are considered to be a subject of mockery or ridicule. And France's queen Marie Antoinette is definitely of those who are often misunderstood and misinterpreted. This book by Antonia Fraser opened me to new set of perspectives to see Marie's life and her struggles from naive childhood to the privileged thrones. It shows how she had to go through and adjust herself to bring the best of her for the people around and convey it to the history."

    "I have major problems with Marie Antoinette: The Journey, but that's not because of the subject matter, but the facts that are contained in the book. There are clear gaps in the history, and some of the data has already been revised. While this does make for a great book in any Marie Antoinette collection, I would not recommend reading on its own as you will be filling your head with some false information."

    "I thought this was a very informative biography of Marie Antoinette. I found it fascinating for the most part but it kind of reads like a research paper and less like a novel which makes it somewhat boring to read."

    "The book is full of history and facts, but it is not a novel, it is not a page turner. It is a heavy and in depth book."

    "I was looking for a really good biography about women, and this is the one! I had a lot of negative misconceptions about Marie Antoinette, but reading about the real history behind her was both interesting and enlightening."

    "I can't think of a more iconic quote from a historical figure of this time period than Marie Antoinette's "let them eat cake!" This book can definitely seem super controversial, but it's also really fascinating to me to read about her life. It allowed me a peek into her world. The curiosities, setting, costumes and their lifestyles make this a top ranking biography to read. "

    "I read this book because it was recommended by The New York Times. It's pretty interesting, I think I would've enjoyed it more if I was into French history. It's probably worthy of your time too."
