    The Rivals of Versailles Epub ñ The RivalsMOBI rivals book, versailles book, mistresses pdf, versailles book, trilogy kindle, The Rivals download, The Rivals of Versailles KindleI enjoyed the parts that were the pov of Madame Pompadour The problem was a good portion of the novel was from the pov of Louis XV's other lovers who are uniformly presented as very young naive uncultured and ridiculously silly They all felt the same and their chapters were horribly boringThe court at Versailles was extremely sophisticated and I highly doubt noble women raised to take their place at court would be this naive about the goings on at courtThe ending was beautifully doneSpoiler belowI didn't like the story line with Pompadour acting as procurer and manager of young girls for Louis' sexual exploitation To my knowledge she was aware of but not involved with these morally reprehensible actions Wish the author hadn't t

    The Rivals of Versailles Epub ñ The RivalsMOBI rivals book, versailles book, mistresses pdf, versailles book, trilogy kindle, The Rivals download, The Rivals of Versailles KindleThe first book in this series The Sisters of Versailles hooked me Five sisters four of which were all mistresses to the same king Sounds intriguing rightSo when this one came up for review I was excited because Christie adds such wonderful rich historic detail to her story that I was eager for in this installmentThis book is less about the Nesle sisters and about the infamous Maruise de PompadourThis story is mostly told from the Jeanne’s perspective AKA Reinette so the reader gets to know her and her story rather intimately There are a few other characters who narrate but she is the primaryFrom a very young age she is told she will be the king’s mistress and when the time comes she welcomes her hate Though many in the court try to suash her power and influence she remains the King’s Favorite With each new rival I was and intrigued to see how and if she was

    The Rivals of Versailles Epub ñ The RivalsMOBI rivals book, versailles book, mistresses pdf, versailles book, trilogy kindle, The Rivals download, The Rivals of Versailles Kindle35 stars First of all I have to say that I loved the audio Elizabeth Wiley is a very talented narrator A light and easy read it does still provide a feeling for the times especially the opulence and vapidness of Versailles as well as the poverty of the rest of the nation I came to respect and really admire the Maruise de Pompadour she was an intelligent and gentle woman I felt very sad for Morphise one of the rivals but her life truly allows us a look at how sad life outside the court was Marie Anne de Mailly Rubempré and Diane brought some much needed comic relief I will be listening to the last in the seriesThe Story The Rivals of Versailles continues the story of King Louis XV and his lady loves this time focusing on the fabulous Jeanne Antoinette Poisson the Maruise de Pompadour a little girl from the m

    The Rivals of Versailles Epub ñ The RivalsMOBI rivals book, versailles book, mistresses pdf, versailles book, trilogy kindle, The Rivals download, The Rivals of Versailles KindleActual rating 45 starsI'm so mad at myself for waiting so long to pick this book up Reading it was a pleasure from start to finishLike in the first book I loved Christie’s humorous and witty style She didn't take her characters too seriously and she often made fun of them which was very entertaining The letters were once again a nice touch and sometimes highly amusing especially the ones written by Pompadour to Richelieu That being said the book also had a somber tone at times which makes me curious to see how Christie will tackle the next book The ending was also very emotional and moving Jeanne or the Maruise de Pompadour as she is known grew on me as the story progressed At first I would have liked her personality to be complex She is told as

    The Rivals of Versailles Epub ñ The RivalsMOBI rivals book, versailles book, mistresses pdf, versailles book, trilogy kindle, The Rivals download, The Rivals of Versailles KindleI received an advanced copy of this book courtesy of NetGalley All of the opinions are my own I am actually kind of disappointed that this book wasn't as much of a train wreck as the previous novel The Sisters of Versailles First I would just like to say that if the author had filled her books with the kind of writing talent she displayed in the last chapter of this novel her books would be five star reads for me The women in this book are just as one dimensional as they were before They are all a bunch of brainless magpies Sex and fancy things are the greatest motivators of the 18th century apparently Diane was back in all her moronic glory Older doesn't always make for wiser Ugh Just ugh I've never actually seen the show Reign but I imagine it watches much like this book reads Very young adult The on
