Short and Sweet: I have been eyeing Revolution pretty much since its release. Love historical novels especially the tragic ones. Anne Boleyn. Marie Antoinette. Their lives, their triumphs and downfalls are uterly captivating. Revolution's premise (two girls drawn together through the reaches of time) drew me in, but I stayed for the historical element. What an amazing journey! Donnelly takes readers into parts of French history like no one has before. It was utterly breathtaking.Verdict: Revolution has so many deep and complex layers. It is a story on top of a story, on top of another. Blended together so perfectly. I am not sure what made this book so magical; the characters or the history. Both were enchanting. If you have ever been curious about the French Revolution or Marie Antoinette, then Revolution is a must read!
