I finally finished it! Sadly, it was the juvenile version, 192 pages and about 14 point font with pictures. But I think that it might give the general idea of the larger, 400 page book.
It was not one of my favorites. I did not love any of the characters and therefore it was hard to become invested in the book. I appreciated Anna’s courage, but I heard that she overplayed her role in the progression of Siam, and so that made me not trust the telling of the story. And I really admired how the King wanted to educate his children. But I was annoyed how he went back on his promise to increase Anna’s salary — it reminded me of an old boss I had!!
