    MOBI education reference.co Á The Second Empress PDF ì The Second PDF/EPUB ² second pdf, empress pdf, The Second free, The Second Empress ePUBWhere I got the book electronic ARC from EdelweissI don't think I've read a novel about Napoleon this one doesn't really count since Désirée so Moran gets points for tackling what feels to me like a neglected historical niche unless there's a whole slew of Napoleon books I don't know about somewhere This story covers the latter part of the French Emperor's reign when Napoleon starts getting dynastic ambitions and divorces Joséphine so that he can bring in Austrian princess Marie Louise as a brood mare And then decides that it would be a really good idea to invade RussiaThe story is told from the point of view of three characters the aforesaid Austrian princess Napoleon's sister Pauline and her Haitian chamberlain Paul Moreau And that for me is the biggest flaw in the book and it's a doozy Let's just run over the plot lines which are uite juicy in themselves Marie Louise is coerced into marriage with Napoleon by the threat of what he could otherwise do to the defeated Hapsburg

    MOBI education reference.co Á The Second Empress PDF ì The Second PDF/EPUB ² second pdf, empress pdf, The Second free, The Second Empress ePUBWhat an incredibly pleasant surprise I ended up loving this bookI have little interest in Napoleon up till now but this book has sparked great curiosity How did this family become so damned dysfunctional? And they really are a messed up crew Between Napoleon and his sister Paulina there is constant insanity in this book Both are selfish suspicion jealous very cruel and conniving Napoleon's greed brings him down as we know And Paulina's nymphomania seems the culprit for her demise Lol I'm serious Together the two feed off their shared ambition and perhaps even shared lust Yep It is one heck of a story Lastly I don't want to leave out the book's namesake Marie Louise of Austria who was the grand niece of Marie Antoinette Napoleon picked her for her noble blood and ability to have children Obviously it is deeply ironic that the ueen of England was beheaded during the r

    MOBI education reference.co Á The Second Empress PDF ì The Second PDF/EPUB ² second pdf, empress pdf, The Second free, The Second Empress ePUBThe Second Empress focused on the last few years of Napoleon’s reign The author looked at this chaotic period through 3 people with different views – Pauline Paul and Marie Louise After reading this book I came to realize that I know so little about Napoleon’s rise and fall After reading this book I also felt that this book did n

    MOBI education reference.co Á The Second Empress PDF ì The Second PDF/EPUB ² second pdf, empress pdf, The Second free, The Second Empress ePUBThe best part of this book was all the history of Napoleon Bonaparte I think the author lured readers into this book by putting a woman on the front cover but she wasn't even the focus of the book whereas Napoleon and his sister Pauline were I did not like how the story was told by three narrators alternating each chapter These were Napoelon's wife the Empress Maria Lucia his sister Pauline and Pauline's servant Paul that loved her I thought Paul's narration was pointless and made the story focus on Pauline rather than the Empress who was supposed to be the focus of the book per its title I wanted of her internal monologue emotions and feelings Instead most of the book was about Pauline's slew of STDs and her desire to be her brother's wife Other than that it was pretty shallow reading It did make me look up the history of Napoleon and enjoy much discussi
