A Review:


Review:
Doomed Queens: Royal Women Who Met Bad Ends, From Cleopatra to Princess Di - Kris Waldherr
This was a 50/50 for me and I wasn't sure if to give it a 2 1/2 or 3 star rating but decided on giving it a 3. I enjoyed reading this because I found about Queens that I had never heard about before and this allowed me to do more research on those whom I found interesting. Each woman only gets a one to two page spread so if you are looking for in depth information this is not the book for you. On the bad aspects of it, the flippancy with which this story is told was extremely annoying and there is a condescending tone through out most of the book that I sometimes felt was a little too much. This is a great book to read in short bursts so if you are looking for that give this try.
