Mr_Mix
This is a smaller version of a smiliar book, and it does give an excellent overview of the life of Queen Victors. It is great for people who would like to know a bit more about the life of this Queen, but are not wanting to dig too deep into all the facts and figures surrounding her life. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has some knowledge of the Victorian Era, but does not want the longer verison of this book which is nearly 600 pages.

I thought this book would be a more personal story of Queen Victoria.
I would recommend this book to history majors.

This book is a concise recording of the details of the life of Queen Victoria. I also bought a much larger bio, thinking I could read the smaller one first, then dig into the larger volume. Wrong! I am reading the larger one first, because it puts into perspective who all the "characters" are in this concise version. It is still a very good book. I'm just not a very good history student.

Really enjoyed this book, it was easy to read, had lots of information on Queen Victoria and her 9 children and of course, her much loved husband. I actually enjoyed it so much that I downloaded another autobiography on Queen Victoria's children. She was known as the "mother" of Europe, as her children were married to various Princes and princesses, and became Kings and Queens as well.

Actually, I probably shouldn't review this book as I am more familiar with the approximately 600 page biography of Queen Victoria that the Countess of Longford published in 1965. It is excellent. I only mention this as one reviewer was disappointed by the length of this version. Those seeking a far more in-depth account by the same author should search for QUEEN VICTORIA-BORN TO SUCCEED.
