So Prince Charles turns out to be a complicated man. By turns sad, morose, furious, lashing out, unsure of himself, taking on causes and doing good work, foisting ill-informed opinions on everything you can think of, etc., etc. He nearly wore me out in this book alone, which makes as good a story out of all those bits as possible. But I stand by my long-held conviction that there are quite a few people in the royal family who sure as heck need a JOB.

70 years after the death of George VI comes a biography of his marriage to the former Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. "Bertie" and Elizabeth became symbols of hope during the dark days of WWII, and their example set the stage for the longest reign in British history, that of their daughter Elizabeth II. Their unexpected rise to the roles of King and Queen, caused by the abdication of Edward VIII, saw them meet the challenge head on and win their way into the people's hearts.

This book is extremely readable. I have no problems giving this a 5-star rating. It deserves it and much more.… (mer)

Enjoyable but wordy

I was so excited to read this biography of Queen Elizabeth II. I am glad I stuck with it but it could have been written in a more interesting and appealing manner. It read like a dot journal or an itinerary. Also, the author used uncommon and pretentious vocabulary. It was unnecessary and just served to make the reader have to stop and look up definitions. It was unnecessary.
