Reviews - What do customers think about Walks Through Marie Antoinette's Paris?
Irresistible Oct 24, 2007
Just a great book. If you're considering buying this you already know the story, so I will simply say that we took this book along on our family's trip to Paris and had a great time walking through the city as Marie Antoinette's story came alive.
A Precious Gem Sep 10, 2007
When i had first seen the book walks through Napolean and Josephine's Paris i immediately looked to see if there was one about Marie Antoinette. Alas there hadn't been one printed yet but i was informed that one was in fact in the making. I was very excited and preordered mine immediately. When it arrived i immediately read it cover to cover and was very inpressed by the wealth of knowledge contained n the little book. It even includes the addresses of several shops and bakeries that catered to the French Court including M. Bertin's studio where she constructed much of MA's lavish couture. This book is a little gem and i cannot wait to use it when i visit Paris.
Misguided! May 8, 2007
This book is over one hundred pages long, but only about ten pages are actually devoted to the book's title! There are only two uneventful walks through Paris, the first one being only just slightly more interesting.
The maps provided are extremely poor, and the extra information provided by the author is nothing you could not obtain from a good guide book, or from the internet. It is certainly not worth paying the price for the information in this book!
The majority of the book talks about various residences associated with Marie Antoinette in her lifetime, coupled with a terribly written account about the ill-fated Queen. The author seems to have really forgotten about her title!
DO NOT be fooled by the other five star reviews! This book is definetly misguided, and what it does contain has been said before.
Pocket rocket!! Feb 13, 2007
What a treasure this book is. Not only does it have pictures that I haven't seen anywhere else, the information is a history enthusiasts treat! The size of the book, which adds to it's charm, is suitable to take with you as it guides you along in the footsteps of Marie Antoinette.
I simply loved it
