Title: Marie Antoinette: A Journey
Author: Antonia Fraser
Review: 5 out of 5 stars
As a reader you are led through her childhood in Vienna through her years as dauphine and finally her reign as queen. But more importantly, you are given a genuine portrait of a woman whom history has completely condemned. This description of her character is thoroughly backed by minute facts which rends a historically accurate portrait.
For those of you who fell in love with Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette" (2006) it will probably be interesting to know that the movie in large parts follows this book.
Frankly, there is not much more to say. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in either Marie Antoinette herself, the French Revolution or the era in general.
