Marie Antoinette: The Journey - Antonia Fraser, Eleanor Bron I really knew very little about Marie Antoinette - only that which has become part of western cultural knowledge - before listening to this book. I feel much better informed now, and feel a great sense of injustice for the way she was treated. The audiobook treatment suffered for not having the footnoted translations of numerous non-English phrases that apparently appear in the print version, so at times the point that the author was trying to make was lost on me. That aside I found the style of writing to be quite straight forward and accessible for a non-academic audience.
