Review: The Man in the Iron Mask: The Mystery Solved

User Review  - Ewa - Goodreads

The beginning was promising but farther I went with reading it soon turned to opposite and to finish the book became hard slog till it's very end. I found the mode of writing very unangaging as for my tastes. Read full review

Review: The Man in the Iron Mask: The Mystery Solved

User Review  - Gnuehc Ecnerwal - Goodreads

The version I read does not have the ":The Mystery Solved" in the title. I wouldn't have bought the book if it did. This is like reading juicy gossips from another era. Tremendously enjoyable but dubious in historical accuracy. Good for reading on the beach, etc. Read full review
