    One thought on “I, Victoria”

    1. Wir schreiben das Jahr 1900 Viktoria I. erinnert sich in ihren schlaflosen Nächten an ihr Leben. In schönen Worten und einem fesselnden Schreibstil erzählt sie über ihre Eltern, ihre Kindheit, den frühen Tod ihres Vaters, über die Hörigkeit ihrer Mutter zu dem geld- und machtgierigen John Conroy, der ihr das Leben zur Hölle macht, ihren Aufstieg zur Königin und dann ihre Zeit mit Albert, der Liebe ihres Lebens. Albert und Viktoria diese große Liebesgeschichte nimmt sehr viel Raum in di [...]

    2. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It felt so much like I was reading an autobiography that I often forgot that I wasn't. I felt like I really got to know Queen Victoria, and learned that she was a very fascinating, funny and very human queen.

    3. The most beautiful and powerful love story you have ever read Romeo and Juliet was fictional This is the real story of Romeo and Juliet's love

    4. This is set up as a journal written by Queen Victoria during her last year. She writes of her entire life interspered with comments about the political and family happenings of the day (the Boer War, etc.)I found it to be an interesting book with more of the humor than one typically thinks of in relation to Victoria. (One of the most frightening pictures I have ever seen is of Victoria as an old lady smiling.) The life of Victoria lends itself well to this treatment as she lived such a long and [...]

    5. This book was GREAT! Sometimes I forgot someone besides Queen Victoria wrote this book. It really is "the autobiography Queen Victoria would have written". I thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.

    6. An enjoyable read, and plausible as an "autobiography". It did get a bit draggy near the end where the focus shifted more to national events and away from family life, but overall well-written and enjoyable.

    7. This book is out of print. I originally got it at the library but wanted a copy of my own, which I found online. Everyone I've loaned this book to has loved it. It's the story of Queen Victoria's life, written as if it were an autobiography.

    8. NOT for me. I want to read about Victoria being queen. I couldn't care less about her aunt's indigestion or the palace decorations. I was so put off by the first few pages, I moved on to something else.

    9. Historical fiction at its best. Stays true to the actual events but has a way of weaving in certain fictional details that make it perfect all round!:))
