An enthralling work of historical fiction set during the Golden Age of the Habsburg court, Sisi is a gripping page-turner for readers of Philippa Gregory, Paula McLain, and Daisy Goodwin/5. Sisi tells the little-known story of Empress Elisabeth of Austria-Hungary, the Princess Diana of her time, in an enthralling work of historical fiction that is also a gripping page-turner. Sisi: Myth and Truth by Katrin Unterreiner This book focuses on Elisabeth’s death and from it explores how this event created the myth and the icon of Sisi. Since Sisi was an emotion-centered person, the book therefore is also emotion centered, and it tends to take Sisi’s side more than a nonfiction book might, somewhat glossing over her contributions to the unhappiness of her marriage and to the tragic mess Rudolf makes of his short life/5().
When we last left Sisi, in the first volume, she was rebelling against the strictures of her life at the Viennese court as the consort of Emperor Franz Joseph. In particular, she was defying her mother-in-law, Archduchess Sophie, who had not only exacerbated Sisi’s estrangement from Franz, but appropriated the upbringing of her three children. This was a fantastic biography of Empress Elisabeth ('Sisi'). What I liked most was how Hamann chose to organize it thematically rather than chronologically. For example, there was a chapter on Sisi's involvement with Hungarian politics, a chapter on her horse and hunting obsession, and a chapter on (of course) her strange beauty by: 5.
