really enjoyed listening to this book, it was very well read, I so enjoyed learni g history this way
This is by far and away the best royal biography I've encountered in many years. It is a brilliant account of Victoria's eventful life which tries too to explain her personality and her opinions. Carefully supported by rich archival sources, the biography is crafted with verve and vigour and is as fresh as it is fascinating.
I can't recommend this highly enough.
The narration was exceptionally good: clear, intelligent, thoughtful.
One of the best audio books I've listened to.
Although a lover of history I knew so little about Victoria. Julia Bairds research and writing was so rich and satisfying that every chapter’s end felt like a wonder holiday drawing to an end. Every aspect from Victoria’s emotional and physical states to the politics and culture of Great Britain and Europe are explored in exquisite depth-bringing to life perhaps the greatest and most influential woman of this era. This has been a true pleasure and can’t recommend it highly enough!

Would you consider the audio edition of Victoria: The Queen to be better than the print version?
I lved the story and am still enjoying listening to it, but the voice narrating is annoying and the unnecessary long pauses to indicate direct speech are annoying
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
voice narrating is annoying because of the unnecessary long pauses to indicate direct speech
