Reviews about historical, literary, classic, and other fiction. Miscellaneous book things.
I have mixed feelings about this book. Some of the Clark family history was pretty interesting, but most of the focus on Huguette's adult life was not so much. I felt a bit sad for this woman, who clearly did not cope with change (or life in general) in a very healthy way. Eventually it felt like I was just reading lists of high-end transactions (and all such a waste of money), and the court battle over her estate was bothersome, to say the least. Perhaps the book was just too long for what it covered; had it been shorter, it might have been more enjoyable.
