Review: Marie Antoinette’s Darkest Days: Prisoner No. 280 in the Conciergerie

Marie Antoinette's Darkest Days: Prisoner No. 280 in the Conciergerie
by Will Bashor

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love history, but despise how history books are written. They tend to be dry and tedious. This book was written in a much more engaging way. I would say that it is written more like a lecture than a novel. If you liked history class in school, this book is for you.

It is extremely well researched. I especially enjoyed the details provided. They make the events more dramatic and relatable. The author details every move Marie Antoinette made and lets the reader know where he got that information from. It makes it quite easy to imagine exactly what happened to her and how she was feeling in her last days.

I highly recommend this book to any history lover who wants a more in depth story of the end of Maire Antoinette’s life.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC.
