Sadly, I am the kind of reader that no matter how bad the book I have to finish it. I struggled to finish this book. I had not read the first book about this Empress but I never will now.
The story was boring at best. The author wrote in a way that I could not tell if she was referring to her perceptions or reality. This woman sounded like she was continually unhappy and a martyr. I did not see her as a strong leader or someone to be a role model.
The narration was awful. Accents were excellent but the monotone presentation was the biggest reason for my struggle to finish this book. The emotionless delivery was also part of why the empress sounded more like a martyred wimp!!
Don't bother with this book.

The long pauses between chapters and paragraphs is disconcerting as I kept thinking my player was causing problems. There were too many things described in the story that weren't available in China at the time, such as French hair dye, cupcakes, dollars etc. My students were confused.
