review 1: This lengthy biography of Queen Victoria, her husband Prince Albert, and of their relationship is interesting except in a very few places where it bogs down a bit. I enjoyed learning this history, and the author seems to have the benefit of previous biographers and a twenty-first century outlook while maintaining a professional historian's approach. As with most ebooks, the genealogy charts and maps and such are almost impossibly small--I wish they'd fix that problem. But it's not just this book that has the problem, and I thought it was well worth reading.
review 2: I enjoyed learning more about Albert than any previous book I have read about them but found the author to be prone to finding faults with both Victoria and Albert, particularly portraying victoria
... more as immature and dependent upon Albert to perform most of her duties. It was also unfortunate that the notes were listed in the back of the book but without any reference numbers within the text as if appeared on the ebook version I was reading. less
