Actually, I probably shouldn't review this book as I am more familiar with the approximately 600 page biography of Queen Victoria that the Countess of Longford published in 1965. It is excellent. I only mention this as one reviewer was disappointed by the length of this version. Those seeking a far more in-depth account by the same author should search for QUEEN VICTORIA-BORN TO SUCCEED.

I was expecting a bigger book, so I was surprised when this whimpy little paperback arrived. It reads more like a textbook, but is full of great information. Highly recommend if you are looking for a fact filled biography.

This book is a concise recording of the details of the life of Queen Victoria. I also bought a much larger bio, thinking I could read the smaller one first, then dig into the larger volume. Wrong! I am reading the larger one first, because it puts into perspective who all the "characters" are in this concise version. It is still a very good book. I'm just not a very good history student.

This is a smaller version of a smiliar book, and it does give an excellent overview of the life of Queen Victors. It is great for people who would like to know a bit more about the life of this Queen, but are not wanting to dig too deep into all the facts and figures surrounding her life. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has some knowledge of the Victorian Era, but does not want the longer verison of this book which is nearly 600 pages.
