      eBook Christopher Hibbert ↠ ↠ Queen Victoria A Personal History PDF/EPUB ´ Victoria queen pdf, victoria epub, personal epub, history pdf, Queen Victoria epub, A Personal kindle, Victoria A Personal book, Queen Victoria A Personal History Kindleueen Victoria was as AN Wilson described her a 'loveable monster' wilful stubborn capricious demanding but also capable of great charm and insight compassionate utterly without prejudice as to class caste race or religion but insistent to the nth degree on the minutiae of court protocol and precedent She was a tremendously contradictory figure and yet even today her influence lingers on Modern Britain is still very much Victoria's BritainIn this engaging biography Hibbert really manages to capture her personality so that she becomes than just the symbol of an Empire and an age but a real vital and vivid individual This is not a history of Victoria's time or reign as the title state

      eBook Christopher Hibbert ↠ ↠ Queen Victoria A Personal History PDF/EPUB ´ Victoria queen pdf, victoria epub, personal epub, history pdf, Queen Victoria epub, A Personal kindle, Victoria A Personal book, Queen Victoria A Personal History KindleThis is a long book about a long life lived under intense scrutiny even when she withdrew from public view I especially appreciated the insights into the contradictions of her attitudes such as being against women's suffrage while being herself one of the most powerful women on earth The inclusion of so many of her own words made her seem accessible as an actual person rather than an historical personage I've been fascinated with the Industrial Revolution for a very long time ever since I realized it wasn't the boring classroom topic with all the human drama sueezed out of it I've been interested in these years of the high watermark of the British Empire and how the English could be so carefully polite at home but wreak terror on the people of other nations The years of approximately 1830 1930 hold the most interest for me historically HM ueen Victoria lived during most of this time and left her stamp on everything Everything Hibbert's book is very

      eBook Christopher Hibbert ↠ ↠ Queen Victoria A Personal History PDF/EPUB ´ Victoria queen pdf, victoria epub, personal epub, history pdf, Queen Victoria epub, A Personal kindle, Victoria A Personal book, Queen Victoria A Personal History KindleI stopped at chapter 27 In the beginning it was interesting and I understood what was going on but after awhile it just droned on and on and on and I got really bored of it It is an interesting book but you really have to be committed to finish reading it I think if there were a few less adjectives and maybe not so many really long and detailed footnotes it might be a bit shorter
