The Marie Antoinette Romances, Vol 3: The Queen's Necklace (Version 2)

Gelesen von John Van Stan

(4,75 Sterne; 8 Bewertungen)

This 3rd volume of the Marie Antoinette Romances begins a decade after the close of "The Mesmerist’s Victim” and is based on a real scandal in Louis XVI’s court, commonly called “The Diamond Necklace Affair.” In this volume, the plotting of a powerful occultist, Count Cogliostro (or “Balsamo”), collides with the long-festering resentments of a previous royal house, Jeanne de Valois (de la Motte), a growing popular movement for sociopolitical reform, and a shrinking supply of bread. It is easy to see how converging sociopolitical challenges can threaten the monarchy, but how can the court of Louis XVI overcome these challenges amidst a famine? After all, in the words of his economic advisor, Turgot de l'Aulnes, “Ne vous mêlez pas du pain” (One must not meddle with bread)! - Summary by jvanstan (16 hr 40 min)

SUBTERFUGE REIGNS

(5 Sterne)

Never has one novel presented so many plots and sub-plots. One can only marvel that Dumas could keep them all straight in his mind. This third novel of the five offers no sign of losing momentum, and the narration of Van Stam only enhanced. On to number four!

a facinating sequel

(5 Sterne)
