Disappointing March 30 2012
By Neville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was not really expecting anything new in this biography, after all, unless the Queen gives an in-depth interview any time soon, we will have to wait until after her death for any major revelations. But I thought it still might be nice to read a well written biography in this Diamond Jubilee, and remember the ups and downs of a remarkable reign. But a few pages in I started to notice that it was not reading very smoothly; it starts with the death of King George VI, moves back to the abdication (complete with the major clanger that Elizabeth was "the King's first grandchild"), and then further back again to a summary of the lives of the Queen's parents. Call me old fashioned, but I like my biographies to run along in nice chronological order, not jump all over the place. The editor let slip through some odd sentence structures, and there seemed to be a great reliance on secondary sources. If this book was thrown together simply to cash in on the Diamond Jubilee, it certainly shows.
