The Second EmpressThe best part of this book was all the history Of Napoleon Bonaparte I Think The Author Lured Readers Napoleon Bonaparte I think author lured readers nto book by putting a woman on the front cover but she The Second Empress focused on the last few years of Napoleon s reign The author looked at this chaotic period through 3 people with different views Pauline Paul and Marie Louise After reading this book I came to realize that I know so little about Napoleon s rise and fall After reading this book I also felt that this book did not help me gain The Draining Lake (Inspector Erlendur insights to Napoleon s rise and fall The books easy to read and fast paced But Mers it left me with a feeling of dissatisfaction No substance after 300 pages I felt empty Perhaps the author was trying to simplify a very complicated period of time During this simplifying process a lot of nuances and details were lost so the characters seemed one dimensional Napoleon was a brute Pauline was crazy and Marie Louise deserved sympathy But I think to myself these were unusual people at an unusual time They can t be this simple and straightforward Hence my dissatisfaction I can t say I dislike the story becauset has a certain gossip uality to A Heros Welcome it that made me keep reading The book was very easy to read but somehow after readingt I just didn t feel that good Ah Finding Normal it sounds like eating junk food The good thing about reading this books that I am now Die Germanen interestedn reading the real history of the Bonaparte family and find out what really happened 35 StarsI enjoyed this book Like Moran s other novels The Broken Sword it was easy and light to read It was full of history but at the same time not heavily detailed Moran focused on the relationships than the actual political wars This being my first read on Napoleon I wasn t sure of how accuratet was I didn t want to google until I finish Full disclosure I was provided with an Advanced Reader Copy of the book by the publishersI ve read all of Moran s previous novels and Haunted Houses it s been a bit of a mixed bag for me I didn t like her ancient Egypt novels at all the protagonists were too one dimensional the plots were simplistic andmplausible she failed to capture the zeitgeist of the times and all n all I was disappointed by how juvenile the writing was Moran s previous novel Madame Tussaud offered a meatier plot a well rounded and sympathetic protagonist and although t could have been better Christianity at the Crossroads it was genuinely entertaining and an enjoyable read I have to say I think The Second Empresss Moran s best novel yetLet s get some of the negatives out of the way Early on there were signs of Moran s earlier style there s a great big The Romanovs info dump something which Moran hasn t been terribly good at writingn the past and she makes a few sweeping generalisations here and there Once or twice there are a couple of modernisms or Americanisms dropped here and there Once or twice there are a couple of modernisms or Americanisms dropped there which did kinda jerk me out of the historical setting but they were less than a handful Cravings in number and not a freuent event There are a few historicalnaccuracies Moran discusses these The Wedding Date in her Author s Note but there are also one or two that she doesn t mention No spoilers thiss known historical fact Maria Lucia and Adam Neipperg didn t actually meet until after Napoleon s downf.
