Part vixen, part kickass heroine, she was more queen than any of her contemporaries—or (arguably) any queen in history, for that matter.
This book (more YA than fullblown historical fiction) somehow managed to capture the Duchess of Aquitaine's razzle and dazzle in 200 pages.
Interesting concept, witty writing.
This is a quick and funny read about the life of Eleanor of Aquitaine as a wife, a mother, and a queen.
The story follows her in heaven along with three of her closest contemporaries (Abbot Suger, Empress Matilda and William Marshal) as they await the divine judgement that will allow—or deny—Eleanor’s second husband King Henry II admittance to heaven.
Henry is already 800 years dead, but he's still in hell serving penance and in the dark about the comings and goings on of the world (in the story, a soul in hell is knowledgedeprived of all earthly affairs).
Eleanor can’t wait for Henry to come Up so she can help him catch up on everything he’s missed while in hell.
As the verdict draws near and Eleanor’s patience runs thin, she and her companions decide to pass the time by amusing themselves with memori I especially anticipated reading this book for a couple of reasons.
1I love other books by this author especially From the MixedUp Files of Mrs.
Frankweiler andJennifer, Hecate, McBeth, William McKinley and Me, Elizabeth.
2The book tells the story of Eleanor of Aquitaine, from whom, I am decended.
I really liked the execution of the unfolding of the story.
Eleanor is in heaven with people she knew during her mortal life, they are awaiting the decision of whether or not her husband King Henry II has paid enough penance time in hell and will finally be admitted into heaven.
They begin remanicing and three different people take turns telling the others Eleanor's life story from their perspective.
Finally Eleanor herself takes over and gives a brief sy I'm sure there are some who didn't like this book, but I thought it was pretty well done especially since it was written in the late 1970s.
The book is about Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, who is one of my favorite historical women in history.
I especially liked how the tale was narrated from heaven by contemporaries of Eleanor, and how she has been in heaven for 500 more years than her husband Henry, who is about to find out if he can come up to heaven.
I thought it was amusing that both Eleanor, the Abbot and the Empress had to spend a little time in hell before making it up to heaven.
The first narrator was Abbot Suger, who helped design the first Gothic Cathedral (St.
Denis) and the first use of stained glass in a church, and talked about her first marriage to King Louis VII.
The title alludes to Eleanor's love of luxury, in a stat The historical fiction part of this book was good and very well written, but the rest of it (the part that takes place in Heaven) was wierd and not really how I see things, so that put my rating down a bit.
This book makes out Heaven to be some boring place that is not to look forward to and is not at all fun, and that is not how Heaven is.
This book says that you do not go directly to Heaven either.
It says that when you die you don't go to Heaven unless you are good enough, and even if you are good enough, you don't go to Heaven until you have made up for all of the bad things that you have done.
Instead you go "below" to make up for your sins.
This book says that you get to Heaven because of what you've done on earth.
That you get to Heaven by what you do, and your works of rightousness, which I do not believe at all.
I also believe that Heaven is an awesome, fun, nos I chose to read this book because I have enjoyed all the books I have currently read by EL Konigsburg.
This was was SO different; especially since I had no idea what it was about before starting it.
It is actually historical fiction/fantasy.
it is about Queen Eleanor and King Henry II back in the twelfth century.
Konigsburg states in the front fold of the book that all facts and events about Eleanor in the book are true, which makes it a very interesting book.
I definitely want to read more about her now.
The book is written from the point of view of Eleanor, her mother in law, and a former Marshal who have all died and are telling their stories from heaven.
I would recommend this book especially to someone who loves to read about OLD royalty.
It is written as a book for youth, but I would think a youth reader would need a bit of a history lesson BEFORE read
A lot of 'telling' in this one, but it works—takes some cues from Chaucer, perhaps? Anyway, Eleanor of Aquitaine has been dragging around in Heaven for quite some time, and she is just a wee bit bored and quite tetchy, and it pleases me greatly.
Interesting choice of who gets to tell the tale: in addition to Eleanor (who gets the last words, as befits a queen), Abbot Suger (who is very proud of his own humility) tells a part, and Empress Matilda, and William the Marshall—unusual choices, in some ways.
Lots of history with a healthy dose of snark, basically.
My only real complaint is that Eleanor's section—about her last fifteen years of life, after Henry II died—is rather rushed through; I'd have been interested to read more about that.
Still, this is one of my favourite pi I read this book, like so many of Konigsburg's, over and over as a kid.
I was probably the only fifth grader at my school who not only knew who Eleanor of Aquitaine was, but could rattle off details of her life as easily as talking about an old friend.
The wonderful, personal way that this book is written makes it easy to read and remember the details of Eleanor's life, and I am pretty much still waiting for Konigsburg or another author to do the same thing for other historical figures.
Reading this book prompts me to sport a rhinestone tiara and play Queen for the Day.
It's about Elinor of Aquitaine, the ruthless woman who was first Queen of France, then Queen of England.
A Proud Taste for Scarlet and Miniver depicts Elinor waiting for her second husband, King Henry II, to be judged for admission to Heaven.
If you're the type of woman who hates waiting in line, taking orders, or being called "hon," this book is for you.
You'll take great comfort in the story of a woman who road barebreasted to The Crusades.
Fans of this book may also enjoy THE LION IN WINTER, starring the fabulous Katharine Hepburn as Elinor in exile.
