Emma of Normandy is such an AMAZING figure… She deserves a better book!

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Almost every book I review gets 3 or 4 stars. So you know something is great when I give out 5 stars or really not great when I give out 2. Sadly, Emma The Twice Crowned Queen is not that great.

Her story is amazing and belongs up there with other other British Queens such as Eleanor and Elizabeth. However, this author provides us with a rather flat story that drums along recounting history without getting us dancing to the beat. The writing is dry and really forces the reader to plough through.

I wanted to give up on the book and it took me months to read. But, I made it. Still, I would not recommend it to others.
