  • By Alexander Hedge on 28 September 2016

    A book that keeps you turning the pages to see what happens. Highly recommended and deserves the rating. Excellent read.

    He made use of The Greville Memoirs for Queen Victoria which is another set to the original 8 volume edition brought out by Henry Reeve, Greville's friend & executor in 1887. Since both sets are practically unobtainable, I must have bought highlights - have read The Greville Memoirs Selected by Christopher Lloyd, Macmillan to find out exactly! "Leaves from The Greville Diary was published by Philip Morrell in 1929". Bernard Shaw also used Macmillan publishers obviously earlier. See my review of Lytton Strachey by Holroyd on my Profile page.

    Although it was written a hundred and twenty years ago I found it quite frank in its descriptions of the private life of Victoria and her relationships with her prime ministers. Easy to read, not to academic so you don't get long and lengthy interpretations, just the facts written well.

    A wonderful, entertaining and informative account, particularly of Victoria's happy early years of childhood and marriage, so overshadowed in popular memory by her years of widowhood. Full of psychological insight and, no doubt tendentious, but none the less thought-provoking, political implication.Better than nothing if it's otherwise out of print, but this 1st World Library, scanned, paperback edition of this book comes with nothing in the way of scholarly introduction, notes or editing, apart from Strachey's own. Instead we have the publishers' self-trumpeted dedications to world literacy - vacuous when, for instance, Strachey's French quotes and asides are all offered without a single accent, such as: "si nous ne nous hations pas, l'heritier viendrait avant le mari." Which should read: "si nous ne nous hâtions pas, l'héritier viendrait avant le mari." If you think that doesn't matter, Strachey's probably too literate and educated for you.

    This was written quite soon after Victoria died. It was a good read. Most of the books on Vicoria I have read have been very recent and deal with the "scandel" in glorious technicolour. This book kind of veers around too much unpleasantness so you get a feel on how being in the Victorian era could be! I enjoyed it and it was the first book I read on my Kindle.

    Having seen the story of Queen Victoria's life on television it was good to have it all written down in an easy to read book.This is a historical account that is easy understand and brings her story to life.
