Sex with the ueen review Î 4 Her idiot husband murdered and ruled the Russian empire with a long list of sexy young favoritesMarie Antoinette fell in love with the handsome Swedish count Axel Fersen who tried valiantly to rescue her from the guillotinePrincess Diana gave up her palace bodyguard to enjoy coun. Sex with the ueen by Eleanor Herman reminded me a lot of Notorious Royal Marriages by Leslie Carroll a book I read last year and also loved It s all about various ueens throughout history and their adulterous affairs going in depth as to backgrounds and explanations of why a royal woman might feel compelled to take a lover This book s style is sort of gossipy but I didn t mind that It s not a total Seventeen Magazine gossip column that gushes and seems entirely made up of unfounded rumors It s just not an overly serious scholarly work It seemed very well written to me and I appreciated that the author took the reader entertainment factor and balanced it rather well with the this is still a book about history and should have sources cited and be based in fact and have the people learn something I enjoyed learning about Sophia Dorothea of Celle and other royal women that I haven t heard much about thus far from this book The one thing that knocked it down a star for me was that it seemed like Eleanor Herman let her personal biases about certain personages show through a bit than maybe they should have It s true that she has to explain the story and the scandal within a 20 or so page limit per ueen but I got the distinct feeling that she doesn t have a very favorable impression of Marie Antoinette Alexandra Romanov or Princess Diana Their entries were vitriolic than some of the others I am aware that historians are humans too and I ve read biographies specifically about Marie Antoinette and Alexandra Romanov that perhaps leaned toward giving these controversial figures the benefit of the doubt in many cases But as I read their entries here at certain points I was kind of like Wow I m sure this person wasn t THAT bad I wished Herman had just given the facts about the stories as this history is super entertaining as it is and let the readers decide for themselves whether they are going to sympathize with these various ueens or not without being led by Herman s opinionsOverall though I enjoyed this immensely I am reading Herman s Sex with Kings as well and hope I like it just as much I d also definitely recommend Leslie Carroll s book I mentioned above as well as Scandals of Classic Hollywood by Anne Helen Petersen if you re into this genre of pretty reliable history that also attempts to really showboat

Sex with the ueen review Î 4 Tless love affairs which tragically led to her early deathIn this impeccably researched scandalously readable follow up to her New York Times bestseller Sex with Kings Eleanor Herman reveals the truth about what has historically gone on behind the closed door of the ueen's boudoi. Most of this book is definitely written much better in comparison with its mate Sex With Kings However the entire thing read like it had foregone an editor from chapter lengths to paragraphs to seriously incomplete sentences at times several on one page this book was wrought with technical issues or most likely just bad writing I am sorry to say that Bad writing can make or break a non fiction book and in this case it completely broke it I couldn t even tell what I was reading was it a historical non fiction book a poorly written romance novel or a smutty tabloid Phrases akin to she then writhed above him biting his nipples or we can just imagine her pining after her the lover whose hands she could still feel upon her or we can just see their two bodies intertwined do not cut it in a non fiction book You were not there you cannot assume and it is not the kind of book genre that lets you imagine I want to KNOW not IMAGINE when I read non fiction and this was definitely NOT a non fiction novel a la Capote or others so I can t even defend it that way This made me really mad as personal imaginings happened A LOT There was so much assumption and bad trash novel writing that it undermined all the hard historical research that clearly must have gone into this book The author came off as a voyeuristic young girl fabricating details of private encounters instead of a historian Yes I learned a lot about the lives of European ueens and their lovers I learned a lot about life at court and about marriage laws but in the end I wanted it to kind of stop there I can do lots of imagining on my own I don t need to read two thirds of a page and realize it is all made up smut from the author s point of view The book also ends with a terrible taste in my mouth with a very slanderous chapter about Princess Diana which makes her out to be a really awful woman Regardless if this is true or not much of the chapter had NOTHING to do with the topic of the book which is SEX WITH UEENS Maybe her death is still recent enough in collective memory for me to be okay with slandering someone and airing out the dirty laundry of a woman whose family is still all alive I know part of this book is aimed at exactly that airing out dirty royal laundry so maybe someone else can come up with another version that is about the reality of royal affairs and not smutty details

    E–pub/E–book (Sex with the ueen) This is actually a DNF for me The format drove be crazy everything seemed to be a summary I kept waiting for the actual book to begin but it never didThere is of course a scarcity of information when it comes to the affairs of ueens Unlike Kings ueens were expected to be virtuous so their affairs were well hidden Still a good number of these accounts seem to be supposition of the time an unreliable source in my opinion Perhaps
