    eBook shop peters.de ë The Road to Compiegne PDF/EPUB Ó The Road Kindle - road mobile, compiegne mobile, The Road epub, The Road to Compiegne PDF/EPUBThis one is the second in the Revolution Series by Jean Plaidy and I absolutely loved it Moving on from the first book Louis the Well Beloved see my review here which portrays Louis from birth to the beginning of his relationship with La Maruise de Pompadour in this volume Louis goes from well beloved by his people to completely loathed Hunger is prevalent and the country is in turmoil but Louis rather than owning up to his responsibilities lives in complete denial while alienating himself all the He can no longer travel to Paris due to the extreme danger it poses him The people are enraged and blame his excessiveness and abiding loyalty to La Pompadour for their misery He is considered a weak ruler that takes counsel from his mistress to reign over the countryLa Pompadour certainly had her say in politics and did advise Louis on all

    eBook shop peters.de ë The Road to Compiegne PDF/EPUB Ó The Road Kindle - road mobile, compiegne mobile, The Road epub, The Road to Compiegne PDF/EPUBI was rather disappointed by this book I felt that a huge amount of information was presented but barely enough focus was on Madame de Pompadour and Louis XV's relationships It felt like mostly the focus on was Louis' numerous mistresses and dalliances and Pompadour's desperate grasp to maintain her power and hold over Louis while her health declines While I am sure Pompadour was a lovely intelligent and interesting person it doesn't really show all that much in this book I felt like random dots and side stories are placed here and very barely connected to form a solid bookWe are also introduced to numerous characters with barely a few sentences here and there before they are whisked away again never to be seen again or until much later Or they are referenced but seem very much one dimensional After Pomadour's death it gets a tad boring until Madame de Berry comes into the picture but even then the book kind of just drag
