It took 21 hours to read this aloud to my wife in segments before bed.

I really liked this one but it's gonna take me a bit to write a decent review.

When I first read this book, I hated it.

Honestly, the writing style is pretty boring, but the info is good, so i'll let it pass...

Probably not a good choice for a Kindle book. I found myself trying to find maps from the times of each queen to try and figure out the constantly changing borders. I did alternate the 4 queens' stories with some other lighter reading. In the end, I got bored with it TBH. That is more a reflection on me than the author. The book is well researched and understanding that not much information was written about the women during these times, it is very impressive to get such detailed accounts. I'm more a fan of historical fiction, it seems. This feels more like a book you'd read in a great feminist history class.… (mais)
