Was the narrator just too bored?
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No. It is a plodding narration of what should be a fascinating reliving of an amazing time and amazing characters. Instead it is a monotone regurgitation of facts.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I love all the characters..
Would you be willing to try another one of Jennifer M. Dixon’s performances?
Do you think Queen Victoria's Children needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Well this is a ridiculous question.
Any additional comments?
I held on till the end, but so utterly disappointed.

Interesting and full of great information!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Felt it was fair and not a fluff piece like some others I've read on Victoria. The queen and her family were so incredibly complex. I could probably read this again and learn even more bc some of the global context was a bit lost on me (would need to brush up on my European history a bit). But I felt I followed along well enough and enjoyed getting to know her children and their personalities and individual stories. The narration was okay. Definitely recommend it for anyone interested in THE Victorian family.
