My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
I always liked French history, that’s why I pursued to study French Language in a college.
Some might say that Revolution was the only way to bring change, and I agree on that. But the bloody reign was not the solution….so many people died through guillotine as a traitors, only because they chose not to act and be demonstrative. Innocent die in hot pursuit of change, making the leader of the Revolution to be the executor and a despot. But the irony finds him here too…. he was executed by his followers, because he exercised uncontrollably his power to take lives, even the royal blood, while he couldn’t imagine the guillotine to become his last resting place… the very subject of his pursuit.
Lovely book… within the minutes the history runs through the pages of this book. Recommend for those who doesn’t like long boring reading material.
