I would have given this book 4 stars except I would have liked backstory on Elisabeth s family and position and at 93 pages the book definitely had space to do so I mean I didn t even know Poppy was her father until she mentions him having other children I also felt like there was a big disconnect between the diary portion and the historical note and not just because the historical note doesn t really focus on Elisabeth Elisabeth apparently became known as a fashion icon later in life so why not introduce little nuggets like this in the diary part Make a stronger connection to the actual historical figure

I wasn t sure who this one was about but I am glad I picked it up I never realized how long the Hapsburg s ruled Austria I felt kind of bad for Elisabeth s sister Helene because she had worked so hard to my a good empress and then when they arrived the Emperor didn t want anything to do with her it was all very sad I had hoped that since Elisabeth and Franz Joseph actually started out in lust with one another that maybe they would be one of the few royal couples to have a happy ending but alas it was not to be I disliked her Aunt Sophie and couldn t figure out what the big deal was with her dislike of Elisabeth As far as I could tell Elisabeth was polite than she had any reason to be to her husbands mother and it was also extremely frustrating that Franz Joseph wouldn t stand up for Elisabeth to his mother Momma s boys are so unattractive I also think it is sad that her life ended by being stabbed I mean where were her guards at that crucial moment I think I will have to start reading up on the Hapsburg s now I didn t realize how important they were until this book

Elisabeth The Princess Bride Austria Hungary 1853 characters ↠ 9 Barry Denenberg ✓ 9 characters characters × E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Barry Denenberg Author Barry Denenberg brings us into the whirlwind that is the life of Princess Elisabeth of Austria A free and impetuous spirit Elisabeth is chosen at the age of fiftee. I loved the Royal Diaries books when I was younger and along with the Dear America series and American Girls they started a lifelong love of history for me As an adult I have no ualms about occasionally reading one or two when nostalgia kicks in because they re generally well done and I still enjoy them Anyway I m on a search for good historical fiction about Empress Elisabeth Sisi and thought this would be worth picking up never got around to reading this particular RD volume when I was a kid somehowIt is uite short even for a YA book the story covers just 93 pages The author chose to focus on the short time period when 15 year old Sisi caught Franz Joseph s eye and became engaged to him Her diary details her time with her family her meetings with the Emperor and her bewilderment at being unexpectedly chosen as his bride The author captured the viewpoint of a 15 year old girl well and incorporated some of Sisi s signature personality traits including her vanity dreaminess and independence However I didn t feel any real emotion in the narrative For example Sisi repeatedly states that she is attached to her father Poppy and her siblings but there aren t many scenarios fictional or otherwise presented to add depth to these assertions Additionally I picked up on a bit of a disconnect between the girl presented in the diary and the woman the author discussed in the Afterword Sisi was intelligent gifted with languages and passionately devoted to the cause of Hungarian independence but these important aspects of her are barely touched on in the story Perhaps my view of the novel is colored by the fact that I m no longer the target demographic for this series but I don t think that I would have been satisfied with it even as a younger reader I ll allow that this would be a decent and age appropriate introduction to a fascinating historical figure for a much younger audience but I didn t find it satisfying
