Marie Antoinette: The Journey by Antonia Fraser is an insightful look into the life of the infamous queen of France. Fraser takes on an interesting, rather sympathetic perspective on Antionette that you wouldn’t usually see. She tells her story from the beginning giving people a look into her childhood, personal life and what was happening behind the scenes in the notorious queen’s life.
I think that this book was very informative and gave a unique perspective of Marie Antoinette’s life and her “Journey.” Although I personally don’t enjoy this type of book, I do think that Fraser did an excellent job portraying Marie Antionette as more than just the selfish and promiscuous woman that provoked the French revolution. If you enjoy history, non-fiction, or just an interesting biography I would recommend this to you.
