You will be right in what you think; but you will also find out that with their parents arranging their marriages at a very young age, neither of them was ever able to experience the feelings of young love. Because Antoinette was from Austria, she had to be married twice, once in Austria and then again in France. When married in Austria her husband to be could not be present, so, weird as it seemed, her brother stood in for the groom.

  • Off with Another Head - Antoinette’s
  • And much more!

You will see what horrors and terrors that Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, their children, and Louis’ sister had to suffer through for four years before their deaths. If you could just put yourself in their shoes, it will bring tears to your eyes. You will realize that they in no way deserved the treatment they received and then you will read how they were forced to meet their deaths.

Interesting and easy to follow!

I loved the narrator who spoke clearly and had a pleasant voice. This audio book was easy to listen to. It didn't bog you down with too many details and didn't sugar coat the life of Marie Antoinette but reminded us she was human. it really made you see the danger of mob rule and mentality being allowed to run amok.

Disappointed listener of Review the Entire Life Story of Marie Antoinette

I am rather disappointed with way this story is written and by the way the narrator reads. There are mispronunciations of words and a poor use of pauses, which break up the flow of the narration. I became quite irritated with the unprofessional narration and therefore did not enjoy listening to this Audible production.

Fast history lesson

An hour and a half covers Marie's life and gives you some interesting details.

I had some issues with the volume decreasing but I am not sure if it was the recording.

I received a free copy of this book at my request and voluntarily leave this honest review.

Not great

The writing and performance are very amateur. Feels like an extended high school essay. Redeeming features are that the story is interesting so if you don’t mind robotic reading, throat clearing, bad grammar and a very partial take on Marie Antionette, then fire in.
