The name of the book I read is called “The Lacemaker And The Princess”, the author is Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. The book is using some nonexistent character to tell the terrible and horrible situation in French at that time. The main character is called Isabelle, who’s a poor lacemaker. She made the best friend with the princess of France. The situation for normal people at that time was pretty bad, but the life for the princess was very luxurious. Isabelle’s brother told her that people in France were planning to sponsor a revolution because the blind of the emperor. Isabelle was entangle with that thing. One day she worked as hard as she could, and was late for playing with the princess, the princess was sad about it, but Isabelle was mad, she cried and told the shabby situation for people in France to the princess. Several months later, people forced the King and his family to move to another city in France. And 2 years later, the king had been overthrown.
The theme I got is that: The emperor is foolish if he cannot see what has happened to his people, and his people in France will overthrow him. This book could clearly prove the theme I got, the king in France at that time was very “blind”, he didn’t know the bad circumstance his country was having. When the people in his country was starving, he didn’t notice that, and he overthrown by his people at last.
