    eBook Victoria ePUB ï ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de ↠ victoria book, Victoria PDFI was a little disappointed in AN Wilson's Victoria A Life Okay I was a lot disappointed because I was hoping to get some new insight into the life of Victoria In writing this book Wilson had access to Victoria's writings and other documents from the era to which other biographers have not been privy However I found that Wilson's writing tended to be jumpy and disjointed a timeline genealogical chart and cast of characters would have been immensely helpful in getting through this book Since I was reading an advanced review copy it is possible that those are included in the final published version I hope so as it will make things so much easier for the readerAt times Wilson manag

    eBook Victoria ePUB ï ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de ↠ victoria book, Victoria PDFDNF somewhere around 70%I'm really starting to doubt that I even like Victoria Her life is a jumbled mess She feels sorry for herself throughout her life and I hate people who do that Especially when they have pretty damn good lives except for minor things Then there's her gossipy years And her years where she's being controlled by Albert Or various other men since she almost constantly seemed to need that Also pretty sexist womanSo either I don't like Victoria or I don't like how she's presented Either she's presented as very weak and needing a man to control her or she's presented as a strong woman who was wild This biography was heavy on talking about politics that didn't involve her Victoria was tacked on even in her own biography Then when it got into her personal life it was all focused on her family and whatever man she

    eBook Victoria ePUB ï ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de ↠ victoria book, Victoria PDFI finished this with a great deal of regret as it is to me a masterly biography of someone who combined a great deal of empathy and humanity with being a monstre sacre of sublime selfishness He doesn't hide her many faults and examines the rumours of her marriage to John Brown with the right degree of scepticism but finds her fascinating and intelligent

    eBook Victoria ePUB ï ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de ↠ victoria book, Victoria PDFSloppy disjointed and rather dismissive in parts but revealing nonetheless Concurrently in reading this book I also watched several documentaries on Victoria and her children and it's interesting the many different takes people have on her character and reign I chose this book to read because it was the largest and I hoped the most comprehensive but I think back to the drawing board If anything this book seemed to be mostly centered around Victoria's relations with her prime ministers than anything else Oddly I think this book minimized the roles of the villainous Sir John Conroy and her governess Lehzen in Victoria's life when other sources emphasize them And I think it made the Kensington system as insignificantlater justification by Victoria and her mother as saintly with all those nice letters as proof to her mother's devotion I can totally see why Victoria was estranged from her mother her mom openly chose Conroy over her why sort of unclear was she that weak wi

    eBook Victoria ePUB ï ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de ↠ victoria book, Victoria PDFVictoria has been a magnet for biographical rereading in the eleven decades since her death In the 1990s academic scholars got hold of the ueen and the results were a post structuralist Victoria It is now twenty years since the last serious flurry of biographical interest Wilson picks up the pieces and puts the jigsaw back together again creating in the process a Victoria for our own timeWilson went to the archives in Sax Coburg and reconnected the taproot of Victoria and Albert’s plan for a united moderate German Wilson shows that after the death of Albert Victoria continued “the Coburg Project”When the Schleswig Holstein crisis blew up in the early 1860s she understood in a way that her prime minister Palmerston did not that buried in the parochial suabble between Prussia and Denmark were the first signs of t

    eBook Victoria ePUB ï ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de ↠ victoria book, Victoria PDFI went into this book without much knowledge of ueen Victoria outside of a few general details I have not read anything else that focuses on the woman but I can't help but feel that this book does not do her justice It is a dry read and one that skips around in strangely disjointed ways Wilson does not handle transitions with any grace and tangential information is thrown in willy

    eBook Victoria ePUB ï ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de ↠ victoria book, Victoria PDFVictoria's reign is far too long and too detailed to have a single definitive biography But if you're looking for something to act as an ideal survey course between two covers then you won't go wrong reading this surprisingly detailed yet surprisingly easy to read epic A story of Victoria's reign than Victoria the person it does offer incredible insights into her psycholo

    eBook Victoria ePUB ï ↠ pb reisen gewusst wie.de ↠ victoria book, Victoria PDFI got the ARC via Penguin's First to Read program The subject of this book is fascinating the structure of the book could have been improved At points there was so much trivial information being thrown at the reader some of it as an aside that what place and time being discussed was hard to figure out The book doesn't uncover all the mysteries ueen Victoria left behind at certain points she is still a puzzle and because her children did their best to censor and hide the salacious pieces of trivia from her correspondence the author and reader are left with unanswered uestions It is an odd biography in some ways intimate and yet distant Perhaps it is fitting since that seems to be the best way to describe Victoria herself
